Brampton CarpetIn the greater Burlington and Oakville areas, carpet tiles (also known as carpet squares) are an interesting twist on carpeting. Carpet tiles are square pieces of carpet that fit together to form a carpeted floor. Some carpet tiles feature fun and interesting patterns that, when carefully positioned, create unique designs suited to your own style.

The standard size is 18-inch by 18-inch squares, but other sizes are available as well. Carpet tiles can be installed in your Oakville home or office to create a fun and durable look. Office entryways, entire offices, retail locations, basements, playrooms — the possibilities are endless.

The backing of carpet tiles is what makes them a very durable flooring choice, perfect for high-traffic areas. In addition, if damage or wear does occur, repair is very convenient because the particular carpet tile can be removed and replaced.

Benefits of Carpet Tiles Compared to Wall-to-Wall Carpeting

  • Carpet tiles give you a lot of design flexibility, with the ability to create dynamic looks and make rooms feel bigger and brighter. You can mix different patterns, sizes, or colors of carpet squares.
  • They are easier to repair because if damage or wear occurs, you just have to replace the carpet square!
  • They provide flexibility when carpeting rooms with awkward shapes.
  • Carpet tiles are easier to transport to the install location than large carpet rolls. This can really factor into installs in large commercial office buildings for example.

Your Oakville Carpet Experts

Carpet tiles are a different kind of look than wall-to-wall carpeting. They do lack the lush feel and comfort of wall-to-wall carpeting, so carpet tiles don’t always make sense for every design goal or room. During installation, you need to ensure that seams between tiles are handled very carefully to get the perfect seamless look. With experienced installers, your carpet tiles will give you durability and enjoyment for years to come.
