We once became so disgusted with some dark, ugly, dirty industrial carpeting in an apartment's entry that we finally just ripped it out one day. We ended up putting down cheap strips of seagrass matting -- an enormous improvement -- but this ModuTiles Cork Flooring would have been a greener alternative.
Mio's 100% recycled cork tiles have so many possibilities. They can be used as custom rugs, or as wall-to-wall flooring. Treat them with waxes, oils, or stains. Use them on ceramic, linoleum, concrete, or wood. Install 'em temporarily, with peel-and-stick adhesive tabs, or permanently, using standard cork flooring adhesive.
$98 per set of 12 tiles (12 square feet), at Branch.
