Flooring for a home gym
I'm looking for suggestions for the best flooring to put in a bedroom we're going to be using as a gym in our house. It's a pretty small room, so I'm not too concerned about cost.
The current floor is carpeting, which we're replacing regardless of what we decide to go with. The floor immediately outside is wood. At one time I had thought a wood floor in the gym might look nice, but not when it's going to be butting up against another wood floor (which is not the kind of wood I'd want in the gym and would probably be impossible to match anyway).
We are also replacing the carpet in the next bedroom over, and have been planning on using a fairly short pile (I hope that's the right term) carpet in there. So one thought is just to use the same carpet. But part of me wants something even shorter in the gym, and I think it might be weird to have them both have carpet but not to have it match.
I'm also sure there are concerns I haven't thought of, so lay it on me.
