Carpet tiles (also known as carpet squares) are a unique twist on wall-to-wall carpeting that comes with many different benefits. They are often used in commercial or retail spaces but are becoming more popular with homeowners in the greater Mahwah, Paramus, Wayne, and North Jersey areas. The experts at Floor Coverings International North Jersey share everything you need to know about carpet tiles below.
Like wall-to-wall carpet, carpet tiles are available in a variety of different fibers, colors, patterns, and more. Tiles give you the opportunity to create a look that is unique to your home! You can mix different textures, colors, patterns, and more to create a fun pattern or design. Creating a checkered pattern of different colors is a fun option for the kid’s playing area, while a gray to white ombre look brings style to a bedroom.
One of the biggest benefits of carpet tiles is the fact that they can be easily removed. We suggest buying a few extra tiles when you get your carpet installed. If damage occurs that cannot be fixed, all you have to do is remove the old tile and replace it with a new one. Like all carpet, it can be pretreated with stain resistance to make cleaning up spills and messes that much easier. This is a particularly good idea for homes with kids and/or pets.
Where to Install Carpet Tiles
Carpet tiles work great in almost any room of the house, except those with high volumes of moisture such as the kitchen or bathroom. However, waterproof carpet options are available. Carpet tiles are also a great option for homeowners who want a soft flooring option in their basement. Since basements are more prone to flooding, tiles give you the option to peel up the flooring and let them dry should this ever happen.
