Which is the cheaper carpet or carpet tiles?

Carpet tiles are manufactured in a similar way to broadloom carpet, but go through two extra processes - adding a hard backing, and cutting into tiles.
Consequently a floor tile product costs slightly more than the equivalent product in roll form. However, modular tiles are easier, and therefore cheaper, to install.
Also, broadloom carpet can be very wasteful if the roll width does not correspond to the width of your room. Finally, a damaged tile is easy to replace, but a small amount of damage to a carpet may mean replacing it all.

Can I wash carpet tiles?

Carpet tiles can be washed with carpet cleaner, always follow the manufacturer instructions. Some tiles can be cleaned with bleach solution to remove very stubborn marks. Just check a small area first, or telephone us for advice. You may even take the tiles outside, pressure wash them and leave them to dry in the sunshine.
With most stains, dab up the excess with a cloth, and clean the stain working from the outside into the middle so that you do not spread it.

How long do carpet tiles last?

The expected lifespan of a carpet tile depends on how much use it will get. Cheap polypropylene tiles should last around five years in a domestic or light commercial environments. For heavy use, choose a tile with a pile made from nylon. Most nylon ties have a ten-year wear warranty; a heavier pile weight usually means a longer lifespan for the tile.
Pile height and the number of threads per inch can also effect longevity. We are always available for free advice

What goes under square carpet tiles?

Square carpet tiles (sometimes called carpet squares) should be laid on a flat, sound, level surface. There is no need for underlay but, if it is required, something fairly firm with very little give should be used, such as cork.
A soft underlay will allow the tile corners to pop up if you depress the centre of the carpet square, and should be avoided. For noise or heat loss issues, it is best to insulate the floor with insulation board first and lay your tiles directly on top.

What is the difference between the different carpet tiles you sell?

Stock Ranges

The tiles in our Stock Ranges section are all brand new stock range of carpet tiles, from the ongoing quality ranges from leading manufacturers.

They cost more because the manufacturers carry extensive ranges and support repeat orders so you can always buy some more if you want to do another area later.

And the other main difference is that there is no upper limit to the number of tiles you can order, so these tiles are ideal for larger spaces.

Clearance Carpet Tiles

Clearance carpet tiles will often be the best value carpet tiles because although they are all new tiles, they are from end-of-lines, discontinued ranges or last year's colours.

This means that if you know how many carpet tiles you need and there are enough tiles in that particular batch, you will grab yourself a real bargain. These are all top-quality, discount carpet tiles.

Recycled Carpet Tiles

All the recycled carpet tiles we have in stock are actually used tiles and have been laid before. We uplift them from prestigious outlets around the UK and as soon as we have cleaned and graded them, we offer them for sale on our website.

Are carpet tiles eco friendly?

Carpet tiles are an eco-friendly option for several reasons. Firstly, many carpet tiles use a high proportion of recycled materials during their manufacture. They often generate less waste material when installing compared to the waste from wide-width sheet carpet and, at the end of their life, carpet tiles can be recycled into other products.

Carpet tile installation in a commercial environment

A carpet tile installation is often chosen in commercial premises in preference to other flooring solutions. Having been in the trade for many years, we know every installation has its own requirements. We are here to show that carpet tiles can offer flooring solutions that other types of flooring and floor coverings cannot.

Can carpet tiles be used on stairs?

Carpet tiles are ideal for stairs and easier to fit than other floor coverings, but stair nosings must be used. These hold the upright tiles on the stair risers in position, so they cannot fall forwards and cause you to trip,
and the nosings cloak the raw tile edges. For domestic users who do not want to use nosings, you could install a tile on the tread only, with a UPVC ramped trim to hide the edge of the tile. The risers can be painted; this will provide the comfort of a tile on the treads, without the need for nosings.

How to replace a section of carpet with tiles?

It is unlikely that replacing a section of damaged carpet with tiles would work. The carpet may be stretched onto gripper so it would distort if a piece was cut out.
If the carpet is glued down, distortion will not be an issue, but any repair would be highly visible.
Far better to start again from scratch, but using carpet tiles as a floor covering because of their extra versatility and longer life span, a benefit derived from the ease with which worn or damaged areas can be replaced.

Are carpet tiles easy to install?

Carpet tiles are easy to install. It is best to start in the centre of the room, lay out a cross in carpet tiles then adjust its position so that you avoid uneven or very narrow gaps around the perimeter.
Do not start against a wall, because if the wall runs out, so will your carpet tiles. Once you are happy with the position of your starting cross, fill in the four quadrants and finally do the perimeter cuts.
Adhesive will stop the tiles from slipping or moving, but will allow easy replacement of necessary

How do I lay my carpet tiles?

We have a handy carpet tile fitting guide to help you lay your tiles once they have been delivered and if you want to have a quick look click on the link, but here are a few at-a-glance top tips to help.

  1. Make sure the area is clean, dry and level.
  2. Make sure you have enough carpet tiles to finish the job.
  3. Mark the middle of the room with a ‘chalk line’ cross and start loose-laying your tiles from the centre of that cross towards the door, rather than starting to lay your tiles from the doorway inwards.
  4. Adjust the centre-point as necessary to avoid cut tiles being in the doorway.
  5. Lay the tiles from the adjusted centre point along the lines of the cross and then fill in the four quadrants.
  6. Use spray adhesive on every third row to keep the tiles in place and only ever spray the back of the tile or the floor, definitely never both. If you put adhesive on both, the tile will be impossible to lift up again if you need to make small corrections during laying or change it in the future.
  7. Cutting the edge tiles and getting them to fit nicely is the trickiest bit. Have a look at our fitting guide for how to measure and fit the tiles around the edge properly.
  8. And finally, if you want any carpet tile fitting advice or help, or a quote, please let us know. We are here and always happy to help.

How much do carpet tiles cost?

Carpet tiles can cost very little because you will not need underlay or gripper and you can easily fit them yourself, so you do not have to pay a fitter.

The cheapest carpet tiles cost less than £1 for a 50cm x 50cm tile (less than £4 sq m) but can cost a lot more if you want a luxury tile, maybe up to £3 a tile.
​Our best advice is to choose the right tile. It is a false saving to choose a tile just because it is the cheapest if it looks ditched in a couple of months.

Carpet tiles are made with either a nylon fibre or a polypropylene fibre. A nylon tile is harder wearing than a polypropylene tile but will cost more. So think about how busy your room is going to be and whether you need to pay more.
A top tip is that darker colours look good longer!

And you can buy really cheap, but top quality carpet tiles, if you pick one from a clearance or recycled range. There are lots available so it will not be difficult to find the discount carpet tiles you want.

Can you lay carpet tiles over existing carpets?

Carpet tiles should be laid directly onto a solid subfloor. Where flat, dense carpets are fitted that does not compress it may be possible to lay the carpet tiles straight on top. However, if the tiles are not on a firm base then the corners will pop up when pressure is applied to the middle causing a trip hazard.

Are carpet tiles waterproof?

The answer to this depends on the perspective of the question. Carpet tiles are water resistant, not waterproof, and can be cleaned with a damp cloth without shrinking or distortion. Soaking them is likely to distort the tiles and cause staining.

Where can I buy carpet?

There are many online places to buy commercial carpet tiles and office carpet tiles but some companies (with the biggest adverts) are large, national multiples. Few will offer the degree of knowledge and support we do for your carpet tile installation queries and questions.
