If you’re redecorating your home, you might never have thought about using carpet tiles rather than rolled carpet. Some people are unaware that carpet tiles even exist, and many struggle to see the difference between carpet tiles and your traditional rolled carpet. Here at Floormaker, we would argue that carpet tiles are superior to rolled carpet in a number of ways, so let us compare the two and show you why.
Rolled carpet is the traditional option when carpeting your home. You pay by how much you use – the larger your room, the more you’ll have to buy – and the carpet itself can come in a variety of colours, patterns and textures to provide you with the desired finish in your home. One problem with rolled carpet is that if you damage a section of the carpet, the entire carpet will need to come up and be replaced, which can be pretty costly if your room has a large surface area. The installation of rolled carpet is also relatively complex, and the chances are that you’d have to pay for someone to correctly install your carpet, as well as the cost of the carpet itself.
Carpet tiles come in squares of varying sizes, depending on where you purchase them from. You can purchase them on Floormaker, for example, by entering the size of your room in metres or feet, and letting the website calculate the quantity of tiles required (and, consequently, the cost). Clever, eh? One of the best things about carpet tiles is that, unlike rolled carpet, they are easy to replace. If you stain or damage a section of the carpet, you can simply replace that individual tile rather than re-carpeting the entire room. They are available in a variety of designs, styles and textures, and are very easy to install. They are extremely convenient if you decide to change your mind and move the carpet to another room of the house. Floormaker’s carpet tiles are hard-wearing, resilient and easy to clean, ensuring that these easy-to-install tiles are a worthy investment.
So there you have it. Carpet tiles vs. rolled carpet, decided within one handy blog post. Though we don’t like to be biased, we think it’s pretty clear who wins the battle, especially when you look at our gorgeous range of floor tile colours. Easy to install, easy to maintain, easy to move and easier on the bank balance; there can only be one winner in the end, surely?
