This bedroom was originally a laundry room which meant it had linoleum flooring...which is awesome if your clothes washer starts to flood (been there & done that) but not completely cozy if it's your bedroom. Here is a before picture of the flooring...
So the amazing people over at FLOR tile company made sure that this little- bubble gum chewing, softball playing, tween had a floor fit for a queen. They were a HUGE sponsor for this makeover and I must say after using their product I'm now a modular carpet tile believer. Not only can you chose from some awesome patterns and colors (as well as mix and match them) but they are simple to lay down & easy to change out one tile in case you have a spill...simply genius! Here is the floor right before we laid the tile.
And here is how simple it is to lay Flor's carpet tiles. We first laid out a box of tile to establish our pattern. For this particular pattern called Dashed off- Jailbird we played around with two different ways to lay it. Parquet style
or long horizontal stripes.
I decided parquet style rocked my design socks off y'all..... They make it super simple with detailed instructions. You take one of their handy dandy sticky dots & place it on the floor. You use this dot to connect the corners of four tiles. Here is the Hubs demonstrating it so handsomely.... You then use a carpet knife to trim around the edges of your doorways. It really is an amazing product especially for little girls who lived with linoleum previously & want the coolest room ever. *Disclaimer You should TOTALLY TRY this project at home (take it from someone who used to be intimidated by the thought of installing flooring-not anymore).
And here is a bit of a sneak peek...
Seriously check out Flor tile and all of the patterns and colors they offer. These people were fantastic to work with, had stellar customer service and were so sweet to make this tween gals bedroom makeover better than she could ever imagine. I hope you all had a great weekend. I missed you guys last week and I am so ready to get back into the blog world. As for now I am off to bed. This designing Aunt is pooped! See you kiddos tomorrow!
