Many commercial and residential offices use standard hardwood flooring due to its traditional appeal. However, for all your commercial and residential flooring needs, carpet tiles offer many more benefits than wood. Here are the top seven benefits:
A Great Way to DIY Commercial or Residential Carpeting
As a small business owner, or work-from-home parent, you do not have an extensive budget like the bigger companies do to renovate your workspace. However, just because you cannot hire professionals or have expensive flooring like marble does not mean you cannot do it yourself. Carpet tiles are easy to handle and install, and can be installed in any room, unlike wood flooring, which is harder to handle and more expensive.
Carpet Tiles Offer Greater Ease of Installation
Due to their relatively small size when compared to other types of flooring, carpet tiles are easier to install. If you are thinking of installing commercial or residential carpeting, using carpet tiles is an easy way to carpet any room you want.
Usually less than one square meter in size, carpet tiles offer the advantage of installing them room by room, allowing you and your business to continue operating during renovations. With carpet tiles, there is no worry about any lost revenue, like if you were installing wood flooring and had to temporarily close your doors to accommodate renovations.
Mix and Match for Your Dream Residential Carpeting
Carpet tiles offer a greater flexibility in design than other forms of commercial and residential carpeting and wood flooring. Tiles come in different shapes, sizes, and patterns, allowing you to create your dream flooring design without compromise. You can even spruce up your flooring with patterns and shapes with carpet flooring by mixing and matching carpet tiles, which would be very hard to do with wood, for example.
Enjoy Better Acoustics at the Office
Carpeting improves the acoustics of an office while muffling outside noise by absorbing it. This means office communications are greatly improved. Even if you do not run a music-related business, carpet tiles are a great option to reduce noise from permeating your walls and annoying your neighbors.
A Safer Work Environment
Due to the increased friction created by commercial carpeting and residential carpeting, it can be a safer flooring option than wood or laminate flooring. If your business operates in high-paced areas or with expensive equipment like electronics, for instance, carpeting can ensure customers and workers remain safe throughout the day.
On plastic or wood flooring, grease, water, or other liquids can make floors incredibly slippery, even after they are cleaned up. With commercial or residential carpeting, this is no longer an issue.
Carpet Tiles Are Easy to Store
Besides being easy to install, carpet tiles are easy to store. Whether you purchased too much for your business, or bought spare tiles to ensure future renovations and repairs are quicker, tiles are easily stacked and stored away.
Due to their small size, unlike other types of flooring which may be awkward to carry or store, like wood flooring or spools of carpet, carpet tiles can simply be put in a corner. In addition, removing tiles from storage is easy. You can simply take the amount of tiles you need or even a whole package at once.
In comparison, it is much harder and longer to remove other forms of flooring and prep them for installation. Carpet spools must be laid down, unwound, measured and cut appropriately, then fit into place and stapled down. Wood flooring needs to be removed from its packaging, laid out, and nailed, glued, or locked in. This is an unnecessary waste of time.
Your time is money. Save yourself the worry and use carpet tiles for your commercial and residential carpeting.
Affordable and Easy to Replace
Carpet tiles, due to their small size and affordability, as well as the ability to install them by yourself, are quick and cheap to replace. With other forms of flooring, like wood flooring, you need to remove entire sections of the floor to replace one damaged piece.
With tile flooring, you only need remove the damaged tiles and replace them. Since you will be using uniformly-sized tiles, all you need to do is get a new one from storage and place it where the damaged tile was. Quick and simple!
