Hot Rocks from Barefoot Living

Hot Rocks stimulates the freedom of barefoot living.

A revolution in flooring in the UK is helping to breathe new life into the traditional spring clean, maintaining a fresh, bright and clutter free feel in the home.

Barefoot Living has introduced a new range of seamless floors, with unique qualities to keep homes in great shape – whatever the time of year.

These include Hot Rocks, a stunning floor comprising of marble pebbles, brought to life in a clear resin finish, which creates a unique, foot massaging 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.

As well as looking stunning, the floor needs minimal care to can keep its crisp, clean look – offering a superb canvas underfoot to clear the clutter and keep the look.

Andrea Hall, Barefoot Living’s senior designer said: “Hot Rocks stimulates the freedom of barefoot living.

“It is the perfect choice to create a sanctuary in the home, enhancing health and well-being, restoring balance and taking away the stresses of the day.

“The floor provides a great platform to clear a home of clutter, and then – crucially – maintain that standard.

“The unique cleanability means Hot Rocks maintains its great fresh feel long after its installation. Because there are no fibres, no dirt gets trapped – and dust mites and odours are given the brush off.

“For day-to-day cleaning, Hot Rocks just needs to be vacuumed. The texture of the floor means this delivers great results, removing animal hair, dirt and dust easily and effectively.

“Spillages that could ruin conventional carpet can also be easily dealt with too.

“Liquids such as red wine – and even something more difficult like curry – can just be wiped up – and then a carpet cleaner used to return Hot Rocks to its pristine condition.

“And unlike tiles, the sealed surface means no grouted joints, so dirt really does have nowhere to hide.”

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.

Last year Dawn sold her 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.

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

Based in Cheshire, the company is due to open a showroom facility at its offices in spring 2009. 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 to launch later this year.
