More than just a place to lay their head, students' personal living spaces need to convey home comfort and a sense of security as well as providing the practical amenities required of apartment style living. As design trends continue to "bring the outside in", flooring emulating natural materials such as wood delivers best aesthetic appeal. However options such as laminates and even the real thing itself do little to contribute to the acoustic performance of the space, and ultimately the comfort of the students living there.
In student living areas, a floor covering needs to have:
• Soft, natural aesthetics
• Be comfortable and warm underfoot
• Excellent acoustic properties to reduce and contain noise where possible
A good day starts with a good night's sleep.

Acoustics & indentation resistance
Reduced noise pollution is key for reducing stress and promoting wellbeing, particularly in living spaces. And when it comes to reducing noise in buildings, acoustic floors are key.
The Sarlon acoustic vinyl range’s floor coverings have been developed and tested to maximise impact sound reduction in heavy traffic commercial spaces, while maintaining minimum residual indentation.
