What are Carpet Tiles?

Carpet tiles also referred to as modular carpets or carpet squares, are a type of flooring often used as an alternative to broadloom carpet. Individual carpet tiles typically come in sizes 24″ x 24″ or 18″ x 18″ but are also available tiles as small as 12” x 12″ and as large as 39″ x 39″.


Carpet tiles consist of a layer of pile attached to a backing and come in a variety of materials, patterns and colours, and are commonly seen in commercial and public buildings. Tiles are also manufactured in both non-adhesive (meaning they require gluing) and adhesive (peel-and-stick) styles.
