FLOR: Fun Modular Floor Covering

Installing modular carpet tiles

Restoration Diary, , ,

We needed an odd sized rug to fit underneath our desk, something durable that could stand up to lots of wear. FLOR carpet tiles fit all of our criteria, plus they come in multiple shades, textures and fun patterns.

FLOR samples

I ordered samples to see which worked best in our office.

It’s a plaid, plaid world

We chose a grey plaid called Pop Tartan.

Attaching FLOR dot

The tiles are held together by adhesive stickers called Flor dots. It is as easy as peeling the backing off the Flor dot and attaching it to the back of the tile.

The tile is lined up and dropped into place. Easy!


It took us 15-20 minutes to install the carpet. Now all we have to do is finish moving into the office.

    Nice! We did Flor in our basement (ona dricore subfloor) and we love it.

    Nice to catch up via your blog again, it’s been a while!

    Nice. We did a similar thing with our basement office. Wondering – do yours separate near where the chair rolls back and forth over it? Ours is always coming apart. Just curious.

      No, ours is really holding up well. Maybe any wear on our rug is less obvious because of the pattern?
