If you’re looking for a floor that is soft, warm, and comfortable but provides the look of hardwood floors, our Wood Grain Reversible Tiles might be a product you’ll be interested in. They are called reversible because you can also flip them upside down and display the tan side instead of the wood grain side.
Santina L. bought some and she was very impressed. Here’s what she had to say:
“We used the tiles for our basement project where we created two rooms for our teenage daughters. The concrete floors were professionally waterproofed 2 months prior but still had a lot of irregularity in shape and contour.”
Foam is a great product for basements. Although it doesn’t sound as though Santina’s basement will have any issues with water, many basements do. Foam is waterproof and doesn’t absorb moisture into the material. Unlike a carpet pad, which is destroyed the first time it gets wet, foam will simply dry out as soon as it’s removed from the damp area. Once the area is dried, it can go right back down as good as new.
“The installation went like a dream. The tiles were easy to lay and easy to cut to fit the odd shape of the rooms.” (Installing foam tiles wall-to-wall is a simple process. All you need is a straightedge and a sharp razor and you can cut your tiles to fit.)
“The connecting tiles were great to connect the floors in both rooms through the pocket door in the center. It took us about an hour to lay the two rooms and the closet. We used a board and a straight edged T-square and a box cutter to cut the tiles to fit. It really saved us from having to even out the floors.”
Another nice thing about foam: it doesn’t require any adhesives or special surface to attach to. If you have a hard, flat, indoor surface, you’re in business.
“We would definitely buy the tiles again. Our son is jealous already that they have such cool floors. They are nice to walk on and cover the unevenness of the concrete wonderfully. Even a room full of teenage girls though it was comfortable to sleep on. The wood grain in the tiles looks like wood floors if you look quick and people are shocked that they are foam. What a cool product.”
Thank you, Santina. Would you recommend Greatmats to your friends?
“Yes, we would recommend you and already have. Price was great, product arrived in a timely fashion, well before we needed them, and are fun to use.”
