Foam And Foam With Vinyl Modern Wood Flooring Alternatives


Reversible Wood Grain Foam Tiles are surprisingly a fabulous wood flooring alternative.

Compared to hardwood, installing this floor is so simple for a fast, DIY process. Once installed, the assembled floor delivers anti-fatigue and insulative benefits, and it is also durable and waterproof. With one side featuring a wood grain design and the reverse side featuring a robust thatch surface, either one would offer a great surface on which to stand, play, or relax.
