Customer Review-Premium Foam Mats

Carol M. sent us a nice review and photo.  She selected our 5/8” Premium Foam Matsfor her project and, if this picture is any indication, it turned out fantastic!  (Did we mention these mats are on sale and come with free shipping?)



Here’s what Carol had to say:  “The mats are wonderful and very substantial in thickness.  My little grandaughter’s playhouse could be on the cover of a magazine….. What a color match! The samples you sent were spot on perfect.

The company and its representatives were very informative and nice to work with and I certainly would order from you again.  I will definitely recommend your company and your mats.  Thank you.”

Thank you, Carol.  We appreciate your business!

Customer Review-ABC/123 Mats

Erika G. purchased some of our ABC-123 kids foam play mats for her daughter.  Here’s what she had to say about them:

“We used the tiles as the flooring for our daughter’s playroom.  It was very easy and fun to install them, we took our time making words with the tiles!  We are very satisfied with how it turned out from the ordering process to the setup!  Since the mats are rubber (Note: technically they are EVA foam but they feel pretty similar to rubber) it was an easy clean up as well!  I have already recommended to some of our friends and family!”

Thank you, Erika.  ABC-123 mats are a very popular product for us.  They are bright and colorful so they stimulate kids while also introducing them to basic letters and numerals.  These foam mats are also soft which makes for a better landing pad should the little ones take a tumble.

ABC-123 foam play mats are on sale right now with FREE SHIPPING!

Customer Review-Kid’s Foam Mats

We’re always happy to receive positive feedback.  This is a letter from Randy who purchased our Home Sport and Play Mats a couple weeks ago.  They’re on sale right now and come with free shipping!

“My wife and i have a 2 year old son (Jack) and another little boy due any day now. Realizing that winter is around the corner I decided Jack and I needed a safe place to run around and play indoors that would be out of mom’s way.
Our basement is partially developed. There’s a small “man cave” with a big screen tv and some pinball machines but the rest of the basement is a painted concrete foundation and lots of shelving. 
So i started doing some online research and discovered your company’s “playroom flooring.”
Jackpot! 
The tiles are vibrant, thick, provide great padding and are “customizable” with a few swipes of a box cutter. 
But best of all, they have warmed up our cold basement because of their insulation properties. 
As for installing them, i think i spent an hour experimenting with a few layout options. But about 30 minutes actually installing all of them.
Cutting the tiles to fit around shelf legs and corners was super easy. All i used was an old box cutter and a yard stick. I didn’t run into any challenges other than the fact that i should have ordered about 5 additional tiles. So what I did to cover a few gaps was get creative and connect a bunch of edge pieces together to fill in spaces that could have used a larger tile. 
My wife and I love the tiles. And so does our son because he now has his own playroom next to daddy’s “cave.”
I would definitely buy these tiles from greatmats.com again and I’ve already told my sister about them since she and her husband just had a son and want to develop a play space in their basement. 
Oh and i forgot to mention i love how easy they are to clean.
One of our cats decided to cough up dinner on one of the tiles and it was super easy to wipe up, then pull up the tile and give it a scrubbing outside with the hose. Plus it air dried in no time.
You guys have a great product, user-friendly website, fantastic shipping and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase.”

Thank you, Randy.  We’re happy that you’re happy!

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-Premium 5/8" foam mats

Here’s another great review, this time from Dannette M.  Dannette purchased our 5/8″ premium foam mat which is an excellent, and economical, foam floor option for a variety of applications.  Dannette used these foam mats as an office and workout floor.
“I live in a garden floor apartment in Brooklyn with a finished basement floor,” she says.  “I use the basement as my office and workout area (mostly for P90X and Insanity which can involve a lot of plyometric or jumping exercises.)  I was finding that my yoga mat was very confining when doing these workouts and I have knee problems, so I was looking for something to help reduce the impact on my knees and vie me a little elbow room.”
All of our interlocking foam mats are made with a high density EVA foam material that provides excellent cushion for various aerobic activities.  Easy to piece together, these tiles interlock with one another like a large puzzle.  This provides a stable flooring option that requires no adhesive for installation.  Dannette says, “the installation was extremely easy and the edge pieces fit nicely together.”
Foam mats are soft and warmer than hard surfaces.  They are also waterproof.  Available in 15 bright colors, they add fun and warmth to any room.  These mats come with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty and should last for ten years or more in a normal residential setting.  The 5/8” premium foam mats are our most popular product.

“It was nice to be able to mix and match the edge pieces to create a funky look.  Since the ceramic tiles on which I was installing the mats are pretty slippery, I ended up using carpet tape to keep the mat secure.  Peeling the double-sided tape apart was the hardest part of the whole project.”

These foam mats are so popular because of their versatility.  We find that a large variety of people enjoy these mats.  We sell them to both nurseries as playmates and to military bases for training exercises. 

5/8” Premium foam mats are convenient and easy to handle because they’re so lightweight.  This makes installation and breakdown remarkably easy.  For wall-to-wall installations, the tiles can be easily cut with a sharp utility knife.  When it’s time to relocate, simply stack them up and you’re on your way.

“I would definitely buy the product again,” Dannette told us.  “I love the “grown-up” colors and the ability to mix and match.  I love the thickness and the quality.”


“Shipping was quick.  Customer service has been very professional.”
Thank you, Dannette, for trusting Greatmats to help you find the perfect flooring solution for you.  We appreciate your business.

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.
