4 Flooring Trends We Love!

#1 –Smart Squares from Engineered Floors

Smart Squares is the new residential carpet tile from Engineered Floors. We love this product because it is a peel n’ stick carpet tile! Engineered Floors took the company’s most popular broadloom carpets and made them into carpet tiles. They are made with the company’s PureColor fiber so they are solution-dyed products. Also, the carpet tiles are comfortable underfoot because they have a Kanga Hide cushion backing attached to each carpet square.

Smart Squares from Engineered Floors

Engineered Floors just released the company’s new residential carpet tile brand called Smart Squares. Engineered Floors took the company’s most popular broadloom products and transformed them into 18 inches by 18 inches carpet tiles. The company uses a unique Peel n’ Stick installation system, which means the product can be installed on most sub-floors.

Every Smart Squares carpet tile uses Engineered Floors’ PureColor fiber system. PureColor carpet fiber is solution-dyed so the color will not fade, wear off, or stain. In addition, you do not need any additional pad under the tiles because each tile has an attached cushion backing. The attached polyurethane premium cushion will not crush or flatten out over time. The attached backing is called Kanga Hide.

The residential carpet tiles from Smart Squares are perfect for DIY installation because the pre-applied pressure sensitive adhesive makes for a no mess, no fuss flooring. Also, if you ever need to replace a tile, just prep the floor, peel, place, and press the tile into place.

In A Snap, Walk In the Park, Easy Street, and Piece of Cake are the residential carpets tile that we carry from the Smart Squares brand. Be sure to check them out!
