Easy Step-by-Step Installation Instructions for Royal Carpet Tiles


Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile Installation Video
Install Greatmats Royal Interlocking Carpet tiles with ease. For floating or island installations, no tools are needed.

Wall-to-wall installations may require a tape measure, sharp utility knife and a straight edge. Adhesives are not required.

Begin in the corner of a clean, hard and flat surface. Leave at least a 1/4 inch gap between the tiles and the wall as the foam base will expand with increased heat and humidity.

Remove attached border strips where needed, and connect the tiles by pushing the puzzle tiles together. These carpet tiles utilize a universal interlock, and will connect together in any direction.

To keep the nap facing in the same direction, follow the arrows imprinted on the underside of the tiles. Keeping arrows facing in the same direction, work your way out evenly from the corner until unaltered tiles will no longer fit.

At this point, measure the distance between the installed tiles and walls or other obstacles. Mark the underside of the carpet tile you'd like to cut with with a pen and cut using a sharp utility knife. Be sure to use a straight edge guide, sharp blade and series of shallow scores to ensure the cleanest cut.

Leaving your expansion gap, install the cut tiles next to the remaining walls. The gap will prevent your foam floor from buckling.

If you need a finished edge for islands or a floating installation, reconnect border strips on those edges. Each tile comes with two border strips - one with a corner piece and one without.

Royal Interlocking Carpet Tiles are available in five color options.
