Do you pick hardwood, ceramic tile, or laminates? Choosing the type of flooring you should go for may not be the most exciting part of building or furnishing a home, but it is definitely one of the most important decisions you will make—after all, the floor serves as the canvas for everything else. 

If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind alternative, you might want to consider carpet tiles. This underrated material has been popping up everywhere and it's time we got on board the trend. 

These interlocking carpet squares can be custom-made in whatever size, shape, color or texture you might need to achieve your dream aesthetic. Whether you want to use it to anchor your dining area or add depth to your main living space, it's versatile enough to work with any part of the home. 

The best part? If a stain sets into one square, you can simply lift it, run it through the wash, and put it back in place like nothing happened—you can even replace the soiled block if you don't want to go through the trouble of scrubbing it clean.
