Why carpet tiles may be for you

Carpet tiles are just broadloom, usually in 18-inch or 24-inch squares. While they're often used in hotels and offices today, they're as popular in the home, where they are available in fun, bright colors and patterns that can be mixed and matched to create distinctive styles.

Whether you want residential or commercial carpet tiles, be sure to browse our inventory. Some can be used outdoors for patios and gazebos and come with an easy-peel and stick application that can be placed over almost any subfloor, including concrete.

Benefits of carpet squares

Carpet squares offer the same warmth and comfort as any carpeting and come in the same large assortment of fibers. They also have some additional advantages, though. While all rugs provide sound insulation, carpet tiles are layered and somewhat more dense, making them especially ideal for spaces that get pretty noisy, such as family or game rooms, kids’ play areas, call centers, and bars. That density also makes them a little more resistant to water and, when they do get damaged, you don't need to replace the entire surface, only the affected carpet squares.

The many types of fibers

As we mentioned, there's a large assortment of fibers to address every need, from durability to stain resistance. They include:

1. Nylon is known for strength, resiliency, and good stain resistance. This is ideal for ultra-busy spaces where strength is a must.

2. Polyester is non-absorbent, so it offers superior stain resistance. Polyester is, however, slightly less resilient than nylon so that it may be best for moderately trafficked rooms. 

3. Olefin (polypropylene) is a budget-friendly, non-absorbent, highly stain-resistant fiber.

4. Triexta, which is relatively new to the market, has already established a solid reputation for strength and permanent stain resistance built into the fiber. This, too, is a good option for heavily trafficked areas.

5. Wool is natural, durable, and fire-resistant. It is somewhat absorbent, so stains need to be wiped immediately.
