Let’s say you’ve just bought all of your boxes of carpet tiles that you need. You’ve laid your tiles and you’re happy with your floor, but you are left with some tiles that you don’t have room for. Carpet tiles generally come in boxes containing 5m2 worth of tiles, (usually about 16 – 20 tiles) and most places will only let you buy them by the box, so chances are you do have some excess taking up room in your storage area. The way that we see things is that you can never have too many carpet tiles. We can think of a few scenarios where you would probably need a back up tile or 2, either that or we can think of a few reasons why you should keep your spare tiles.
