Carpet Tiles and Carpet Squares at Floor Coverings International in Kansas City, MO
When most people think of carpeting in the home, they think of wall-to-wall carpeting. There’s another type of carpeting, however, that’s most commonly found in offices and other public buildings that are known as carpet tiles (or carpet squares).
Over the last few years, this has become an increasingly popular option for residential use. Here are a few things you should know about this highly versatile and attractive alternative.
Leading providers of carpet tiles and squares in Kansas City, MO, and surrounding areas
At Floor Coverings International of Kansas City, MO, we’ve been upgrading homes all over the community with carpet tiles. While carpet tiles are still a type of carpeting, they don’t arrive at your home in one piece like wall-to-wall carpeting. Carpet tiles are tiles that are fit together to cover the floor, often by either gluing them into place or adhering them in a peel-and-stick fashion. This process makes repairing your carpet a snap — just remove and replace the damaged tiles!
Carpet tiles are usually composed of short, tight fibers that are looped and stitched back into the tile. This makes them very suitable for heavy foot traffic, which is why they’re so popular in public spaces. Residential carpet tiles are often constructed in cut-pile styles, so you can take advantage of the same durability for your home, but with versions that are as soft and attractive as traditional carpeting.
To keep up with the increased demand for residential carpet tiles, manufacturers are providing consumers with a greater variety of looks and colors than ever before. Also, because carpet tiles can be assembled in any fashion you like, creative home decorators are creating their own designs ranging from chevron and herringbone to plaid.
