Yesterday I revealed my Craft Room makeover and I’m so elated to have the room complete and ready to use! One of my favorite parts of the room makeover is the new Flor® carpet tiles we installed… ourselves!
Each Flor tile is 19.7 x 19.7 inches square. They have tons of colors and plushness to choose from. I used their FLORbuilder Design Tool to layout the composition of the Flor tiles I selected.
Sweep up any dust & dirt and you’re ready to begin laying down your new carpet tiles. I laid out my pattern, but did not adhere anything to the floor yet. I just wanted to get every measured and the Flor tiles cut to fit.
To cut any tiles, just flip the tile over and use a metal straight edge and utility knife. Just two or three swipes with the knife and it was trimmed. Super simple!
Once you have all of your Flor carpet tiles in your desired pattern, you can start adding your Flor dots. Just put the Flor dots sticky side up and the carpet goes right on top. Love this since the sticky stuff will be attached to the carpet, not to the floor below.
The entire process of tearing up our old carpet, removing all the staples & tacks plus installing the Flor carpet tiles was about 6 hours. Not bad at all! Plus once my hubby helped me rip up all the carpeting, I did the rest myself (cut the carpet tiles, laid the pattern and adhered with Flor dots).
I have to say… I AM IN LOVE! I love the look, and if my 4 year old spills something, they’re easy enough to peel up and clean (or replace entirely if necessary).
One last note: we did not have to remove our baseboards during this process. The Flor tiles fit perfectly underneath and did not leave a gap. If you try Flor tiles though, you might need to remove your baseboards and reinstall after the flooring is down!
SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Pretty cute, huh? And if you don’t want to do an entire room in Flor carpet tiles, you can also create an area rug! There are tons of color selections and even patterns. I’m thinking I should create an area rug for my kitchen next!
