What Are Carpet Tiles?
As the name implies, carpet tiles are pieces of carpet that fit together to form a fully carpeted floor. Some of these carpet tiles feature fun, colorful patterns that, when positioned correctly, create interesting designs that add style to your space. Most carpet tiles come with an adhesive backing, and are available in 18-inch by 18-inch or 2-ft by 2-ft squares.
Carpet tiles can be cut to fit unique spaces in your home. They can be installed in basements, offices, playrooms, bedrooms, or even around pools. It’s best to have a professional help with the cutting process to ensure that they are cut correctly.
During installation tiles are placed one-by-one, which makes installation relatively easy. Some installation methods even allow for the tiles to be lifted and replaced or repositioned. This makes it easy to remove stained or damaged portions of your floor, or to refresh decor with a new carpet tile pattern.
Materials & Styles
As we mentioned, there are carpet tile designs that emphasize each tile, but you can also choose a solid color. If this is the style you prefer, your finished carpet will look just like a solid carpet floor. You can also choose from a variety of materials and pile options. Lastly, there are various types of backing available, including woven polypropylene, vinyl back, urethane back, recycled vinyl back, fiberglass and vinyl with fiberglass.
