View Full Version : Home Studio Flooring...

My question about paint color has been answered, but what is the best type of flooring to have in a studio?? The room I am converting is currently carpeted. I just received my first backdrop, a roll of seamless paper. It seems that if this was used on carpet it would get damaged pretty easily by walking on it. I was thinking about ripping up the carpet and going with a Pergo or something similar. What do you think??? Thanks

The flooring might depend on your tripod, or vice versa.
Tripod rubber feet would be good on a hard surface like Pergo. Metal spike feet would be good on a soft surface. A rolling studio tripod would be good on a hard surface.

Well, when I started I had concrete! I don't have a reception area, so I figured carpet wasn't needed. I chose to go with an industrial tile like in a school. Cheap, easy to clean, durable, dull finish, grey like the walls. Very flat surface with no ridges.
I like rolling my paper or fabric/muslin on down to the floor and sometimes I need to duct tape it in place. The residue, which isn't much, is easy to clean off. High heels won't dent it on this floor, nor will props, etc.
The other thing is that this will be easy to cover someday if I want to use the space for something else. It is a separate building from my house, don't know what else it could be, but you get the idea!

That's called VCT (Vinyl Composition Tile). Great stuff and wears almost like concrete! :)
