Carpet tiles are a versatile option for individual floor tiles can be mixed and matched to create a variety of texture or pattern in a single room. Tiles are also much easier to install than traditional wall to wall carpets. Carpet tiles come either with or without attached padding and stick to the ground by a process of peel-and-stick or tape floors. The installation process for each type of carpet tile is essentially the same.
Installing carpet tiles, Remove all skirting the perimeter of the room. Measure the dimensions of the room. Snap two chalk lines on the floor perpendicular to each other so that cross at the exact center point of the room. Install 4 tiles on the floor for placing one in each corner formed at the central point so that two edges of each tile are aligned with the lines next to her chalk. Look at the back of the carpet tiles to determine the direction of the pile of the carpet – the manufacturer suggests, usually with an arrow.
Install the carpet tiles work from the middle of the room outward toward the walls. 4 tabs adhere in the center of the room first. Remove the back of each tile if they are self-adhesive and release to the soil surface, or put double-sided tape on the carpet in the center of each row of carpet tiles directly on the soil surface, tile they do not come with peel-and-stick back. Install additional tiles working outward from the original square of 4 tiles, making a larger and larger square around it to the edge of the room. Cut the tiles that are closer to the wall with a knife if necessary.
