Carpet tile installation cost guide

Carpet tile installation cos

Carpet tiles are often chosen as a floor covering because of their durability and appearance. Available in a range of colours of varying quality, the underlay is already part of the carpet tile. And they’re generally stuck down using adhesive or come as a peel and stick tile.

The real edge carpet tiles have over traditional wall-to-wall carpeting is that it’s effortless to replace tiles when they become damaged or worn rather than replacing your existing carpet with a whole new one. In which case, carpet tiles are great for children’s bedrooms, in rooms that pets spend a lot of time in, and in heavy traffic rooms.

What’s more, carpet tiles require zero adhesives, making them ideal to place in rooms that need a quick floor cover-up. Even better, there’s absolutely no installation mess.
