Ever heard of them?

I am sure you have.

So why are they the best?

O’ there are so many reasons why you might want to have them in your house.

When Carpet Tiles Stole The Show

Anytime it involves your floors, you shouldn’t limit yourself to just carpet, but try the newer carpet tiles instead.

Carpet tiles are available in an array of designs and a great choice of materials

as well if you did not know.

None of all these boring tiles for carpets like in the old days – there is a great variety now.

Such as:

  • bordered
  • geometric
  • contemporary
  • bamboo
  • grass reed

All these will give your floors a complete makeover and a great look as well.
When you go out to buy carpet tiles, you’ll need to think about where you plan to install them.

The tiles will vary in density as well as thickness and of course feel.

Carpet tiles with more thickness have a cushion so that it is soft on the surface, making them ideal for your home.

They will also provide a degree of thermal insulation as well.

Now that’s good…

The thinner types of tiles are best for offices, gyms, public places and other high-traffic areas.

All carpet tiles are easy to maintain and will last you for a long time.
This is a big plus!
All these tiles as I mentioned will come in a variety of materials and patterns these days.

If you choose, you can make your home a greenhouse by using bamboo carpet tiles.
Or you can even choose terracotta carpet tiles that will give your interior an earthly feel.

Now, this is great if you also want to have many indoor plants in a room.

You may just want to liven things up a bit or play down your floor, depending on the look you are going for.

Carpet tiles that are made from:

  • foam
  • vinal
  • rubber
  • linoleum

Are most probably best for kid’s rooms, office spaces, or other high-traffic areas.

Tiles as carpets will offer you several advantages when you compare them to wall-to-wall carpets.

They are easy to install and easy to transport, as you can install them without having to move any furniture!

Bet you never thought of that!

They are very durable as well and will last longer than most types of carpet even when they are used in high-traffic areas.

You can also unleash your creative side as well with carpet tiles.

Yes… You can mix and match different tiles, or use a colour for the border and even create a distinctive look using various patterns.

Unlike wall-to-wall carpet, you don’t need any professional help in case of tear, wear, or staining.

If one of the tiles become torn or stained, just replace that tile with a new one. And you can even try to wash the stained one outside to see if you can use it again.


It is so small that you can even put the carpet tile in the washing machine.

You can not go doing that with a full carpet, can you?

There are carpet tiles available to fit each and every taste, even budget, and yes… Furnishings style as well.

As they are less expensive, they will offer you the chance to experiment with your

They must be installed on hard surfaces, such as:

  • stone
  • cement
  • ceramic tile

The surface has to be smooth and clean, so the adhesives will last and your floor will have a well-finished look.

The carpet tiles will normally have cushion or padding already installed, which will reduce

the cost and extend the life of the carpet.
