How Much Do Carpet Squares Cost? Purchase Price and Installation

By Lisa Hobbie Created: October, 2019 - Modified: June, 2023

Carpet squares are a popular flooring option for home and commercial use. They are designed tiles of carpet that are made to lock into place using one of a number of installation methods. Carpet squares are relatively easy to install - many without a pad or adhesive - and are typically very durable, low maintenance, and easy to clean. They go down very quickly, and it’s possible to install them in a tight space - especially compared to a large carpet roll. They are also a great option if stains or damage may occur, as you can just replace a tile or tiles should the need arise.

With so many benefits, you may be wondering, on average, how much carpet squares cost. They are actually very affordable, and you can enjoy amazing quality at a reasonable price. To determine how much they cost, start by taking a look at your space, measuring the number of square feet in the room you’re considering the carpet squares for, getting out your calculator, and figuring out how much product you will need. After you have that information, the price really depends on the space you will be carpeting, as well as your preferences and your needs.
