What is Carpet Tile?
Exactly as it sounds, carpet tile is simply flooring made up of smaller shaped pieces of carpet that are fit together to form a whole floor. This differs from wall-to-wall, or broadloom, carpet that is rolled out in one or two large pieces across an entire room. As a result, carpet tile will have more seam lines than broadloom carpet, but it also tends to provide a greater level of customization than other forms of flooring.
Customize Your Space
Carpet tiles are ideal for adding an element of design and personality to your living room. Because each tile can be uniquely colored and patterned, there are an endless number of ways you can combine these tiles to design a floor that perfectly fits your home. Carpet tiles are also great when placed in living rooms that adjoin areas with hardwood floors, as they bring different textures and visual interest into the space.
If you have a room that has a weird angle to it, carpet tiles can be cut to fit the space. This will give you greater freedom in choosing a design for your flooring and makes carpet tile a versatile option for your living room floors.
Due to the large number of carpet and backing materials available, carpet tiles can be selected to promote comfort and mitigate the amount of necessary maintenance. This is especially handy in a living room where you want to feel comfortable but also may be contending with spilled food and drink. By selecting a cushioned backing for your tiles you’ll not only provide a soft surface on which to walk but will also keep your carpet looking new as the backing helps to stand up to foot traffic that would otherwise tamp down your carpet.
These are just a few of the many benefits of carpet tile. If you are ready to start a new flooring project, then give Floor Coverings International Northshore NOLA a call.
