Foam Flooring Q&A
What is the softest flooring?
A soft foam floor instantly creates a cushioned environment in any room. Lay it over hard floors, resulting in a playroom that's safer for kids. It also works as a toddler play mat, softening the blow if the child falls while learning to walk. Keeping these foam play mats clean and safe is a simple process, too.
What’s the best soft flooring option for a kids’ bedroom?
Soft flooring for a kids’ bedroom should be thick enough to protect against falls. It should have a slip-resistant surface to help kids avoid falling when running. An easy-to-install design is nice for parents who want to do a DIY flooring job. Foam floors that require minimal maintenance are helpful as well.
Is it easy to install foam flooring tiles?
Many interlocking foam tiles are very easy to install. Some designs have puzzle-style edges that just pop together. They often are easy to cut with a utility knife and straightedge, so you can fit them tight to a wall. Some models ship with border pieces that connect to the main tile’s puzzle edge, simplifying the process of creating a straight edge.
Where would you use foam flooring rolls?
Making use of a foam flooring roll is ideal as a subfloor underneath a harder type of floor, providing cushioning. The roll also helps to cut down on noise generation. Some of the areas to use this type of subfloor include a professional gymnasium, workout space at home, martial arts studio, cheer studio, or gymnastics studio.
What thicknesses are foam flooring available in?
Different thicknesses of foam floors provide varying levels of cushioning and shock absorption. Rolls typically range from 1.25 to 2 inches of thickness. Tiles can range from 0.375 to 1.5 inches in thickness. Foam floor mats have the most versatility in terms of thickness, ranging from 1 to 12 inches.
