Carpet Tiles - For a Trendy, Modern Look!

If you're looking for trendy flooring that is easy to maintain, carpet tiles may be just what you're looking for!

Carpet tiles have been very popular in businesses, but they have also found their way into the homes of those who desire stylish and modern, yet practical flooring.

They are perfect for high traffic areas, or areas in which people bring food or beverages. This is the main reason they are so commonly seen in college campuses and restaurants. Pet owners and families with children also find carpet tiles to be a low maintenance option for their homes. So, what makes carpet tiles so great?


Benefits of Carpet Tiles

Carpet tiles are very pet and child-friendly! They are easy to clean, and if a tile is ruined, you are able to replace just one tile instead of the whole floor! If need be, you can remove a tile to rinse it with water, as well. Carpet tiles can also be useful for uniquely shaped rooms. If you have a room that has an awkward layout, carpet tiles are super easy to cut down to fit around any shape.

The ease of installation is another reason many people have opted for carpet tiles. It won't cost you much to have an installer put these in your home or business. Or if you feel like taking on a project, chances are you could successfully install these yourself! The benefit here is that they don't require professional fitting like regular carpet does.

Carpet tiles are also extremely versatile. If you are going for a more laid-back type of space, or something neutral for your home, you can go with a solid colored tile or a very simple pattern. If you want to spice it up a bit, or go for something really modern and trendy, you can go with a fun pattern or funky colors. There's tons of different design styles when it comes to carpet tiles, so they really can fit the taste of anyone.

Another added bonus: carpet tiles are easy to take with you when you move. This is especially great for renters!

Here are some of the different styles carpet tiles can bring to a space:
  1. Neutral Colors - Often times when people think of carpet tiles, they picture restaurants, universities, and other businesses. The uniquely designed carpet tiles you see in these types of businesses are usually not what one would want in their home. What many don't know, is that carpet tiles also come in neutral colors and simple patterns, which may make them more appealing to certain homeowners.
  2. Fun Patterns - Don't be fooled by some of the more neutral designs, though; carpet tiles can also be used to create super fun, unique patterns. The easy cut and install of this product allows for almost any pattern you can imagine.
  3. Funky Color Pops - Carpet tiles can be used to create an endless variety of design and color. If you want to spice up your space, you could consider using carpet tiles to add a fun color pop into the pattern of your floor.
