Bounce Flooring from Barefoot Living

Mums at flooring company Barefoot Living have put their heads together to bring a new surface to life – with kids in mind.

Bounce is a seamless floor that gives a springy, easy to clean finish, available in a range of bright, bold colours and styles to make each one unique.

Ideal for nurseries and even children’s play areas at home, the floor measures up in four important areas – it’s ‘green,’ safe, durable and creative.

Barefoot Living’s designers, Andrea Hall, a mum of three, and Tamara Fearon, a mum of two - together with office manager Karen Nobes, a mum of twin boys, collaborated on the floor’s design to get the right finish.

Bounce is installed by Barefoot Living’s own expert, highly trained team.

Cheshire-based Barefoot Living is led by entrepreneur Dawn Gibbins MBE, herself a mother of two teenage daughters, who gave the ‘Barefoot mums’ a free rein to come up with the type of floor that could make a difference to youngsters’ home and nursery environments – and put a real spring in their step.

Dawn said: “Our mums wanted something that was safe, sustainable and easy to look after.

“The floor is nice and springy, so it absorbs knocks and bumps, but it is still really hard-wearing and - because it’s seamless and a sealed surface - it’s easy to clean too.

“It is a great surface for children to stretch their little toes and walk barefoot.

“Recycled materials are also used in the floor, so it does its bit for the environment too.

“Bounce looks great. A wide-range of colours and styles can be chosen, so the floor can really make a nursery or playroom bright and inviting.

“It just shows what mums can do when they are able to bounce ideas together.”

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 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 Spring.

‘Grown-up’ floors available include Hot Rocks, a heated marble carpet surface, Smoothies, which are contemporary shiny resin ‘poured’ floors in all colours of the rainbow, and Cool Rocks, stone flooring for driveways and patio areas.

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