FLOR Tiles

FLOR ( is a product that has been available for a few years but is now gaining popularity in residential settings. The FLOR product is a 19.7" square modular flooring tile with a non-skid backing. This product can be used to create an area rug or it can be used in wall-t0-wall scenarios. The sample shown above is: needlepoint stripe, color: ginger.

The FLOR website is very user friendly; you can look at different styles and order samples (3 samples for $5.00). The website also features a rug designer feature and a handy calculator to help you figure the quantity of tiles you need for a given application.

What makes FLOR so great? Well, first, it's really inexpensive! If you are looking for a heavy-duty rug for your mud room or maybe just a temporary area rug these tiles are incredibly affordable. A 5 x 7 rug will average $150. The beauty of this product is the durability factor. FLOR tiles are designed, mainly, for commercial spaces with high-traffic so the tiles really hold up in a residential setting. If something does happen and one of the tiles is stained you can simply lift that tile and replace it with a new one. It's really that simple!

This is a great product to consider for play spaces, 3-season porches, mud rooms, basements, kids' rooms, bathrooms, and utility spaces. It can also be used in just about any room you desire but the finished look will be casual.
