Customer Reviews for: Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile
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.

I am enjoying my new carpet I layed down in my basement. It was easy to put together. I even walked around with no shoes on and my feet felt wonderful from the softness of the carpet.
The flooring was great at the tradeshow where we stood for 8 hours each day. Our neighbors were jealous asking us if they could come and stand on our floor for some relief! Thanks Greatmats!

Dominion City, MB
LOVE IT! So soft and plush feeling on the feet, and great for the kids to lie on. The dog loves lying on it too. A huge improvement in looks over the old foam play mats we had. Also, we had our first spill, and it was so easy to clean up. Installation was super easy, even our 3 year old helped out.

We used the Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile as wall to wall carpet tiles in a lower level educational space in our church that is subjected to occasional flooding. We choose this product because of its closed cell foam pad and interlocking edges that would allow it to be easily removed, dried and replaced. We are very happy with the results and with the quality and ease of installation. We carpeted approximately 800 square feet of space in about three hours.

We love Greatmats. The carpet tile looked fabulous and appeared to be seamless when installed.
I love my new look in my den. Thanks again.
very ecellent product,easy to instal.
Your product is fantastic. It goes together so well and looks great - even my wife and I could do it ourselves. We put it on our patio and we hope that it lasts a long time. We've had outdoor rugs out there and we have to keep replacing them every 2-3 years. We will be happy if this lasts for a lot longer.
I love this product. It goes togather easily and looks great. I especially love the soft texture of the carpet and the squishy feeling of the foam underneath. It feels like you are walking on a firm mattress. The seams where the pieces join shows up a little more than the pictures indicate, but this isn't a real problem, and they will probably blend in better as we walk on the floor more. The service was great, the shipping quick, and I would certainly recommend this product and company to a friend.

My husband and I installed it on our back enclosed deck. I will say that was fairply easy to install and it looks and feels great. Only time will tell if it holds up, which we think it will.

The Royal Interlocking Carpet Tiles are exactly what I was looking for. I am using them in my garage studio and I am able to spend extended time standing at my easel. Thank you, Maggie

GREAT Product. Just what we wanted. Simple to use, Simple to Store. Good Looking product. I will use GREATMATS for all my mat needs. Bill Huber -President, Reno Toy Storage
First use at our trade show went well. More comfortable on the back than our old carpet. Hopefully it will stand up to repeated used.
All in all, these mats are just what I hoped for. The foam backing is extremely resistant to indentation (I have two heavily loaded shelf sets on them, and they hardly dent the mats), but they feel soft when I walk across them. They were easy to install and cutting them to fit went well. My only concerns are that there is a bit of color difference between some of the squares, and I'm still vacuuming up a lot of mats' fibers. The mats are in a basement area, so the color issue is a minimal one.
