Carpet tiles are a floor covering that is often composed of a top layer or pile of woven textile fabric covered with a waterproof backing. The textiles are generally made of wool, although synthetic fibers including nylon, polyester or polypropylene have also been used in recent years as these fibers are more affordable than wool. Carpet tiles are available in different colors and designs. Some of them are very traditional while others have gained popularity with many homeowners looking for an easy to clean floor option.
Many homeowners find that carpet tiles are easy to install because the installation process involves a decorative pattern or border and then laying the tiles directly on the floor. The actual weaving of the fabric is usually done in the finishing of the weaving process itself. The finished product has a textured surface, which makes it more pleasing to the eye than a smooth, flat floor. The actual carpet tiles themselves are usually fairly resilient, but they can be damaged by high foot traffic or spills. There are two common carpet tile installation methods: flat woven and modular carpets. In flat woven installations, the actual carpet tiles are installed one by one on the ground and then the backing membrane is installed around them. In modular carpet installations, the tiles are pre-cut and a series of parallel strips of carpet are laid along the base, sides and corners.
The most attractive feature of carpet tiles is their soft and luxurious feel. This luxurious feeling is especially desirable in small rooms where you want to create a warm atmosphere. Carpet tiles are also easy to decorate with. By placing them on a wall, for example, you can make a small room more inviting. They add warmth to a wall, as they create a homely atmosphere. Carpet tiles are also popular in kitchen designs as they offer a lot of design versatility. It is also possible to buy a leftover lot of carpet tiles to give a new lease of life to a large surface, for example a dilapidated attic. Carpet tiles are available in a wide variety of colors and designs. Generally, they are made from natural fibers such as wool, cotton, jute or synthetic fabrics, and are constructed from tufts of very long and very fine yarn. Each yarn is cut into a varying number of narrow, evenly spaced slits. Carpet tiles are quite rough, so they are not prone to ripping or tearing, and this means that a high-quality piece can look good for many years to come.
