Top 5 Basement Floors for Dens

Keep in mind both material and design of basement den flooring


By Julia Nass

A den may be a sanctuary room reserved to escape the noise or chaos of the rest of the house, a grown-ups only entertainment or office space, or maybe it's a room for the whole family to enjoy. No matter the purpose, the perfect den design starts with the flooring. So what makes the perfect den floor? There's not one specific answer, as the perfect floor is always up to interpretation depending on needs. However, there are a few things that hold up across the board. For example, when putting a den into the basement, it's important to keep moisture in mind. Basements tend to have more moisture issues than the rest of the house, and flooring should be able to hold up in those increased moisture environments. At the same time, den floors should be inviting, comfortable and barefoot friendly. Den floors should adhere to all of your style and budget expectations as well; a floor should be good looking without breaking the bank. Finally, den floors should be easy to maintain and keep clean.

With all of that and more in mind, Greatmats offers its top five basement floors for dens:

1. Sports Team Carpet Tiles


Greatmats sports team carpet tile baseball Chicago cubsSports Team Carpet Tiles are a unique, decorative basement flooring option crafted for the sports enthusiast. These carpet tiles, available with Major League Baseball, National Football League and National Hockey League team logos, come a pack of 20 tiles, 10 featuring team logos and 10 featuring solid team colors to be arranged in any way you choose. Carpet tiles are printed with a long-lasting, vibrant dye. Ultimately, tiles will become a comfy, eye-pleasing tribute to your favorite team.

Team Carpet Tiles are made with nylon carpet bonded to a dependable vinyl base. To install, simply arrange tiles. Next, unpeel the double sided adhesive corner pads and stick down. Once in place, tiles will not shift around or separate over time. For wall-to-wall installations, tiles can be cut down with a sharp utility knife. Vacuum tiles for regular maintenance.

Select college and university team carpet tiles are also available.

2. Cork Laminate Floor Tile

Cork Laminate flooring is an innovative, environmentally-friendly flooring that creates stylish softness in a basement den. The elasticity and cushion of cork flooring relieves the strain of standing. Tiles provide both heat and sound insulation and are sure to help make the room one you can be in for hours at a time. These basement flooring tiles don't require any adhesives or tools for installation; with the CORKLOC system, all it takes is a simple dry lay of materials.

Even after years of use, Cork Laminate flooring will still look like the day it was laid. The abrasion-proof surface of this cork provides comfort without the worry of scratching, scuffing or marking the cork. The surface finish prevents dirt, water and grime from becoming trapped, so tiles stay fresh. Clean tiles by vacuuming regularly or sweeping with a soft-bristled brush. If using a cleaning detergent, be sure to use something mild, as abrasive solvents will damage the floor.

3. TileFlex Tile

Instantly turn the basement den into an upscale room with TileFlex tiles. These tiles come in 10 different classy colors and designs including redwood, sienna and beige slate. In addition to the upscale look of TileFlex tiles, they provide versatility. These basement floor tiles are durable enough to hold the weight of any office furniture. At the same time, they are anti-fatigue and ergonomic, so they make great exercise floors as well.

TileFlex tiles are also designed for wet areas. If the basement sees a high-level of moisture, these tiles are a perfect fit as they allow for airflow underneath flooring. These interlocking tiles for basements are constructed with a luxury vinyl surface on a polypropylene plastic base. Tiles are 100 percent waterproof and never need waxing or resurfacing. For added cushion, install a rubber underlayment underneath TileFlex basement floor tiles.

4. CarpetFlex Tile

Carpetflex Tiles are another amazing raised basement floor tile option for a den. Like TileFlex tiles, these basement flooring tiles are constructed with a durable polypropylene plastic base, but they come with a plush carpet surface instead of vinyl. The plush carpet surface brings warmth and coziness to the space, a definite pro for any den room. Meanwhile, the raised base, which allows water to evaporate underneath flooring, solves issues associated with carpeting in the basement. Instead of worrying about moisture becoming trapped in or under the carpet, you'll rest easy with CarpetFlex tiles.

Carpeted basement floor tiles are a perfect fit for a den; they bring warmth and coziness to the room. Tile dimensions are 1 x 1 foot, and they only weigh one pound each. Effortlessly install these interlocking tiles for basements by clicking tiles together with your own two hands. Tiles can be installed over any hard, flat surface. Vacuum tiles to keep them clean.

5. Wood Grain Foam Tiles

If you are eager for a wood aesthetic but don't want all of the hassle of wood, Wood Grain Foam Tiles are the solution. Unlike hardwood, foam basement floor tiles won't warp or rot, and they never need refinishing. Moreover, these tiles provide the classy look of wood with 10 times the cushion and comfort.

Wood-Grain Foam basement flooring tiles are made of closed-cell EVA foam. Consequently, the tiles are completely waterproof. Installation could not be any easier; simply place these interlocking tiles for basements next to one another on the floor. At 2 x 2 feet, tiles are so lightweight and easy to handle that deinstallation and transportation is effortless as well.

Top 5 Basement Floors for Exercise Areas

What to Look for in Basement Floors for Exercise Areas

By Julia Nass

The right type of basement exercise flooring for one individual is certain to differ from another; it all depends on what kind of exercise is happening. In general, however, flooring needs to be tough enough to undergo vigorous use and intense movement. At the same time, basement gym flooring should also be supportive and cushioned as to prevent joint discomfort or damage. For basement-specific exercise areas, it's particularly important to be cognizant of moisture levels. Flooring should be able to stave off the negative effects of moisture, like mold, mildew and harmful bacteria.

To help guide you in making the right basement gym flooring decision, Greatmats compiled a list of the top five basement floors ideal for exercise areas. Read on to discover details about all five products.

1. Max Tiles


Greatmats MaxTile vinyl top plastic base exercise gym basement floor tileIf you are looking for a solution for a moisture-heavy basement exercise area (high humidity locations, hot yoga rooms, etc.), Max Tile Raised Flooring is an excellent solution. These raised tiles prevent moisture from becoming trapped and building up below flooring because air can flow underneath the raised base.

Max Tiles are made of a sturdy polypropylene base that supports a 3 mm thick laminate vinyl surface top that never needs refinishing.

When tiles do get dirty, they can be cleaned with just a damp mop. Max raised tiles connect together with tab and loop system that will never fail. For extra cushion or insulation, simply install rolled rubber underlayment beneath tiles.

2. StayLock Bump Top

3. Plyometric Rubber Roll (8 mm 4x10 ft Black)


Greatmats plyometric rubber roll basement garage
This rubber flooring for basements is a go-to choice for high-quality yet economic basement gym flooring. Plyometric Rubber Rolls are long-lasting, tough and at such a low price, they pay themselves off in no time. Plyometric rubber basement flooring is specifically designed to absorb the shock of explosive movements in a rigorous workout, which makes it great for aerobics and plyometric exercise.

Plyo Rolls are made of lower-density rubber, which provides more cushion and shock absorption than other rubber options. This rubber flooring for basements comes in 1/2 and 3/8 inch thicknesses and standard rolls are 4 x 10 feet. Lay rolls side by side for wider flooring, or cut rolls down with a sharp utility knife to fit smaller spaces. Plyometric rubber basement flooring can be laid without the use of any adhesives. For home basements, this comes in handy if ever a need arises to dry out the subfloor. If mopping with product, make sure to always use a pH neutral cleaner with rubber flooring. Otherwise rubber basement flooring can just be vacuumed.

4. ErgoMatta CushionTred (Solid)


Greatmats ErgoMatta plastic gym tile
ErgoMatta CushionTred is industrial-strength anti-fatigue flooring that comes with a 5-year warranty. These basement gym flooring tiles are made from 100 percent recycled rubber and flexible PVC plastic. Therefore, the flooring is both tough and supportive, cushioned and stable, durable and ergonomic. Tiles have a diamond-tread surface to minimize the danger of slips and falls. They also have sound-dampening qualities, which is a plus for any type of exercise.

Tiles come in eight different colors, giving you all the creative freedom to choose the best look for your basement. With the interlocking connection system, installation and deinstallation of flooring is a breeze.

5. Gym Floor Tile Pebble Top (3/4 Inch)


Greatmats Gym floor garage foam tile pebble top blackSometimes, foam is not dense enough to withstand the weight of heavy exercise equipment without being damaged. Gym Floor Pebble Top Tiles, however, are made of premium EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) foam that is denser and more durable than other foam tiles. The pebble surface pattern contributes to the durability of the foam as well. Consequently, they can support the weight of weight machines, treadmills, or any other exercise equipment. These tiles are about as close as one can get to rubber basement flooring without the rubber.

Gym Floor Pebble Top Tiles provide more cushion and are lighter weight than rubber, which is why some people choose these foam tiles over their rubber counterpart. These tiles do not absorb water at all, which is another perk, especially for basement gym flooring. The tiles are kid friendly, connect with an easy interlocking system, and can be easily cut down with a box cutter or utility knife.

Which Sports Use Rubber Flooring and Why?

Durability and Impact Absorption Are Just the Start of Rubber Flooring's Benefits to Athletics


By Julia Nass

Like all equipment in an athletic facility, it's essential sports flooring promotes health and safety. Because so many sports involve high impact activity and movement, flooring must be able to protect users from injury. Sports floors must also be resilient. Without a tough floor, wear and tear will yield any protective features ineffective.

Rubber is the standard flooring material for athletic facilities all over the globe. Rubber is extremely durable and offers shock absorption. It can lessen the severity of accidents and safeguard against injuries. Rubber flooring is extremely versatile and can be used for multi-function floors. That being said, different thicknesses and styles of rubber work for different sports. Let's take a look at what sports most commonly utilize rubber flooring, and what kinds of rubber flooring works best.

Weight Training



Rubber is a go-to flooring solution for weight rooms. However, it's best to utilize a variety of rubber flooring based on the different weight-training areas. Heavy equipment requires a rubber floor that is dense and sturdy enough to hold tons of weight without bending or breaking. Free weight areas need thicker rubber that provides bounce back and cushion for dropped weights. For olympic lifts, it is essential that the rubber floor is firm enough to allow for maximum output as well as protecting the floor below.

Greatmats rubber floor commercial gym

Running


Track and field also utilize rubber flooring - particularly indoor tracks. Obviously, rubber used for tracks need to be durable enough to withstand heavy foot traffic. Not only that, but the material has to be dense and resilient enough that it's not punctured or torn by running spikes. Track rubber flooring should also be flexible enough that it can adhere to the bends in a track.

Greatmats rubber floor roll running

Aerobics and Plyometrics


Plyometric drills are all about fast, powerful and explosive movements, which creates a harder impact upon landing. Many aerobics exercises can also create jarring movements, such as jumping, lunging, and running. Because of this, rubber flooring designed for plyometrics and aerobics should be more porous to allow for greater shock-absorption and cushioning. This flooring also provides excellent grip for changes in direction.

Greatmats aerobics plyometrics rubber floor


Ice Rinks


You might be thinking to yourself, why would an ice rink use rubber? This one may not be as obvious. Common areas around the ice require protective surfaces where people can safely walk with skates on. Rubber is the most common material for ice rinks in areas surrounding the actual ice, including the bench. Rubber ice rink flooring is guaranteed to take a hit from all those skates, so it's important to choose a durable, sturdy rubber that won't be torn up with skate traffic.

Greatmats rolled rubber hockey ice arena

Multi-Functional Rubber Floors


Although there are sports that don't necessarily use rubber as a choice flooring, you can still use rubber surfaces as a general sports flooring. Basketball, soccer, and volleyball, for example, can all be played on rubber floors. That's why rubber flooring makes a good all-around flooring solution for rooms that will be put to many different athletic uses. For general usage, choose a rubber that falls in the middle density-wise. That way, rubber will remain absorptive while balls can bounce on it.



Greatmats weight room rubber rolls Crossfit

When Not to Use Rubber


Rubber is a grippy material and yields too much friction for some sports. Dance, for example, requires surfaces feet can turn on without grip. Rubber isn't recommended for martial arts either. Again, the surface is too grippy and too hard for spins or learning throws and falls.

Rubber is, however, popular as a subfloor or underlayment layer for sports that require impact absorption and a less grippy surface.

Types of Rubber Flooring


Now that you have an idea of the sports that use rubber flooring, you can start looking closer at specifics. At Greatmats, rubber flooring comes in three main forms: mats, tiles and rolls. Rubber mats are a great and easy way to bring the benefits of rubber flooring into any room. Mats can add extra cushion or thickness over smaller areas that need it.

Rubber tiles and rubber rolls are also extremely easy installations. Interlocking rubber tiles are one of the sturdier and dense options. Tiles can be installed by your own hand just by laying down and connecting pieces.

Rubber rolls are just as easy to lay out, provided you have enough help to carry the heavy rolls, and can be adhered to the floor with double-sided floor tape or floor glue. Of the three, rubber rolls are often the most economical choice and leave the fewest seams.

Keep It Clean


Greatmats rubber flooring with Karl Streit Crossfit coachNo matter what type of rubber you go for, it's important to keep athletic flooring well maintained. Athletic facilities are vulnerable to bacteria and fungus growth, so it's important to regularly clean floors. Rubber flooring should be cleaned with a pH neutral cleaner, as other cleaners can erode the material.

Ultimately, it's key to know your environment before installing a rubber sports floor. Not all activities have the same needs: weight training is sure to require a different rubber thickness than an indoor track. Not only that, but you must factor usage into the equation. The same athletic flooring for a small community center may not work in a busy college training facility, even if the activity is the same. Greatmats is here to help you sort through all of the options that exist out there. Customer service representatives can help you choose a thickness and style that will meet your athletic flooring needs.

Fear not. There are all kinds of flooring specifically made to hold up against pervasive water, dirt and chemicals. Although there is a variety of flooring that is suitable for laundry rooms, it's important that laundry room flooring all share a few qualities. First, it should be able to withstand heavy use, as laundry rooms can be one of the more frequented rooms in the entire house. Second, flooring needs to be able to withstand not just the heavy weight of the washer and dryer, but the movement and vibrations that can occur when the machines are in use. Further, laundry rooms are often right off main throughways in a home, so naturally you won't want to sacrifice the aesthetics of the house for the laundry room floor. Finally, because the messes are guaranteed to happen, they should be easy to clean. That's why we suggest flooring with the entire package: easy maintenance, constant durability and attractive aesthetics.

Given all of these factors, Greatmats suggests plastic and vinyl flooring as the best material options. Tiles made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic, polypropylene plastic and vinyl are popular waterproof flooring choices. Many plastic floor tiles are durable enough to withstand heavy foot traffic and standing water. Further, it's possible to add a sealer to plastic floor tiles to increase resistance to chemicals and other spills. You can find plastic and vinyl tiles or vinyl sheets in a huge variety of colors and designs. Some of our favorites for laundry room flooring includes the following:

Greatmats hiddenlock slate plastic basement floor 1. HiddenLock Slate Floor Tile


These PVC tiles come in earth tones and yield a classy, slate aesthetic. Unlike slate, however, these tiles are lightweight, economical and easily to install all by oneself. HiddenLock Slate Floor Tiles connect together with a strong, snap-in-place system that presents a seamless floor. These laundry room floor tiles are water resistant, durable and made to withstand heavy use and foot traffic. They are resistant to acids and oils and can stand up to common laundry room spills like detergent or bleach. Although tiles are effective with just a dry lay, gluing down the tiles will yeild a more permanent solution. It's possible to clean these tiles with just a damp mop, hot water and a general household floor cleaner.

2. Max Tile Raised Flooring


Greatmats Max Tile basement plastic vinyl floor
In general, Max Tile Raised Flooring is an extremely popular flooring choice used for a wide range of purposes. These tiles are used for everything from dance floors to basketball courts to basement floor tiles. Max Tile Raised Flooring tiles are made with a polypropylene base and a 3 mm wood grain vinyl surface. These materials support the fact Max tiles are designed to withstand heavy use, which makes it a great fit for laundry room flooring. At the same time, these tiles have a sleek and lovely look to them.

Max Tile Raised Flooring are raised to allow airflow underneath. When high levels of water and moisture are present in a room, a raised floor can make all the difference. You won't need to worry about moisture becoming trapped underneath flooring, which can cause water damage and harmful bacteria to grow. Like many other modular tiles, Max tiles easily snap together and make for a simple laundry room floor installation.

Greatmats recommends raised laundry room flooring for rooms that are extra susceptible to humidity and moisture, like those in the basement. If this is the case, it may be in your best interest to choose Max Tile Raised Flooring or TileFlex flooring (see below) as your laundry room tile.

3. TileFlex

TileFlex tiles are another attractive option, as they provide the look of wood or slate without the exorbitant cost. TileFlex tiles come in more than 10 colors and styles. Like Max tiles, the base of these laundry room floor tiles are made of polypropelene plastic, while the surface finish is vinyl. TileFlex tiles are raised in order to prevent water from becoming trapped underneath flooring.

Fully waterproof and wear and tear resistant, the vinyl surface will never need refinishing. These tiles are designed to hold up against water, moisture and unforgiving usage. Tiles snap together with a tab and loop connecting system. They are easy to put together no matter the person power or size of the room.

Top 5 Workshop Flooring Features

What makes certain mats for floor tiles good for workshops?


By Julia Nass

Greatmats plastic tiles garage workshopWorkshops are spaces you should feel good about spending time in. With all the hours you spend working on a project, you deserve a place you feel productive, energized and at ease. Any great workshop starts with the floor. If you're creating a new workshop or revamping your old one, it's important to choose workshop flooring that supports your productivity and health as you create.

With all of the workshop flooring options on the market, support and safety are just the beginning of what you can hope for from your floor. Before you buy, it's key to know exactly what to look for. Read on to take a closer look at the priority features in workshop flooring.

1. Anti-fatigue

Greatmats anti fatigue rubber safety mats

Many people don't think about the way standing on hard concrete all day makes their body feel. Naturally, standing for hours on end can cause tiredness and soreness. However, the difference between standing on hard concrete and a cushioned mat is extreme. It's possible to feel tired after just a couple hours of standing or walking on hard concrete, while the right cushioned flooring can make you feel like you can stay vertical all day long.

This type of cushioned flooring is called anti-fatigue flooring. An anti-fatigue feature means the flooring has greater shock-absorption and cushion, which softens the impact on lower extremities. Anti-fatigue workshop flooring is designed to reduce stress on joints and muscles. Ultimately, it protects against and eases discomfort and soreness from your toes to your hips and back. If you plan to spend time on your feet in your workshop, choose shop flooring that will make it bearable - and maybe even comfortable!

2. Durability

Greatmats traction rubber safety mats workshop

Most workshop flooring sees intense wear and tear. It's not just shoes and feet that effect the floor. Equipment, tools, furniture, materials and other heavy loads contribute to the wear down of flooring. Further, spilled materials, dropped items and chemicals can also cause flooring to degrade. It's essential to choose workshop flooring that will withstand any and all usage.

Luckily, there are certain floors that are designed to be long lasting underneath the rigors of a workshop. Certain types of materials are better for durability than others. For example, heavy duty rubber, PVC and certain types of vinyl will last you longer than foam and many types of wood.

Look for products that have been tested to withstand a great amount of weight, heavy traffic, chemicals and stains. Read reviews that support those claims. Further, you can always make sure the company you're buying from ensures quality. For example, warranties are an easy signal that the company guarantees the product will be long lasting.

3. Ease of Cleaning


As durable as your shop floor may be, it's going to be a huge hassle without easy maintenance. Choose a floor that can be easily cleaned by sweeping or mopping with common household products. Shop flooring mats and tiles that are easily installed and uninstalled make maintenance a breeze as well. If you can easily transport your flooring, then it's no problem to take it outside to hose it off or power wash when in need of a deeper clean.

4. Safety

Safety is a clear and obvious priority, and slip-resistance is a large part of shop flooring safety. It's best to pick workshop flooring that has some kind of traction, whether it's textured tread or the product material itself (i.e. rubber). Non-skid surfaces protect you from slipping and falling, and they protect dropped materials from going flying across the floor.

Further, if you live in a damp climate, moisture awareness is part of safe workshop flooring. When moisture builds up in the floor, it can create potentially harmful mold and mildew. Depending on your climate, you may need to consider raised workshop flooring to allow air to flow underneath tiles, which helps prevent standing moisture.

5. Cost

As nice as it would be for cost to not have to factor into making a workshop flooring decision, it can't be overlooked. Luckily, there are simple ways to cut down on costs. For example, flooring rolls tend to be more economical than their tile counterparts. Further, if you're installing for a large space or multiple rooms, you may be able to find volume discount prices. Greatmats.com, for example, offers volume discount prices on many of its products.

Finally, installing shop flooring yourself saves big bucks. Choose easy, do-it-yourself workshop flooring in order to save on the cost of paying someone to install for you. The thought of installing flooring yourself may seem intimidating, but there are many products that are a breeze to install. Tiles with simple connecting systems, dry lay mats, or flooring rolls are all examples of workshop flooring that are hassle-free to install.

Hopefully, the above rundown can help guide you to choose a floor that meets all workshop needs. If you still feeling need more guidance, Greatmats' customer service exists to support you in making the best flooring decision.

Top 5 Home Gym Floors for Dance-Based Fitness

Dance Fitness Flooring at its Best

By Julia Nass

Why Choose a Home Dance Studio?


While some types of fitness focus on one aspect, such as muscle building or cardio, in particular, dance provides a broad spectrum of benefits. Dance based fitness provides a way to increase cardiovascular health, flexibility, structural strength, balance and coordination. Creating a home dance studio is the perfect way to practice dance in the comfort of one's own home while reaping all of the amazing fitness benefits of the sport. Plus, a home dance studio can be a place of solitude and peace, or it can be a center of fun for the whole family to move around in.

What Makes a Home Dance Studio?


The perfect home dance studio starts with the flooring. Dance can take a toll on the body, especially limbs and joints. The right flooring can act as a defense against injuries. At the same time, a floor is a defining piece of any room. The right dance floor can make all the difference in creating a space that supports creativity and freedom of movement.

So What Should I Look for in a Home Dance Floor?


It is extremely important to choose a dance floor that is anti-fatigue and shock absorbent as protection against dance-related injuries. At the same time, floors must be hard enough that movement is not affected by the floors' give. Home dance fitness flooring needs to be non-slip, yet there can't be so much traction that motion is deterred. As with any home gym floor, dance floors are susceptible to moisture from spilled water bottles, sweat and potential humidity build up (particularly in basements, etc). Further, they are subject to the natural wear that comes from feet and shoe impact and friction. Thus, home dance gym flooring should be water, wear, and scratch resistant.

What are the Top Home Dance Studio Flooring Options?


In consideration of the above factors, Greatmats offers the following top five home dance floor solutions.

Home Dance Floor Package Adagio Cushion

If you have your sights set on a ''Marley'' type of dance floor (a term that refers to a classic vinyl surface dance floor) The Adagio Cushion Home Dance Floor Package is a deal that's hard to beat.

Just mop with damp water, or use Rosco Heavy Duty floor cleaner to remove scuff marks from tap shoes. If you are interested in a Marley-style floor but don't need the underlayment, consider the next option.
