You name it and we offer it at Floors of St. Louis. Whatever type of flooring you need, you can get it from us, including carpet tiles. Carpet tiles are also referred to as carpet squares and are a great alternative to traditional rolls of carpeting. Many people hear carpet tiles and assume that it has to be easy to install themselves, but they don’t understand the other work that is involved in laying carpet tile. They usually experience problems later. This is why it serves them best to rely on the services of a professional carpeting service to handle the installation for them. We aren’t saying that you can’t do the job yourself, but what we are saying is that if you don’t want to have to revisit the same job again then get it done right the first time with the help of our professional flooring experts.
Types of Carpet Tile
We often install carpet tiles in schools, retail businesses, airports, and other commercial settings. Even though we primarily receive requests for carpet tiles installed in commercial environments, they are becoming more popular with homeowners. Carpet tiles are offered in different sizes, pile styles, fiber types, and manufactured types. What this means is that you are likely able to find tiles that mimic the very style of carpeting that you would generally find on a roll. The difference with carpeting tile and a roll is the backing on the tile. The backing options include fiberglass, vinyl, recycled vinyl, vinyl/fiberglass, woven polypropylene, and urethane. This is an important feature of your carpeting tiles because this determines its stability and the tile's ability to withstand moisture. The tiles are also offered in non-adhesive and adhesive. Some have peel-and-stick backing while others may require glue, which offers ease of installation.
Selecting Carpet Tiles
If you are trying to find the right type of carpet tiles for a room, consider the color and style. Keep the big picture in mind when choosing. Just looking at one tile might not be enough to give you a clear picture of how it would look in a room. However, imagining the floor with that same tile multiplied will give you a better idea of how the overall flooring will look. If you want to have a pattern created within your tiles then envisioning the entire floor with the exact design will enable you to get a better idea of what to expect. You don’t want the pattern to overwhelm the room so sometimes smaller is better. Remember that the size of the tile will greatly impact the overall look of the floor as a whole. Our experts can help you find what’s best for the room.
