Play Mats: Puzzle, Foam and School Flooring
Floor mats for kids make a great choice for kids' playrooms and bedrooms, since they're non-absorbent and lightweight. Greatmats offers a wide variety of kids floor mats in a variety of sizes and colors.
How To Clean Kids Foam Play Mats (Puzzle Mats)
- Regularly vacuum the mats with a non-beater-brush vacuum
- Mop the mats as necessary for a deeper cleaning, using hot water and basic household soap
- Spot clean mats using a scrubby and sponge
- For large commercial areas, regularly use a walk behind auto cleaning machine
- When cleaning mats that have been removed, allow the mats to completely dry before re-installing them
How To Cut Kids Floor Mats (Puzzle Mats)
- Using a pen, draw a line where the cut should be made
- Using a straight edge guide, cut shallow scores with a sharp utility knife until the cut travels mostly through the foam play mat
- Expose the core by folding the mat at the cut
- Finish cutting the from the opposite side, following the inside crease of the folded mat
How To Choose Flooring Where Kids Won't Get Hurt
There's no way to 100% ensure that kids won't get hurt, but choosing the right kids floor mats can go a long way in keeping them safer. When you choose floor mats for kids, consider the following factors.
- Look for an ASTM Fall Height Rating. Mats which have an ASTM fall height rating have undergone testing to determine the level of protection they offer against head injuries. Foam play mats or PVC plastic tiles are the most common flooring types used for indoor play areas, because of their fall height ratings.
- Check to see if the foam play mats have a slip resistant surface. Foam mats may be soft and cushiony, but if they are slippery then they may actually increase the frequency of falls and slips.
- Make sure the kids floor mats you choose can be installed over your existing flooring. Most foam mats are excellent for installation over concrete or hardwood, but they can slide or shift when they're installed over carpeting. If you're working with a carpeted room, carpet-safe raised PVC floor tiles may be a safer option.
- Consider environmental conditions. If you will be installing mats in a damp basement, make sure that the mats are waterproof. Even better, look for mats designed to allow for drainage and airflow, so you don't have to worry about pulling up the mats if they get wet. If you're installing mats in a hot and humid area, choose a product that has minimal expansion when humidity fluctuates. You may also need to allow expansion room to prevent buckling floors as conditions change.
If you're looking for a temporary play area, consider our wide selection of folding mats, roll out mats, and play mats. These mats can transform any room into a play-safe area, even if you don't have a room that can be completely dedicated to being a playroom.
You should also check out our wide variety of kids play rugs. These rugs can get kids in the mood to learn and play, while also livening up any room. Colorful play rugs provide endless entertainment and educational activities that can help kids learn essential skills, like counting, the ABC's, and symbol recognition.
Whatever your flooring needs, Greatmats has plenty of great options of floor mats for kids.
Potential Uses for Kids Play Rugs and Floor Mats for Kids

With so many varieties of playroom flooring and kids floor mats available, let's take a look at some of the options that are most popular.
Popular Kids Floor Mats
Foam Puzzle Mats
When it comes to creating safe, fun kids' spaces, foam puzzle mats are a highly popular option. Foam mats are affordable, and they're also easy to install. Puzzle-style tiles can be pushed together in seconds in order to assemble a soft floor.
Foam play mats make for forgiving surfaces, and are available in different thicknesses, surface textures, and hardnesses. Many foam play mats offer ASTM fall height protection, and some have surface textures that help to prevent floor burns against kids' skin. Additionally, all of our foam mats are low-odor, so they're a great choice for indoor areas including playrooms, basements, and bedrooms.
For wall-to-wall installations, foam mats can be easily cut. Just use a straight edge and cut the foam play mat with a sharp knife.
Foam mats are available in a seemingly endless supply of colors, so you can create a brilliantly colored playroom to match any child's dreams.
Economical Foam Play Mats
When you need to cover a large area, such as an entire room, or if you're working with a low project budget, our four-pack of interlocking foam floor tiles are an economical playroom flooring choice. These mats come in a pack of red, yellow, green, and blue, making for a brilliantly colored floor that kids will love. The foam play mats are waterproof, scuff resistant, and easy to clean - they're everything that you would want in a kids flooring. Plus, as 12mm thick, these mats are cushiony and ideal for playroom floors and basements.
You may also want to consider our 1/2-inch thick economy puzzle style mats. Suitable for play areas, these mats are available in black, gray, and blue interlocking tiles. Installation is easy, so you can quickly finish up your project and get on with playtime.
Colorful Play Mats
Possibly our most popular playroom floor mats, our 5/8-inch interlocking foam play mats are available in 15 brilliant colors, so you can get just the look that you're searching for. Mix and match mat colors to create a fun pattern, while also making a waterproof and stain resistant play area.
Suitable for both homes and schools, these durable mats can be laid directly over a concrete floor to create a safe play area. Each mat comes with two border strips, so you can create a clean, finished border in any space. Best of all, these foam play mats are shipped right to your doorstep for the ultimate convenience. You'll receive 25 mats per carton, and can quickly get started on your flooring project.
Alternatively, our 1/2-inch floor mats are another popular product. Available in black, gray, and blue, you can purchase these mats at discount pricing, so even when you're working with a tight budget you can get the flooring that you're looking for. These floor mats are a great choice for kids bedrooms, playrooms, and basements.
Scuff Resistant Foam Play Mats
If you're looking for a truly durable mat that will hold up to rigorous play, our Home Sport and Play 7/8-inch mat is a perfect option. This scuff-resistant mat features a cross-thatch surface texture durable enough to withstand traffic from all shoe types. Though this mat is durable, it also provides excellent shock absorption - you can drop an uncooked egg onto this mat from more than 10 feet above, and the egg won't break. It actually bounces!
Because these playroom mats offer more density and firmness than our premium mats do, they are suitable for use not only in kids play rooms, but also in basements and sports facilities. Larger kids and adults can train on this mat without damaging it, and it makes for a popular option in home martial arts training spaces, too. If you have an area that you know will see heavy use, these mats are an excellent choice.
Play Mats With Fall Height Protection
Fall height protection refers to a product's ability to absorb shock and reduce the chance of serious injury when a child falls from a particular height. It's an essential feature for flooring that is used in spaced like indoor playgrounds. Any time that you have equipment that brings a child up above the ground, there's an increased risk of that child falling. Some of our mats are designed to provide fall height protection to help reduce the risk of serious injury to children in the event of a fall.
Our Home MMA BJJ mats are designed with such increased safety in mind. While primarily designed for martial arts use, these mats provide superior shock absorption. This superior shock absorption, paired with the mat's no burn surface, means that kids can play and roughhouse freely with minimized risk of injury. These mats are soft and comfortable, but they're also strong and durable enough so that adults can join in on the fun, too.
Our one-inch-thick soft home karate sport tiles are another flooring option which offers increased shock absorption and safety. These tiles are one of our newer products, and feature a smooth, leather-like surface texture. These soft, cushioned foam play mats pass the 10-foot egg drop test, providing excellent shock absorption. They have two colors, one per side, and are reversible, so you can create fun patterns in your floor. You can also reverse the mats to get the most use out of your floor.
In addition to making a great playroom flooring option, these tiles are durable enough to serve as a home sports flooring for athletic practice spaces. The mats are durable enough to withstand the weight of both kids and adults.
Skin Friendly Foam Tiles for Playroom
How many times have you heard kids complain about floor burn and skin irritation from crawling, tumbling, or falling on a carpet or other floor surface? That's why we're proud to offer a number of interlocking foam mats which also feature a floor/skin burn-free surface.
Our Home Tatami Sport Tiles, Home MMA BJJ Mats, and Indoor Playground Foam Tiles all feature our no-burn tatami surface, which will keep kids floor burn-free. Kids can wrestle and roughhouse all they want on these mats, and you won't have to worry about burns or irritation on their knees, elbows, or faces.
Carpet Topped Floor Mats
If you're looking for the comforting feel of carpeting, we have a number of practical options suitable for kids play areas. Cheer rolls offer a comfortable carpet texture and are perfect for temporary use. The rolls can be unrolled, used, and then rolled up again and stored away, so they're a popular solution when kids want to play in areas other than their designated playroom.
When looking for a carpeting option to cover a larger area, consider our Royal Interlocking Carpet Tiles. These tiles combine a residential carpeting style with the cushion and convenience of foam puzzle mats. They're easy to install and make for a comfortable floor.
Rubber Playroom Mats
For play areas that will see heavy use and lots of traffic, rubber play mats are a great option. These durable, rugged mats can hold up to plenty of use, though they're not quite as forgiving as foam.
If you're working with a larger area, like a paintball course or arcade, rubber flooring rolls may be preferable over mats. Rolled rubber can more quickly cover significant areas, and tends to be the more economical option. Additionally, rolled rubber results in fewer seams than mats or tiles will create.
Rubber play mats are frequently used in outdoor play areas, like playgrounds. Mats are often placed at the base of slides or swing sets, which can help to prevent erosion and breakdown of heavily trafficked areas. Rubber mats can handle all sorts of shoe traffic, and they're more dense than foam or plastic flooring alternatives.
Keep in mind that rubber isn't quite as forgiving as our foam flooring options, so it's better used in areas that will see intense play, like running or jumping.
PVC Playroom Flooring
If you're looking for a balance between the forgiving cushion of foam and rugged rubber footing, consider our PVC floor mats. Many PVC mats offer plenty of cushion, but are more durable than the softer foam flooring mats.
PVC offers another advantage over foam: Since PVC is a denser material, you can place furniture and other heavier objects on it without creating lasting imprints in the tiles. It's a versatile flooring option, and some PVC flooring even offers fall height protection. Many PVC flooring tiles can handle the challenges of indoor playgrounds, such as the need to be forgiving yet also durable enough to withstand heavy traffic and the weight of furniture or equipment.
Flooring Size and Thickness
You'll find plenty of flooring options in varying thicknesses and sizes. Many of our mats will work perfectly for nap time for school kids, or even for mom to use for floor exercises at home. We also offer a selection of folding and single-piece mats, which are an easy way to temporarily add extra protection and cushion to a floor. These products are ruggedly made, featuring a dense foam core and a thick vinyl that can withstand rigorous use.
Most of our foam play mats are in 2x2 foot puzzle mat-style squares, though some of the mats are as large as 3.3x3.3 feet. The tiles are lightweight and conveniently sized for easy transportation and installation.
Our folding mats and roll out mats are usually 5x10 feet, but are available in other sizes, too.
No matter where your project is located, Greatmats will surely have the right products for your installation. Our kids floor mats are popular with schools, daycares, churches, and kids play areas.
As you plan out your project, try our interactive, web-based floor planner. This online tool can create complex room layouts to scale, so you can see what your project will look like, and can determine how much material you will need. Start by entering your coverage area, selecting your product, and choosing your colors. Then, play with pattern ideas, different layouts, and even request samples or place your order.
Our kids floor mats are designed so that installation is a simple, do-it-yourself project. There are no adhesives required, and our foam play mats can be cut with a sharp utility knife.
Our foam floor mats most often ship via ground service, and are delivered directly to your door for convenience. For larger projects, we ship mats via freight delivery to any location in the lower 48 states.
