One Tile Wide Flor Runner

This picture may look familiar if you've seen our recent house tour (Kyle's Jamaica Plain Gem, 1 Year Later). (Familiar but not identical...we've already made some tweaks to this hallway spot!) Many months ago, we had some extra Flor tiles and decided to use them...

To create a simple floor runner in our small back hallway, the intersection between the kitchen, dining room, bathroom, and two bedrooms. Since we decided to lay down only a one-tile wide runner, we opted to put the runner off center. Had we centered the runner, the proportions would have made the runner look much too small for the width of the space. We like the result; it feels like more of an askew graphic element on the floor than a runner per se. It's pretty adorable watching Arlo, our dog, intentionally staying on the runner when he wanders through the hallway, never deviating from the off-center path.

We used Flor's Fedora tiles in Chartreuse for this runner, which is one of their cheapest styles. This is a simple, affordable way to introduce color in a surprising spot.
