There are several things around the house that can be done on one’s own. Installing commercial carpet tiles happens to be one such activity.
For those who are not familiar with the idea of commercial tiles, here is a brief description. These tiles are used in the place of regular carpets and are known to have several advantages over conventional flooring options. These have become quite popular in recent times, owing to their extreme flexibility, variety and longevity. Commercial carpet tiles are available in exhaustive design, colour, and size options and are used extensively in residential as well as commercial spaces in place of regular carpets to lend a great aesthetic appeal to the flooring.
Installing commercial carpet tiles is a fairly simple process. Because this is a DIY flooring process, it saves you a considerable amount of money. Plus, if you wish to give your space a quick and easy makeover, these tiles are the best options to go for. In most cases, the entire installation process can be done in less than a day’s time, saving you a lot of effort, energy and time to tend to other business. Importantly, since you can lay down the tiles all by yourself, you do not even need to hire flooring professionals, carpet layers or additional manpower for the job. Just pick up a weekend and ask your family to help you lay down these vibrant tiles, and there you have a fun family activity too!
To begin installing these tiles, you need to first measure the dimensions of the area where you want to install them with utmost precision. This will help you decide the exact number of tiles to buy and save on extra expenditure. However, do keep a buffer of about ten extra tiles, just in case something goes wrong during the installation process.
Usually all tiles come with installation directions printed on the box, which also tell you the tools that you will require for laying down these modular tiles. Some tiles are self adhesive and all you need to do is pull off the paper cover on the back to reveal the glue beneath them. However, several tiles do require a layer of glue to be applied across the floor before the installation process. Also remember, that you require a special tile to apply this glue. Therefore, do not forget to pick it up from the store!
Finally, lay down and stick the tiles on the floor surface, starting from the very middle of the room. Use a pointed blade to trim the tiles along the walls and have a straight edge to cut with precision and make the tiles fit perfectly. Commercial carpet tiles are indeed quite simple to install. Why don’t you try it out for yourself!
