Dark Living Room - Flooring Experts in Brisbane, QLDThey’ve been around since the 60s, but they are still a flooring concept that leaves people scratching their heads. We’re speaking of carpet tiles and they are form of flooring that have many asking:  Are they more carpet than tile or more tile than carpet?

They are fast becoming used in office and commercial environments including retail stores and commercial showrooms. Carpet squares also look great in the home to create a modern look different from traditional carpet with a thicker pile.
