Add color and comfort to any room with the Foam Floor Mats 5/8 Premium tiles. These interlocking tiles are ideal for kids play rooms, trade show booths, and nearly any indoor space that needs a soft surface for work or play. The premium foam mats are available in 15 colors and feature a textured surface on one side and a smooth surface on the other. This gives you freedom to decide which type of surface works best for your particular application when installing kids foam mats.

Foam Mats for Kids

We’ve included a thatch surface as the texture on these kids floor mats, ensuring they’ll stand up to repeated use without scuffing, while giving athletes a sure footing. Our premium interlocking foam mats for kids provide shock absorption too, as they measure 5/8 inches in thickness, just the right size for cushioning properties. At 2-by-2 feet in size, each kids foam mat weighs approximately 1 pound, which simplifies the installation process. One person can lift and position these foam floor mats with little effort.

Kids Foam Mats Colors

Select from 15 different color options in our kids floor mats. We provide bright colors that kids will love, like red, orange, yellow, bright green, pink, and purple. If neutral colors are more appropriate in a particular large foam play mats for kids and toddlers installation, we also offer white, tan, and gray. Hundreds of pattern combinations are possible.

Installation is Simple Foam Floor Mats for Kids

Our customers appreciate the ease of installation with our interlocking foam mats. No special adhesives are required to create a sturdy foam mat flooring option. Just start in one corner of the room and add mats evenly around it, working toward the opposite corner. To pop the jigsaw edges into place, most people step on the seams of the kids floor mat pieces. To simplify installation, use border strips to finish the edges of the floor mats for kids. Additionally, these foam floor mats may be cut with a sharp utility knife and a straight edge to deliver a finished look.

We ship each kids foam mat tile with two border strips. These strips contain puzzle edges, which means they fit tightly with the large mat pieces for a perfect installation. These border pieces work well for creating an island design, where the foam floor puzzle mat pieces are assembled in the middle of the room, rather than tightly against any walls. With the border pieces, the island flooring will have a flat, finished edge with no cutting of tiles required.

Create the Perfect Floor Design

Each kids floor mat consists of ethylene-vinyl acetate foam, also called EVA. This type of material is tough enough to stand up to almost any use case, transforming basements, attics, or other rooms into play areas or workout spaces. Because each floor foam mat tile has the same interlocking edge (regardless of the tile’s color), it’s easy to connect tiles of varying colors to create any desired pattern.

We offer tools and resources to aid in designing the layout of these premium foam mats for kids, such as our interactive online room designer. Use this tool to figure out exactly how many tiles are required to create any desired color pattern and coverage area.

Creating a Safe, Enjoyable Area for Kids

Transform a child’s bedroom, a basement, or any other room into a fun, colorful, and exciting space with our 5/8-inch kids foam mat. Latex-free, safe EVA foam is a smart choice for these use cases, as it provides cushioning properties, helping children avoid bumps and bruises from falls. Additionally, this jumbo foam play mat product delivers thermal insulation, noise suppression, and waterproof properties.

Because our foam mats for kids are so easy to install, parents and children alike can work together to figure out a fun layout for the room. Curious kids will have a great time putting together the puzzle pieces. Combine the fun colors in these stylish foam play mat pieces in any configuration to develop an amazing space where children can let their creativity show.

Some of our customers prefer a more subdued color design when putting together the kids foam mats for playrooms, and we have colors to meet those needs too. Among the 15 colors in our foam mats for kids are options that will match a child’s bedroom décor or that will yield a calming environment for studying and reading. Creating the perfect atmosphere in a room is easy with our 5/8-inch foam mat pieces.

The Right Foam Mat for Exercise and Workout Spaces

Another popular installation choice for these premium kids foam mat pieces is in exercise rooms or workout rooms. The cushioning in the premium tiles is perfect for helping athletes stay safe and healthy. We always recommend installing the interlocking mats over a flat subfloor to eliminate the possibility of raised edges causing a tripping hazard.

Before performing the installation, think about the types of exercise that will be involved. Understand that heavy exercise machines or furniture in the room may cause the EVA foam to indent slightly. This does not cause a loss of integrity in the mat. However, for aesthetic purposes, consider using an extra mat to absorb the weight of the exercise equipment and to prevent indentations in the floor.

Although these interlocking foam floor mats work nicely in exercise rooms, some customers choose to upgrade to our Home Sport and Play mat, which increases the level of cushioning available. These foam floor puzzle mat pieces measure 7/8 inches in thickness. Our Home Sport and Play mats have different colors on each side of the tile, and we offer them in three color combinations. These reversible large floor foam mats fit together perfectly, regardless of which side is facing upward. Our lightweight workout floor mats may be cut with a sharp utility knife to create a finished edge.

Install the Right Kids Foam Mats for the Basement

Don’t let the hard, cold floor in a basement hinder the use of this space. Foam mats for kids flooring for basements delivers color, life, and warmth to this often dull and cold area of the home. By using the interlocking foam tiles over the basement floor, the space becomes more inviting for family time. The mats are cushioned, bringing safety for play time too.

We’ve used a closed cell EVA foam in creating the kids foam play mats. This material ensures a waterproof flooring, which is important when installed in a basement, which sometimes has dampness. Closed cell foam mats prevent the growth of mold or bacteria, while creating a vapor barrier against moisture seeping through concrete flooring.

Additionally, our large foam mats for kids provide a good value. With 2x2-foot pieces, minimal material is wasted during installation versus rolls of flooring or carpet.

Interlocking Foam Mats for Trade Shows and Events

Standing on the interlocking mats foam material delivers comfort all day long, making it a smart floor for trade show booths.

To create a 10x10-foot floor for a trade show booth, only 25 foam floor mats are required. For 10x20 feet of coverage area, 50 mats will deliver the desired performance. And in a 20x20-foot trade show booth, only 100 mats are needed to create the desired coverage area.

Installation and transportation of these lightweight foam tiles is easy. We recommend storing and transporting the mats in a cargo-style carrying case consisting of hard plastic. We offer multiple sizes of these cases, which protect the tiles and simplify carrying dozens of them at a time. Pick from cases in sizes of 2x4 and 4x4 feet. We also offer cases to haul up to 200 mats, delivering enough coverage space for a 20x40-foot trade show booth.

Soft, Reliable, and Long-Lasting

Each premium kids foam mat includes a 1-year warranty against product defects. Under normal applications in the home and when cared for properly over time, we expect our floor mats for kids will last 10 years or more. Understand that high heels and other sharp objects may puncture the surface of the tiles. But indentions that don’t puncture the tiles often will reverse over time. Finally, avoid installing the foam floor mats over carpeting, as they may shift and slide.

At Greatmats, we stock thousands of square feet of kids foam mats and other flooring products, ensuring quick shipping and delivery, no matter how large the residential or commercial project.

Simple Cleaning and Maintenance for These Kids Foam Mats

No special equipment is required to clean these foam mat tiles. A vacuum cleaner works nicely for daily maintenance. Just test the vacuum on a small area to ensure it will not scuff the surface of the tiles. For stubborn stains or spots, use a damp mop, basic household cleaners, and warm water.

The minimal amount of time required to clean and maintain our kids foam mat tiles is another reason why our customers love using them at home or in a commercial setting.

Please Note:
Understand that colors and shades may vary a bit from tile to tile within a single order. Such variations commonly occur with EVA kids foam mats. Checkerboard pattern installations can make this variation less noticeable.


Product can be damp mopped with common household floor cleaners, avoid bleach. Test your vacuum before use.

Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

Are play room mats PVC and phthalate free? Does the foam contain formaldehyde? Thank you, Julie
The manufacturer of our EVA foam tiles has provided us a test that states that one sample of an EVA foam tile passed a test that states the sample was free of formamide. We don't then state that all of our EVA foam tiles are formamide free, and I know that other supplies will promote this. The reason is that all the EVA foam tiles on the market are pretty much the same material. Formamide free EVA tiles can not exist, however the formamide will dissipate over time and one can get a passing test result after a few months of manufacturing. We source from the largest manufacturer of EVA foam tiles in world and I personally visit the factory each year and have much knowledge about the manufacturing process. I'll not state on my site what I know is not true. EVA foam tiles do not contain PVC material and thus no phthalates. Some blogs talk about EVA replacing PVC in foam tiles. This is not true; they are totally different materials. PVC is a plastic. EVA foam comes from the flip flop industry. Thank you David Butler President
Is this product safe for babies?
This is product will protect against an hard surface. The product is not tested for other safety features.
I am looking for a product to install at a Day Care Center. The product should be heavy duty and come in different bright colors. Suggestions?
We have various interlocking foam tiles which are very popular for daycare and childcare locations, however the foam tiles are not really designed for areas with tables and chairs. We have our Staylock line of flooring tiles which provide a 20 inch ASTM fall height rating and can be used with tables and chairs and are easy to clean and are very durable for a long period of time.
Can your Foam Floor Mats 5/8 Premium be installed outside?
All foam tiles will expand and potentially deform when exposed to heat and direct sunlight, so we can not warranty the foam tiles outdoors. The tiles are waterproof and will not absorb moisture. I believe some of our customer have used these tiles outdoors under portable swimming pools.
Will bed frames ruin the floor mat? Do we need to put anything under desk legs or bed frame legs to protect the floor?
Any small surface area that carries a load will intent the foam tiles. This can leave an almost permanent indentation, however this will not damage the foam tile per say. You can use coasters under such feet or legs to disperse the weight of the furniture.
Will these be able to lock with the 1/2 inch economy ones? If yes, will we notice a huge difference in thickness or will it blend in with the other 1/2 inch ones that are already in our basement?
The interlocking design of the tiles are the same, so the tiles should interlock together, the thickness difference is 3 mm.
Is this product safe to use on top of wooden floors? Will it stain or affect the finish on the wooden floors? Someone mentioned that there is a slippery coating on the tile as it comes out of the box.
The slippery coating mentioned may be on the top surface from the mold release agent, which can be cleaned off. The foam will act like a vapor barrier and may discolor polyurethane on wood floors, however our experience is that this discoloring is temporary. You might consider a sheet of construction craft paper between the tiles and the wood floor.
If you are not installing this wall to wall but only an area rug application, would they be slippery on a vinyl tile like standard area rug?
Most likely not, the bottom of the foam tiles has a bit of a grip on hardwood and tile, so it can depend on the surface and the activity.
How many are included in the package ?
We sell by the tile, so however many you order.
is this product safe to use on top of carpet? what would you recommend to place under foami
The foam tiles will not hurt the carpet. The tiles may slip around depending on the size of the installation and the activities performed on top of the tiles. Its best to install these foam tiles on a hard flat surface in order for the tiles to have a good connection to the surface.
Can this product be installed on top of carpeted room?
The foam tile are best installed over a hard flat surface in order to make good contact with the floor so they do not slip around.
Can I put adagio dance floor roll on top of these mats, or are they too soft/
These foam tiles are too soft for this, we recommend our Sport Designer Foam tiles for use as an underlayment under the Adagio marley vinyl material. The Sport Designer Foam is more firm.
Could these be used as an underlayment for a click-together hardwood flooring to add cushion?
Not sure about this question, I would think yes, but that would make a very thick underlayment.
These will go in basement gym. The cement floor has radiant heat however we never set the thermostat greater than 72 degrees most times it's just at 68th I'm wondering if this would be a problem regarding chemicals gases? If this product is not appropriate would PVC be a better option or is there something else you could recommend we do some P90X there thank you
These EVA/PE foam tiles are fine over in floor heat, no issues. For P90X you might consider the 7/8 inch thickness Home Sport and Play mats.
Can this tile be used for a dog room? Will it get scratched, and if there are any messes will it soak through?
The foam tiles can be scratched with dog claws and will not absorb moisture.
I have a home workshop (woodworking) on a concrete floor. This looks like the perfect material to place around my equipment to walk/stand on. The hard concrete is destroying my knees. Am I right?? Seem like a good application? Thanks
Yes this product is a good anti fatigue option for home workshops.
With two golden retrievers, we deal with a lot of dog hair. Are the mats easily vacuumed or does the dog hair stick to the foam mats?
These tiles have a finished surface texture which makes them easy to vacuum and a dogs claws can puncture this foam material.
Can the 15 piece minimum be a mix of different colors or does all 15 have to be of one color?
You can mix and match colors as needed to come to 15 total.
Are the edge pieces squared or beveled? Do you sell beveled edge pieces or have mats that come with beveled edge pieces?
In the foam tiles, we only have the square edges.
Can you paint any designs on these mats
We are not familiar with painting this type of foam tile.

Chilliwack, BC

Customer Rating:

I love these mats. We purchased them for our basement for our kids to play on a soft surface, and this purchase was for the basement in our rental. They are perfect for a basement because if you happen to get a little water you can pull up the tiles very easily and dry the area underneath, then put the tiles back once it has dried out completely. The tiles themselves do not absorb water so they won't grow mold, they really are perfect. We have kids and did not want a product that smelled like plastic or chemicals, and these do not smell at all. They are very durable, we have two dogs, and while we don't let the dogs in the basement, they have gotten down there a few times and walked on the tiles. We were concerned they might scratch the surface or puncture them with their nails, but that didn't happen. I'm sure over time they will get marred and punctures will happen, but in the three years we've had them in our basement they still look new.
