If you are considering new flooring for your home or workplace, you may have come across carpet tiles. In the past, carpets were carpets and tiles were tiles. Today, however, lush carpets paired with the concept of tiling are to thank for the carpet tiles we know today!

So What are carpet tiles?

Carpet tiles are also known as square carpets or modular carpets. They are cut from wall to wall rolls. They can then be fitted together to make a carpet and they are available in various sizes. Sometimes they are available in different shapes too.

These carpet tiles offer superior flexibility in terms of design because you can take your pick from so many different designs. You could even combine more than one design to create a truly rich and dynamic environment.

Save time and money

Carpet tiles are small, which means that they are lightweight and easy to work with. Installing them does not take as much effort or time as carpet rolls. In addition, this type of carpeting will result in far less waste.

Yes, you will need to trim the edges here and there but it will not be as much as if you were to install conventional carpeting. This means that you require fewer square meters of carpet to cover the floor and this translates into great savings.

Installation options

For the most part, the best way to install carpet is to use the appropriate adhesive. This will ensure that each square will stay put and you won’t have corners lifting up. However, you can also lay them down without adhesive. In this case, double-sided tape should be used to hold them in place.

Carpet tiles should not be installed without any type of adhesive at all. They should also not be glued in place using the wrong type of glue. So, when you purchase your carpet tiles, buy the adhesive from your carpet supplier.


Not only are carpet tiles easy to install but, if one area of the floor is damaged, you don’t have to rip up your entire carpet. You can simply remove the one square that is no longer in perfect shape and replace it with a new one.

This is why so many property owners choose to invest in a few extra squares that they store safely in the event of such damage or stains. This ties in with the financial benefit mentioned above since you will not need to replace your flooring too often. You can simply replace the areas that are looking worse for wear.
