I LOVE these mats! We bought two to replace an 8'x10' rug in our living room. As you can see, the mats are smaller than the carpet, but I don't think it looks bad. We have a 17 month old, a 3 month old, and a cat who likes to urinate on rugs, so these mats were the perfect solution! They offer much more padding than the previous rug, are SO much easier to keep clean, and unlike the puzzle play mats, liquids don't fall through the cracks (i.e. no more milk crusted on my hardwoods!).
One word of warning - my husband set the vacuum on one of the mats (he was using the attachment to vacuum the couch cushions), and it did cause some damage :( It was our fault, though, since we knew that vacuum had damaged the colorful alphabet puzzle play mat we have in the play room. Our iRobot Roomba works just fine on them, though. The great thing is that because they're reversible, I just flipped it over - problem solved!!!
To the maker of the mats, please offer them in larger sizes! These are so much better than area rugs!
