Review: Flor carpet tiles!

We live in a condo with ugly tan carpeting- ugly tan carpeting that's lived through our two cats, our toddler and now our baby. So rugs are a must for our home- they cover the bad spots and bring some much needed color to our rooms.

I was shopping online for rugs for the kids' bedroom when I visited Flor to look around. I've seen this great modular carpeting mentioned on other blogs and have always been intrigued by the idea. Flor's carpets all come in tiles, so you can mix and match them or move them around, or even swap one out if you need to do so. And they're available in a huge variety of colors and patterns, so you can get whatever you're dreaming of for your home!  Buying in tiles makes it easy to get the exact size of rug that you need for your room, which would be especially great if you have an odd-shaped or sized room to carpet.

I think this botanical pattern is so pretty!

And I can barely stop drooling over this rug. Gorgeous!

I ended up shopping in the sale section of the Flor online store (I'm a huge fan of sale shopping!) and got the cutest Classic Winnie the Pooh carpet tiles. Since the kids' room is decorated with Classic Pooh, this was completely perfect for us!  

Isn't that just too cute! Available here for $2.99 per tile. 

I also ended up with some honeypot tiles- those seem to have sold out, so I'm glad I got them when I did! Shipping was fast, and in just a few days my carpet tiles were waiting at my door. They were easy to assemble, just use the included sticky dots and follow the instructions!

Since we put the carpet tiles on top of existing carpet, they have slid around a little bit, but not as much as I would expect, given that the rug is in our kids' room and gets a lot of foot traffic. The carpet tiles themselves are really durable and have held up to playing, eating and even our cats clawing at them.  I liked the tiles so much that I have gone back and purchased additional tiles twice now! 

Our fun carpet!

I was not compensated for this review and received no product to review. Just writing about a purchase that I made and that I love!
