carpet tiles white bear lakeCarpet tiles are quite common in commercial spaces. You’ve encountered them in the office, in airports, and in retail store dressing rooms. For this reason, carpet tile may not be the first thing you think of when trying to decide on new flooring for your White Bear Lake home. However, there are a number of practical residential uses for carpet tiles, and here at Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake, we can help you pick out the right type for your family. Below are three ways carpet tiles could become an essential part of your home.


Carpet tiles are ideal for areas that demand both comfort and durability. Thanks to their design, a single carpet tile can be swapped out if it gets damaged or stained unlike broadloom carpet, where the entire floor would need to be replaced. This type of carpet is also designed to be easily cleaned, and often comes stain-proofed. This makes carpet tiles great for a child’s play area or bedroom, where arts-and-crafts mishaps or a variety of accidents could be common. Carpet tile does not compromise comfort either; it provides an essential cushion and warmth, making it a great choice for a playroom.

Workout Room

If you have a home gym or workout room, then you know the importance of having a durable floor that can withstand a dropped dumbbell. Carpet tiles can do just that. They can bear heavy equipment unlike hardwood or laminate, both of which are more susceptible to dents and scratching. In the case of damage, you won’t have to worry about removing all of your heavy gym equipment to replace your entire floor, since single tiles can be replaced.

Living Room

Carpet tiles can serve a unique purpose in your living room. While you might not need them for their durability in this room, you can use them to create unique designs and patterns that are unobtainable with broadloom carpet. By selecting a few different colors and patterns of carpet tiles, you can create a living room carpet that is not only comfortable but also unlike any other. Use the tiles to create an intricate pattern, or combine colors to make a statement. You’ll have the added bonus of being able to change the pattern around in the future if a bit of carpet gets stained or you simply want a new look.
