2. Home Gyms

Home Gym Floor Mats
Next, this exercise room flooring is super popular for home gyms. Made of ethylene vinyl acetate foam, these durable tiles are the odor-free alternative to rubber work out room flooring. Tiles are super durable and will not become damaged under repeated impacts, heavy workout equipment, or free weights. At the same time, this workout room flooring provides enough cushion to maintain support and comfort for all types of exercise.

''We love the Tile Pebble Top 3/4 Inch flooring in our home gym... I can drop 35 lb. dumbbells from waist high and the flooring protects our porcelain tiling just beneath it - no problem. My wife does aerobics on them daily, and after 2 years of the same motions over a certain area, it does show some wear but I'd say that's pretty good durability! With the ability to buy two or three replacement squares for the great price they offer, it is an easy fix to get us back up to new condition. Great product - highly recommended.''

3. Art Studio Floor

Art Studio Flooring
Pebble Top exercise room flooring is super easy to clean and maintain. All cleaning takes is a damp mop with a common household floor cleaner, which is part of the reason tiles work well as art studio flooring. Plus, tiles are anti-fatigue and supportive to joints and limbs standing for long periods of time.

''A great surface to cover a cement floor in an art studio I'm now renting. Easels and furniture move around well on it since it is a harder surface. Easy to assemble. It has reduced most fatigue when I stand and paint, which is what I do. ... It also makes a much more professional appearance to the studio.''

These non-toxic gym flooring tiles create a safe and welcoming flooring environment for kiddos to play on. The exercise room flooring tiles are designed with a non-slip surface for reduced falling risk.

''We are using the mats as a cushioning agent over a concrete floor in our grand-daughters small play room. It has made the room much warmer and quieter. It was easy to trim to fit the area. We placed 12-inch Mickey Mouse puzzle pieces on top and they stay in place very nicely. It was exactly what we were looking for.''

Basement Soft Floor Mats

Pebble Top exercise room flooring is designed with an interlocking puzzle-like connection system that is intuitive and simple to use. The workout room flooring tiles do not require any extra tools or adhesives to assemble.

''They have no odor!! Super easy to assemble!! I spent considerable time looking for a surface to put over ceramic tile floor on a concrete slab in my basement that would protect my floor from dropping free weights. Almost all reviews stated that the smell of rubber was horrible and permeated the entire house. The first thing I did when the tiles arrived (and they arrived within a few days of my order) was stick my nose in the box... no odor whatsoever! Assembly was done without consulting a guide. It took me a minute to realize the there are ends and runners, and that you have to mix and match. All in it took me 20 minutes to assemble an 8' x 8' pad - 16 tiles... AND THEY DON'T STINK!!''
Mike, New City, NY

9. Tree Shaker Mats

Tree Shaker Mats

The cushion and durability of these tiles, along with easy customization made them the perfect solution to protect pecans from falling onto the tree shakers during harvest time.

''My sons are in the pecan business as I am, we purchased new tree shakers and we needed some type of padding to prevent the thin shelled pecans from damage when shook out of the tree. Garrett’s wife was a gymnast in her younger days and suggested looking at mats. This is a picture of their machine. I followed his lead and covered my machine also.''
