If you’re installing peel-and-stick tile, make sure that the surface you’re covering is properly prepared. If it’s a smooth floor, you may need to use floor grinders or sandpaper to roughen it up. If the floor is too smooth, use a fine-grit grinder.
Before attempting to install peel-and-stick tile over vinyl flooring, take a few things into consideration. First, you need to ensure that your room is wide enough to accommodate the tile. If the room is small, you may not be able to cover it completely. Therefore, you should consider purchasing additional tiles. If you have a large room, you may want to purchase a larger sheet of tile to cover the space.
After determining the width of your room, lay out the tiles. If you plan to place curved tiles, you should measure the space. Once you have the exact measurements, you can cut the tiles to fit. Remember to adhere them in the right orientation. Do not try to bend, press, or flex the tiles too much because they can stretch or break.
Another consideration when installing peel-and-stick flooring is the type of subfloor that you have. If you have a completely level floor, peel-and-stick tile will adhere more easily. But if your subfloor isn’t smooth, you can consider installing a self-adhesive vinyl floor first. It’s cheaper and easier to install than tile. However, you’ll need to spend some time preparing the floor so that the tile will adhere properly.
