New Fabric/New Find Friday #81

I just wanted to write a quick post to tell you about the cool flooring that we are going to use in the basement. After some discussion and compromise the hubby and I decided that this faux wood foam floor would be the way to go in the basement. You can take one tile out if something happens to it and if the basement leaks (which it has done A LOT) you can just pull these up, clean up and put them back down. They do not absorb the moisture and are soft and fun for kids to play on. Bonus they look like wood, ok maybe not really but hey they are better than bright red right?

You can go learn more about them here, this is where we hope to buy them from in a few weeks.

Here is a picture from their site of what a piece looks like.

We had two samples of the two different wood colors sent to us and we decided to go with the lighter color in hopes that when and if the surface gets scratched and dented you will not notice it as much since the foam backing is light.

I did talk to someone who has this in their house and they love it. Now they just use the space for a play room and probably do not have as much furniture as we plan to have but then again we are also going to put rugs over this. I am not too happy about the "foam texture" you can see in the picture above but hey marriage is all about compromise. :)

*I am never paid or perked when I show "new" finds. I just wanted to share something I think is cool with you!
