We are getting a lot of enquiries from customers about reducing the noise problems with hard floors such as laminate, solid wood and slate.
Carpet tiles are a great solution to the problem of noisy floors as you can simply lay the tiles on top of the hard floor (as long as the hard floor is fairly level).
Here you can see a coloured runner created on top of stone tiles. The FLOR tiles are simply stuck down with some double sided tape and this has reduced the noise problem in a big way. These are not permanent so they can be changed around or lifted as and when desired without damaging the hard floor below. Also there is no need to worry about slips and trips as the low height of the tiles means this is not a problem.
This 'rainbow runner' was created using various colours from the FLOR by heuga Tender Touch and PuzzlePieces ranges.
