Unique Retro Kitchen Floor Mats for Impressive Look
Besides the backing, the thickness of the mat is the most important factor. Because the hard surface mats rest on a solid platform, they are manufactured in one thickness. Carpet, however, comes in a number of thicknesses and may be cushioned with padding underneath. Thus, carpeted surface mats are offered in 4 thicknesses: economy (100 mil or 1/10”), regular (125 mil or 1/8”), standard (~145 mil or 1/7”) and premium (200 mil or 1/5”). The thicker the mat the flatter it will lay and the less it will bow, which makes it easier to roll on. Additionally, thicker mats will help prevent you from moving since it will stay more level.
