Great new FLOR

We live in an older home with some great wooden floors, however the search for a nice area rug has taken us so long. I'm pretty picky and a lot of the styles and selection for area rugs just don't match my own style and what I'm looking for to put in my living room.

A few weeks ago I ran into a website called FLOR with some great designs for rugs and area rugs. Foreign to the modular carpet tile concept I was pretty intrigued, this looked like a simple and easy way to get a great look and make your own design with some easy to install tiles.

I was lucky enough to get to review one of the products. The Classic Quilt Cream Color area rug is exactly what I've been looking for. Once the product got here, installing it was easy. I think the hardest part of the whole process was moving our furniture out of the way to get the tiles on the floor and laid out how we liked it. Being able to make the carpet our own design with the tiles is probably one of the features I love best. You figure out how you want it to look instead of a company doing it for you. Another great reason to love FLOR....Stain Resistant!!! We've already had a mishap or two with the girls spilling something, and its as easy as removing the tile, blotting the spot and rinsing it off, that easy.

The misconception with FLOR tiles seems to be (and I had this at first too) the stickers you use to keep the tiles in place. These 'stickers' are called FLORDots. What I thought at first was that you stick them to the floor and stick the corners of the tile to them. This is not true. The FLORDots are stuck to the tiles only, not the floor. The FLORDots hold the tiles into place while the tiles hug the floor. The entire area rug has not moved once, I didn't have to buy one of those non skid pads to put underneath to keep the tiles in place, it stays put until I wish to move it. There's no nails, no glue no nothing when using FLOR tiles, just the FLORDots and the hugging the tiles are all you need.

FLOR tiles can be re-arranged to give your room a different look when your tired of the same old thing and more FLORDots can be purchased on their site.

I love my FLOR, we're already looking at putting in an order for other rooms in our home, and looking at purchasing enough tiles for wall to wall when the basement is fully finished and ready for carpeting.

This is a great product! It's definately something I'll look into if we ever live in a house with hardwood or tile floors again. Thanks Gina!

Hello there! I am looking into getting some of these FLOR tiles but am still a little hesitant. In your opinion do you think these FLOR tiles could withstand an office chair rolling around on it?
