Carpet tiles, also known as carpet squares, are a type of flooring which can be used as an alternative to the more common rolled carpet, and are manufactured in both non-adhesive and/or adhesive styles. They are formed from an upper layer of pile attached to a backing and are produced in a variety of sizes, materials, fibres, patterns and colours. When choosing tiles, it is important to consider the overall design scheme and the requirements of the finished floor, as well as the size and durability of the tiles required.

Some of the benefits of using carpet tiles include:

  1. They can be easier to install than rolled carpet.
  2. They can be installed over many floor types, including timber and concrete.
  3. Individual tiles can be removed and replaced for cleaning or if they get damaged.
  4. Creative patterned design scan be achieved.
  5. Many tiles are manufactured with good stain resistant properties.
  6. Minimizes wastage

Some of the drawbacks of using carpet tiles include:

  1. The seams of the tiles are more visible than rolled carpet and so require careful installation to avoid an uneven appearance.
  2. They can have a ‘corporate’ or ‘municipal’ feel.
  3. They can become unstuck, and curling or lifting at edges can create a trip hazard.
  4. They can make access to under-floor services more difficult a trip hazard
  5. They can be more expensive than rolled carpet but this depends of the type of materials and backing used.
