Kids spend a lot of time on the floor playing with toys, playing board games, and just playing around! That is why I wanted to find a soft area rug for them to play on. Well, that is part of the reason. I also just think that an area rug does so much to soften a space up and add to the beauty and warmth of a room. Anyway, when I got a chance to partner with FLOR carpet tiles squares I was excited because FLOR Carpet is one of the healthiest carpeting options for playing and growing. FLOR carpet tiles squares are hypoallergenic with a low emission of VOC’s and they are made with varying degrees of renewable and recycled content. I loved the sound of these eco-friendly carpet tiles and I am happy to say they did provide me with FLOR carpet tiles squares in order to facilitate to my review. I received no monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
FLOR Carpet Tiles Squares
First I want to tell you a bit about FLOR Carpet Tiles Squares so you can know what makes them unique and how they work and then I want to tell you about my reading room/ toy room makeover. FLOR carpet tiles squares are unique because they don’t stick to the floor- they stick to each other. That way you don’t have to worry about harming your existing floor. You will love this innovative system of carpet squares because you can use them to create custom rugs, runners, or wall to wall designs.

Flor Modular Carpet Tiles Allows Customization
FLOR Carpet Tiles Squares are beautiful. FLOR Carpet makes some of the most eye catching beautiful carpet designs I have ever seen. Plus, you can arrange (and rearrange) your carpet tiles in fun designs and in fun shapes. Rotating every other tile can completely change the look of your rug and give you a quick makeover! You can work around odd shaped rooms or rooms with unusual dimensions. You can mix patterns for a more striking look. You can go bold with bright colors or muted with more classic choices. There is a square for everyone.
Carpet Tile Squares
FLOR Carpet Tiles Squares are practical and versatile. On the practical level, they are super duper easy to install. I just ordered my carpet tiles squares and they arrived in box. I opened the box, laid out the squares and used the included stickers to adhere them together all in a few minutes. Easy peasy and I didn’t have to wait for any installation crew or try to fit a rug into my car. Also on the practical side of things, they are stain resistant and ready to stand up to pets and kids. On top of that, if there is a bad spill, you can pick up that tile and bring it to the sink and wash it out! How about that? Pretty cool right! And if for some reason the tile is beyond repair, you can just replace the one tile. I love that. Then, on top of that, the carpet tile squares are versatile so you can change the look (by rotating tiles) or the size by adding tiles. The carpet tiles offer a scalable design system that works best for you and your space.
FLOR Carpet Tiles Squares are responsible. FLOR Carpet uses renewable and recycled raw materials to make the carpet squares and they are have low VOC emission. Random fact: When FLOR learned that discarded fishing nets damage our ecosystem for centuries as they degrade, they partnered with Aquafil to repurpose nylon from many sources, including these recovered fishing nets! If someday, you have worn your FLOR out, you can send it back to be recycled. FLOR carpet tiles are truly an eco-friendly carpet choice. Plus, they are made in the USA!
So now you know why I chose FLOR carpet tiles for my makeover! Here’s what I picked and how it looks.
My Toy Room Makeover
I absolutely loved having a toy room for my kids to play in but as they have gotten a bit older, I have begun to give away some toys to Good Will and take a corner of the room for me as a reading corner. I wanted an area rug that would be colorful and fun for them as a toy room rug and one that looked sophisticated enough for when I complete the toy removal and turn into a sitting room. I found the perfect modular carpet tiles- Floweret, in scarlet. I love the color and I love the pattern. It is stylish enough for my reading corner and the pattern will help stand up to the kids high traffic.
Flor Carpet Tiles Review
I chose the FLOR carpet tiles in a 3×4 tile arrangement which comes out to a 5×7 foot rug. It is perfect for right now and later when I remove that big train table that is now a piano table, I will have more room and I can add another row of tiles to make my area rug larger (without having to replace it). I love that versatility. I just laid the carpet tiles out like I wanted them and then I used the FLOR sticker to adhere them. The FLOR Dot stickers are marked with lines to help you line up the four tiles on a square and they are easy to pull apart if you want a redo. After 2 hours the adhesive strengthens for a tighter bond. They don’t stick to the floor but the back of the tiles is non slippy. The back of the tiles are also marked with arrows to you can easily keep the design going the same way or alternate if you prefer.
I think the FLOR carpet tiles make the room so much more inviting and my kids are more comfortable playing on the floor than ever before. It is a nice thick rug and it feels great under foot. I am loving the whole new look the FLOR rug gives to the toy room. Now I want them for my kids rooms.
FLOR is dedicated to offering customers the option to create their own designs using FLOR’s modular carpet tiles. Or, to keep things easy FLOR offers beautifully pre-designed rugs for the busy mommies and mommy-to-be’s. You can learn more and order at flor.com.
