Modular carpet tiles, also known as carpet tiles, are carpet squares that can be fitted together to make up a carpeted space. Carpet tiles are generally available in 48x48, 50x50, 60x60, and 96x96 cm sizes. Carpet tiles can be used as an alternative to wall-to-wall carpets or be used to create separate spaces within a room.
How to Install Carpet Tiles
Carpet tiles are easy to install and require less manual labor than their broadloom counterpart. Carpet tiles come in pre-sized squares with their own integrated backing and base. The installation of these tiles looks and feels more like putting together a puzzle. Check out some common carpet tile pattern installations below.
Replacing Carpet Tiles
Modular carpet tiles are a durable & cost-effective flooring option for commercial interiors. Replacing damaged or stained carpet is as effortless as removing the individual tile to clean or replace. Storing extra carpet tiles requires minimal space and can easily be tucked away until needed. With traditional carpet options, the entire carpet has to be replaced if a section gets damaged, so Modular carpet tiles are a convenient economic alternative.
Modular Carpet Tile Design Ideas
Carpet tiles can replicate patterns in a unique and cost-effective design. Offering plenty of design flexibility it's possible to create a wide range of colors and patterns on carpet tiles that aren't possible with wall-to-wall carpets
Trending design patterns like herringbone & chevron can be emulated with carpet tiles.
Basketweave is another popular pattern with carpet tiles laid out in a weave or pattern resembling basketwork.
Business owners also have the ability to lay carpet tiles in a half-basketweave. The half-basketweave tile pattern is laid with two horizontal tiles butted against a single vertical tile. The positions of the three tiles in each grouping alternate from row to row.
The monolithic patterns can create the illusion of broadloom wall-to-wall carpet with minimum seams.
Brick carpet tile patterns are tiles that point in the same direction with the tile displaced by half a tile in the width direction.
For the Ashlar pattern, tiles all point in the same direction with the tile displaced by half a tile in the length direction.
The staggered pattern is similar to the Ashlar with carpet tiles spaced out in overlapping intervals.
Additionally, there is the option of installing the carpet tiles interlocking without regard to position and orientation.
