Workout Mat/Floor

Hi guys, perhaps someone can help me out here. My TV/Kinect is setup in my living room, in which I have laminate. Not very ideal for Kinect so far. Dance Central works fine but during Your Shape's heavy movement excercises, laminate is quite tricky. It doesn't feel right and I'm probably causing wear/tear. UFC is a step further.. I can't imagine doing sit-ups on a wooden-line floor. I've looked around for fitness mats but the sizes are all sketchy, most being about 180cm*40cm with a thickness of 2cm. That means you have a very small area to work on, only useful for lying down. In the UFC trailer here:
They use some other round workout mat. Does anyone know what that's called? Looks more like a rug..

Anyway, does anyone have some experience in workouts on laminate, or can you recommend a good product that's wide/thick enough to do various excercises on? I can't imagine being the only one with this issue. I used carpet before in my PC-room where I had my kinect, and although YourShape was far better on it, you still don't want to be doing situps on that floor.

Search Yoga mats, you'll get more hits.

But yeah, that one is just a regular shag rug.
