DIY Grouted Vinyl Tiling

After weighing our options for bathroom flooring, we decided to try vinyl tiling with grout between to give it the appearance of genuine tile. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out, how easy it was and how inexpensive the entire project was!

Got a question about this project?

    Be cautious! Vinyl tiles, like vinyl sheet flooring, can raise along edges. Quarter round installed at baseboards prevents this on the sheet vinyl. Hopefully the grout serves the same purpose......your floor is lovely!

    Thanks for the reminder Dianne--we made sure to really get it to stick and have put baseboard over the top. Seems to be holding up really well. The kind we got is a lot thicker and heavier duty than the cheap roll out kind.

    Also, don't forget that grout is not water proof on it's own and in a bathrom especially, you'll want to put down a sealer...LOL I have all boys, so all I can think of is the mess they always made...LOL YUCK!
    BUT I do love the job you did and how

    Tho't of doing this myself, but was afraid the grout wouldn't be thick enough to keep from cracking after a bit. How long has it been since you did this? Also, did you leave extra space between the tiles to allow for more grout? Thanks!
