I need to replace a section of carpet tiles but can't figure out where they came from. I visited my local dealer and they were of no help. Any ideas where to get matching tiles?

RE: need to find matching carpet tiles
Unless it's a popular brand, it may be difficult to find a match at a retail store. Try going to builder/contractor supply warehouses or flooring outlets.

Unless you purchased the carpet in the last couple of years, chances are good that they make not make that color or style anymore. I would pull off the carpet tile and see if you can find a brand name or logo on the back and start your search from there.

Can you use a tile from another area that is concealed and won't miss it such as under furniture?

Good idea Gayle.  I hadn't thought of that.  Since we never move our TV entertainment center, I was able to take some tiles from that.  They are a little darker because the other ones have faded, but for my purpose, it works well enough.
