Whether you’re creating an inspiring environment that encourages collaborations and ideas or looking to add warmth and texture to your home, your interior choices matter a great deal – and that includes the type of flooring in your building.

Carpet tiles, particularly Desso® tiles, are a popular alternative to traditional carpets that are cut from large sheets and installed wall-to-wall.

First time investing in carpet tiles? Eager to learn more about Desso carpet tiles? Then read on to discover everything you need to know.

What are Desso carpet tiles?

Desso® is a brand that’s renowned for its extensive range of hardwearing, bold and functional carpet tiles (also known as carpet squares).

Manufactured by Tarkett – an environmentally-conscious company that takes sustainability very seriously – Desso carpet tiles are designed to preserve natural resources and reduce the impact of climate change.

Carpet tiles make it convenient for homeowners (and business owners) to install new flooring themselves – they simply slot together. This not only saves time but also makes it easy to remove and replace squares if they become worn or damaged, instead of having to pull up the entire carpet.

Where can Desso carpet tiles be used?

Offering excellent durability, and available in an assortment of colourways, Desso carpet tiles are perfect for rooms that need livening up around your home.

Despite being a popular option in homes, carpet tiles are also ideal for commercial spaces that receive lots of foot traffic – including (but not limited to) offices, classrooms and industrial environments.

Guaranteed to give your modern workplace (or home office) a fresh and invigorating look, Desso’s Tempra carpet tiles come in more than 60 vibrant hues.

Desso Essence carpet tiles are particularly suited to hospitality and leisure facilities, providing a hardwearing solution that withstands heavy footfall and maintains its gorgeous look for years to come. These tiles also work well in retail environments and allow you to create a striking arrangement that immediately captures the attention of visitors.

How much do Desso carpet tiles cost?

Desso carpet tiles start from as little as £99.07 (excluding VAT), here at WJD Flooring.

Though the exact figure will vary depending on your selection, these carpet tiles are a cost-effective investment for your home or commercial setting.

Unlike traditional carpets, Desso tiles are low on waste, easy to store (thanks to their modular design) and quick to install.

Given how straightforward they are to fit, you’re saved the hassle and expense of professional installation. And the speed at which carpet tiles can be laid and replaced also reduces disruption and downtime for businesses – helping to save even more money!

How are Desso carpet tiles installed?

In comparison to other types of flooring (e.g. laminate), carpet tiles are easy to install yourself – even if you’re no DIYer!

Of course, the first thing you need to do before you fit Desso carpet tiles is ensure the subfloor is smooth, clean and dry. You can use a vacuum to lift dirt, debris and dust or sweep the floor with a brush.

In most cases, you’ll find pile direction arrows on the back of each individual tile. Depending on the look you want to achieve, you can either follow these or lay them in different ways to create a shading effect.

Although carpet tiles don’t require a permanent bond adhesive, gripper or underlay, it’s worth using a tackifier system or anti-slip beneath the seams. This will ensure the tiles remain firmly in place.
