Grouted Vinyl (Peel & Stick) Tile

40,132 Views
We choose to put peel and stick tile in our master bathroom update for a few reasons. 1. It fit the budget 2. We had never done any type of floor venture and we figured it would be easy to get our feet wet with it 3. We plan on doing a complete overhaul in the bathroom in 5 years or so.
I'll tell you a bit about how we did things.Step one : Rip up carpet, all tack strips and staples.Step two: Vacuum plywood and then dry brush it (there are some recommendations for chemical cleaning agents, but we didn't use any)Step 3: Figure out placement (brick pattern or other, etc.)Step 4: Peel backing off and start laying the tile. Press firmly on each tile. We used a rolling pin on some and then used our feet on others.Step 5: Use a razor knife to score any tiles that need to be "cut".Step 5: Grout (Making sure to sponge off excess to eliminate the "fog")Step 6: Let dry.Enjoy.* So, we have had this in our house for over a year and it looks great. See more details on our blog.
Time: 6 Hours Cost: $100 Difficulty: Medium
You can't tell that it's peel and stick tile. The grout lines really make the floor look like real tile.
Before: Carpet After: Putting down tile with spacers
The floor really made the bathroom.
Bathroom as it is now.

    Looks wonderful ! I did the same to our bathroom, but did not ad the grout and added adhesive for extra "stick" . It's been over a year now and it still looks like new ! Peel -N- Stick, who woulda thought :)

      @Lisa McDaniel We debated on adding extra adhesive. We ended up going the easier route...hope we don't regret it.

    Great article ... the important thing for laying vinyl tile is that the floor surface it is attached to must be smooth. You have done a great job you bathroom looks great.They surely look like real tile.

    We did this in a home we lived in and the addition of group makes the tiles look like the real thing. Great job!
