Now that we have the really exciting stuff out of the way, I have to share my two cents on the FLOR system of modular carpet tiles. First of all, I’d never had any experience with modular carpeting, but I figured it couldn’t be much more difficult than laying stick-on linoleum tiles (which I have done a few times). When my rug arrived in a 2′ x 2′ x 6″ box, I was ready to get going! Detailed instructions were included, along with a bunch of these sticky FLOR Dots.

I laid out my tiles on the floor in the kitchen, and determined that I wanted to do a 4′ x 8′ rug. The greatest part of this system is the flexibility! I ended up with two tiles left over from my 5′ x 7′ rug, which I will hold on to and use as replacements if when one of the original carpet tiles gets stained (it’s bound to happen in the kitchen, with my tendency towards spills…oops).

Once my carpet tiles were in place, I grabbed my FLOR Dots, and got busy sticking. The process was extremely simple, as I just lined up the corners on the pre-printed guide marks and stuck the carpet down using a bit of firm pressure.

Once the whole carpet was stuck together, I stepped back to admire my work. Sticking the rug together took less than 10 minutes, and I was very pleased by the results. The carpet is solid and there are no gaps or spaces between the tiles. Besides the ease-of-use and amazing quality of the rug, I am completely thrilled with the color and comfort of this rug. It makes the kitchen feel so much cozier, and the tones tie in perfectly with the new look of the kitchen. Which, by the way, will be revealed very, very soon! I have just a few more things to touch up, and then I will be taking the “after” pictures.

Oh, I must also mention that Emmy heartily approves of the new rug in the kitchen! She might look unsure here, but it’s only because she was wondering if I was going to make her get up from her new favorite spot to sleep.
