FLOR Carpet Tiles REVIEW via Carbon Environmental Boutique #YEG

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! Finding the right carpet for your home can be an exciting time, especially if you want to make it perfect, there are so many different places to find the type of carpet you are looking for, for example, somewhere like Carpet Now – Carpet Installation could be good place to begin your search.

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.

  1. One of my colleagues told me about getting FLOR Carpet Tiles for my new house. I went with his suggestion and the results were astonishingly great so I will be recommending it to others.

  2. Hi, I have flor carpet tiles in my dinning as area rug, they have been good and no offgasing I noticed. but looking at adding wall to wall and wondering your thoughts with recycled plastic, I believe they are made of, with babies or pets being on them.

    • Different FLOR tiles are made with different materials, so definitely look at the materials for the ones you are considering. I don’t have a problem with textiles made from recycled plastics as I also have clothing and shoes made from recycled plastics.

  3. I installed a Flor area rug under my dining room table and have found that the glue dots are not holding. My rug has double borders (it came pre-cut) and one of the border sections was poorly cut with shedding edges making installation very difficult. The separating is very disappointing because it means that the rug has to be put back together over and over. I have just discovered others on the Viewpoints website who have had similar problems with the product. Wish I had found that information before I ordered. I am thinking about just sticking it together with carpet tape even though Flor says to only use their glue dots.

    • Have you tried contacting FLOR? I’m pretty sure they would send you more glue dots! I’m not sure about the border sections shedding, though, I would definitely ask them about that!
