Reversible Wood Grain Foam Tiles

You may like the look of wood, but you aren’t willing to invest in authentic wood for your rental. If so, faux wood grain foam tile may be a viable option.

The reversible wood grain foam tiles are more durable than you may think, and they are also waterproof. They look and perform well in virtually any space, as they are versatile and made to last.

This is an economical temporary flooring for renters that offers anti-fatigue and comfort components. Each tile is 2x2 feet and made from 14mm thick closed-cell EVA foam. This provides great insulation against hard, cold subfloors for basement apartments and can help reduce noise transfer through the floors in upstairs apartments.

These foam tiles have a colored foam core that helps keep the floor looking nice longer and a scuff resistant thatch surface on the reverse side, so they can be flipped over and used that way.

This carpet tile can even be installed in a damp area, as it is waterproof and non-absorbent. Not only will these carpet tiles not absorb liquid, but they will also prevent the unwanted growth of mold and bacteria.
