What Are Carpet Tiles & When Should You Use Them? , New York, New York

Carpets create a plush, comfortable feeling underfoot and a soft, inviting look. Many people worry that carpets stain easily. If you like the look of carpet but are put off by the idea of stains, try carpet tiles. They offer the comfort of traditional carpet, but are versatile and easy to clean. Here is a little more information about this flooring option. 

A Guide to Carpet Tiles

How Are Carpet Tiles Different From Traditional Carpet? 

Unlike standard carpet, which is installed in sheets the size of a room, carpet tiles come in pre-cut squares or rectangles that are glued or stapled down. Thanks to this individual installation method, carpet tiles are easy to remove and replace one by one, making them perfect for any area prone to accidental staining or wear. 

When Are Carpet Tiles a Better Idea? 

carpetCarpet tiles are typically used in places where the carpet needs to stay clean, but where it might be difficult to keep the flooring pristine. For instance, doctor’s offices, daycare centers, schools, and high-traffic businesses use carpet tiles, creating an attractive floor covering capable of withstanding the test of time. If an area becomes damaged, the affected tiles can be replaced instead of the entire carpet, which makes carpet tiles a relatively cost-effective solution. 

Carpet tiles also offer aesthetic benefits. Their colors, printed designs, and textures can be mixed and matched to create interesting patterns. They can be installed to create a checkerboard, striped, or mosaic effect, adding visual interest to any commercial space.
