Stick to the floor

Now, thanks to magnetism, floor tiles can be as easily changed as a rug.

A US company called Artistic Tiles has developed a system of floor tiles that need no mortar or grout or other sticky stuff to stick to the floor.

Instead, the tiles are attached a flexible rubber steel or galvanized sheet metal that lies between between the concrete, or whatever the floor is made from.


You can rip up the floor and change it when ever you feel like changing the color from brown, to black and white cow spots.

Perhaps if you walked on such a floor wearing these you might find yourself rooted to the spot.
