My basement makeover has been quite an adventure, but in a good way! I’ve already written about the wall and floor paint we used from Farrow & Ball that I got at Carbon Environmental Boutique. I have been super excited to finally get FLOR carpet tiles to finish everything off!
All FLOR carpet tiles are nontoxic, hypoallergenic and meet or exceed standards for low VOCs. They are made from reclaimed and recycled materials, and manufactured in progressive, energy-efficient facilities. Because they are modular, you can move them around, and if you spill something, you only need to clean the tiles that are dirty! My friend told me that she uses a tile floor steam cleaner to clean her tiles if they ever get dirty, but mine have stayed clean so far! I also love that the tiles are recyclable, so if you decide to change things up, return them to FLOR to be recycled into new products!
The staff at Carbon Environmental Boutique were amazing as usual. They helped me narrow down some options and ordered sample carpet tiles for me to take home and look at in our space. I feel so valued shopping at Carbon, because they know me by name, and always keep me updated on when things are expected to come in. Plus, they always follow up to check in on how things are going and whether I need help. Best customer service ever!
I went with the pattern Soft Static in Frost, and decided to alternate the linear pattern to create some contrast. These tiles are Green Label Plus Certified for indoor air quality (no nasty off-gassing!) and made from 65% total recycled content.
So how easy are they to install? SUPER EASY!!! The underside of the FLOR carpet tiles have arrows so you know what direction to place them when creating a pattern.
All you need to do is lay out the tiles, making sure they are snug, and then place the sticky FLOR dots under them. The FLOR dots are clear square stickers that you stick to the underside of the tiles between them to keep them in place.
The tiles are easily cut with a sharp knife to fit around door jambs and such. It took us just a few hours to do our whole basement, and no sweating involved!
I absolutely love how much more sophisticated and gorgeous our playroom/office now looks!
Not to mention the family room is looking pretty stellar also!
I am absolutely thrilled with the results and even more thrilled with how easy it was to install the FLOR carpet tiles. I also love the fact that if we decide to change up the room configurations, it will be super simple to move the tiles around!
I hope this FLOR carpet tiles review gives you some new eco friendly and non toxic options for your next home project!
