Good Questions: How do I soften Flor for my kid?

Sep 14, 2006

Hi AT,

My 10 month-old is couch surfing and falls a lot. We have Flor tiles in his room on top of hardwood floors, and we're finding that while they look great, they're not thick enough to cushion him when he falls. Can you put padding under Flor?

Thanks, RC

Hi RC,

We put your question to the Flor people, and here's what they said:

"Unfortunately, our tiles are designed for installation directly over the surface of your natural flooring. Therefore, you will not be able to use any type of padding or cushioning mechanisms to have the optimal performance from our product. You may want to consider our Modern Mix or Walking on Clouds tiles which are more plush and cushioning than our average FLOR tile."

So much for that. Any creative ideas out there for cushioning this tot's tumbles?
