So Floored with FLOR!!!

Our family has moved!!  This also means my home office has moved - I will share more about my office next week.  Our new house is 1000 square feet smaller, but since I did so much planning, we do not miss the extra space at all!  It really helps that our home is uncluttered and filled with sunlight.

One of my favorite products is FLOR.  They design carpet squares that can be arrange in any shape and cut to size if needed.  I have loved them for years - I talk about my fascination here and again here.  Our new house is modern and like I mentioned before small.  Our front entry also acts as a mudroom because it hosts the entrance to the garage, so I took the opportunity to use FLOR Tiles to create a T-shaped entry.  This makes the entry so much larger and easier to keep clean - we have had sooo much snow in Minnesota this year and the idea of everyone trying to stand on a 3x5 rug makes me crazy.  The FLOR tiles give us space and allows us to spread out and keep the floor dry.

We didn't stop there!  We also used FLOR Tiles in our dining area.  Space was tight so we created the perfect size rug and built a plywood table to seat 6 - it had to be narrow to fit the space without crowding the island and pantry cabinet.  I really love the Jitterbug pattern - it is one of FLOR's wool carpets and it is soft and beautiful.

Installing the FLOR tiles was very easy.  They just hook to each other with stickers and the rubber backing keeps them from slipping.  It really could not of been easier!!

Do you have any place in your home that would be perfect for FLOR tiles?
