Carpet tiles come in many different styles and colors and are available in various sizes, multiple fiber types and pile styles. This means that you can likely find a carpet tile equivalent for the roll of carpet you were considering or would have otherwise used in your home. The major difference between carpet tile and carpet roll are the tile backing on the carpet tiles. Carpet tile backing material options include: vinyl, fiberglass, vinyl/fiberglass, urethane, woven polypropylene, and recycled vinyl. Quality backing systems are important because they provide dimensional stability and help carpet tiles withstand moisture. Carpet tiles come in both adhesive and non-adhesive backings to fit your DIY needs.
