Interior Design Following Trend to Modular Homes

FLOR Carpet Tiles Facilitate the Modern, Flexible Lifestyle

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Modular homes, pre-fab buildings that cost less -- but are no less beautiful -- than their traditionally built counterparts, are predicted to be the wave of the future.

Modular interior design components, as convenient as they are aesthetic, are an exciting part of the emerging trend, and can include walls, kitchens, furniture and flooring, such as popular FLOR carpet tiles.

Modular walls, one of the latest developments in residential interior design, enable you to create an additional room or change the shape of a space in minutes. Accordion-fold paper walls featured at the recent Dwell on Design conference could be shortened, lengthened, or even made into arcs and circles, at the whim of the home decorator.

Modular kitchens are all the rage, and can be configured to fit a room of almost any size or shape. Components include everything from cabinets, countertops and islands, to sinks, faucets and even appliances. Precut kits can be delivered and put together as a DiY interior design project and, sometimes, can even be taken with you when you move.

Modular furniture and accessories allow imaginative interior design at the drop of a hat. Anyone can easily change the look and feel of a room by simply reconfiguring sectional seating and shelving, and with modular walls on hand, instantly create a temporary den or guest room.

Flooring is one of the most adaptable, and fun, aspects of modular home interior design. For example, snap-together wood floors are easy to install, with just a few basic tools to cut floorboards to length and notch them around corners.

Even better, carpet tiles from FLOR are available in hundreds of colors and a wide variety of textures and patterns, allowing you to create custom wall to wall carpeting, area rugs, or runners, with no need for an interior design professional or installer.

The trend toward modular living accommodates the freedom and flexibility of our modern lifestyles, and is catching on with home owners and apartment dwellers of all ages.
