How to Replace Carpet on a Budget: There's Nothing Square About This DIY Carpet Solution! by Tiffany Zook
Tearing out old carpet? Here is a DIY solution that will not only save you money, but keep allergies at bay.
Our youngest suffers from allergies and we knew the carpet in her room was a dust trap. We still wanted a cozy feel in her bedroom, and we found a perfect solution: carpet tiles.
These DIY 12 x 12-inch or 24 x 24-inch squares come in all kinds of colors and patterns. My super-handy husband created a preschool play land by mixing up the colorful tiles. The carpet tiles are easy to install and rubber backed – no frizzy carpet or carpet pad to trap allergens.
Carpet tiles are washable, so if kids spill a drink we can just hose off that tile and return it to the floor after drying. No more replacing an entire room of carpet when stains strike or puppies pee. (Our landfills are full enough!)
These tiles are made right here in the USA, are durable, recyclable and cost a fraction of the price as installed carpet. Our 12 x 12 room cost around $100 to carpet. Hello savings! Sorry wall-to-wall, we're breaking up.
