Foam matting is ideal for many use cases, including:
- in home workout areas
- indoor playgrounds
- martial arts studios
- basement layouts
- kids play areas
When you want to add eye-catching colors to your flooring, colored puzzle floor mats provide a wide range of choices. Mix and match colors to create a pattern or to have a random collection of colors in the flooring.
If choosing puzzle style matting, you can pick from a few different thicknesses, surface textures, and planned use cases. We have put together a collection of our interlock colored puzzle floor mats that will fit whatever plans you have in place for the room.
What Are the Best Budget Friendly Foam Tile Options?To save money with colored puzzle floor mats, stick with the thinnest options, which include our Foam Mats Economy 1/2 Inch model. At only 0.5 inches of thickness, these mats do not have the cushioning required for athletics or martial arts classes, but they will provide just the right level of comfort for a playroom.
Colors: black, blue, and gray
Each tile measures 2-by-2 feet, so you can cover a big space in very little time. With the thin EVA foam material, cutting through a piece to create a flat edge for a wall-to-wall installation takes very little time. We design these with a DIY installation in mind, further saving money.
What Mats Deliver the Greatest Number of Colors?When you want bright, fun colors above all else in your colored puzzle floor mats, our Colorful Foam Kids and Gym Mats 5/8 Premium is the ideal choice.
Colors: 15 different colors, including red, pink, green, yellow, purple, white, and orange
Each durable EVA foam square has the same puzzled style edging, meaning mixing and matching tiles of different colors is a piece of cake. Or you can create a solid flooring using all of the same color of tile.
At 5/8 inches of thickness, these are ideal for kids playrooms and bedrooms, as well as trade show booths. They’re waterproof and resistant to stains, so even if kids do their worst on top of the flooring, it will remain easy to clean.
What if the Floor Mats Become Damaged?One of the biggest advantages of using interlocking puzzle edge tiling in your flooring is that if one tile becomes damaged, you can simply pop that tile out of place and replace it with a new one. All of the tiles use the same interlocking edge, so the connection will be universal.
For even greater convenience when needing to replace a damaged tile, you can try reversible tiles with separate colors on each side of the tile. Our Reversible Home Sport and Play Mat 3/4 Inch product offers reversible tiles.
Reversible Colors: red/blue, black/gray, and green/brown
These tiles have 0.75 inches of thickness, so they offer extra cushioning versus thinner units. And even though they have a higher cost per square foot initially than those thinner tiles, they may provide a greater value over the long run by having different colors and a finished surface on each side.
Do Colored Puzzle Floor Mats Work for Martial Arts?Greatmats offers several different EVA foam puzzle mats that are ideal for martial arts practices and workouts.
Our Pro Taekwondo Martial Arts Puzzle Mats 20 mm offer a means of outfitting or professional martial arts academy or home dojo at a budget price point.
At 20 mm of thickness (about 0.79 inches), these mats are best for stand-up striking arts and still are able to provide some protection against falls. They’re durable enough to stand up to bare foot workouts and training with shoes.
These work nicely for MMA, aikido, and taekwondo.
Reversible Colors: blue/red, black/red, black/gray, and purple/green
For extra cushioning for disciplines requiring takedowns and throws, such as for BJJ and jiu jitsu, our Home BJJ Puzzle Mats 1.5 Inch product is the ideal selection, offering an ATSM fall rating of up to 4 feet.
These cushioned mats have a tatami texture on the surface, which means athletes won’t suffer skin burns as they fall on, slide or grapple on the mats. The tatami allows for controlled slippage, giving the athletes the traction they need to make quick movements with proper footwork without sticking to or sinking into the mat.
Reversible Colors: red/blue and black/gray
