We’ve done two floors that would be great. Peel and stick vinyl tile: https://www.frugalfamilytimes.com/2012/07/how-to-install-peel-and-stick-vinyl.html
And luxury vinyl tile - wood look. Both look amazing and have held up for years!
Betty,. But the peel n stick 12x12 tiles. They can cost room $.99 to $5.99 each. Most boxes have 20 tiles, so at $.99, that would be $20. You start in the middle of the floor and work your way out to the walls. Measure the room, then take the measuring to a carpet and tile store, I prefer Home Deport. They'll let you know how many boxes you need. Each tile has arrows on the back to show you how to lay them down. When and if you purchase tile, make sure the lot #s on all the boxes are the same. If not, you can get different shades of color on different tiles. Aloha!
