Mums at flooring company Barefoot Living have put their heads together to bring a new surface to life – with kids in mind. 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 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.
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.” Find out more at http://www.barefoot.co.uk
