Why Interlocking Flooring Is Better Than Foam Playroom Tiles

Chances are that if you have kids, you have a designated area of your home just for their toys. Having a playroom serves a great purpose when trying to consolidate potential messes. That being said, the room not only needs to be appealing but functional for the kiddos. However, one of the most significant fallback purchases of residential interlocking flooring for a playroom is the good old interlocking foam ABC tiles. 

While this flooring provides adequate padding, is somewhat educational, and comes in various eye-appealing colors, our team at SelecTech can think of a few reasons why it’s time to ditch the foam. 

Here are a few (of many) reasons why it’s time to upgrade to interlocking residential flooring for your kid’s playroom.



It’s a fact; kids can be destructive. Thus, if you purchase foam tiles, you may want to consider how much you may invest in them. Easily damaged, foam flooring can be an appealing chew toy for teething babies and pets alike. Further, the material makes for the perfect hole-punching pastime, an ideal amusement for bored kiddos. However, with a bit higher up-front cost, you could have tiles with a durable top layer built to withstand damage – for many years to come.



Whenever we think about foam tiles, we are often greeted by the image of fluorescent or bold primary colors. Although this may be fun for the little ones, these mats can easily overpower any room. Lucky for you, Place N’ Go™ has several attractive finishes that fit seamlessly with any décor. Why compromise the elegance of your home when you can have an appealing and functional playroom flooring system?

Time Saver

Though foam tiles “lock together” with their puzzle-styled edges, the flexible and soft foam quickly allows for these tiles to pull apart. Further, many of them will incorporate letters and numbers, encouraging children to tear them apart. While the hope of skill building is there, we, parents, will stand on the sideline, hoping the pieces make it back together. With days already filled to the brim, piecing together flooring after the kids go to bed is not something many people want on their list. Instead, Place N’ Go™ provides a patented, interlocking system without worrying about an added chore.



Because accidents happen, our interlocking system allows tiles to be removed and reinstalled quickly. Even better, the entire floor doesn’t need to be disrupted. Place N’ Go™ allows the homeowner to easily replace one tile without the headache of clearing out an entire room.
