Blog Launch

As you've already noticed, these tiles are quite different from other carpet products. Here are a few pictures so you can start getting an idea of how they'd actually look when installed.

Imagine, for example, an office building where the floor pattern at each level is different from the next. Just change the way the tiles are assembled, and there you have it.

And this could be on another level. This way you'd only need to have inventory of one tile.

This might be a composition installation for a large banquet room.

And this might be in another banquet room.

If you haven't already seen the Pattern Palette, which you'll find via many of the pages on the site, here are a few different patterns that can be created using Cocoon, shown in Red+Blue. By simply creating a group of tiles, then repeating the group on the floor, a unique pattern emerges. Ever seen another product that can do this? I haven't.

Oh, if these images aren't big enough for you to see the pattern, you can click on one. Then just hit the back button in your browser to come right back here.

A 4 tile group repetition like above is probably the most common way to make patterns using these tiles, but if you're dealing with very large spaces, it's possible to create larger groups, as shown below. If you need to you can click on an image then print it for use as installation instructions.

Here's the changeable, customizable 6-tile area rug. Arrange the tiles however you wish... then change it next week if you want. Because of the "StayTac" tacky backing built into the carpet at the factory, the tiles don't slide around on the floor. So you don't need any double-stick tape or silly adhesives to keep the tiles together.

The following images show very many different configurations... but I haven't covered them all.

Here's another idea of you. 16 tiles instead of 6. Sure you need a bigger area, 12 feet by 12 feet to be exact. Which is just about the size of a bedroom. If you need to cut tiles, just use a utility blade. But remember, StayTac keeps the tiles in place, so they won't slide around.

These are some shots of the actual product. I'm sure you're a bit tired of only seeing computer generated images.

When installing wall to wall tiles, just clean any dust away from the subfloor, be it plywood or concrete, and start placing tiles next to each other. A sharp utility blade is my tool of choice when I need to cut tiles. Just flip the tile over and cut from the back... you'll figure it out. It's easy.
