Instead of searching endlessly for the perfect area rug, create your own colorful look with carpet tiles. You can achieve a big look on a small budget by going modular; just six FLOR® tiles can make a roughly 3’ x 5’ rug or a narrow 10-foot runner, and the individual tiles can cost as little as $8 apiece. Shown is the FLOR style House Pet, which comes in a rainbow of hues and can stand up to heavy foot traffic.

Designers used the Flor carpet squares as a jumping off point for the space's color, bringing in a gray sofa and green armchairs to complement the carpet. A gray bench provides additional seating while keeping the room open to the entryway and dining spaces.
Bright colors and layered patterns result in a kids' room with plenty of fodder for the imagination. Sheets and wallpaper by Serena and Lily provide instant pop, while a contemporary bunk bed leaves plenty of space for two brothers to play. FLOR tiles can be easily cleaned or replaced as needed.
Complementary shades of bright blue and dusky orange add both interest and coziness to this open-plan dining space. Rustic beams combine with contemporary track lighting overhead, while industrial Flor tiles anchor the dining space underfoot.
Pattern mixing is a designer's trick for bringing motion and depth into a space. From the overscaled, lattice-like shape of the FLOR tiles to the diamond stripes of the duvet cover to the geometric print of the throw pillows, pattern is used to draw the eye up from the ground, onto the bed and up to the abstract art.
This master bedroom seen on HGTV's Kitchen Cousins is a good example of how to turn old into new, without spending a lot of money.

Complementary shades of blue and orange decorate this inspired dining space. Orange carpet tiles by Flor anchor the eating area, which features a long, rustic-industrial table matched with chairs in two metallic finishes, as well as a whimsical outdoor bench repurposed with bold blue paint and custom cushions.

Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
Wall-to-wall storage and a tucked-in beverage center adds tons of function in this media room, while a whitewashed wood feature wall offers texture and visual interest, The homeowner wanted something completely custom and durable so that his young children could play freely in the space, so designer Blu Interiors selected custom furniture made with durable fabrics and a rug created from FLOR carpet tiles, which are easy to wash and replace as needed. The homeowner is from Atlanta, and the ATL marquee lights are a fun way to show off his hometown pride.
To keep the high-contrast look of the dark blue and the bright white consistent throughout the bedroom, its existing plantation shutters were kept white to tie together the chunky molding as well as the white seen in the FLOR carpet tiles. Plantation shutters are a great way to add privacy and architectural interest to a room.
The timeline for the redesign of the room was six days, due mostly in part to the quick installation of the floor. FLOR carpet tiles were installed after the existing wall-to-wall carpet was removed along with its padding. All that was needed for installation was a utility knife with extra blades as well as an L-square.
