Where Can You Use Plastic Raised Floor Tiles?

By Paige Cerulli Created: July, 2017 - Modified: March, 2024

Plastic raised floor tiles are a highly popular flooring choice because of their versatility. These tiles solve some common flooring challenges, especially when you’re working with areas that are prone to excessive moisture or flooding. Whether you’re looking for flooring for a basement, garage, home gym, bathroom, dance studio, or another space, raised plastic floor tiles might be the ideal choice.

Benefits of Raised Plastic Flooring

Plastic floor tiles offer many benefits and are an affordable and practical flooring choice.


Plastic floor tiles are waterproof, so the tiles won't be destroyed if a flood occurs in your home. Many of these tiles are paired with a vinyl surface, which offers fantastic durability.

Since these tiles feature a raised base, air, and water can freely circulate underneath the tiles after a leak or a flood. This design helps to speed up the drying process, reducing the chance of mold and mildew growth.


Plastic floor tiles are modular, so their installation and removal are easy. These interlocking tiles fit together securely and easily, so you can install them yourself. If a major flood occurs or you need to remove the tiles, you can easily disconnect them and then reinstall them again in the future.

Additionally, these tiles can be installed over both hard, flat surfaces and carpet.


Plastic floor tiles are also very strong. These hard tiles can withstand the weight of foot traffic, furniture, and more, giving you plenty of options in terms of where and how you use them.


Plastic floor tiles are highly durable. They’re designed to be strong and are often backed with a multi-year warranty.
