only irritatingly noisy but can harm your wood floors. For high-traffic areas such as hallways, why not purchase a runner? There are many designs and colors available in varying price ranges depending on the quality. If you have ceramic tile in the kitchen, a small rug in front of the sink or around the breakfast table will help soften the blow of dropped utensils.

 

Carpet tiles are a great option, as you can build a rug any size you wish. Flor carpet tiles have a huge selection of about 1,000 tiles. Their website (www.flor.com) offers information and videos to guide you on what to pick and how to create a unique design, along with notes on care. Their video shows how to build the carpet using their adhesive dots to secure and join each tile.

 

In order to enjoy the look of your hardwood floors, you can assemble a pathway down your hall or along a busy traffic area as shown here. Called Be Cool in copper, this tile design can be placed in random directions to create the look you like. These modular carpet tiles can be added to at any time and cut to fit your space. They are made of saturated dyed nylon, durable and easy to clean.

 

Busy living areas get a major style lift with a one-of-a-kind carpet that you create to enhance your furnishings and style. Flor’s Boardwalk in kale has been built to complement a contemporary living space. It stretches in front of the balcony door to unify the area and is bordered by the wood floor. When redecorating, carpet tiles can be reassembled for another room or mixed with tiles that have a fresh color or design. You and your neighbors will be happy now.
