Where are Carpet Tiles Used?


Carpet tiles find frequent use in offices, especially on raised access floors, due to their easy removal, enabling access beneath the panels for electrical work. They are also popular in educational settings, providing durability and allowing for creative designs with vibrant colours. In addition, carpet tiles are commonly employed in various other commercial spaces, including hotels, residential communal areas, and retail spaces, owing to their versatility and practicality.



Contemporary carpet tiles have evolved significantly, offering a wide array of features and benefits. Depending on the range, they can provide sound reduction properties, allowing for a quieter environment. Bespoke designs allow for personalised and unique flooring solutions. Some carpet tiles are engineered to be stain-resistant, making them easy to clean and maintain. Additionally, there are carbon-neutral options available, contributing to environmental sustainability. Furthermore, many carpet tile manufacturers now offer opportunities to recycle the tiles at the end of their lifecycle, promoting eco-friendly practices and reducing environmental impact.

FAQ’s for Carpet Tiles:

Will the joins between each carpet tile show?

It’s not possible to guarantee that joins won’t show, a phenomenon also known as ‘broadlooming.’ However, with precise installation, joins can become less noticeable over time due to wear and use. In some cases, especially with correct fitting, joins can even become nearly invisible.

Why the difference in cost between different carpet ranges?

The variance in cost between different carpet tile ranges stems from their diverse specifications and designs. Some tiles have plain patterns, while others feature intricate designs. Additionally, differences in pile weights and density impact the tile’s durability. Heavy contract carpet tiles typically use nylon for the pile, enhancing their durability and longevity.

Are carpet tiles easy to clean?

Yes, carpet tiles are relatively easy to clean. They can be vacuumed to remove dirt and debris. Many carpet tiles are made with solution-dyed nylon, making them resistant to colour fading. This feature allows for spot cleaning with cleaning solutions without risking colour removal, enhancing their ease of maintenance.
