concord carpet tiles

If you’re considering carpet in your home, you might have heard about carpet tiles, also known as carpet squares. Carpet squares can go just about anywhere and can be a worthwhile substitute to the typical carpet rolls, called broadloom carpet. Here are some ideal places to use carpet tiles.

Kid’s Bedroom

Carpet squares work well in a kid’s bedroom because they can be changed easily as your child grows. You can change out tile with different textures and patterns or even the way the tiles are laid out. Carpet squares come in a variety of style options and with many youthful colors, they are usually chosen because they help to brighten up a room.

Living Room

In many homes, the living room becomes a child’s playroom as well. Many parents know that where the child goes, mess often comes along with it. Carpet squares deal with messes quickly and efficiently as they can be pulled up if it becomes dirty and then washed right under the faucet. They can then be placed right back and your carpet looks like new again. Carpet tiles can also be laid without adhesive glue, which often contains a high amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).


Carpet squares are surprisingly durable and depending on the pile and fiber type that you choose, can easily hide the matting that occurs in hallways. In addition, carpet tiles transition well between different areas of your home and different flooring materials. If the hallway area becomes matted and worn in one particular area, simply replace the old areas with a new square rather than ripping and replacing the whole area. Easy installation is a plus for many busy families for families in the Concord and Martinez, California areas.

Choose carpet squares throughout your home. Avoid using this material in moisture prone areas such as kitchens, bathroom, and laundry rooms as they do not hold up well in high-moisture areas.
