Carpet flooring over tile: Is it possible?

Carpet flooring over tile: Is it possible?

You probably love your tile floors. But, at some point, you'll also wonder if you can install carpet over them.

We hear that question all the time. The answer is yes, you can! There are a few things to consider, though.

More common than you think

Your tiles might be old and out-of-date, and you want to refresh your home. But, especially if you're considering selling, it's essential to have a vibrant, on-trend floor; carpet's an affordable way to achieve that.

You may want something warmer and more comfortable on which to walk or stand. Or you may want a change!

Don't try this yourself

It looks easy, but tile-to-carpet can be tricky. This carpet installation is almost like installing over concrete.

First, the professional will check for loose tiles and remove them and any broken ones. You don't want to learn about a loose tile after it's installed.

Then the floor will be sanded, so debris and its level are removed. There could also be height issues that need to be dealt with.

Use the right kind of carpet

Thin, tightly woven rugs can show everything. But, of course, you want to hide that,  so choose something like a frieze.  

Frieze’s twist hides any rolls, waves, or other imperfections. And remember the underlay.

Explain the project to our professionals at our carpet store in St. Croix Falls, WI. We’ll help you choose the right one for your tile-to-carpet project.

Remember, you can’t go back

Once you do this, the tiles will have glue on their edges, possibly causing other damage. Once it's done, it's done!
