Options for Foam Mats for Kids

When looking to create a fun play area or bedroom that your children will love, selecting a colorful floor is a great starting point. The key aspect of our play mats for kids is the dozens of colors we offer at Greatmats. You can mix and match colors to create a unique design that the children will love to use for playtime.

Our tiles often have interlocking edges that make it easy to install them, creating a DIY project where your children can help you.

Types of Kid's Floor Mats

When picking the best floor mat for kids that will fit your plans, pay attention to the format that’s available. Although we offer interlocking kids' foam play mats for use as the primary flooring, a couple of other options are available for special use cases.
  • Puzzle style: Our interlocking foam mats are easy to assemble and simplify, creating a perfect coverage size. They work as all-purpose flooring, as well as in a playroom. There’s no need to add glue, even if the installation will be left in place for a long time.
  • Folding mats: Folding foam mats typically work for athletics, but they can provide protection for kids who often roughhouse in a playroom. They have a highly cushioned interior foam with a tough vinyl cover.
  • Rollout mats: Rollout foam mats work similarly to folding mats, as they have a vinyl or carpet top layer with the foam layer attached to the bottom. They’re primarily useful for athletics or roughhousing rather than as a bedroom floor.

Material in Floor Mats for Kids

Our kids' floor mat products primarily use EVA foam. This type of foam offers an excellent combination of cushioning and firmness, giving it impressive versatility.

Not only is EVA foam comfortable when used as a floor, but it also delivers great value, which is ideal when you want to create a fun-looking floor for a kid's bedroom or playroom.

Should kids spill water or other drinks on the EVA foam mats, they will not absorb the liquid. EVA foam has a closed cell design, which makes it waterproof.

It’s also more durable than you may think, as it can stand up to regular foot traffic. Some of these foam mats for kids have a slight texture on the surface, which helps to prevent slips, even when wet.

Texture, Pattern, and Color Options for Foam Mats for Kids

One of the biggest benefits of our puzzle playroom mats for children is the wide range of colors available. Children are sure to find a color—or several colors—that they’ll love to use on the floor.

You can even mix and match colors and patterns from the same product line. Tiles from the same product line use the same thickness and the same interlocking edge design, allowing for mixing colors.

Reversible tiles are available, too, so you can create patterns by flipping adjacent tiles or flip a tile that has damage on one side, gaining a longer lifespan out from the floor. We also offer multiple tiles with patterns.

Multiple foam mat textures are available, including:
  • Smooth
  • Thatch
  • Tatami
  • Pebble

Where to Use Kids Floor Mats

These highly versatile foam mats for kids work in a variety of locations, including:
  • Playrooms
  • Kids bedrooms
  • Basements
  • Daycare spaces
  • Preschools spaces
  • Play spaces
