Traditionally, carpet tile has been considered a commercial flooring option. The ease and affordability of changing out individual tiles as they become damaged appeals to airports, schools, airports and other high-traffic organizations. Word is spreading, however, and homeowners are also beginning to consider this flexible flooring option given its additional benefits:
Ease of Installation
Can be installed in small areas or temporarily – you can even work around, or lift the furniture rather than emptying the whole room.
Carpet tiles are made with a stronger backing and in most cases an underlayment in not required. Also, there is generally less material waste on projects with awkward shaped rooms and areas not consistent with the 12′ module of rolled goods. All of this combined with the reality that carpet tile is easier to install and you may actually be saving money.
Any damage or spills can be resolved by replacing one tile rather than the entire floor, which is reassuring and overall, means carpet tiles are definitely a cost effective flooring option.
Ease of Maintenance
Regular vacuuming is the best way to deal with everyday dust and dirt. For inevitable spills and accidents it’s best to treat the area as promptly as possible.
Designers and clients are able to blend patterns and colors to achieve a larger scale pattern or design that is almost impossible to get with rolled goods.
