Ė The popularity of do-it-yourself projects, fueled by low home mortgage interest rates, has been a boon to many manufacturers of home remodeling products, including, a Louisville, Ky. company that sells carpet tiles via the Internet and through their warehouse at 3320 Gilmore Industrial Blvd.

††††††††††† These arenít your fatherís carpet tiles.Originally used for both commercial as well as residential projects in the 1960ís, consumer interest waned due to a lack of interesting colors and patterns.However, with the introduction of more sophisticated and efficient manufacturing, as well as an increased emphasis in design and do-it-yourself projects, interest is growing.

“Carpet tiles are the perfect solution when you need a tough, versatile floor covering, including basements, boats, office areas, trade shows, boats and even garages,”

Johnson stated.“Because we purchase factory overstocks and materials left from large installations, weíre able to offer the best buy on commercial grade carpet tiles from leading manufacturers.”

Damage, spots, and spills can be immediately removed by replacing with a fresh tile.Tiles can also be rotated from high traffic areas to moderate traffic areas to maximize wear and appearance retention.

Europe, carpet tiles are a popular product for commercial as well as residential use.  Many Europeans dismantle and take their kitchen cabinets with them when they move. Carpet tiles may be moved in the same fashion. I wanted a name that described our business in one word.The name means Internet Carpetiles and thatís exactly what we provide.”
