Hot Rocks Flooring from Barefoot Living

On cold, dark winter mornings, imagine taking the first steps of the day on warm, therapeutic floors that create harmony in the home.

A stunning floor that combines a unique, foot massaging finish, Hot Rocks comprises of marble pebbles, brought to life in a clear resin finish.

Underfloor heating, which can be installed beneath the surface, gives out warmth that is retained by the marble for hours.

The result is a seamless, slip resistant surface that brings the beauty and harmony – and the strength and durability – of nature underfoot, suitable for all areas of the home, including conservatories and the surrounds of indoor pools.

Hot Rocks is the first floor to be launched from Barefoot Living UK – and is initially available in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Manchester. It will be available nationally in early Spring.

Barefoot Living is a new business venture, which creates a range of floors, all designed to encourage people to lose their shoes and enjoy the feeling of freedom underfoot.

It is the brainchild of entrepreneur Dawn Gibbins MBE, a former Veuve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year. Earlier this year Dawn sold her South Cheshire based global business Flowcrete - which she built up from a start-up in the 1980s to a major international company with offices in 30 countries - for millions of pounds.

Through Barefoot Living, Dawn is now able to combine her love of flooring with her passion for health, wellbeing and Feng Shui.

Based in Bosley, on the outskirts of Congleton in Cheshire, the company is due to open a showroom facility at its offices in the New Year. Other products including Smoothies, contemporary shiny resin ‘poured’ floors in all colours of the rainbow, and Cool Rocks, stone flooring for driveways and patio areas, are due out in 2009.

Dawn said: “This is a really exciting venture, the floors are unique and are already receiving a great deal of interest. They are seamless and installed in-situ, so require no maintenance and are designed to create beauty and harmony in the home.

“I’m very excited to be bringing years of flooring expertise to home interiors, with a new concept that is a revolutionary in the marketplace.”
