thickest/best carpet tile?

Hi everyone,

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.

Thanks for any input you guys can offer!

If you want a soft landing for wrestling kids, it may be easier to get a thick padding under roll carpet. You can even double up the pad.
So what got you thinking tiles in the first place?

Hi Dairylander,

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.

Carpet tile is a good idea, as mentioned it can installed easily and without disturbing whole carpet a part of it can be taken out easily.
