ac and are i deciding on flor tiles for the kitchen (i can't stand the tiles we have) so i've been spending a lot of time at the flor site. i love these two new patterns for fall: willow and fine vine. both are available in super saturated colors that would look fantastic in a small space. i'd imagine they might be a tad overpowering in a large room (but that's just my two cents...i'd love to see someone's home with a huge room of magenta vines). we'll probably end up with the shirt stripes pattern because i've already imposed upon ac with bright pink curtains (a guy can only take so much girlyness) but you can click here to view their entire collection. they've got some great new patterns for kids...

I love the FLOR tiles in my kitchen area. We have the Thick & Thin pattern in Evergreen - I laid them down parquet style. A kitchen is a great place for cheery stripes!

i have flor tiles in two rooms in my home and LOVE them! but in the kitchen, we have a chilewich rug -- which is great for spills. too bad their plynyl tiles are only available to the trade. i think those would be superb for covering an entire kitchen floor.

yes i'm confused, carpet in the kitchen? the whole thing? i know FLOR is great because you can swap out damaged tiles, but they're not cheap. is it a new trend? i've never seen carpet in a kitchen before other than small area rugs.

as far as i know carpet in the kitchen isn't a new thing. we have a tiny kitchen so it's a small 4 by 4 space. we don't really cook or spill a lot so it's practical for us. wouldn't be so practical in a professional kitchen, though ;)

i know you have a lot of designer friends who might just come in handy! the flor peeps were in my office a few weeks ago and informed me that designers get 20% off! i love the lemon tapete tiles.

i've got the commercial tiles (leftover work samples!) in my bathroom in a style similar to amazing lace, but less lacey. people don't think to put carpet tile in the kitchen or bathroom and to them i say... non-microbial!

I had a large area of my kitchen covered with 20 Flor tiles in my last apartment. They were great! Easy to clean (vaccuum), replace and I occaisionaly put the odd tile into the sink to clean - thanks to my dear pup.

have you seen Miyo Flooring from Armstrong? (Make It Your Own)
Same concept as Flor but in heavy vinyl perfect for kitchen spaces. I just ordered some and it's easy to install, very durable and great quality overall. they don't offer as many modern patterns, but seems to make more sense in a kitchen.
I love the roadway for a kid friendly play and craft room!

My roomate and I are looking for flor too. I like the new ones...except the lines in Shirt Stripe and Willow don't match up...that would give me a headache and/or drive me crazy.

I've been a huge fan of Flor for a few years now, but the price always struck me as a bit outrageous. After some research, i found a few places that sell small lots of commercial carpet tile, for as little as $1 a square foot. I'll be the first to admit that you have to do some looking to find the good stuff, but it's there.
iCarpet Tiles
Carpet Bargains
I will add that i've ordered from both companies and have had no complaints.

i may be a bit late in mentioning this, but I have 24 flor tiles in my living room, the thick and thin stripes in espresso/teal. I initially loved the look, but I must say, as a person who doesnt wear shoes in the house, the texture is like velcro. While wearing socks they actually stick to the tiles, and while wearing none they are just plain scratchy and very industrial feeling. The texture also lends itself to picking up lint and dust bunnies like you would not believe, and doesnt vacuum well at all. After vacuuming I have to get out a sticky roll to get the lint or little peices of string off of them. I know there are different textures available so I urge you to go into DWR or CB2 and actually touch them before you buy them, so you dont end up re-shopping and/or avoiding a room in your house completely. I highly regret my purchase.

I put the FLOR Fine Vine in the Red color in my living room, and I love it!
