What types of cheap carpet tiles are available for sale online?

Carpet tiles for sale offer you ease of installation, durability, and design flexibility. They come in three main types: hardback, closed-cell cushion backing, and open-cell cushion backing. In addition, you will find several options for indoor, commercial, outdoor, or loop carpet tiles.

  • Hardback - Carpet fibers are woven through a thin layer of PVC. They tend to retain their shape well because of this feature.
