Padded Carpet Tiles

The top of these carpet tiles is laid with a plush durable carpeting. This carpet is bonded to a durable foam base, providing a strong tile that can withstand foot traffic at trade shows, home furniture and more. Each tile is 2-feet by 2-feet wide, allowing you to cover a large space quickly. To hold together, the edges of the tiles are cut into a precise puzzle design, creating a firm hold with minimal seams. They come with border strips included, so you'll have everything you need to complete the flooring. If you decide to relocate the carpet tiles, simply stack them together and take them with you. At just under 1.5 pounds per tile, and 2 feet in width Royal carpet tiles are easy to carry for trade show booth floor installations.

One of the top advantages for these tiles is that they are completely non-absorbent. This means the interlocking carpet tiles will not absorb water or other liquids, which can be a major concern, especially when placing interlocking carpet squares in a basement. If water seeps into your basement, if you have spilled drinks, or if there are accidents from pets or young children, the tiles will not absorb liquids, which helps keep down mold and bacteria.

Comfortable to walk on, and available in five colors, these interlocking tiles provide excellent cushioning over your basement floor.

Carpet Installation is Simple and Easy!

If your project at hand calls for a lightweight, easy to install material, the Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile may be just what you need. The waterproof tiles require no adhesive or carpet pads to install. This is a simple, do-it-yourself installation project. The interlocking tiles can be cut with a sharp utility knife to fit wall to wall. Place the tiles directly over any flat, hard surface, including, concrete, wood, and ceramic flooring. It's universal interlocking design allows you to interlock the tiles in any direction.

To start the process, you must first clean the subfloor so there is no dirt, debris, grease, water, or obstructions of any kind underneath. Next, start in one corner of the room with a carpet tile firmly against the wall and add tiles down the wall. Continue to add tiles, making sure to follow the directional arrows on the bottom of the tiles at all times. The directional arrows will guide the installation so that the carpet grain is all running in the same direction.

When you approach the opposite wall, you can cut the tiles to fit the rest of the room. Leave a gap of about 1/2 inch, allowing for expansion of floor tiles, which can occur with varying room temperatures.

During the installation check is the orientation of the tiles, all carpet has a grain, and we want to make sure the carpet is basically turned and facing the same direction. In addition to this, carpet shading can and does vary and this is more visible in general with this type of interlocking tiles.

Fast Cleaning of Carpet with no Special Tools

Do you have a vacuum, some rags, and a sink? Then you can handle all the cleaning for this interlocking carpet tile.

To clean these interlocking carpet squares, you can simply use a vacuum cleaner to remove dirt, sand, and debris from the surface. Any household vacuum will work, but it's recommended that you test a small section of the interlocking carpet squares to make sure your vacuum will not damage the surface. With simple vacuuming, you'll remove most of the dust, dirt, and crumbs that can damage the carpet top.

For set-in stains, you can use a damp rag to gently remove and spills or liquids. For added convenience, you can even remove the carpet tile from the floor and wash with warm running water in a sink or tub.

Carpet Surface Colors

You can choose quality colors for your surface when you purchase this interlocking carpet tile. There are five different color options, giving you choices for each specific area. For a straightforward, professional look, you can choose dark charcoal, dark grey, or light grey. However, if you want a little more color and character, the tan tiles are always popular. For even more color, the blue tiles deliver a high-quality appearance while maintaining a great look. No matter which interlocking carpet squares you choose, you'll get a durable product with a fantastic carpet top.

The 5/8-inch Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile is thicker, with a carpeted top that is softer and more abundant than most other carpet tiles. Available in five different colors, each tile includes two border strips which allow them to be used as a center, border or corner piece. Whether they are used for work or relaxation, these carpet squares are eye-pleasing and easy to walk on. Our interlocking carpet tile can add warmth and comfort to any living space.

Interlocking carpet tiles for basements have become common in today's market, and you'll find that we can provide a much softer carpet tile than most. The plush carpeted surface is similar to what you might find in a luxury vehicle. In terms of comfort and quality, this is a far nicer material than common fibrous, burlap-like carpeting. Interlocking carpeted tiles are a convenient option, and are easy to install; not even tape is necessary! Interlock the tiles together and cut with a sharp utility knife to fit the area of the room and you have a wonderful surface that lasts for years.

The Right Product for Many Different Locations

The carpet bonded EVA and Polyethylene foam material is thick, soft, and comfortable to walk on, making our Royal Interlocking Carpet Tiles a great option for basement floors, theaters, trade show booths and even boat flooring.

Our puzzle style carpet tiles can also be a great option for retail installation spaces, where a long lasting, durable carpet tile is needed, such as behind retail counters. The Royal interlocking carpet square is quality designed to last for years, so you have the perfect balance between elegant style and long-term reliability. You can also choose the interlocking carpet tile surface to meet your business's style, such as black for a modern, sleek design or tan for a more natural or rustic appearance.

Royal interlocking carpet tiles are great for trade show booths, giving a professional look and a comfortable, energetic feel. This carpet tile is waterproof, stain-resistant, and works excellent on basement floors, providing comfort and warmth.

While tiles will withstand the weight of vehicles, you may find that indents will occur. For garage installations, it's more appropriate to use carpet tiles interlocking together to make a lounge or social area. They can be laid out quickly, and if you ever want the space back for a vehicle or equipment, they can be disassembled and removed with little effort.

Anti-fatigue Makes Them Perfect for Work

If you are using these tiles for a commercial space, retail environments, or trade show booths, you could spend hours on your feet. Fortunately, our carpet tiles have a bottom structure that is a 1/2-inch thick foam material designed to provide anti-fatigue benefits, perfect for standing for long periods of time. You can create an interlocking rug for active work stations. The tiles are also strong enough to last under tables and chairs, however, like any cushioned carpeted area, heavy furniture left for long periods of time will likely leave indents without furniture coasters under the legs.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

I'm afraid these carpets will get dented or puncture by heavy furniture. Do you recommend using furniture sliders to protect this carpet tiles?
When moving furniture around, the sliders are a good idea, under the feet of the furniture you can use coasters to disperse the weight so that the feet don't indent the material.
How do you clean this carpets if you lay an entire basement floor with them? It would be too much work to take them all outside to wash them and then reinstall them. Can you use Stanley Steamer or another carpet cleaning company or a rug shampooer?
This carpet can be vacuumed and cleaned like other carpeting material. We dont have experience with the steam cleaning option.
Can you wear high heels on this without indenting or messing it up?
Yes. High heels will not damage these carpet tiles.
Could you park a lightweight sports car on it?
You could, and the weight of the car would most likely leave indentations in the foam base.
Are these sold in any retail store?
We only sell this product via the web.
Has anyone walked with heels on these? Will high or low heels / women's shoes puncture this flooring?
High heels will not puncture this carpet tile.
Are the edge borders beveled?
With this product they are not.
Could this be used as the flooring in a home gym? (ie. put a pilates machine and a small weight rack on it.) Is it water resistant? Could I scotch guard it to protect from sweat?
The carpet is waterproof, we are not sure about the Scotchguard, and yes home gym equipment can be placed on top of these carpet tiles.
Can these tiles be used on a covered porch? There is some water that comes in and temperature changes.
Yes but then you have to take the carpet up each time it gets wet for drying purposes. Maybe go with a perforated pvc tiles like our Staylock Perforated Tile
Can these carpet tiles be glued down?
They can be and they don't need to be, as they are interlocking tiles.
Would these carpet tiles be good for a classroom rug? Is the carpet soft, or does it have more of a scratchy feel?
The carpeting has a soft feel, and is made from a polypropylene and polyethylene blend. The material is waterproof and easy to clean. You may find helpful information in our Knowledge Base about this. This blog addresses the different types of uses other customers have found the tiles to work well for.
Can these be placed over existing carpet in order to protect it from pet stains and hair?
Yes this is fine.
I'm worried that dog and cat hair will get intertwined with the nap and be very difficult to vacuum up. Is this a legitimate concern? Has anyone had a problem with this?
Not really sure about this one, it could happen.
Which color has less of a seam appearance when put together in a large area?
Maybe the darker colors will show less seams. If you are ok with a checkerboard pattern, alternating colors is the best way to disguise any color variations that may be present.
What is the best way to install wall-to-wall if your room is not square?
The tiles can be custom installed with custom cuts using a sharp utility knife. This blog and video in our Knowledge Base walks you through the installation process, including custom fitting the carpet tiles if they need to be cut.
One of the other questions mentions edge-borders. Are those edge-borders separate thin strips or can the tiles be purchased such that the perimeter tiles have the edge-borders ''built-in'' to the edge tiles? ... i.e., do the four corner tiles and the 12 interior edge tiles on a 10' x 10' have a straight edge?
All of the tiles are the same, all of the borders are separate snap on pieces and no tiles have a built in edge.
my need is for area rugs/anti fatigue mats in a basement that gets water seepage during heavy rains. When this happens my anti fatigue mats and area rugs get soaked, and are very heavy to remove and take outside to dry out. Is your product a solution? Do these soak up water if I get water in my basement? Or will they remain dry and the water will travel around them? Thanks in advance.
The carpet tiles do not absorb water themselves. I would also consider using aperforated modular tile such as our Patio Outdoor Tile here,, underneath your existing fatigue mats.
How well does this help with insulating the floor?
The carpet tile will stay the same temperature as the room temperature.
how well would this hold up driving a small car over it and parking it ?
This indoor carpet tile is not designed for and not tested for autos.
How many tiles will it take to do a room 25x25
To determine the tile count per job, either use the quick calculator on the product page or the floor plan designer. In this case its 169 tiles.
How would you cut the tiles to fit around a semi-circled fireplace hearth?
Cut these interlocking padded carpet ties with a sharp utility knife. Perhaps make a template for the curved area.
I'd like to lay this over a concrete floor that has been revealed to have old black mastic adhesive. Is it OK to put a vapor shield under these tiles?
Yes you can install a plastic vapor sheet under these interlocking carpet tiles.
I'm looking for a product that can be used on radiant heat floors. Would this work?
Foam tiles are completely safe to use over in-floor heating systems. However, foam does provide a layer of insulation between the floor and the room, so it may block a small amount of heat from escaping the floor. Further, foam tiles can expand with changes in heat and humidity. We suggest allowing the foam tiles to acclimate to a room before installing. It's also smart to allow for a small gap between tiles and wall when executing wall-to-wall installations.
Will the tiles lay flat on uneven floors?
These interlocking squares will flow with slopes and work well over slight imperfections. If you have large gaps or divots, they should be corrected before adding another flooring.
Does these carpet tiles have any insulation value
These tiles have a similar insulation value to carpet.
Can these carpet tiles be used for a pontoon boat floor?
These mats are not designed for outdoor use. However, we have had customers use these for their boats and pontoons with success. We suggest taking them up when not in use or covering.
I'm looking for a carpet tile to go on my deck boat that will hold up so i don't half to pull all my seating and everything off just to replace the floor and walk way area. do you have that, I have a lot of friends with pontoon boats that would buy it for the same reason.
These mats are not designed for outdoor use. Customers use these for their boats and pontoons decks with success. We suggest taking them up when not in use or covering. These mats can be cut to fit using a sharp utility knife to fit around your seating.

Customer Rating:

They were received promptly. Easy and quick installation and they look great. The only negative for me was that the shipping cost was high in my opinion.

Mears, MI

Customer Rating:

Working with GreatMats was easy. The website worked well, and emails to customer service were quickly answered with good feedback.

The carpet tiles themselves are nice and thick. It seems like they are of good quality. All of the pieces fit together snugly. As others have said, there is some variation in color between some of the tiles, but for our basement recreation room this was the fastest and best option for getting down a nice, soft flooring that helps make the room an inviting space.

I've attached a photo to show the finished product. In all honesty, if the photo was taken from the other end of the room the tile seams show more because of what direction the light comes from. For our situation seeing the seams does not bother us at all.

Customer Rating:

Got the carpet tiles for my basement. Easy to install. It's seamless between the tiles, vacuum is not a problem; The color is a little bit inconsistent if you're ordering the same color. But you can play around to get a lighter/slightly darker alternate pattern, which is good. The thickness is perfect, they feel good on feet. customer service is very helpful in giving me ideas of the restock time.

Port Matilda, PA

Customer Rating:

I did quite a bit of research about interlocking carpet tiles before I made this purchase. In fact, I bought some less expensive tiles from a big name retailer that starts with a ''W''. Those tiles were only 3/8'' thick and the carpet portion of the tile seemed to just be glued on fabric. I returned those settled on GreatMats Royal Interlocking Carpet Tiles as my final choice.

The tiles arrived on the third day after I place my order. Boy, what a difference between these and the less expensive brand I tried early on. The padding on these is terrific, the carpet portion actually feels like carpet (and not a glue on piece of fabric). To be certain, this is a low nap carpet, but it will be used below grade and will have grand children running all over it.

The carpet goes down quickly, the interlocking pieces seem to hold very well, and overall the installation is going very well. Since neither the foam nor the carpet absorbs water, they should be a breeze to clean and can be removed and dried out if there is any water intrusion in the basement.

Overall, I am very impressed. I am hopeful that they will hold up well to foot traffic. Time will tell.

Special thanks to Joanne at GreatMats for sending me a sample of the carpet and for handling my order efficiently and quickly!

They looked great once installed.. but the shed a lot while people walked over them. That part kinda disappointed me. I will be using them at future trips... but I will make sure I take a vacuum with me next time.

Port Matilda, PA

Customer Rating:

I love this product for our basement, it is soft and thick so we don't feel the concrete floor. It does smell like rubber, we installed it a little less then a week ago so I am waiting to see if the smell dissipates. The installation was fairly easy, our walls aren't straight which made for a few edges that needed to be cut again.

Larchmont, NY

Customer Rating:

This is a great option for basements that occasionally get wet. We had 16 inches in a couple of days and got water in our basement for the first time in years. But now we put down these interlocking tiles and the next time we get a deluge of rain we can just pull them up and let the basement dry and then put them back down again. They are foam backed so won't absorb moisture even if there is a little water that seeps through the cracks of the floor. Plus these tiles are so soft to walk on. Another bonus is that I was worried about vacuuming them and if carpet would catch in the vacuum between the tiles. But it didn't at all!

Hull, IA

If the color was consistent this product would receive 5 stars.


Customer Rating:

Easy to install. Good quality. Customer service is also very good. These were not in stock and (I have half of the job done) I was able to talk to a real person who gave me ideas of the restock time and was able to take my order for when they came in. Thinking of using them in an upstairs bedroom too.
