Planning a home gym? Consider Neolith

Ultra compact Neolith in Beton.

Whether you set aside a little space, or a lot (if you have it), a home gym is a convenient, practical, and more private way to stay healthy and fit. If a home gym is a part of your remodeling project, you’ll want to check out Neolith surfacing. Neolith offers a wide variety of benefits in a home gym, from keeping the space sanitary to creating sleek style.

First of all, you may be wondering…what is Neolith? It’s an ultra-compact surface that’s made up of 100 percent natural materials including clay, feldspar, silica, and mineral oxide. The exceptionally thin sheets are manufactured in Spain through a high-tech process that results in a lightweight, waterproof material. Neolith is resistant to scratching, stains, UV rays, cold, heat, and fire/smoke. Neolith can be used for just about any surfacing application you can think of, both inside and out. It’s great for flooring, wall cladding, countertops, furniture, and more.

So what makes Neolith so great for a home gym? Here are just a few of its noteworthy attributes:


Neolith is exceptionally durable. It can handle very high traffic and abrasion, both inside and out. Acidic liquids and harsh cleaners that will slowly but surely ruin marble or granite won’t harm the look of Neolith, not even over time. The floors and walls of your home gym will be able to stand up to anything you can dish out.

Naturally Fights Bacteria

Since Neolith is almost completely impervious to liquids (it’s porosity is about as close to zero as you can get), it’s considered to be a very hygienic surface. Feel free to break a sweat. The surface won’t absorb or harbor bacteria. Since bacteria can’t take foothold on Neolith, microscopic germs can be very easily wiped away.

Easy to Clean

Since Neolith is virtually non-porous, even the strongest home cleaning products won’t harm the surface. But frequent wiping with a clean, damp cloth can keep the surface of Neolith from requiring anything harsh to begin with. Plus, since Neolith comes in massive sheets in a variety of lengths and widths, the grout joints can be kept to a minimum. Reducing the seams or grout lines not only helps with creating a sleek, uninterrupted look. It also significantly reduces the places where dirt, grime, and germs can collect. A continuous, smooth surface is far easier to clean.

Seamless Installation

As mentioned, Neolith comes in very long, thin sheets. This makes installation far easier than with your typical natural stone material. It also makes it simple to design long runs of surfaces, such as flooring or walls, with few seams. Neolith comes in sheets up to 144-inches long. The company also recently introduced a tile in a 5-ft. by 5-ft. size. This speaks to today’s overall trend toward large format tiles, plus offers plenty of options for creating a seamless home gym space.

Exciting Design Possibilities

When it comes to design, seamless surfaces offer some pretty exciting possibilities. There are countless ways to blend both overall spaces and individual elements seamlessly into their surroundings for a sleek, minimal look. Since Neolith comes in a rainbow of colors and is thin enough to install over virtually any flat surface, there are no design limits. Plus, its color stability is guaranteed to last over time. Neolith offers a modern look that’s virtually maintenance-free!
