How to install 2x2 foot interlocking foam tiles

2x2 foot interlocking foam floor tiles are an easy form of flooring to install. You'll need a tape measure, sharp utility knife and a straight edge.

Begining with a clean floor, start laying full tiles in a corner, leaving a 1/4 inch gap between the foam flooring and walls for tile expansion. Push the puzzle tiles together, working out evenly from the corner until full tiles will no longer fit.

Measure the distance remaining between the interlocking foam floor and remaining walls. Cut tiles for the remaining space using a sharp utility knife to fit accordingly, using a straight edge guide. Cut the majority of the way through the tiles on one side. Then fold the mat at the slice to expose the core.

Finish cutting from the other side, keeping the tile folded and following the crease from the inside. Then lay the cut tiles to fit flush with the walls - minus your 1/4 inch gap.

Border strips will also create a finished edge.
