I was skeptical about buying this without seeing it in the store but the reviews persuaded me. This carpet tile is awesome! I can't see why anyone would install wall to wall carpet when this is available. I I'll install this from here on out. You can't see any seems anywhere! The only thing is it could have a little more padding but what is there is acceptable! Highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GreatSave9 Excellent DIY project, easy to install.
We are enjoying our new carpet in the basement. We took a big risk by putting a 10lb foam padding down first, and it's paid off, the floor is sturdy yet soft. I think a lighter 5lb would be too much "give" and tiles would pop up in corners. But the 10lb is real nice, found on Craigslist cheap. The Carpet Tiles themselves are charcoal color and went down pretty easily. Only issue was 1 in 20 would but cut badly or too small and would not line up. We did brick pattern to try to mix it up, and definitely use large scheers instead of scissors to cut these. Instead of paying for the extra steps, I just modify the regular 24x24 tiles into a runner for my steps which I like better and saved me money. High traffic areas you may start seeing seems, but that is the risk you take with this. Also any heavy furniture or sofas, do not drag on the carpet, ensure you lift up and drop as pieces can get pulled too easily. Again the stickiness is strong enough to hold onto foam 10lb padding, but it's not perfect. Small risk for extra padding. The dog loves it, so that's all that matters! Little pricey at $2 sq foot but not that bad, but ask Customer Support for 10% if ordering over $1k. They helped me out! Also easy to install if you have stuff already in your basement, just quickly and easily move it from side to side of the basement.

I was looking at this carpet for a long time but I was worried about it not being what I wanted.. I shouldn't have worried for a second. the home depot close to me didn't have a sample of the carpet so I had to buy it blind, but it was totally worth it... the carpet tile is not as dark as the picture (it's more of a medium gray) but it is so comfy! The pad is thick and the carpet is lush.. most carpet stores I went to had ugly carpet tile at $4 a square foot and it's hard as a rock... this carpet tile is $2 a square foot and lush and beautiful and perfect. It cost me $800 to carpet my floor in the basement and WAY easier to install myself..

I never give excellent on anything because I think there is always room for improvement, but this comes very close. I was so impressed that I have carpeted two bedrooms with it.

I have 5 cats, one a male who had been urinating in my front bedroom. I started looking at this carpet several months ago as it was an economical way to replace the "standard" carpet with tiles that could be changed if they were soiled. I wanted a gray shade, but all the available colors were in the brown / tan range. I called the manufacturer to get a sample and they told me they'd just released a new shade and promised to mail be a sample. After waiting a couple of days, I decided to take a leap and order it knowing that I could return directly to my local Home Depot if I didn't like. Note: I've still not received the sample!! The color is fantastic - a nice dark gray that looks very rich when installed. The tiles go down SO easily and are plenty "sticky". As long as you make sure the arrows are all pointing the same way, the tile seams are almost invisible. The pad is not the thickest, so I placed a layer of underlayment - normally used under hard wood floors - first, so that gives the carpet a little extra padding. The tiles are easy to cut with a good pair of shears. I installed in a 10x10 bedroom - including the underlayment - in probably 3 hours?? I took lots of breaks. I love this carpet.
