In terms of installation this vinyl tile flooring can be installed using the glue down method. This flooring is designed for easy installation and maintenance. Vinyl tiles can be installed in a number of different designs. Here are the different ways:
• Monolithic Installation Method: All the tiles go in one direction.
• Brick Installation Method: Each row of carpet tiles are off-set by half of the tile’s width. This creates a pattern that looks similar to brick.
• Ashlar Installation Method: Each column of carpet tiles is offset by half a tile, which creates a vertical brick-like pattern.
• Herringbone Installation Method: This pattern is produced from alternating rows of strip flooring.
• Stagger Installation Method: This method gives floors a more fluid and uniform look. The staggering of the planks is at random.
