Just Add Colour: Wolfgang x MIRA Floors & Interiors

This month we are pleased to offer a guest blogger from MIRA Floors and Interiors Kelsey Myers, who’s weighing in on some of the benefits of carpet tile in commercial applications and carpet tile design and colour options.

Benefits of carpet tile:

  • Easier installation
  • Less waste during installation
  • Easier maintenance and care
    • Lowers maintenance/replacement costs over extended periods
      • The ability to replace damages by the specific tile instead of the entire carpet
  • Can be installed over various floor types  
    • Can actually work around installation
      • Example: In an office environment carpet can be installed/replaced by sections, thus not having to shutdown operation and move staff which can increase downtime
  • More design options in colours, shapes and sizes
  • Due to the dense vinyl backing some carpet tiles are moisture resistant
  • Carpet tiles typically have enhanced stain resistance  



So why is colour important? Let’s take a look at some quantitative facts:

Fact #1 Studies have shown that 93% of consumers stated that visual factors are most important when purchasing a product.

85% of the respondents think that colour is more important than half of the other attributes associated with product selection.

Fact #2 Studies have shown that people make a subconscious judgement about a person, environment or a product within a minute and a half of the initial viewing.

Colour alone is based on 62-90% of that assessment.

Now let me introduce the Colour At Work carpet tile collection by Shaw Contract Group

This line creates a unique mixture of colour and pixelated patterns that gives you various options for making your flooring canvas pop while leading you a step closer to creating your personal dream floor.

Achieve up to 11 different installation pattern methods such as herringbone, brick, and ashlar between the four carpet tiles.

This line features:

  • Shaw eco solution nylon fibres
  • Lifetime commercial warranty
  • Shaw’s SSP soil protection which has:
    • Soil prevention properties that deter particles from attaching to fibres
    • Improves appearance over the life of the carpet

Here’s a look at each of these carpet tile pattern options:

1) Saturate tile 9×36 with a charcoal colour in the herringbone style pattern
