Essential types of flooring explained: Carpet tiles
Carpet tiles are perhaps not the most glamorous of things to have adorning your floors but are nonetheless extremely popular. They are an alternative to a one-piece carpets and other flooring solutions such as quarry tiles and wooden floorboards. Carpet tiles are relatively cheap and come in a variety of sizes, colours and materials so there is certainly no shortage of choice when it comes to getting the right ones for you. With that in mind here is a brief introduction to carpet tiles:
In contrast to a normal carpet, carpet tiles are smaller square cuts of material which are laid side by side to cover a bare floor. They are quick and easy to install so are the weapon of choice for those who need flooring put in place on a budget and within a short amount of time.
Carpet tiles are more suited to business premises to domestic properties. They are the most common form of flooring in office buildings so the white collar workers among you are likely to recognise them from work. Carpet tiles are typically used in modular buildings dedicated to businesses like call centres but are also suitable for use in workshops and small factories where something a bit more forgiving underfoot and better at insulating against the cold is desirable over stone or cement floors. Carpet tiles are also ideal for commercial premises in the service industry.
Pubs and clubs often have tiled carpet floors and hotels are also frequent sources of demand. For many of these places carpet tiles have to be much more hard wearing and resilient compared to their domestic counterparts as they have to cope with the rigours that come with a much higher footfall.
