There is an increase in do-it-yourself carpet as carpet tiles and squares make a comeback.
Until now, carpeting
has dominated the standard for floor covering. What made carpet difficult for the online flooring industry is the fact that it was bulky to ship and hard to install for the DIY. The answer to the downfall of regular carpet is carpet tiles or squares.
We just returned from Shaw Floors industry show in Seattle, Washington. It was a smart decision on Shaw's part to host one of their largest shows at the Qwest Convention Center since the entire floor area is covered with flooring tiles - proof once again that carpet tiles are a practical and beautiful flooring solution.
Carpet tiles prove to be a superior choice to carpet in nearly every way. Beautiful patterns and textures make carpet tiles suitable for every home.
Carpet tiles/squares are one of the easiest do-it-yourself home improvement projects. Two of the largest makers of modular carpets, Milliken and Interface, are marketing their new carpet systems online.

Like laminate flooring, carpet tiles can easily be installed by do-it-yourselfers. Like ceramic tile, it is installed tile by tile, except with carpet theres no glue required! Carpet tiles/squares are made from bonded carpet.
Unlike the old carpet tiles of the 80's, these products are made better, and look almost seamless when installed. Recently some of Milliken's carpet tile - modular tile - was featured on an episode of "Trading Spaces". That job was successfully installed by a women and a 12 year old child!
