What Are The Advantages Of Good Carpet Tiles?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: February, 2020 - Modified: February, 2024

Nothing creates a cozy, welcoming atmosphere like a nice, plush carpet. The comfort under your feet, the warmth it adds to a space, and its ability to transform the look and feel of a room are second to none. It isn’t always a feasible option to carpet a room, though… or, is it?! One would think that if a room or space is prone to moisture, like a basement, for example, carpet is out of the question. In fact, this is not the case.

Are carpet tiles any good? Yes - carpet tiles are a great option if you want the look and feel of carpet, without its vulnerability of it.

Let’s explore the advantages of carpet tiles and look at a variety of the best carpet tiles offered by Greatmats, all of which are high quality and available at a great price. With options suitable for home and/or commercial installations, and many bedroom carpet tiles available, Greatmats is your one-stop-shop for carpeting tiles that will satisfy your eyes and your wallet!

Peel & Stick Carpet Tiles Are Very Convenient

Carpet Tiles Convenient Peel and Stick

Smart Transformations offers numerous options for peel-and-stick carpet tiles for indoor and outdoor use. Similar to vinyl carpet tiles, the fibers in these tiles will not fray or unravel, and they are made with up to 100 percent recycled, purified plastic bottles. 

There are many color and style options, and the pressure-sensitive adhesive makes for easy installation on any dry floor. Many people love the Dura-Lock carpet backing and fiber locking system that permanently locks each fiber in place. This product is very strong and durable, and will not likely fade, wear, stain, or deteriorate from mold, mildew, or odor. These peel-and-stick floor tiles are easy to clean and maintain, and they come with a 5-year limited warranty.

Interlocking Carpet Tiles - Easy Installation

Interlocking Carpet Tiles are So Easy to Install

If you want the look and feel of carpeting without the cons that accompany traditional carpet, interlocking carpet tiles, such as Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile, are another great option. The tops of these tiles are laid with durable carpeting that is bonded to a foam base, providing a strong tile that will stand up to foot traffic, furniture, and lots of playtime. They can easily be placed directly on clean concrete or tile without using adhesive. They are waterproof and non-absorbent. So, if there are spills or accidents, the tiles won’t absorb the liquid – which helps prevent the growth of mold and bacteria! In fact, these tiles are so good with moisture that they are often used in boats!

They are also odor-proof, easy to clean, and provide a comfortable anti-fatigue and insulation value similar to traditional carpets. They also provide a stylish finish that is easy to clean by simply vacuuming them. These products are perfect carpet tiles for bedrooms.

Modular Carpet Tiles - Perfect for Basements

Raised Modular Carpet Tiles are Perfect for Basement Installations

Another carpet tile option that is waterproof and durable is a modular square carpet tile. Similar to vinyl carpet tiles, this floating flooring type is made from recycled materials with a Berber-like carpet top. The tiles are designed to handle high roll loads with their quality construction and are great for cold basement floors as they reduce transmission of cold temperatures from the subfloor through the carpet. So, much like with traditional carpets, you will not feel the cold from the subfloor on the surface of the carpet. 

Modular carpet squares are easy to snap together with nothing to glue down or nail into place. Because the floor is raised, if the subfloor gets wet, the carpet tiles will allow for airflow beneath and can be disassembled and re-installed as needed. The easy assembly process also makes the modular carpet tile a great option where a temporary floor is needed. 

Greatmats - Your One-Stop Shop for Carpeting Tile

Not much beats the cost and durability that carpet tiles deliver. Greatmats has so many options other than those listed, such as carpet tiles for kids’ play areas, gyms, bedroom carpet tiles, patios, and more. 

If you have a floor to cover, there is a carpet tile option for you. Everything from noise reduction and traction to vibrant colors and odor absorption is available in this flooring type, and prices vary from around $1.00 per square foot to around $4.50 per square foot. Most options come with excellent warranties and will far outlive the time provided. When you’re ready to purchase carpet tiles, let Greatmats go to work for you!
