Carpet tile has been around for over 60 years, so technically it's not a trend. But the use of carpet tile in residential applications is on the rise.Tim Baucom, Shaw Industries’ vice president of commercial sales and marketing, believes carpet tile represents "about 17% of the total carpet market.” And that number is growing, thanks to its obvious benefits — including glue-free installations, personalized design capabilities, the ability to selectively replace soiled or damaged tiles and less waste at installation.We're seeing this growth here in our store, as well, as more customers consider tiles for home use.
