Playroom Flooring


A playroom should be safe, functional, and fun, but hardwood and tile are just too hard for crawling kids, and carpet is sure to be covered in marker drawings and water color paints before your child hits kindergarten. These flooring ideas will protect your child and your playroom floors.

Interlocking Foam Mats

Foam mats are a popular flooring option for playrooms, because they tick several boxes. They’re safe for rowdy kids, they protect carpet and hardwood, they’re affordable, and they’re colorful and fun—some even double as puzzles and learning tools.

Classic interlocking foam mats come in a variety of colors, like this puzzle exercise play mat. Other interlocking mats feature alphabet and number designs, and double as a learning tool. Not a fan of all the primary colors? Try a hardwood style foam mat for a seamless look in the playroom.
