Installing Floor Pops Peel & Stick Floor Tiles, Step-by-Step
I’m going to break down step by step how we installed our peel and stick Floor Pops tiles for our bathroom makeover…
Step 1: Prepare the Floor
The first step is to remove any existing flooring that you don’t want to keep. In our case, we had linoleum that was climbing up the vanity, so we used a utility knife to cut a line and pull it all off. There was also some wood underneath that we had to chip off using a screwdriver and a hammer. Once you’ve removed the old flooring, use a broom and a cleaner (we used a mix of Lysol and water) to sweep and clean the floor thoroughly.
Step 2: Choose Your Tiles
Before you start the project, it’s a good idea to research the different peel and stick tile options available. We looked on Amazon and Lowe’s and ultimately decided to go with the Floor Pops styles from Amazon, as they were quick delivery and the price was right. However, it’s important to note that Lowe’s and Home Depot also have peel and stick tile options, so be sure to check those out as well.
Step 3: Measure and Plan
Once you have your tiles, it’s time to measure and plan the layout of your floor. The tiles we used were 12 by 12 inches, and each box contains 10 tiles. We recommend buying an extra box or two to allow for any errors or mistakes. Before sticking anything down, lay out all the tiles and make sure they align correctly and that the designs match up. This is also a good time to notch out any areas around doorways or other obstacles.
Step 4: Start Installing
We started installing the tiles in the entryway, making sure to center the first tile and align it with the existing laminate flooring in the hallway. The hardest part of this project was getting around the doorway, as it required cutting notches out of the tiles to fit around the frame. However, with a little patience and persistence, we were able to get it done.
As we continued to install the tiles, we made sure to double-check that every tile matched correctly, so that the floor would have a seamless look. Also, you should use a pen, a utility knife and angle to make the cuts on the tiles.
Step 5: Finish Up
After installing all the tiles, we went back and checked for any gaps or uneven areas. The adhesive on the back of the tiles is very forgiving, so we were able to lift and adjust any tiles that weren’t quite right. We also didn’t remove the baseboards, as they were old and we plan on replacing them anyway.
The final result is a beautiful and modern bathroom floor that cost us less than $55. The Floor Pops tiles were easy to install, and the adhesive has held up well with no issues. If you’re looking to update your bathroom floor on a budget, we highly recommend giving peel and stick tiles a try.
In conclusion, this is a great way to update your bathroom floor without breaking the bank. With a little bit of planning and patience, you can achieve the look for less!
A few additional tips:
- Make sure to clean the floor thoroughly before installing the tiles. Any dirt or debris can prevent the adhesive from sticking properly.
- Use a level to ensure that the tiles are being installed correctly and that they’re not uneven.
- If you’re installing the tiles over an uneven surface, you may need to use a leveling compound to smooth out the floor.
- Take your time when cutting the tiles to fit around obstacles like doorways and fixtures. Measure twice and cut once to ensure a perfect fit.
- Consider adding a sealant over the top of the tiles for added protection against water and stains.
- If you are not comfortable with the installation you can hire a professional to do the job for you.
- If you have any issues with the tiles not sticking, you can get a roller to press down on the adhesive and ensure a good bond.
- Experiment with different tile designs and patterns to create a unique look for your bathroom.
