Carpet offers benefits like comfort, sound absorption, and style. However, many Medford homeowners avoid carpet for fear of difficult cleaning and maintenance. This is a valid concern, since pets, kids, food, and water don’t always play well with wall-to-wall carpeting. Fortunately, there’s a solution: carpet tiles! Carpet tiles offer all the benefits of normal carpet, but with significantly easier maintenance.
Ideal for kids’ rooms, craft rooms, and commercial spaces, carpet tiles are the perfect compromise between comfort and utility. Interested in carpet tiles for your home or business? Here are some things to know, courtesy of our experts at Floor Coverings International Klamath Falls:
About Carpet Tiles
- Looking for a quick and easy install? Carpet tiles can often be installed over other types of flooring, like tile and hardwood, which means less time, money, and mess for you to worry about.
- Carpet tiles are cheap and simple to replace if necessary. If part of your carpet is stained or damaged, save money by switching out the damaged tiles rather than the entire carpet.
- Sure, you can choose carpet tiles that are all the same color or pattern, but one of the advantages to carpet tiles is that you can use them to create custom designs. Consider alternating different tiles to create stripes, diamond shapes, and other abstract patterns.
- Be aware that you will probably notice the seams between carpet tiles. If the tiles are not carefully installed, the seams will be even more noticeable.
- Depending on the style you choose, carpet tiles may be more expensive than traditional carpet rolls. However, if you expect that your carpet may be damaged later on, carpet tiles will save you money in the long run since they are easier to replace.
- Over time, carpet tiles can tend to shrink, curl, or buckle. These problems are not only visually distracting, but can create tripping hazards. Luckily, it’s easy to replace damaged tiles as necessary.
