I have been looking for a really nice plush, thick and soft carpet tile but they don't seem to exist. I ordered samples from Williken Legato Embrace and Touch, and Instaflor I; the latter being the best, but still lacking.
Am I kidding myself expecting to find as nice a carpet as you could get in a roll application?
It is intended for our rec room where there will be lots of horsing around going on.
Yeah, I thought of extra pad underneath too, but that only deals with part of the problem - I still want a soft and denser carpet tile. The samples we have are almost scratchy feeling.
The reason we want to go with tile is so that we can replace the damaged-beyond-repair pieces (I've had to throw out too many area rugs due to stains that won't come out.) Plus we can install it ourselves.
