Customer Reviews for: Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile
These tiles work great in our basement. Installed them in a checker pattern using light/dark grey. they have enough carpet and cushion to be comfy and are easy to cut and install around doors and other obstacles. We'll occasionally get water in this room from heavy rain and these tiles keep our belongings dry and are easy to pull up to dry out the room thoroughly.
After looking for quite some time to fine a carpet to put in the basement to complete my sons bedroom in the basement, These mats were what we decided. I installed them myself, very easy to install. Cutting a straight line was not good for me, I probably should have drew a line on the mat before cutting, they were easy to cut. We love the mat carpet it has a nice thickness that makes walking in his room heaven compared to the concrete or the old carpet with padding that was in there before. My teenage son loves the carpet tiles, the color, the thickness, and the softness. The price was great for them too. I hope to save up enough money to buy more to replace the old carpet in the basement living room area. I bought a few each tiles just in case I messed up on cutting them, which I did not, so a used them in the laundry room area in the basement, made a path into the room to the washer and dryer and in front of the them too, I don't mind walking down into the basement to do laundry now. These are wonderful tiles, extremely glad I found them and bought them. I am adding a photo of the room right after I finished installing the tiles, sorry the ceiling was not complete at that time.
We had a basement flood, and replace the carpet tiles in a back room with these interlocking mats. They look and feel great. I thought the surface would be more berber-like, but the felt-like carpet surface is fine. Even with cutting pieces to fit in a closet and at wall edges, it took maybe 3 hours to do the whole job in a 14' x 11' space., and that included fitting pieces under an existing model railroad table legs, lifting the legs, etc. No glue, no mess. Very happy with the results for the price at this point.
Great carpet tiles. Easy to install and great to walk on, good price too.
Product Arrived on time. Packaging is sturdy and reusable. Installation was fairly simple. Product performed well as expected.
Great product. Looks good at tradeshow, sturdy surface, reusable
It's great. Wish you sold a hard plastic box price with it or as an option. The box it comes in tears up after three tradeshows. But great price.
Shipping was very fast and the carpet tiles were better than I expected. They went down easy and I finished my room in the same day. They have turned a cold basement floor (and room) into a warm place to relax. I didn't have a lot of money to spend but these were well worth the cost. If you are on a limited budget and need something to warm up and soften a cold hard basement floor, these are perfect.
We are very happy with our purchase. The order came in very timely. Carpet tiles are softer and were easier to put down than we anticipated. I would suggest Greatmats and this product to friends and family.

The carpet tiles I purchased made a Huge difference in the look and "feel" of my Art Show Booth. It added the finish to my booth that I have been looking for. I use the carpeted panels for my back drop and with the carpet tiles - it really looked pulled together -- the colors coordinated perfectly. Many of my customers and many of the vendors made positive comments with the vendors asking where to purchase. The tiles were especially what I was looking for -- no rug to roll out or up or lug around or tape down, etc. And the cushioning made a huge difference for me - standing in my booth on concrete for a 3-day weekend. The price is very reasonable, the No Shipping Charge is an added bonus and the tiles were shipped right away with no hassle. Thanks Great Mats for a terrific product and great service.
I put this product down in my basement entertainment room. It is awesome!!!! The carpet is nice. The padding is very comfortable - more comfortable than regular carpet with padding! The only down side is that you will notice any pieces that are not installed in the proper direction (because of the carpet fabric direction) - this makes it difficult to utilize cut pieces on opposite sides of a room or where you might fit extra pieces (hence a bit more waste). I used them anyway and it was hardly noticable - it allowed me to keep me a few extra full pieces for spares. The puzzle seams are barely noticable, and the overall appearance is very nice almost like regular carpet tiles. I give this stuff "two thumbs up"!!! It is a great solution for basements and lower levels!

We used these for the first time last week at a trade show and really liked them! They provided a good amount of cushion for standing on all day and were very easy to put down and take back up.
Great product, great service. I got the mats in less than a week. It isn't a completely seemless system, but I am using them in the kids playroom as a carpet and it is fine. We have never used this product before and we had the floor laid in 45 minutes. It was great!!
We have a difficult situation to address and I think the Interlocking Carpet Tile will be the answer to that situation. We live in an earth contact house. Last spring, a gutter became blocked and overflowed at the corner of the house. The water made its way down the poured concrete wall and in through a seam between two pourings. There was so much water that it completely soaked the wall to wall carpet in three rooms and ruined the drywall in one room. We removed the ruined carpet and repaired the drywall but did not want to live with just painted concrete floors. At the same time, we knew that we did not want to install new wall to wall carpet. And, we also knew that we cannot be completely confident that there will not be another leak through that seam--even without gutter overflow. So, the carpet tile seems our best bet. It's soft and well cushioned (good in case of falls), it attractive (looks as good as traditional carpet), and it's not permanently attached to the floor. If we do get another water incursion, we'll simply take up the affected tiles, dry them off in the sun, put a little bleach water on the underside, and reinstall them one the floor is dry. Bad problem, perfect solution. We'll be ordering more for additional rooms, even those not affected by the water problem. One caution: they have expanded a little more than I anticipated so a few tiles that I trimmed to fit along walls have bulged a bit--so I will have to retrim them a little but that's not difficult since they are removable.
Installation was easy and carpet looks great in the pilot house of my boat. Very comfortable underfoot!! Used a total of 41 2x2 carpet tiles - They cut easily with a razor knife to fit around installed cabinets, etc., with no fraying or ravelling - nice clean edges. The dark gray is a little darker than we'd like but it's pretty close to what is shown on the web site. The puzzle pieces show in some lighting conditions, but are mostly invisible - certainly not objectional. Vacuums easily. Doesn't soak up water or other spills. Overall, very pleased with this new installation. If it wears well over time it will be a home run!
Great product. Cutting is not as easy as indicated, but not terrible. Would and have recommended to others
Very nice product. Looks great and installs easily. We put it down in an area in our basement for an exercise area.
