Foam Tile Flooring For Under $1.50 Per Square Foot

The ½ inch Economy Foam Mat is the cheapest available, at less than $5 per tile. Plus, Greatmats often offers free shipping on this product. This is a suitable foam tile flooring product for a home basement, workout room, and children’s play space.

Each mat is 2x2 feet and will easily interlock to other mats with their tight fitting tabs. These are waterproof, lead free, and latex free, and they are also shock absorbing. They provide a soft footing for aerobic workouts and a cushioned surface on which to do floor exercises.

The foam mats are lighter than rubber, making them a great portable option. They are available in black, blue, or gray, and they carry with them a 1 year limited warranty.



Wood Grain Foam Tiles offer a faux wood tile flooring that is the perfect mix of cozy comfort and aesthetic appeal. Even though they are very affordable, at roughly $1.40 per square foot, they truly resemble a realistic, rich hardwood. Available in a variety of wood grain designs, along with grey and black, these foam tiles compliment any style preference.

These closed cell foam tiles are free of lead and latex, and they are waterproof. They are a breeze to install in any place or space, and because they each weigh only 1.2 pounds, they are easy to pick up, move, and lay in different locations. They can be used in virtually any area in the home and interlock tightly together leaving virtually no gaps.

This foam tile flooring offers cushion, comfort, and style. It carries with it a 1 year limited warranty.



Foam Puzzle Play Mats are another option costing less than $1.50 per square foot of coverage. Priced at approximately $5.65 per tile, or around $1.42 per square foot, this ½ inch thick mat is waterproof and soft and available in 3 colors. They are each 24x24 inches and great for home basement floors and gyms - in addition to kids’ floors.

These foam mats feature tight fitting interlocking tabs and have just enough shock absorption to provide a softer landing should your child trip and fall when running or playing in a basement or other space. They can also provide cushion for exercises and workouts and feature a scuff-resistant top texture.

Lead and latex free, they carry with them a 1 year limited warranty.

Foam Tile Flooring For $1.50 And Over Per Square Foot

Interlocking Dog Agility Mats cost approximately $16.50 per tile, which equates to roughly $1.53 per square foot of coverage. One major difference between this foam tile flooring and the rest on the list is that they are both thicker (¾ inch) and have larger dimensions at 1x1 meter per tile. Something to keep in mind is that with the increased size of the tiles, comes the fact that they must ship via freight delivery, which does run a higher cost than ground shipping.

Dog agility mats are the perfect option for any agility space, providing maximum comfort for trainers and dogs. Made of EVA foam, they allow dogs to train longer without fatigue and injury. They also provide excellent traction with their non slip grip top, and they are densely constructed and free from lead and latex.

The mats are waterproof and easy to clean with a rag or damp mop and mild household cleaner. They can also be vacuumed for dry dirt, dust or debris.

These tiles are lightweight, portable, and designed to last! They don’t require adhesive or padding for installation, they make for an efficient DIY dog agility flooring. This excellent product carries with it a 1 year limited warranty.



Premium Foam Kids & Gym Mats cost approximately $6.25 per tile, which equates to roughly $1.56 per square foot. Like most foam floor tiles of this size, they often have free shipping in the lower 48 states.

They are a product to choose to transform any space into a vibrant, safe, and cushioned one. These mats are ⅝ inch thick and offer thermal insulation, noise suppression, and/or waterproof properties. They are also stain resistant and shock absorbing. They come in 15 different colors.

They feature a thatch surface texture and stand up to constant use and resist scuffing. They include a 1-year warranty against product defects, but you can expect them to last for 10 years or more under normal use.
