Carpet tiles offer an interesting twist on traditional carpeting. Implemented mainly for their practicality and functionality, carpet tiles – also known as carpet squares – are a popular option in commercial buildings and certain rooms of Carmel homes.
What Are Carpet Tiles?
Carpet tiles are square pieces of carpet that traditionally come in 18-inch by 18-inch pieces but can vary in size. The backing of the carpet tile is reinforced, making it extra durable and therefore a perfect option for areas exposed to high amounts of foot traffic. The tiles are installed one by one rather than in large sheets, which is a benefit for two reasons. First, it means that any tile that becomes damaged or worn out can be individually replaced. Secondly, it means you can get creative with design and layout.
Carpet Tile in Carmel Office Buildings
Carpet tiles are a popular option in office buildings around the Carmel, Fishers, Zionsville, McCordsville, Westfield area because they are more durable and easier to maintain and keep clean than other flooring options. Also, because they are easier to transport than large carpet rolls, installation times are reduced. Most offices in the area go with simple designs to keep with a professional aesthetic, but there is no limit to how tiles can be arranged.
Carpet Tile in Carmel Homes
Carpet tiles are also a great option for your Carmel home, though they serve a different purpose than more traditional carpets options. For the same reason they are a great option in offices (high durability and easy to keep clean), they are great options for basements, playrooms, or any other room that will be exposed to children of any age. In these areas, it may be worth considering a more playful design approach, which can be achieved with bright colors or a non-traditional layout.
