In the greater North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby, Whistler area, carpet tiles (also known as carpet squares) are an interesting twist on carpeting. Carpet tiles are square pieces of carpet that fit together to form a carpeted floor. Some carpet tiles feature fun and interesting patterns that, when carefully positioned, create unique designs suited to your own style.
The standard size is 18-inch by 18-inch squares, but other sizes are available. Carpet tiles can be installed in your home or office to create a great, and durable, look. Office entryways, entire offices, retail locations, basements, playrooms — the possibilities are endless.
The backing of carpet tiles make them a very durable flooring choice, perfect for high-traffic areas. In addition, if damage or wear does occur in the carpet, repair is very convenient because the particular carpet tile can be removed and replaced.
Modular carpet tiles have a number of advantages over wall-to-wall carpeting including:
- Carpet tiles give you a lot of design flexibility, with the ability to create dynamic looks and make rooms feel bigger and brighter
- Easier repair – if damage or wear occurs, just replace the carpet square!
- Provide flexibility when carpeting rooms with awkward shapes
- Carpet tiles are easier to transport to the install location than large carpet rolls. This can really factor into installs in large commercial office buildings for example.
Carpet tiles are a different kind of look than wall-to-wall carpeting. Carpet tiles do lack the lush feel and comfort of wall-to-wall carpeting, so don’t make sense for every design goal or room.
During installation, you need to ensure that seams between tiles are handled very carefully to get the perfect seamless look. With experienced installers, your carpet tiles will give you durability and enjoyment for years to come.
