Why Carpet Squares?
Carpet squares (also called carpet tiles) have traditionally been used in commercial locations like schools, hospitals, and offices due to their ease instillation—especially in large spaces where wall-to-wall carpet installation would be more difficult. Most have adhesive backing, making them relatively easy to install even for one person. They don't require padding, glue, or tacking to put down and if one or more tiles are damaged they can be replaced without disturbing or replacing the others.
These advantages are making carpet squares much more common in residences as well, especially with new designs actually emphasizing the seams between the tiles and bringing that texture into the overall design. Carpet squares are also finding common application in basements, attics, outbuildings, and other locations where owners may hesitate to put down a thicker wall-to-wall carpet.
Why Wall-to-Wall Carpets?
There are other reasons why you may prefer traditional wall-to-wall carpets. Carpet squares do have distinct seams and lines visible between the tiles after they are installed, and if they aren't lined up perfectly you can end up with a floor that looks uneven and imperfect. Also, carpet titles often have a higher cost than carpet rolls and wear down faster under heavy traffic. You may also see squares come loose, especially in high-moisture locations.
