Free Online Software Allows You To View Flooring Options in Your Room

Lisa Hobbie // 2019

Everyone loves to shop online, right? Clothing, accessories, products for your home... it’s all available at your fingertips. Have you considered shopping for flooring, online, though? Perhaps, you like to check products out and view pricing and color options from various online vendors, but you hesitate to make the purchase, as you don’t really know how the products you’re interested in will look in your space. Well, if that has been holding you back in the past, it doesn’t have to anymore! With the Greatmats’ free virtual room visualizer, you can view a product in the actual room you are updating! You simply upload a photo from your device using the software on Greatmats.com, and you can tour your room with the selected flooring option in it!

The room visualizer tool is so easy to use, and it can be found on select product pages underneath the photos of the products. Let’s use floor tile, for example. Imagine you want to resurface your home kitchen with raised floor tile. You’d visit that product page on Greatmats.com and scroll down to find the blue button that reads, “See My Room View with this Product.” After clicking on that option, a new window will open with the option in the top left corner to “Use Photo of My Room”. Select that option and upload a picture of your kitchen. Once your photo uploads, you will see the original flooring was replaced with the raised floor tile product you’re viewing. Towards the bottom right side of the screen, you will see the option to “change color” or “rotate tile”. These will allow you to experiment with various colors and patterns to achieve the exact look you’re going for. The room visualizer really allows for you to see how the tile you’re considering will look in reality! If you think you may like a product but want to swap it out just to be sure, you can simply choose the option to “Change Product” under the center of the photo. This will allow you to select a different flooring option the Greatmats offers. Take your time and play around with the room visualizer until you get it just how you want it to look. Once you are happy with your design, you may choose to “view details” from the top right corner of the screen, and you will be taken back to the product page where you may add the specific product into your shopping cart. Or, you may choose to “Save” your work, or, “Share” it via social media, email, or, by capturing the link to your room visualizer image.




The virtual room designer also works great to visualize a dance floor. Perhaps you’re ready to upgrade your studio to a Rosco Adagio Marley floor, but you want to see how it will look in your space before making the investment. Well, simply view the product page, scroll down to “See My Room View with this Product”. You will then upload a picture of your studio and view it with the desired flooring! You will have the option to then save your work or share it! Keep in mind, in the case of rolled flooring that the rolls are necessarily viewed to scale and may appear as tiles. These should be used mainly for color purposes.

Perhaps, you have a gym or training facility, and you are considering the addition of grappling MMA mats to your existing base floor. The room visualizer works with this scenario, as well. Simply follow the same steps described above and view the mats in your training space – with the ability to rotate the flooring, switch out colors, return to the product page, save it for later, or share with your friends! For interlocking puzzle mats, you again may not see the puzzle edges of the tile, but it will help you see how the color and texture of the mats will work in your space.

The room visualizer tool on Greatmats.com is truly a design lifesaver.

You can literally redesign each room of your home or business by picking out perfect flooring options to fit your unique space. Whether tile, roll, Marley floor, MMA mats or other flooring options are what you’re considering, the virtual room designer allows you to feel confident in the color and product choice you decide on, because you have actually seen what it will look like – before you even purchase it. To ensure you get the best visual of your room, simply take several photos of the room, and complete the upload process a few times. This way, you will be able to view the flooring from different angles. If you’re having trouble deciding on a color or pattern, complete the room visualizer process a few times with the same picture, and save them to view them side by side!
