FLOR Modular Tiles...

WOW.... modular floor covering tiles are a HUGE thing these days...

In fact, I recall when FLOR first came onto the scene back in 2003.  I didn't know much about the company then but when 2007 rolled around, I was already wondering how these things worked! I was VERY curious how these pieces would fit together & how they would stay on the floor! I mean, couldn't I just pull one up accidentally with my foot!?!? 

They were.... after all just SQUARES....right? 

Well, I was relieved when I did more research & visited the FLOR site - I found out they were SUPER DUPER easy to install.  The tiles come with a round adhesive dot that sticks to the backside of the tile but not the floor....so that means...no damaging your floors...cool huh?

I FINALLY got to see the tiles in person when an exhibitor at the National Stationery Show had them in her booth.....they looked amazing!  

I think FLOR is perfect for people who want to add some interest & color to their home. I can also see these tiles in a commercial OFFICE SPACE...instantly adding a creative feel!

GET THIS: You can actually buy a few SAMPLES before ordering... which is a fantastic way to make sure you get what you want!!

  3. yay! so glad Flor is getting so much attention lately.

    about7 years ago we did our entire third floor in Flor tiles - the previous owner had icko carpet down and with dogs we thought the squares made more sense.

    Here's our tips:
    1. Put some sort of pad under them. They are not cushy enough to stand on their own.
    2. Don't buy the "just rinse it off"....buy 20% extra than your square footage - 10% as normal overage for installation cuts and 10% for replacements. You will kick yourself if you don't.
    3. Wear kneepads when installing them.

  4. I have FLOR carpet tiles in my living room, which is an L shaped room, so my options were two smaller rugs, awkwardly placed to try and create one large rug, or having two distinct spaces. I went with the Sophistikat tiles in a cream/tan combination and absolutely love them. They stay put without a problem, and are at the same time easily replaceable if one gets stained. I'm thinking about putting some in my guest bedroom eventually as well. Great product all around!

  5. JAMIE: thats such a great idea for an oddly shaped living space.. I also dont like buying several carpets for a space to find out they look AWKWARD...good thinking!

    ERIKA: awesome tips. With dogs this would seem like a great way to go... thanks!!

  9. Do you think those flor pieces for the garage work in snow/slush? They are adorable! If I can say that about garage floor pieces. :)

  11. I bought some about 7 years ago to use as a runner down a very narrow long hallway in my house. They are still in place today and look brand new. So happy with this product... such a genius invention.

  17. I first used flor tiles in my daughter's nursery and have since moved them to her play area. They're great with kids and dogs because they are super easy to clean.

  18. I've used Flor Tiles for years and love them! I've used them in multiple rooms, I even wrote a paper on them in my building and materials class when I was getting my interior design degree! Stain no problem, just replace it, finished using them, just send them back to Flor so they can recycle them, create an floor no one has, easy! Geez you'd think I got money for them, but really, I just love the product!

  23. We have these in our office and they're great. My friend is an interior designer and when we lived together she would bring home carpet samples for us hahah we used them as impromptu welcome mats or hallway runners (duct taped together since we couldn't actually install them...) they're very versatile.

  24. A FLOR runner for my kitchen is currently at the top of my list.

  25. Love carpet tiles. I learned all about them in college and how much more environmentally friendly they are. I came across Flor's website a few months ago and had a catalogue sent to my home. I like their stylish designs and would def consider purchasing to create the size area "rug" I want.

    ReplyDelete
  26. yes FLOR is definitely a wonderful product to have. and gotta say, i love those shoes!

  27. I've got Flor tiles in my living room. I needed a rug, and I wasn't 100% sure what size I needed to get. Mine are actually used, which means they were even cheaper than if I'd bought them new, and I even have extras if I spill on one!

  28. NiCK: interesting... Where do you buy used FLOR tiles?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Flor Tiles are absolutely amazing! We have them in our dining room and in our living room. :) http://designbuildlove.co/?p=282

  30. I have them in my kitchen right now. I plan on placing them in my garage once i finish the renovation out there. I will also be placing them in the living room as an area rug.

    They install very quick using the tac tile adhesive squares to connect the tiles.

    Flor is a company of Interface carpets and I love there philosophy and commitment to the environment.

  31. That's so funny, I was just looking at these last week. I've seen there in various designs and on various shows, but finally began checking them out in case I want to use them ever. They have some great colors and designs!
