Carpet tiles are also known as carpet squares or modular carpet. They are a great alternative to the more common rolled carpets.
They are easier to install and can be installed on different floor types. If your carpet gets stained or damaged, you can easily replace one tile without having to redo your entire flooring.
Carpet tiles come piece by piece, so you have plenty of room to get creative with how your floor will look. You are free to mix and match carpet tiles to create your own design. If you are using rolled carpets, having a custom design can cost you heaps more.
They are easy to clean and just like regular carpets, you can vacuum them as you usually do. Most carpet tiles are low pile, looped, and very tight, so they trap less dirt. This design also means that they can withstand high foot traffic. Some carpet tiles can also absorb sound, which makes it suitable for public spaces like libraries, galleries, museums, and offices.
Compared to a rolled carpet, there is less waste when you trim tiled carpets to fit the nooks and crannies of your space. Thanks to their compact size, it’s easier to transport carpet tiles than a rolled carpet.
If you are planning on a DIY home improvement project, carpet tiles are a great way to spruce up your rooms without breaking the bank or your back. They are very easy to install and require minimal tools to complete the installation.
