I'm very excited about these carpet tiles by Flor. You may have noticed their adds recently on the web -even on this little blog.
The cool thing about these squares is that they are made out of 80% recycled materials, are easy to lay down (and pull up), no need for under pads, or professional installation. There are probably cheaper carpeting alternatives but I found it hard to nail down prices for comparison shopping and of course the in-home estimates hassle. So we went with the eco-friendly, do-it-yourself product. And when we tire of the color/pattern, we can ship them back and the tiles will get recycled again!
I was able to find an Affiliate Code for a 15% first purchase discount on the web, which was gladly accepted by the individual taking my order. I went ahead and called their toll-free number instead of their online ordering system. The ordering part took all of 3 minutes - what color, how many tiles, what's your address and credit card number.
