Wood Grain Foam Mats: Common Questions— Answered

Wood Grain Foam Mats, sometimes referred to as faux hardwood, have become one of our most popular products – often topping as our weekly best-seller. Their versatile design makes it easy to see why they’ve become so popular, but there are a number of common questions about our wood grain foam mats that we want to take a moment to answer:

How is the hardwood finish achieved?

The wood grain appearance is a durable printed surface right on the EVA foam. We’ve gone through several different processes and finishes over the years and we think you’ll agree that the wood grain appearance on our current generation of mats is as durable as it is beautiful.

Can the wood grain surface be scratched?

Just like any other EVA foam mat in our catalog, the surface is soft and can be scratched, although it is usually not too prominent or noticeable. Another thing to keep in mind with any foam mat, is that it is susceptible to indentation from items like heavy furniture or even women’s high heeled shoes.

Do the wood grain “boards” line up from tile to tile?

This is a common question and as much as we’d love to be able to offer this kind of precision, the answer is no. The mats are produced in much larger batches than the 24-square-foot packs we offer for sale, and we are not able to guarantee that the “boards” in your wood grain pattern will line up exactly from tile to tile. But the good news is that this hardly matters—The overall effect of an assembled pack is still great, even if the boards don’t match perfectly.

We’ve gotten hundreds of positive feedback reviews about our wood grain foam mats from many different customers, and we’re confident you’ll love them too. Check out our selection.

Flooring that’s Ready to Expand with Your Business

For small business owners, watching your passions flourish into a promising career is as good as it gets. As small businesses find success, they are met with unique challenges and opportunities to define themselves and fill larger shoes. One such opportunity is working with the added physical space that comes with an expanding business, be it an efficient office or a decorative sales floor. We Sell Mats is proud to support National Shop Small Business Day (Nov. 30th) by offering modern, innovative solutions for growing businesses in the form of beautiful and reliable flooring.

New Space. New You.

Whether your small business is expanding into its first location or a larger one, it is essential to establish the brand within that space. By housing your business in a place that aligns with the aesthetic appeal and values of your company, you have greater potential to translate your motivation to your colleagues, and your dedication to your customers. EVA foam mats are perfect for the job because they come in several unique colors and textures which makes accommodating any business’ identity a breeze.

Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated sleek look or old rural charm, we offer carpet and wood grain tiles that are cost-effective and easy to install.

Build Your Business Beyond Your Space

Thinking about knocking out some walls? Is the new location only short term? Compared to traditional flooring which needs professional installation and is far too impractical to transport to a new space, our interlocking foam tiles are easy to add to when expanding extra space and are just as easy to remove when heading to your new business location.

As exciting as it may be, expansion can make or break a small business, so it is vital that a growing company’s work environment is productive for employees and comfortable for the consumer. We Sell Mats is confident in our flooring options and the potential they have in the hands of capable small business owners. We encourage everyone to make a difference in their community by shopping small on Saturday, November 30th.

Trade Show and Retail Flooring

Floors don’t stand out. They’re often intentionally understated. They’re kind of like shelves, intended only to hold, support, or display something else. And that’s okay. Understated can be good. It certainly holds sway in the world of attire: “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress. Dress impeccably and they remember the woman. In Coco Chanel’s world, an understated elegance guaranteed a lasting, positive, and productive impression. We like to think of our wood grain and carpet top mats as the impeccable flooring solution for the retail and trade show worlds. Continue reading “Trade Show and Retail Flooring”

Every retailer knows that trade shows are essential. You learn, you check out the competition, you make contacts, and hopefully, you gain new customers. One thing that often happens at trade shows that you don’t usually plan for is the aching back and sore feet that come with standing on a concrete floor all day long.  Continue reading “Upping the Ante at Trade Shows”

Kicking the Room Up a Notch

You’d like to do something to make the living or family room look a little nicer. Maybe some new furniture, a paint job, the floors. Hmm. The floors. Now that would really change the look, wouldn’t it? What do you think – hardwood? A plush carpeting? Ceramic tile? If you’re considering a small, say 12×12 space, it could cost you upwards of $1000 to do any of these options. But for a mere $165, you could install your own wood grain foam mat flooring system and be enjoying the comfort and warmth of faux wood grain flooring in a matter of a few hours.  Continue reading “Kicking the Room Up a Notch”
