How to buy carpet tiles for a school?

So you’ve been tasked with buying carpet tiles for your School you work in, but where to start? This blog post is a guide on how to buy carpet tiles for your school.

What’s your budget?

One of the most important factors is establishing a budget. Can you afford the beautifully designed Interface carpet tiles without burning a hole in your pocket? Or are you looking for something more budget friendly that doesn’t skimp out on quality?

Let’s start with Nouveau Connections. The most affordable commercial carpet tile on our website. Great for hallways and classrooms. It may only be £1.89 but the quality cannot be faulted. There’s a choice of 10 colours, it’s made with Stainsafe material and it can be delivered next day. Perfecto.

If you’re after a more design led flooring on a budget these star pupils are what you’ve been searching for. They’re ideal for borders, walkways and feature areas.

Do you need entrance matting?

You don’t want the young ones sitting on carpet tiles that leave indents in their legs for days and you also don’t want to use a thin, colourful carpet tiles as entrance matting because they’ll be filled with mud and worn down in no time - not what you need. So it’s important to get the right carpet tiles for different areas.
