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 tile product costs slightly more than the equivalent product in roll form. However, 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’s 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 don’t 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 setting; 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 CARPET TILES?
Carpet tiles should be laid on a flat, sound, level surface. There’s 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 tile, 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.
WHY BUY YOUR CARPET TILES FROM US?
Because we’ve been selling carpet tiles for a long time, we know which tile will be best suited to which area. Everyone wants a bargain and the trick is to get the best carpet tile for your money – and we’ll make sure you do that.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT CARPET TILES YOU SELL?
The tiles in our Stock Ranges section are all brand new carpet tiles for sale, from ongoing quality ranges from leading manufacturers.
They cost more because the manufacturers 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 years colours.
Which means that if you know how many carpet tiles you need and there 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 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’ve cleaned and graded them, we offer them for sale on our website.
These very cheap recycled carpet tiles offer such a cheap option for everyone, they always prove to be a popular choice.
And of course, it is great for the environment to give these recycled tiles a second life, instead of committing them straight to landfill.
We grade them into A, B and C so you can choose the standard of tile you need for the space you have.
We can always send you a free sample so you can have a proper look before you choose.
WHICH IS THE BEST VALUE CARPET TILE FOR ME?
This is always the top question! And the answer depends on where you want to lay your tiles.
If you’re re-doing a room at home, the colour and the feel of the tile will both be important but the space is likely to be smaller than in most commercial sites, so have a look in the Clearance section.
You’ll find top of the range tiles in a fabulous array of colours and styles and all at a discount carpet tile price.
If you’re re-doing a commercial area or a space at home that’s not ‘front-facing’, maybe a shed, garage, back office or workshop, then for a very cheap carpet tile option, pick from our Recycled tiles.
These are all great tiles that have been laid before but offer outstanding value, just have a quick look and we’ll happily post out a free sample to you.
If you’re re-doing a larger space, say offices or other commercial outlets, you’ll need to check out the options in our Stock Ranges section.
We offer the best carpet tiles, all with long guarantees, from the leading manufacturers so you can be confident that you’re choosing the very highest standard of tile.
And we price all these new tiles as cheaply as we can.
If you want a special price for a bulk order, just get in touch.
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.
CAN CARPET TILES BE USED ON STAIRS?
Carpet tiles are ideal for stairs, but stair nosings must be used. These hold the upright tiles on the stair risers in position, so they can’t fall forwards and cause you to trip,
and the nosings cloak the raw tile edges. For domestic users who don’t 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 TILE?
It’s 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 is cut out.
If the carpet is glued down, distortion won’t be an issue, but any repair would be highly visible.
Far better to start again from scratch, but using carpet tiles for 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’s 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.
Don’t 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’ve 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!
- Make sure the area is clean, dry and level.
- Make sure you have enough carpet tiles to finish the job.
- 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.
- Adjust the centre-point as necessary to avoid cut tiles being in the doorway.
- Lay the tiles from the adjusted centre point along the lines of the cross and then fill in the four quadrants.
- 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.
- 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.
- And finally, if you want any carpet tile fitting advice or help, or a quote, please let us know. We’re here and always happy to help.
CAN I COME TO YOUR WAREHOUSE AND HAVE A LOOK ROUND?
Normally, we welcome all visitors but because of the Covid situation at the moment, we aren’t able to let anyone walk round.
We are still open every weekday though but ask that all visitors wait in our entrance lobby where we’ll happily show samples of the actual tiles.
It is a working warehouse, so we would appreciate a phone call first but we’re always happy to welcome you.
CAN I COLLECT MY CARPET TILES TO SAVE THE DELIVERY CHARGE?
Yes you can. A lot of our customers ‘tick the box’ on the online order form to say that they’d rather collect their tiles and avoid paying the delivery charge.
Once you’ve placed your order, we’ll be in touch to find out when you’d like to pick up your tiles and we’ll make sure they’re all ready for you.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO KEEP ME SAFE IF I VISIT YOUR WAREHOUSE?
This is a question that’s on everyone’s mind at the moment isn’t it!
We’ve been working hard all through the crisis to supply the carpet tiles people have ordered and have all the precautions in place to keep our visitors and staff safe.
We have a gated entrance lobby and ask that you wait there for us. There’s an automatic bell on the door so we’ll know you’re waiting.
We ask all our visitors to wear a face-covering or face-shield, sanitise their hands with our ‘kind to hands’ gel and allow us take their temperature.
And of course, we ask that everyone is vigilant about social distancing and be happy that a warm smile replaces a handshake nicely.
CARPET TILE WHOLESALE – HERE FOR YOU!
We’re here for you!
We like it when customers ring or email for advice, so be confident that if you need an answer or any other help to choose the best carpet tile, we’re just a call or a click away.
HOW MUCH DO CARPET TILES COST?
Carpet tiles can cost very little because you won’t need underlay or gripper and you can easily fit them yourself, so you don’t 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’s a false saving to choose a tile just because it’s 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 tiles, if you pick one from a clearance or recycled range. There are lots available so it won’t be difficult to find exactly what you want.
CAN YOU LAY CARPET TILES OVER EXISTING CARPET?
Carpet tiles should be laid directly onto a solid subfloor. Where a flat, dense carpet is 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.
