Things to Consider
When selecting the right carpet for your space, there are many elements to consider. Certain carpets are better suited for specific applications. The following factors will help you decide what it is you are looking for in a carpet:
Carpet is soft and comfortable and it insulates your space. Unlike other flooring types, carpet is a natural insulator. Carpet will naturally warm your space and potentially lower your utility costs. If you add cushion beneath your carpet, its thermal properties are even stronger. A carpet pad will make your carpet feel softer and it will increase its useful life. Also, any carpet life can be extended by upgrading the pad. Carpet can also be used as an effective noise barrier. Carpets absorb sound, making your space quieter.

Those looking for an easier, more sustainable option for carpet should consider the benefits of carpet tiles. This type of carpet is particularly popular in commercial spaces for the benefits of its versatility paired with the comforts of carpet.
Carpet tiles are easy to lift, and replace if necessary. Typically, their size and efficiency produces less waste during installation.
While regular vacuuming and occasional deep cleanings are still important for this kind of carpet there are noticeable differences in the maintenance of regular carpet and carpet tiles. Damaged tiles can be removed and replaced with your extra stock tiles rather than cutting out and patching that is required for roll regular carpet.
Not all types of carpet offer the same durability, but there are some options of carpet tiles that protect against wear and tear that have a longer life expectancy.
Carpet tiles provide the opportunity of design freedom in the patterns and configurations that can be created upon installation.
