Today, tiles have alternatively referred sometimes similarly made up of perlite, wood, and mineral wool, typically employed for wall and ceiling applications.

Carpets are textile flooring to cover floors made from layers of "pile". Carpets are usually either made up of wool or maybe a manmade fibre for instance polypropylene, nylon, or polyester and often consist of twisted tufts and are often heat-treated to support their structure. Definition of "carpet" is usually used interchangeably while using word "rug". Sometimes people sees carpet being a decoration from wall to wall. Other folks see rug like a used cloth of inferior while carpets have top grade with knots.. In past times, carpets were used for decorations and coverings in both wall and tables and was regarded to be the top art in the Arab world. And by the way, the carpets mentioned here are not flying carpets we imagined during our years as young ones.

Does tile better than carpet? Carpets can cover only specific area of wall and floor area but tiles can cover both specific and largest area not only walls and floor but also ceilings, roofs and sinks. It is unthinkable to cover ceilings and even tabletops and sinks with carpets. Carpets, especially commercially made, with elegant designs, can make your room elegant only on specific area, whereas tiles can change your rooms with most area, especially with design. It is easy to clean the tiles than the carpets.
