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!”
