Having a carpeted floor definitely has its advantages, but the cost of getting your floor done would definitely pose as a hurdle in getting the flooring of your dreams. Most people would just give up and leave their floors as is. Others would try carpet after carpet, decorator after expensive decorator and would have shelled out enough money to feed a small island for a month. So that got me thinking, “Are there any other alternatives to this dilemma?” Then a friend told me about cheap carpet tiles. The images that flashed through my head were linoleum tiles made to look like carpets. Weird, I know. And so, if you are like me, a person with a very low imagination, bordering on silly, then you had better read on.
Cheap carpet tiles are actually carpets, cut down to small squares with a variety of dimensions to choose from. They come in an assortment of colors (as many as you can imagine), in different styles (bolds, solids, patterns, etc.) in any type of carpeting (woven, needlefelt, knotted, hooked, tufted, etc.). There are even varieties that you could cut down yourself to suit your taste and style.
The way I see it, cheap carpet tiles are very convenient in a lot of ways, and on top of that, packs the benefits possessed by the old one-piece carpet. They are highly beneficial for people who have floor area problems, like maybe their space would be too small or too irregular for regular carpeting. With regular carpets, they have a fixed dimension which when placed in the wrong floor area, could create a lot of problems. You couldn’t very well cut them down to fit your space. You might destroy the design of your carpet, or even unravel the whole thing. With carpet tiles, you could just buy any number of pieces and place them together to form as small or as big a carpet you want. You could go wall to wall in patterns or solids, or maybe just a checkerboard statement piece on your floor. They also provide the insulation and noise reduction qualities that regular carpets have, but at a lesser price.
Looking at all those benefits, you might think that I am very partial to them. Let’s just say that I am a big fan, but I can also see a few points where one could make a mistake by using tile carpets. For one thing, you have to consider the color scheme of your space before you go out and buy a busload of tile carpets. You must be well aware of the colors that go well together, and those who don’t, because the results could be disastrous. Another thing to consider is that since you will be getting these as tiles, if you want a solid look, this type of carpeting might not be for you. You see, the divisions between the squares might be visible giving you that disjointed look, rather than one solid piece. But the way I see it, it is not that bad at all.
Well boys and girls, I hope my opinions on cheap carpet tiles has helped you in your decision making on how to improve the look of your space at home. If you need any further data, the Internet is a very rich source of information. I wish you well in your journey through the real of carpets. Good luck!
