Customer Review-Premium Foam Mats

Amy H. found an interesting way to use our premium 5/8″ foam mats.  While these mats are commonly used in kids play rooms, those rooms are usually in a house.  🙂

“We bought the tiles to go in our 1-1/2 year-old’s playroom in our fifth wheel travel trailer we just bought.  It has a vinyl type flooring that resembles wood.  We wanted it to have more cushion for safety and also we wanted it to look pretty and colorful like a playroom should,” Amy says.


Premium 5/8″ foam mats come in fifteen vibrant colors so it’s easy to find mats to match your decor. This type of foam flooring is an excellent choice for kids rooms, exercise rooms, basements, family rooms, and trade show booths.  The interlocking foam mats are 2×2′ and interlock together easily with no glue required.  You can lay them directly over any flat, hard surface.

“The installation went great!” Amy told us.  “It only took my husband about 45 minutes.  I went to the Greatmats website and downloaded the installation brochure and the care brochure.  My husband followed the suggestions on the brochure as recommended.  He used cardboard to use under the tiles to protect the floors and a utility knife to make the cuts.  We used borders and went wall to wall.  We had to make cuts even in the center of some tiles to cut where the vents were for our furnace.  I am happy to say we have run the furnace since installation and the tiles have not warped or been damaged by the heat.”

Unlike many foam mats on the market today, these play mats are comprised of a dense EVA foam which makes them tough.  They resist scuffing.  They are also waterproof.  You can also rest assured that they are lead and latex-free.

“We would absolutely buy this product again and are very pleased with it!”  Amy says.  We have already recommended this to friends and family and will continue to.  When we finished installing it, we took pictures and put hem on our Facebook accounts for our friends and family to see.  We got many compliments and questions on where we purchased it and the cost.  We bragged about the wonderful deal and many bright fun colors y’all had to choose from.  The playmats in stores are flimsy and always tend to fall apart.  They also come in too many pieces which is very frustrating because toddlers tend to pull them apart which makes the mat come apart.  I’ve now had this mat for quite some time and never had my toddler rip it up.  It is very easy to clean and is very sturdy!  We are so pleased with y’alls product!”

Thank you for your review, Amy.  We appreciate your business and the time you’ve taken to let us know your thoughts.

Customer Review-1/2" Economy Foam Mats

“Very easy.  The hardest work was cleaning the floor before I put them down.”  -Jacqui D.

Today’s review comes to us from Jacqui who chose our 1/2” Economy Foam Puzzle Mats for her basement floor.  She was looking for a floor where she could practice agility at night or when the weather is bad.

“I was going to buy a 40 x 40” specially for agility.  The cost was more and the shipping was expensive.  There was free shipping on the 2×2 tiles and even though they are 1/4” thinner, they are fine for my home use.”

Economy foam mats are great for home users for a number of different reasons.  As Jacqui said, they are currently offered with free shipping.  Also, the smaller size makes them easier to install and move around.  They are shipped via UPS or FedEx Ground delivery.  Home users often find this is much more convenient than dealing with a large freight delivery.  Larger aerobics tiles are typically for larger rooms with more square footage requirements and commercial applications.

We asked Jacqui if she was happy with the product and she said, “yes, very happy.”

These foam mats are also a great flooring solution for other applications.  Use them as kid’s flooring in schools and pre-schools, for dog agility areas, in basements and garages, indoor sports and multipurpose rooms,  or even parachute staging areas.  They can lay directly on any hard surface, even concrete.

Economy foam mats are easy to clean and can be vacuumed and washed with soap and water.  They require no adhesive for installation but provide a tight feet.  This closed-cell EVA foam is waterproof and has no smell.  They will not absorb moisture or other liquids.

Determining how many tiles you need for your room is easy with our online floor planner.  Simply type in the dimensions of your room and the planner does the rest.  You can even order online.  If you run into trouble, we have a convenient chatline or a friendly customer service rep is a phone call away.
These foam mats come in blue, gray, and black.
If you find this particular foam mat is not perfect for your application or budget, please consider one of our other foam mats.  We offer a complete and comprehensive line of interlocking foam mats to our customers with some starting at $0.99 cents per square foot.  Other foam mat products come with free shipping.  If you have questions please chat with us online, send an email, or call our friendly customer service center to speak with one of our flooring experts about our foam mats.

Customer Review-5/8" Premium Foam Mats


“We are absolutely thrilled with the product.”  -Nil O.

Nil used our premium 5/8” foam mats to cover the entire floor of her 1400 square foot dog training center. 

“We initially thought we’d just do the part where the dog would be, but then we decided our knees were just as important os we covered the whole area,” she says.  “We were looking for a tile that could stand up to dogs and people but didn’t need the 1” agility tiles.  These really fit the bill for us.”

Premium foam mats are an economical, extremely versatile foam flooring product that can be used for a number of different applications.  They are waterproof, lightweight, and easy to store and install.  The best part is they require no glue for installation so if you need to move, you can bring them with you.

Nil says, “the thing I loved best is how well the tiles fit together.  It’s as if you can’t even see how they were installed.” 

Interlocking foam mats fit together almost seamlessly like a giant jigsaw puzzle only easier.  Lay the mats down and piece them together and you’re done.  For wall to wall installations, a simple utility knife can be used to cut them to size when you meet the wall.  (Nil suggested we send along a cutting tool with each shipment.  We’ll have to look into that!)

“The dogs just love it – it gives them just enough traction to run around and I know that if they’re playing rough and fall, they won’t get hurt.  The tile looks absolutely fantastic.  I simply vacuum it and it looks like new.  I do also mop it up…so it’s easy to maintain.  The thing that surprised me most is how resilient it is.  So far, no dog nail rips or imprints.  Even some of our heavy equipment has only left slight impressions.  And the benefit for us humans is that the tile saves our knees and joints!  I’d definitely buy again.”

“My husband and I opened a dog training center and the space we leased had nothing but a concrete floor.  That would NOT have worked as it would have been dangerous for dogs to play there and for people too…the other thing that I LOVE is tha the tiles are so light that I can handle them myself…”

So, Nil, would you recommend Greatmats to your friends?”

“Yes, without hesitation.  In fact, we’re redoing our garage and will be coming back to take a look at your garage floor options.”

Thank you for your business and for your feedback, Nil.  We’re sure your foam mats will keep you happy for years to come.
