Carpet Tiles For Bathrooms in Tile

Carpet tiles are in existence for fifty years but getting high popularity these days. They are a durable alternative to traditional carpets that are highly expensive. The trend of installing carpet tiles in bathrooms is not very common. But with the time this trend will be on its peak. In carpet manufacturing there are two types of carpet tiles especially designed for the bathrooms. One is called dry backed and the other is self-sticking tile. They usually have a size of 18 by 18 inches. These square shaped tiles have wonderful patterns and colors that give a very stylish look to your bathrooms.

Why Install Carpet Tiles In Bathrooms?

Let me explain you some of the main advantages you can get if installing carpet tile flooring in your bathroom.

One of the basic advantage is that you do not need an underlay and can install on your own. You can save a handsome amount by installing carpet tile flooring in bathrooms, as these tiles are inexpensive. If any tile is damaged you can replace the particular tile. But in case of typical carpeting you would have to change the entire flooring.

If you need to do wiring or plumbing in the bathroom you can take off the carpet tiles easily. This will not be easier in case of other types of tiles and flooring. Carpet tiles are soft and warm and will prevent slipping.

They are not much thick like the typical carpets thus can bear low as well as heavy traffic easily.

Cleaning The Carpet Tiles Of Bathroom

Like the carpet tiles installed in the rooms, the cleaning of bathroom tiles will be the same.

You should vacuum them at least twice a week. But it is better to clean them regularly.

In case of any stain, which is too hard and needs washing you can easily lift the tile wash it, let it dry and place it back.

Use a mild detergent for washing and you can also use carpet chemicals available in the market.

Vinyl and fiberglass carpet tiles are preferable for bathrooms if you are not using the dry backed or the self-sticking tiles. The reason is that these tiles have vinyl and fiberglass backing, which do not need underlay, and stiff sheets do not let the tiles curled or buckled giving life to the them and they serve for longer.

Using carpet tile flooring in the bathrooms is a unique idea. It will give a luxurious look to your bathroom yet you will fell comfort under your feet.
