    Carpet Tile

    Anyone ever used carpet tile? I'm talking the self-adhesive carpet squares with the pad already attached. We're converting a bedroom into an exercise room and were thinking of giving this stuff a try.

    Re: Carpet Tile

    When we were first married, rented a house with large carpet tile. It was awesome! Spill something? Pick up that tile, toss it and lay down a new one (or carry to sink and wash off). Problem solved. No adhesive present - and saw no need for it. Also, get two different colors and lay down different designs.

    Re: Carpet Tile

    have you preinstalled some mirror tiles?


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    I installed my own in the basement (glue type). Pretty easy, and nice to be able to replace just the damaged pieces if you need to.

    Re: Carpet Tile

    We used to use that at work all the time. We did not adhere it, but did not use it in super high traffic areas or areas where there will be wheeled carts. The good stuff is more costly than regular carpet but I think worth it for the right applications.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Would probably require a pretty big room and some serious planning, but an I-State logo would be pretty cool to have on the floor of a workout room.

    Re: Carpet Tile

    We did it in our new office. The guys who did it were good; you can barely see the seem lines. I'd do it at home for a basement in a heartbeat
