    It can be tough to get them to stick because vinyl flooring is usually textured. The first thing to do is clean the viny. Then use a primer speciffically made for flooring and prime the vinyl. The primer I used was very much like waterbased poly.

  • We have used peel and stick tiles, and they're not the greatest. Instead we opted for LVT (luxury vinyl tile) that is adhered to the floor with glue and then grouted. It has been a million times better, and no issues with tiles popping up off of the existing vinyl floor beneath.

    You can do this easily if you clean the underlying vinyl completely and don't stack the new tiles directly over the existing lines/tile edges. You want to stagger the new lines on top of the tiles, not over the existing lines/seams.

    I have been looking for a new kitchen floor for awhile now. If you are using the peel and stick tile for a quick fix or vacation property then go for. However, the new vinyl plank flooring is a much better option for a longer lasting floor. Even laminate flooring is better than peel and stick. The floor covering store I went to was going to sell us an underlayment to go over our old "linoleum" sheet flooring. The vinyl plank would go over that. We are afraid to try to pull up the linoleum because it might have asbestos in it. Have you considered just painting your floor? That is what I want to do but my floor is 50 years old and breaking up badly in places. There are articles on how to paint a floor on the internet.

    Hi Deedee, prep you floor properly, and make sure it is nice and level, fill in any big dents and dips with drywall filler. Hope this video helps you out
