Basement flooring tiles and mats can quickly transform your basement into a livable space. Convert your basement into an exercise room, a family room, or a kids' play space. Because many of these basement products are designed to withstand wet conditions, they're also a good option for businesses and homes in flood zones. Basement flooring can be quickly disassembled and reinstalled without being damaged, so if leaks do occur, it's no big deal.
Use basement flooring to:
- Create a comfortable area for your family to relax, watch movies, or play games
- Transform your basement floor into a home gym for convenient workouts
- Create a kids' playroom
- Increase the livable space in your home by adding on a new bedroom or apartment in your basement
- Provide insulation from the cold of a concrete basement floor for a more enjoyable space
- Make the most of an unused space by creating a welcoming room
- Instantly make your basement more attractive and versatile, at an affordable cost
Greatmats' basement flooring options are designed to work with your existing basement conditions. There's no worrying about laying underlayment or ensuring that leaks and moisture buildup won't occur. Many of our basement flooring tiles can even be used in conjunction with existing in-floor heating systems. We have many moisture-resistant tiles, and most of our tiles are designed to be used directly over concrete or other hard, flat surfaces. This amounts to a simple, affordable installation that you can handle yourself.
And if you have a dirt basement floor, we can help with that as well. Please give one of our flooring experts a call to explore the many options available.
Basement Flooring: Adding Value
Cold, unwelcoming, unused basements mean that you're missing out on valuable living space. Investing in quality basement flooring can instantly increase the versatility of your basement. But there's another reason why you should consider new flooring for your basement: It can increase the value of your home.
Unused basement space is space that's just sitting, but it's also space that you're paying for. A new living space in your home will increase its value, as well as your enjoyment of the home. Have you been yearning for a home gym, an office, a playroom, or even another family space? Converting your basement can give you that space, and it all starts with a quality flooring.
If you should choose to sell your house, having that livable space and flooring already in place will help buyers to envision all the possibilities of your basement. Your home will be more appealing and versatile, and having a beautiful basement may help to get your house sold.
Benefits of Flooring for Basements

All of Greatmats' basement flooring options here have been carefully chosen for quality and performance. No matter what product you choose, we are confident you will be thrilled with your new basement flooring.
We are proud to offer more than 400 flooring options specifically designed with features, such as moisture resistance and insulation against cold, that are so important in basement settings. Your cold, dingy, dark basement will be a thing of the past when you invest in Greatmats basement floor tiles.
Types of Flooring for Basements
As you shop for basement flooring, you will need to choose between rolls, tiles, and mats. Basement flooring is also made of a wide variety of materials, including plastic, rubber, foam, carpet, vinyl, and cork, each of which are designed to handle the specific challenges of basement environments. You will find a number of water resistant or waterproof products, and many tiles have a raised flooring feature to allow air to circulate beneath the floors. Nearly all of our basement flooring features a modular design that can be removed and reinstalled easily, which is especially useful in the case of a moisture problem or flood.
How to determine what type of basement flooring is best.
- How will the space be used? Will the space be a home gym, a kids' play area, or a family room?
- Are there moisture concerns in your basement? Is there the potential for flooding?
- How much space do you need the flooring to cover? Are you planning a wall-to-wall or island installation?
- Is it likely that you will need to remove the floor or access the subfloor in the future?
- Are you looking for a softer surface to help absorb shock?
- Do you want a colorful floor, or a floor with a more natural appearance?
- Will you be installing the flooring yourself?
Understanding your needs will help you choose the right flooring that best fits your plans for your basement. Let's take a look at some of our most popular types of basement floors.
Rubber Basement Flooring
Rubber basement flooring is one of the most popular flooring solutions, and for good reason. Rubber is versatile and highly durable. It is often made from recycled materials, so you can feel good about choosing to purchase rubber flooring. If you're planning to use your basement as a multi-purpose space, rubber may be a sound investment.
Rubber is available in flooring tiles, rolls, and mats. Each option offers various benefits when used in a basement setting.
Rubber Floor Tiles:
- The most popular option, rubber tiles are easy to transport and install.
- Rubber tiles can be a practical DIY project for a single person
- Our 2x2 foot tiles can be carried down narrow basement staircases for easy home installation
- Interlocking rubber tiles require no adhesive
- Generally rubber rolls are the most economical rubber flooring option
- Rolls quickly cover large areas with virtually no seams
- Rolls are heavy, so you will likely need at least two people for installation
- Mats can be used to protect subfloors from heavy impact, such as from dropped weights
- Highly durable, mats are popular choices for use with home gyms in basement spaces
If you're looking for durability and strength, you won't beat rubber flooring.
Basement Gym Flooring
When transforming your basement into a gym, you'll have a number of suitable flooring options to choose from. Be sure to weigh the following qualities when choosing a gym basement flooring:
- Is the product suitable for planned activities, such as weight lifting, floor work, or aerobics?
- How forgiving is the surface, if you'll be doing activities like sit-ups or push-ups?
- Does the flooring offer good sound insulation properties?
Rubber Gym Flooring
Rubber is the primary choice for most residential gym floors, thanks to its durability and affordability. Because rubber is dense and strong, it can be used underneath exercise equipment, and even in weight rooms. Rubber is non-absorbent, so cleanup is easy.
Many homeowners prefer rubber because of its ability to protect your basement floor from damage. Rubber can help to protect your floor from wear and tear, as well as from dropped weights.
Generally speaking, the thicker the rubber, the greater the floor protection it can provide. Our flooring is available in thicknesses ranging from 1/4 inch all the way up to 1 inch. Thicker flooring absorbs more impact and is also more durable than thinner flooring options.
For home gyms that will see heavy activity, like weight lifting, rubber flooring can be a great investment. Our 100-percent recycled rubber flooring options are harder, firmer and heavier than similar flooring made from foam, meaning you'll get more use and greater protection out of rubber flooring. Rubber is a more durable option, suitable for the serious gym-goer.
Concerned about moisture in your basement? Our re-vulcanized rubber products are completely waterproof. Non-vulcanized rubber is partially non-absorbent, though it is possible for water to permeate through the rubber if the floors are soaked or power washed.
Rubber flooring with a flat underside may trap existing moisture underneath the floor. However, rubber can be easily pulled up if condensation or seepage occurs. Once the floor is dry, just replace the flooring. We also offer basement flooring with raised bases to prevent moisture from becoming trapped.
You may want to consider rubber gym flooring if:
- You're looking for an economical flooring option
- You need a flooring that provides shock absorption, such as for use in a weight room
- You need to protect your underlying basement flooring from wear and tear
We offer rubber flooring for basements in tile, mat and rolled rubber designs.
- Rubber tiles are available in both straight edge and interlocking designs. They're conveniently sized for easy installation, and interlocking tiles lock tightly so you don't have to worry about the edges working their way up.
- Rubber mats are heavy enough to be dry-laid. They're ideal for adding protection to specific areas, such as areas beneath gym equipment, and are sized to be more manageable than rolled rubber.
- Rolled rubber always comes with straight edges. It's the most economical option, but you will also need multiple people to help with the installation.
Interlocking Rubber Tiles
Interlocking rubber tiles are frequently used for home gyms. Because the tiles interlock tightly, they are easy to install and require no adhesive. You can easily pull up the tiles and move them in the future, whether you need to clean beneath them or dry out your subfloor. When compared to rolled rubber, tiles reduce the amount of wasted material in wall-to-wall installations. This means you'll get the most bang for your buck.
Interlocking tiles feature an easy installation. They fit together like puzzle pieces, and connect tightly, so they won't pull apart during use. Some ties feature interlocking designs, so you can install them facing any directions for increased simplification. Other tiles will include directional arrows that help to guide you in their installation.
Greatmats offers rubber basement floor tiles in full color, with all black and black with colored flecks options available. This means that you can choose the exact appearance that you want for your home gym.
You may want to consider rubber interlocking flooring tiles if:
- You're doing a wall-to-wall installation in a smaller area
- You'll be handling your basement gym floor's installation on your own
- You may want to remove or move your gym flooring in the future
Rolled Rubber Flooring
Interlocking tiles tend to be the easiest basement flooring option to install, rolled rubber is generally a more economical option. This is particularly true if you need to cover a large area, such as your entire basement floor. You can purchase rolled rubber in lengths of 10 feet or more. Rolled rubber is popular for use in commercial gyms, but it's also a great choice for your home basement. It can be used to cover larger areas with fewer seams, but rubber rolls are heavy to move.
We recommend a tape down installation for rolled rubber. If you desire a permanent installation, particularly in larger areas, adhesive is also available.
Rolled rubber ships via freight delivery, except for our 4x10 feet x 1/4 inch thick rolls.
Foam Basement Gym Flooring
If you're looking for a soft and comfortable basement flooring, foam may be the perfect product for you. Foam offers greater cushion than rubber flooring, and it also helps to protect your bones and joints during workouts. Interlocking foam basement tiles are incredibly easy to install; just lock them together like puzzle pieces and you're done.
We also offer a variety of foam rolls, but these are designed to provide extra cushion underneath another type of flooring. These foam rolls should not be used alone, and must be covered by another flooring in order to protect them.
If you plan on doing aerobics or floor exercises in your basement gym, then foam is an excellent choice. Keep in mind that foam does intend if something heavy is placed on it, and it can be punctured by sharp objects. While most indents will disappear, foam can become permanently indented if a heavy object, like gym equipment, is placed on it for an extended period of time.
Foam basement flooring is ideal when:
- You're looking for a softer, more forgiving flooring option
- You'll be focusing on activities like aerobics or floor work
- You don't have any heavy gym equipment that will need to sit on the floor
- You aren't going to be lifting heavy weights
- You're looking for a floor which is simple and easy to install
Plastic Basement Gym Flooring
For a flooring that's more forgiving than rubber but a little firmer than foam, our plastic basement gym flooring is a great middle ground. Snap together PVC plastic gym floor tiles, such as StayLock Bump Top or StayLock Orange Peel tiles, are still durable yet provide more cushion than rubber. These tiles have a raised base, so moisture and air can freely circulate beneath the floor. This is particularly advantageous for basements where leaks are possible.
The PVC StayLock Tiles are both flexible and lightweight, making them perfect for gym basements. They're also eco-friendly; the black tiles are made from recycled PVC, and can be recycled again at the end of their life. With a 5-year warranty, you can buy PVC StayLock Tiles with confidence (most foam tiles are guaranteed for one year).
Consider PVC flooring tiles if:
- You need something more durable than foam but with more cushion than rubber
- Your basement floors may be subjected to leaks or moisture buildup
Kids Playroom Basement Flooring
Both foam and PVC flooring are practical options for converting your basement floors into soft, forgiving play areas for children.
Foam, which is soft and shock absorbing, is often used to create soft rooms for children with special conditions, such as epilepsy. Now, our foam tiles bring those same properties to your own basement to keep your kids safe.
Foam flooring can help prevent or reduce the severity of injuries due to slips, trips, falls or even seizures. Some of the foam tiles even feature ASTM fall height ratings. Foam flooring is available in a variety of thicknesses, and the tiles are both warm and comfortable to stand on. Closed cell foams will not absorb water, so spills are a cinch to clean up.
Interlocking foam tiles are available in numerous colors, so you can quickly brighten up your basement or create a fun pattern that kids are sure to love.
Some of our PVC tiles also offer excellent cushioning properties and limited fall height protection. Generally speaking, PVC tiles are usually more durable when it comes to sharp or heavy objects. If you're interested in plastic flooring for a play area, our line of 1x1 foot StayLock Tiles is a good place to start. These tiles are both waterproof and flexible, and you can choose from a variety of different surface options.
When choosing the right flooring for a basement play area, look for a flooring that:
- Offers a soft, safe play surface
- Provides fall height protection
- Is easy to install
Family Area Basement Flooring
If you want to create a welcoming, comfortable family area in your basement, then carpeting tiles can create a soft, warm, enjoyable surface. Our modular snap-together carpet tiles and our interlocking carpet top foam-backed floor tiles both offer a comfortable carpeted surface, yet they are incredibly easy to install.
For basements with moisture issues, a non-absorbent product that resists moisture is a must-have. Our snap-together carpet tiles allow you to still have that carpeting finish, even with moisture issues. These tiles feature a raised base, so the carpeting is held up, off of the damp floor. Air and water can flow beneath the tiles, which helps to dry the floor and prevent mold and mildew. Because raised floor tiles have this unique base system, there's no need to lift the floor up to allow the base to dry in most situations.
If your basement has less persistent moisture problems, our puzzle style interlocking carpet tiles with foam backing may be the right choice for you. The foam provides increased comfort and instant cushion, and these tiles are available at a lower price tag than the snap-together tiles. If these puzzle style tiles become wet, it is advised that they be removed and allowed to dry. Installing these tiles again is easy, though, since they connect like puzzle pieces and require no adhesive.
Our Royal Interlocking Carpet Tiles are not water-absorbent and create a soft and warm flooring for basements. The thick foam base lends itself to comfort and fatigue prevention. If these tiles get wet, they are easy to remove, dry, and reinstall. They look great, and are available in a number of designer colors.
We also offer some non-carpet flooring solutions for basement family areas. Our Max Tile is a non-carpeted raised flooring tile that is highly durable. These tiles snap together in seconds, creating a permanent or temporary floor. They can also be fit for wall-to-wall installations. Choose from several popular designs, including wood grain and stone looks to truly give your basement an eye-catching appearance. Max Tile is a higher-end flooring solution that is durable enough to withstand furniture use. It will last for years, even in areas that receive heavy traffic.
If you're looking for a more natural look, then our luxury vinyl tiles and other laminates may be just what you're looking for. They are available in a variety of beautiful designs, including wood grain, stone, and cork.
When choosing the right flooring for your basement family area, consider the following factors:
- Does your basement have moisture issues?
- Are you looking for a carpeted or non-carpeted surface?
- Will you be performing a wall-to-wall installation?
- How much traffic will the area receive?
Basement Den or Workshop Flooring
Many homeowners opt to create a heated workshop or den in their basement. We recommend a raised PVC flooring option for these conversions. PVC flooring is highly durable. It provides excellent fatigue relief, but is also easy to clean.
Our StayLock modular basement flooring tiles are a popular option. They are waterproof, resistant to most acids and oils, and are available in three different surfaces: bump top, orange peel and perforated. StayLock tiles are incredibly durable, with an expected life span of 20 years and a 5-year warranty.
Basement Flooring Installation
In most cases, installing your basement flooring is an easy DIY project. Interlocking and snap together tiles are particularly easy and fast to install.
If you want to create an island installation within the room, then you may want to use a product that includes border tiles or strips to create a clean finished edge. Many of our flooring options, such as Max Tile or StayLock Tiles, include ramped or straight edge border pieces.
For a wall-to-wall installation, begin installing your tiles in one corner of your room that shares the two longer walls. Otherwise, you may start in the center of the room and work your way out, cutting the tiles to fit when you reach the walls.
