A new school year has begun. You bought your books, notebooks, and pencils, right? But did you finish decorating your dorms? If any of you’re still working on the final touches on your dorms, there is a great product that you could look into!
Triluc’s place and stick tile mats are a relatively new product from Japan. These mats are thin, square, made out of carpet-like material and have an adhesive on the back. The small (12 in x 12 in) size of these mats makes it easier to store, stack, and carry around compared to rugs and other floor mats. They don’t take up a lot of space, which leaves extra room to fill up your car with other important dorm essentials.
The small size of Triluc allows you to fit any area with any size or shape you want. As a result, there is no need to measure the area you’re working with or worry if the expensive rug you really want to buy just because it’s “cute” is going to fit.
Thankfully, Triluc mats are reusable. The adhesive on the back helps the mats stay in place no matter what. But when you want to remove the mats or rearrange them, they come off easily and don’t leave any residue. So when the semester ends, you don’t have to worry about cleaning or scraping off left over glue or tape five minutes before your dorm is going to be inspected. If you ever spill anything or stain them, you can easily wash them in a laundry machine (but let them air dry) and they will still stick to the floor!
Can you guess what the best part is? These mats come in thirteen colors! This gives you the option to create millions of patterns to make your dorm look more unique.
Triluc mats are not only helpful for you, but they could also work well with your pets! If you have hardwood floors all over your house, you can place these mats in your pets resting or play area. Because the mats don’t move while placed on the ground, you do not have to worry about your pet moving them all over the place or even slipping because of them. The carpet material can also help lock in pet fur and help with shedding issues around the house.
You can get your Triluc mats online at Amazon.com, Lowes.com, or Walmart.com for about $14.99 for a pack of four or between $25 and $30 for an eight pack depending on where you buy them. The price may seem a little bit steep for the amount of tiles you are getting, but they are definitely worth every penny.
