One of the first questions you might have when visiting lotsofcarpet.com is "What are carpet tiles?" and "How do I install them?"
Carpet tiles, also known as carpet squares, come in many different colors and pattern designs. These can range from solid colors, all the way to the wild prints typical of a casino floor. These also come in many different sizes: 18 inches, 20 inches, 24 inches, 36 inches, and 40 inches.
One of the advantages of carpet tiles is that there's already a backing in place, and each fiber of the carpet tile is fusion bonded into the backing, and this prevents the fibers from unraveling. Unlike regular carpet that comes on rolls, there is no padding to lay down or install on your floor under the carpet. Everything is already done for you.
