There is nothing more stressful than a DIY renovation gone wrong. With the uprising of HGTV and interior design Tik Tok, everyone thinks they are master home designers.
While you may be great at some aspects of design, consulting a professional will help you get the best results.
Carpet tiles have been trendy in the industrial, office and retail space for a while now, but they also have a growing popularity in residential areas. Carpet tiles are desired because of their adaptability, ease of install and range of design.
When you google carpet tiles, a million different articles about doing your DIY project will pop up. There are articles about how to install them, design them or even how to cut them yourself.
Carpet tile installation may seem like a task you can handle independently, but we recommend leaving it to the professionals if you want the best results.
Why you should use an expert for the installation
We always recommend doing a carpet install through a good furniture or office specialized dealership. Working with a dealership means your project will get done right the first time.
A dealership will work with you every step of the way and handle all of the manufacturing conversations. They will also help you navigate the installation process and set up the install for your space.
Carpet tile installation can be expensive and messy if not done correctly.
Carpet tiles need to be precisely ordered and manufactured to fit your space. If there is even a slight error in one tile, then that will affect your entire room. Carpet tiles also have to be installed correctly to prevent slipping, tearing and breakage.
By installing carpet tiles properly, the first time, you can save yourself significant headaches in the future.
Why you should use an expert for the design
You know your space best, and you are the one who will be working in that office for years to come. You want to ensure that not only is your space ideal for the time being but will also last far into the future.
Workspace planners, designers or furniture account representatives sort out all of your ideas and inspirations and guide you in the right direction.
They are skilled at bringing your vision to life in a practical way. Workspace planners have an in-depth knowledge of the products and the best utility of these products. They will be able to help you select what carpet tile would work best in your space and beyond.
When you are looking at upgrading the flooring of your space, it’s essential to include a professional as early as possible in the conversation.
What you need to consider before going to an expert
Having an idea of the main goal of the room will make the design process much smoother.
Do you want an office space for individual and focused work? Or perhaps an area for collaboration and creativity? Depending on what products you want to foster in the room will depend on what the design of the space would work best.
Some considerations that workspace planners consider are the primary colours already existing in your space and the colour story you want to tell.
When working with an office furniture supplier, they can help determine your room’s function and select products that will enhance the experience. They can also work directly with manufacturers and be your direct line of communication with installers if needed. They can assist you in overseeing the project, so if there are any discrepancies or issues, they are there to help.
The bottom line is that by using a professional, you will get professional results.
Before getting the help of a professional, there are some things you will need to consider.
Having a dealership and designer that understands your goals is crucial. List out your priorities when getting new carpet tiles. Goals can range from budget, timeline, function, colours, or anything else you deem essential.
We already spoke about this once in the article, but the function of the room is essential. What you will be using the room for will help determine what carpet tiles work best for space.
Before going to a workspace planner or an office furniture supplier, think about your ideal budget and timeline for the product. It’s always a brilliant idea to know what you want to spend and when you need the project completed. But it’s equally important to be flexible.
Manufacturing timelines can change depending on what product you want, so picking a product that works within your timeline is essential. This also applies to choosing a product that works within your budget.
Think about what colours you want in the space and document any existing colours that are currently there. The ceiling and wall colours will help you determine what carpet tile colour and design would bring life to your space.
If you want to add a pop of colour, list out the colours to bring to your designer. Any major furniture or statement items in the room should also be documented because you want your carpet tiles to work alongside them and not clash.
Bring any colour or pattern inspiration with you when you meet with your workspace planner. Most dealerships will also have a resource library available to browse.
Experts can bring your space to life and make carpet tile installation processes smooth from start to finish. They will be there every step of the way and be able to answer any questions you may have!
