Prepare to be Floored: Carpet Tiles

Flooded with flooring choices? Looking for that perfect rug? Trying to cover up an ugly rental floor? Need a heavy-duty option for high-traffic areas?

The perfect solution: carpet tiles.

Yes, they’re just what they sound like. Carpet tiles are literally individual pieces of carpet that can be laid in endless configurations to customize the flooring in any room. Choose a shape, pattern, color, and layout to express your style without being limited by existing flooring choices.

Carpet tiles are easy to replace when they’re worn out; individual tiles may be removed, replaced, or even washed when stained, without having to replace or clean the entire carpet (ideal for high-traffic areas like kids’ rooms, mudrooms, and entries). You can take them with you when you move. They’re eco-friendly (some companies even allow you to recycle them when you’re done!). And they’re ending the hunt for that perfect rug; simply choose the colors and patterns that you want to complement your existing decor perfectly.

Sounds too good to be true? It’s not. The downsides are just a possibly higher cost (depending on the tile) and the risk of visible seams (which may be avoided with proper laying). Check these out and fall in love with this versatile flooring option!
