    Is your concrete stained or just painted? I have plain concrete right now with carpet squares in strategic places but the plan is to stain the quilting room like the rest of the rooms. I think I want a low pile rug in my sewing machine/cutting/ironing area for comfort and coziness.

    I've been reading all the posts. Laminate seems very popular. Has anyone used cork flooring? I have hardwood floors upstairs and my office rolling chair has marred the floor (guess I should sweep more often!) We have not finished the downstairs quilting room which is still unfinished concrete. Suggestions? Oh, I live out in the country with 3 dogs that go in and out. Is it hopeless to have nice floors??

    I had Pergo in my last sewing room, the information said rubber wheels were necessary but I couldn't find any and wasn't going to not sew because of it. I never saw a mark on the floor with almost daily use for 4 years. The only thing that scratched the floor was when moving a bookcase that didn't get picked all the way up. Oh well stuff happens. Final word, don't worry about rubber wheels!

    Have had laminate flooring for five years. Wheels of office chair have not damaged floor at all. Extremely east to Swiffer up all the thread tails, etc. Love it!

    My sewing room was originally my den. It has split brick. I love the floor. It is easy to keep clean. I do have problems with my chair rolling sometimes. We have hardwood floors through the rest of the house. I had my sewing room in one of the bedrooms,(I loved having the hardwood floors but worried about them getting scratched) but I hated having to bring customers through the house. The den is at the back door off of the carport so people don't can come straight into my sewing room.

    I have carpet in my sewing room, with a mat under my sewing chair. Helps for warmth-due to physical needs.

    *I'd suggest using "commercial grade" laminate. Does not scratch or dent like regular laminate can. I have it in my kitchen, and wouldn't have anything else!!

    I have painted concrete in my basement studio. It's working ok but have only been using the space for a year. Not sure about the long term.

    It depends upon the choice and your needs.
    You must clear you ideas and your requirements to get good results and suggestions here.
    Mostly people like hardwood floor and it is quite good also.
    But it mostly depends upon the own choice of man.

I was thinking of putting up temporary wall in front of the garage doors. Can not fiqure out how to cover up the garage door opening mec that is on the celing so the oils do not drip on my quilting stuff. Can you and or anyone else that has ideas HELP I really want to get my room set up I am tired of having to always put my quilting away when I have guest or grandchildren come over. thank you yippie
    Idea. Put your temporary wall up 3 feet in. Add an door , you have an extra storage space and a free wall for design. Could you quilt a cover (Bag) line it with plastic and put over opening mec. put towel inside, check occasionally.
