Wood look portable event and dance floor tile, Waterproof basement modular flooring tile
If seeking raised styles of waterproof modular floorings at home or at work, our economical wood style portable flooring will provide a perfect solution.
Gain convenience and portability without compromising style when you buy from Greatmats. Our vinyl tiles resemble natural hardwood and will give any space an impressive look. These basement dance floor tiles are lightweight and easy to handle.
Portable Tap Dance Floor for Practice
Use these successfully dozens of times, thanks to our unique interlocking tab design. It’s easy to install and disassemble this product in just minutes.
Our tiling is made with a polypropylene plastic base. It connects together with an interlock tab system. The surface is offered in a variety of designs, including beautiful wooden grains, parquet patterns, solid black, or solid white.
Each segment measures 12-1/8 x 12-1/8 inches and 5/8 inch thick. Individually, the pieces weigh a little more than 1 pound apiece. Border Ramps and Corner Ramps are available to complete the design.
By purchasing these, they can be installed atop any hard flat surfaces, including cement, hardwood, or ceramic. However, this tile is not suitable for installations over carpeting of any type. Our vinyl with a grain pattern is designed for residential use only and is not high heel proof.
To install the event floor tiles or event carpet on concrete, we recommend putting down a 2 mm to 6 mm underlay. This rubber underlayment provides shock absorption, increases comfort, and muffles sound.
Rubber laid on top of cement should reduce unwanted stray noises for tap dancers, only hearing the taps. Choices include the 2mm EZ or 3 mm options. If installing this in an area where leaks may occur, though, do not use an underlayer.
Our wood vinyl will easily outperform used event flooring, while still delivering a decent price point.
Indoor and Outdoor Event Floor Covering
If using these as heavy duty outdoor portable flooring pieces, pick them up and place them into storage immediately afterward. Our products even work as event deck flooring, as long as they are not excessively exposed to weather. They work nicely indoors, but the material is not weather protected for continuous use as outdoor flooring solutions.
If looking to create sports practice areas in outside locales, such as a portable basketball floor, multiple options exist in our catalog, such as perforated portable basketball court tiling that allows rainwater to drain through, rather than pooling on the surface.
Portable turf is another option for soccer or baseball event flooring, either outside or inside a facility. The portable indoor turf delivers a true ball roll, while standing up to constant use.
DIY Event Flooring System
Sometimes, event flooring will need to have a durable, yet lightweight, design. For example, portable trade show flooring must be disassembled and reassembled repeatedly after being moved between locations for the next convention on the calendar. Or if there’s a gap in the schedule, individual pieces quickly can be placed in storage until the next time they’re going to be used.
This solution needs to be simple to carry or ship from one locale to another, allowing for a fast setup. It needs a high level of cushioning, so those employees who are standing for the entire day in the convention booth are able to avoid tired legs and ankles. And it needs to hold up against heavy displays installed inside the booths, as well as quite a bit of foot traffic from potential customers.
Portable flooring for conventions and for many other planned usages is a piece of cake to find when you stick with Greatmats, whether that’s dancing, sports, trade shows, and other options. We are ready to ship all types of models at a reasonable cost, including Snaplock dance floor and Fastdeck pricing that matches the requirements our customers have for their budgets.
FAQ Portable Flooring Q&A
How much are portable dance floors?
The final price for event dance floors will depend on the material and thickness measurements selected. With ours, expect to pay between $2 and $6.25 per square foot of coverage. Rolls made of vinyls are the least expensive, yielding a ton of covered space for a small price. For hotels or banquet halls that need a high quality portable wood flooring to host things like anniversary parties and weddings, the cost will approach the higher end of the range.
What type of floorings are best for tap dancing?
As a general rule, these dancers will have the greatest level of success using a hardwood, like maple. This delivers the purest sound from the taps, and the maple dance floor stands up to harsh treatment without worry of indents or splintering. However, it can be tough to fit these expensive styles of floorings into a budget. Instead, consider our portable flooring kit for tapping. It measures 3 by 3, which is ideal for a single person to use and resembles faux hardwoods.
How do you make a surface for a dance floor event?
For easily installable types of portable flooring for events, we suggest interlocking floor tile. These take very little time to lay out and take apart, creating floor covers for events that are ready to go in no time for multiple usage plans. The interlock edges stay together tightly, and they will not pull apart when placed under stress. Some of these models even have the ability to provide turf protection or ground protection as portable flooring for grass.
Can you rent a portable floor for dancing?
Yes. In most cities, special tent flooring rental or event flooring rental near me is relatively easy to find. However, for those who have frequent requirements for creating a temporary flooring for events, an outright purchase generally delivers the best results. By owning the portable flooring, customers always have the correct amount of tiling on hand and the desired color and style available. The rental location could be short handed on the desired product, leaving the customer scrambling for a replacement option at the last minute or settling for an undesirable look in their rented portable floors.
What is the best Greatmats dance floor?
Various selections are available. Start by thinking about the expected use case and types of dances that will be performed. Portable flooring works nicely for temp installs, while marley is a smart choice for more permanency or for multiple styles of dancer practices in a huge room. Add a cushioning layer under the marley if seeking a practice area that protects the lower body joints of the dancers. For questions, contact our customer service team for product recommendations. We even have free shipping on some portable flooring.
I started doing only the pool table side but I like how it was looking and end up doing the whole basement.
Love it! Light and easy to install, and easy to put away. Fits perfectly in the middle of our carpeted living room, where we practice our dancing. We chose a 6x5 configuration since it helps learn to dance in tight spaces.

My 5 year old daughter loves the mat! She dancing and exercises 5 days a week! The quality is great!

The tiles are working out great. They were installed in a basement as a replacement of linoleum tiles.
Very fast shipping! Product was great quality. Very easy to install the floor tiles. Would def recommend for a damn leaky basement.
I like the floor easy to install but I did have a few tiles that were pilling on the edges.

There are some flaws with some of the squares I received, one is chipped and others have a few divots, but not super noticeable unless the light hits it right. For the price, it is on par with what I expected. The website didnt clearly show that you needed male/female or with or without loops for the ramp edging. If the error was on my end and I missed the different options for the edging, I wish a representative would have noticed and reached out. I will still be placing an additional order to use this as exhibit flooring for our tradeshows. I ordered the walnut color and I wish the blanks for what holds the vinyl was darker, the light colored seems definitely lower the look of the flooring.
Working with Beth made this process very easy and smooth. The response back to me was very fast! Thank you so much for your help would recommend to others.
Easy website to navigate. Great pricing! Customer service rep I talked to was easy and knowledgeable. Quick delivery.
The portable dance floor squares arrived timely and looked exactly as described. The were very easy to put together and took me about an hour for 100 squares.
Tiles click together fairly easily. Color is representative
Wood grain is a little shiny...would have been nicer as a matte.
Really annoying that the edges of each tile are not the same as the pattern. So, our ''wood floor'' looks like a wood pattern with orangey-brown grid lines.
If you want your floor to look like wood, then make sure to verify that edge is same as top.

Very good quality but a little pricey
Great product at a great price. I am very pleased with it.
Greatmats was great! I called ahead of time to ask some questions before ordering, they were super helpful. The flooring is great. The only "flaw" is that, because mine is used over uneven carpet, sometimes they come apart a bit while walking on them, but its very minimal. I love that I can now practice dance at home in heels! Thanks Greatmats!
Floor was as described and came in the time promised.
Made the party great
Thank you the floors are great
Website was easy to navigate. Good prices . very glad with my choice for my daughters dance floor
