5 Reasons Carpet Tiles are Good for Tiny Homes

Carpet Tiles have come a long way since their invention a few decades ago. They are no longer those boring low pile industrial-looking things you can expect to find in office buildings and schools.

Here are 5 Reasons Why Carpet Tiles are a Great Option for Tiny Home Flooring

Easy to Install5 Reasons Carpet Tiles are Good for Tiny Homes

Laying down carpet tile squares may be the easiest way to finish off the floor in your tiny home. Carpet tiles don’t require special tools for installation, though it is a good idea to have an X-Acto blade as well as a measuring tape handy. You don’t even need a professional to install it, anybody can do it quite easily.

For the tiny amount of square footage in a tiny home, you can have your entire floor installed within just a few hours. An added bonus is that they are very lightweight. Should you decide to use them for flooring in a loft space they are easy to get up and down the ladder or stairs.

You can adjust them to just the right size very easily

The nice thing about carpet tiles is you can easily adjust them to exactly the size you need. You don’t even have to finish the entire floor. You could use your carpet tiles like a giant area rug if you so desire.

You can customize your own unique pattern

Carpet tiles come in much more than just the basic gray or beige that they used to. There are many amazing stylish designs and patterns of carpet tiles on the market today. You can even mix and match your patterns to create something completely unique and one-of-a-kind for your tiny home space.

You could save even more money by just purchasing different remnants that work together and creating your very own one-of-a-kind pattern. You can save a large amount of money by purchasing leftovers from someone else’s project.

It is much easier to repair damaged spots

If someone happens to spill something that cannot be washed off, or the dog happens to chew up a piece of the tile, this spot can be easily pulled up and replaced with a brand new tile.

Make sure to purchase just a few extra that you can lay down. If you have created your own pattern of unique mix-and-match tiles this could be a little bit more difficult. So you want to make sure that you have a good amount on hand that could work in any spot on the floor.

Carpet tiles are less expensive than other flooring choices

Since the beginning of the pandemic and a skyrocketing interest in home renovations, many finish products for homes have skyrocketed in price. This includes the price of installing hardwood and laminate flooring as well as tile.

The nice thing about carpet tiles is that you can still find some for around two dollars per square foot. This means that the average 250 square-foot tiny house could cost less than $1000 total to cover the entire floor.
