If you’re ready to give your floors a face lift but aren’t quite ready to rip the current ones to shreds, then peel and stick vinyl floor tile might be just the DIY solution you need.
A few years ago, I gave our boring and beige laundry room a makeover using peel-and-stick vinyl floor tile, and I’m still pleased with the results. I can’t express just how happy I was to get rid of the outdated linoleum the previous owners installed. Ick.

What is peel-and-stick vinyl floor tile?
There’s lots to like about peel-and-stick vinyl floor tile: it’s fairly inexpensive, can be placed directly over existing flooring, and is pretty simple to install without hiring a professional. It’s basically vinyl flooring that comes in tiles. It makes it much easier to install than long sheets of vinyl flooring.
Is peel-and-stick vinyl floor tile any good?
There’s no one-size-fits-all to this question — it really depends on the type of project you’re tackling. Consider the shape of the room you want to tile, the material of the existing flooring, and how heavily trafficked the room is.
