one major problem area in our house is the kitchen table and floor. first of all, it is a dumping ground for everything. we are people that pile. no matter how hard i try not to, and how much i teach my little la las not to, it happens (i’ll take piler confessions in the comments section, this will make me feel better).
worse than the piling is the floor on the table, is the floor beneath it. it usually is a bad situation after dinner with 4 little ones. i had a shaggy rug for the longest time, which was good in theory to hide things but probably there were small animals living in that rug. i couldn’t take it any longer. several of you suggested FLOR via twitter. i have been a long distance admirer of FLOR for the longest time so i thought now was as good of time as any to try.
if you’re not familiar with FLOR they are carpet squares you piece together (however you like) to create a rug, runner or carpeted area. besides having some really rad designs, i have been ooing over the idea that you can replace squares as needed for sometime now. say, little number 3 decides to paint with spaghetti sauce on the floor or the puppy you are training finds your carpet the place he likes to go, than you can replace what is needed as needed. i think it’s a great solution to any type of mess.

do you find the kitchen table and floor beneath it to be a problem area for you? any great solutions that you’ve come across?
