You heard us right. Carpet tiles can last longer than wall-to-wall carpet. Why? Well, if one gets stained or damaged, it’s only one tile you need to replace, rather than an entire floor. They’re also easy to clean—just a simple vacuum usually does the trick. Plus, carpet tiles are low pile, so they won’t track as much dirt and debris as a regular carpet. If you want to save money on a style that's just as sturdy, yet more affordable than hardwood floors, opt for moisture-resistant, kid proof carpet tiles for your basement.
Whether you’re lifting weights, your kids are playing, or the pets are running wild, rely on the oops proof performance of carpet tiles. Because of the tufted tight loops, they can withstand almost anything. Most have enhanced stain protection as well, so you can rely on these in high-traffic, accident-prone areas.
Wall-to-wall carpet works well when you have a 12’ or 15’ room. But, if you have a uniquely shaped space or an awkward layout, you’ll need to add carpet seams to properly fill the area. And with looped carpet, those seams are often visible. But with carpet tiles, you can fill the room as you please, with less waste—and no unattractive carpet seams. Carpet tiles are perfect for rooms with complex shapes, filling the space with ease.
Low-pile carpet tiles are generally flatter, meaning they won’t trap as much dirt, dust particles, pet hair, or other debris. Plus, they’re easy to clean, allowing for better indoor air quality than traditional carpet. Vacuuming regularly is all it takes to keep breathing easy in your cozy new basement.
With their tight weave and strong backing, carpet tiles are, in fact, resistant to water. Though they aren’t completely waterproof, they’re great for areas that are prone to moisture or the occasional spill—think of your basement, playroom, or workout room! And, as mentioned, if a bigger spill happens and damage is done, it’s easy to replace just the affected tiles, rather than the entire floor.
It’s time to take back the basement. And with carpet tiles, it’s easier than ever. Contact your local Flooring America today and talk to us about our carpet tile options. We’ll help you find a style that works for you, your budget, and your space!
