How Thick Are Plush Carpet Tiles?

By Paige Cerulli Created: June, 2022

Plush carpet tiles add a comfortable, luxurious feel to any room. But before you choose the tiles that are right for your project, it’s important to make sure that the tile thickness will work within the space.

How Thick Are Plush Carpet Tiles?

The thickness of plush carpet tiles varies from product to product. Some products measure just over a half-inch thick, while others are as thick as 1 inch.

The tile thickness can affect whether you’re able to open doors once the tiles are installed. A tile that’s too thick can catch on the bottom of a swinging door, causing wear to the tile and making it difficult to use the door.



Before you start shopping for plush carpet tiles, measure the height of the doors in the room and determine the maximum height of the tiles that will work in the space. Be sure to include the height of any underlayment that you plan to use in that calculation.

It’s also important to think about the type of installation method that you want to use. If you’ll be installing the tiles yourself, consider what type of installation you’re most comfortable with.

Many carpet tiles feature interlocking edges that allow you to remove and reinstall the tiles again as needed. There are also some peel and stick self-adhesive tile options that allow for a more permanent installation.

The Best Plush Carpet Tiles

At Greatmats, we carry several plush carpet tiles in varying thicknesses. They offer many benefits, from easily removable designs to the ability to put tiles in your washing machine for a deep cleaning.

Royal Interlocking Carpet Tile


The Royal Interlocking Carpet Tiles measure ⅝ inch thick and are suitable for residential and commercial applications in trade show booths and theaters. The tiles provide anti-fatigue and insulation properties similar to a traditional carpet, but offer much more convenience.



These tiles are lightweight and easily portable, and you can install and remove them as needed. They are waterproof, odor proof, and stain resistant, making them a durable addition to a home or business.

The interlock design makes for a fast installation, and each tile includes two border strips ideal for island installations. You can also cut the tiles to fit an area.

Since these tiles won’t absorb moisture, they’re suitable for use in basements and other areas where traditional carpeting isn’t ideal. The floor can be vacuumed for easy cleaning.
