What Color Are Foam Tiles?

Foam tiles offer many benefits that make them a highly popular flooring choice, but one of the greatest benefits is the fact that foam comes in so many different colors. No matter what you’re envisioning for your space, chances are you’ll be able to find a foam tile that can bring that vision to life.

Foam Tile Color Options

When you choose foam tiles, you’ll have plenty of color and finish options. Foam tiles are available in the bright and colorful hues as well as in more reserved and neutral tones, so they’ll work for just about any space and decor.

If you’re looking for bright, vivid colors, many of our EVA foam mats will do the trick. You’ll get plenty of variety and can craft an eye-catching floor.

Many of our kids mats and martial arts mats are dual sided, and most feature different colors on their backs. These reversible mats allow you to easily create fun patterns simply by flipping the tiles over. They also ensure you get maximum use out of each tile, since you can flip it over as one side gets worn and maximize its lifespan.

These bright foam tile colors include everything from an eye-catching pink to neon greens, as well as classic reds, white, yellows and blues. They’re great choices for kids’ rooms, nurseries, schools, playrooms, and more.

If you’re looking for something a little more reserved, you’ll find it in our home and gym mats, as well as some of our martial arts mats. These mats are available in your typical blue and red, but they also come in black, green, gray and even wood grain, which can be a good option if you’re looking for a classy, professional appearance for a weight or workout room.

Our foam tiles can also create a classy, more traditional addition to your room. Many of our non-athletic foam tiles are also available in a variety of wood grain patterns that are highly realistic, giving you the aesthetic of hardwood without the expense or high amount of maintenance.

These wood grain tiles are available in a variety of finishes that resemble different woods, so you can opt for a lighter pine, a darker hardwood, or something in between. These tiles are popular choices for basements, trade show booths, and other areas where a traditional wood floor isn’t an option.

Tips for Choosing the Right Foam Tile Colors

When choosing your foam tile colors, think about the overall look that you want your room to have. You might want to consider the existing wall colors and decor when deciding what color foam tile is right for the space.

For kids’ areas or gyms, consider buying reversible, dual-sided tiles or buying tiles in two or more colors. You can then use the multiple colors to create different patterns or borders in the flooring.

If you’re buying martial arts mats, you can flip mats over to create different training or competition areas and boundaries. This is particularly helpful when creating tournament or circuit training spaces for practice.

The way that you’ll be using the room may also affect your tile color choice. Lighter colors tend to show stains, should they occur, more easily. Black flooring is more inclined to show dusty footprints. If you know that the area will see frequent use and foot traffic, then opting for a midtone color or a wood grain pattern can help to conceal some dirt.

Additional Considerations When Choosing Your Foam Tiles

While choosing tiles that are available in your desired color is always a consideration, it’s also important to choose tiles that are right for the area where you’ll be installing them. Our tiles vary in their construction and performance, so think carefully about the properties that you need your flooring to have.

For example, some of our foam tiles are more dense or firm than others, and while some can withstand increased weight and shoe traffic, others can be more easily damaged by that type of use. Our thicker foam tiles tend to be more durable and cushioning, but you’ll also want to make sure that the tile thickness doesn’t interfere with doors.

You’ll also want to consider whether you want a tile that offers fall height protection, which can increase safety for kids or athletes. Tiles with fall height protection tend to cost a bit more than tiles that don’t offer that protection, but it can be well worth that investment.

It’s also important to choose a product that’s right for the space where you’ll be installing it. All of our foam tiles are waterproof and suitable for installation in areas where they may be exposed to moisture. Some products are even designed specifically for outdoor use in areas like water parks.
