Here is where the laundry room is right now. The art is hung. I have hung place holders for hooks and mirrors on each side of the symbol art.
It’s always good to tape things off before buying to get an idea of scale. When it comes to things that hang on a wall, using packing paper is a great way of checking the scale and shape.
I still need to get the hooks, mirrors, benches, chandy and rug. So, I figured I would spend some time considering the type of rug I could get. With the space being 19.5 feet long, it’s not easy to find a runner rug that accomodates the length of the room. So, I am contemplating floor tiles.
Are you familiar with FLOR tiles? Carpet tiles are a great way to create your own area rug size. And, if you feel spills are inevitable, a single tile can be replaced which is more cost effective than replacing an entire rug.
I’m not 100%, but I’m thinking 7 of the 19.7 x19.7 inch tiles. That will span approximately 11.5 feet which will leave 4 feet on each end uncovered. But, just as I advise all clients, I will tape off the floor before ordering.
I love this pattern, but at $30 a tile, it may be a little too pricey for a laundry room.
These are also nice at $22 a tile. But, again, I’d like to go a little cheaper if possible.
Of course, we could keep it simple with a solid. It’s $21 a tile which is about 19.7 x19.7 inches.
At $15 a tile, this is nice. It’s a soft and subtle pattern.
I really like the texture on this one for $13 a tile. Aren’t those boots fab?
I really like these black ones at $10 a tile. If I order 7, that is just $70.
And, it is a lot like my original drawing. (Having said that, almost all designs will be tweaked between drawing and implementation.)
The company just released its new Fall collection. Here are a few from that collection.
If you loved Target’s Missoni collection this one reminds me of it.
There is just about every color you can imagine and quite a number of patterns available.
I think my first step will be getting a sample so I can physically see it in the room. Have you used FLOR tiles? What did you think of them? What would you use in my laundry room?
