I am getting new carpet in lounge room. I also wanted to tile a small area that leads from lounge room door to outside. Like a small entry area to stop dirty feet walking straight onto carpet. My question is does it matter if the carpet goes down before we do the tiling?


Tile first, then carpet. Tiling is a messy process. Much easier not to have the carpet there to get messy and/or need to be kept clean while you are tiling.

    That, and it is also easier to butt carpet up to tile than tile to carpet. – diceless Nov 13 '14 at 4:26

    The carpets will also need replacing more often, so by putting then in last, you prove they can be replaced without effecting the tiling. – Walker Nov 13 '14 at 13:14
