When looking for a cheap and easy solution to a space carpet tiles are cheap and DIY possible.
The most common use for carpet tiles are in office spaces and leased commercial properties. The reason being they are cheap, and easy to replace when tenants or business change. This regularly happens as business’ grow or new ones emerge.
Carpet tiles are also useful as they are modular, when damage or stains occur, a single tile can be lifted and replaced easily.
Installing Carpet Tiles
Measuring the space
Measure the dimensions for your area in square meters for your order from wholesaleflooringonline.com.au
Setting out your lines to make your installation efficient and square, carpet tiles are 500mmx500mm, therefore your straight line to follow needs to be set either 450mm off of your outside wall, or alternatively 225mm off the outside wall. This allows for minimal waste of material. Make sure your line right angle to this is set at a similar position to the parallel wall, again to minimise waste.
Spreading your adhesive

Laying the Carpet Tiles – Design Options
Your designs can be infinite or incredibly simple.
Let your adhesive dry out and go “tacky”
Now you’re ready to install. Begin laying the tiles either monolithic (all in the same direction) or a Checkerboard pattern(alternate directions).
Install the tiles along your lines first to keep the room square. Once the main area is laid you need to cut in the edge tiles. Templating is the easiest way.
Cutting the Carpet Tiles to Fit
Lay a new tile on top of the last full tile laid. Then butt another tile against the wall or skirting, score a line along the edge of the overlapped tile. Pick up the tile laid on top of the last full tile, bend the tile and its should break along the score line. Use your knife to make a final cut along the broken line. The tile will fit in the edge tile space perfectly.
Continue these cuts until the room in finished.
You have an easy to maintain office, commercial or temporary floor covering.
