The attraction: It is durable, easy to clean, it will NEVER unravel, it is spillproof, has a heavy rubber backing, does not require underpad, office chairs roll over it with ease, it will not squish down in heavy traffic areas, and can handle dampness & soiled shoes. Due to the heavy rubber backing, the soil will not seep through the carpet, so when you vacuum it, it really does get clean! Best of all, if a tile gets damaged, just make sure you have an extra few, and you pull 1 up, and replace it!Installation: It comes in a box, (tiles are around 20"x20") not a roll so it is easy to transport. It can be loose laid in smaller areas, glued down with a tacky glue, (for ease of replacing a tile), or you can apply tape to attach the 4 corners of 4 adjacent tiles together. Due to the fact it is so easy to handle, it makes it a dream for a DIY'er!
Design: It is completley customizable! You can do 2 colors in a checkerboard pattern, linear stripes down a room, a striped carpet tile can be laid all in the same direction, or alternate directions. the perimiter of a room can have a border. The possibilities are endless!
My Porch: So, my front porch has seen better days. It has its tidy moments, it has its untidy moments. It is the room where everyone comes in, and "drops" things. I was tired of the 1960's "pebble look" flooring. The porch currently has 1980's "hunter green" paint, which covers the panelling, & ceiling. (The paint stays till spring) I have a beautiful church pew in there somewhere!

& I installed it myself! Without screwing up!
I, me, moi! I did it!
I have never installed tile, or carpet...ever. It was so easy, any chump can do it!
I am WoMaN! Hear me roar.
A very proud moment for me.
My husband is very impressed. (& I am sure he is happy that he does not have to do it!)
And, it only took 3 hours! Sharing here:
