I'm attempting to make a few updates in the girls' room this winter, and the first one has a lot to do with one of my New Years resolutions: de-clutter, de-clutter, de-clutter (3 times for emphasis!)... let's hope I follow through with that one. We all, and especially the girls, seem to accumulate a lot of STUFF throughout the year, which obviously doesn't make a whole lot of sense in a small NYC apartment.
But more on that later! Another update needed is flooring for their room. As you can see, I've been using their old play mat and nursery rug together since we moved, and while it has worked fine, I've been on the hunt for one rug to bring the whole room together. Enter FLOR carpet tiles!
The FLOR tiles I selected (they offer rugs as well, but tiles are a great option for kids' areas) have really brightened and brought the girls' room together, and here's why I love them for kids:
First, fun designs. While the packaging tells you in which direction the tile should be placed, you can lay them down any way you like, creating a design that's wholly unique, just like your kiddo. The tiles themselves are durable, washable, but if you can't get a stain out - they're replaceable, too! And if you send the tile back for them to replace, they'll recycle it back into a future tile for someone else. I love that the company is committed to environmentally-friendly practices, too.
While you attach with a sticker to the bottom of each tile, connecting them together, they're easy to take apart, too, if you decide to move it. In fact, it was a fun project to do with the girls -- they really had fun deciding which tile to lay down next!
And so, the finished product... so happy with this clean, modern design. I gravitated away from pink & purple, as I imagine we'll have the rug for a while and they might not always love those colors QUITE as much as they do now. Luckily, FLOR has tons of fun colors and designs to choose from in a variety of sizes.
What a simple way to make a fun new update. Absolutely recommend checking out FLOR!
Next up... bigger table & chairs. Little legs are growing like weeds around here!
