Are Carpet Tiles Any Good? Quality Carpet Squares

Lisa Hobbie // 2020

Nothing creates a cozy, welcoming atmosphere like 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 the 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 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



If you like the look and feel of beautiful carpet, but don’t like how it attracts dust, mold, and mildew, HiLine Carpet Tiles are the perfect choice. Perhaps the most attractive aspect of these carpet tiles is the backing, which has been treated with an antimicrobial agent which protects against mildew, fungi, and other harmful bacteria. 

If moisture is a problem and you thought carpet wasn’t an option… it is now! Some styles have been treated with scotchguard, making them even more resistant to stains. 

And with the easy peel and stick installation, this carpeting tile is the perfect option for a do-it-yourself update in your bedroom, basement, office, hallway, camper, bathroom, kitchen, garage, and almost any other hard surface. These carpet tiles are easy to clean with a vacuum and come with a 5-year limited warranty. 

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 over 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



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 a durable carpeting that is bonded to a foam base, providing a strong tile that will stand up to foot traffic, furniture, and lots of play time. 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 carpet. They also provide a stylish finish that is easy to clean by simply vacuuming them. These products are perfect carpet tiles for bedroom.

Modular Carpet Tiles - Perfect for Basements



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 carpet, 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!
