Carpet Tiles, which are also referred to as a modular tile or carpet squares, have traditionally been used as a commercial flooring installation, however, residential usage modular tile companies have begun to market products aimed specifically at the residential consumer. They are square cuts of carpet that can be laid on your floor like tiles. There's no glue to worry about and depending on where you install your tiles will depend on what thickness you choose to install. Rooms such as the kitchen or bathroom, for example, will require a more even, flat tread, while bedrooms and living areas can be more plush and have real softness.
The texture and quality of a carpet is determined by the way it is made, or constructed, and the finish applied to the fiber tufts or pile. Test the pile density in the shop by bending the carpet sample back, pile side toward you. The less backing you can see, the better the carpet. Traditionally, the strongest and most expensive carpets have always been woven on looms. The term broadloom refers to any carpets over 3ft wide. The fibers are woven into the backing to form a dense, strong pile. There are two types of weave commonly used for broadloom carpets: In Axminster carpets, pile is woven into the backing material, a row of U-shaped tufts at a time. This weaving method allows a wide range of colors to be used to create quite elaborate patterns, although plain and simpler designs are more popular. The pile is always cut; it can be short and smooth or long and shaggy. In Wilton carpets, the pile is woven from continuous yarn, so that the fibers are buried in the backing to make a high density, hardwearing carpet. It is available with a cut, loop, and cut and loop pile.
Once you have chosen the carpet designs that fit your needs, you'll need to have them fitted. Professional carpet fitters may be the course you decide upon and is the correct decision to take in some cases. However you can of course fit them yourself. Doing it yourself is obviously the cheaper option, but it isn't recommended if you don't have the right tools or experience. Carpet fitting isn't as easy as it appears. The best way to ensure professional fitting of your carpets is to purchase from an authorised carpet retailer or dealer. Generally speaking, the carpet retailer will employ a fitting staff that is very experienced in fitting carpets and should do a very good job for you.
Alternatively, some men and women may wish to buy individual throw rugs for different parts of the cellar. These rugs can range from discount items available at the local thrift store to beautiful Oriental rugs that add a touch of elegance to the home. Usually, Oriental rugs are sold at specialty stores and will be a bit more expensive. They will surely impress guests, however, and this may be what home owners are ultimately trying for. These kinds of rugs will have to be cleaned very carefully so that the fabric does not fall apart after repeated washings.
Your choice of carpet fitter will entirely depend upon your specific needs. If you expect to change your carpet every few years, then you will probably be better off to choose an independent carpet fitter. If you want your carpets to last for a long time, then you should ask for a follow up from your retailer, as this will ensure that you have a stress free experience with the fitting. No matter whom you choose, make sure that you carpets are power stretched prior to fitting. This is very important in that it ensures that wrinkling and rippling are minimised. And don't forget to carefully measure your rooms before fitting and thoroughly clean the sub floor.
