Our laundry room floor finally got a makeover….
The best part? It was easy to install ourselves (only took about an hour), NO construction was involved AND it was very affordable.
We used vinyl tiles from Floor Adorn that we simply applied over our existing flooring. Honestly, I had been skeptical about peel and stick tile in the past but Floor Adorn has changed my mind!
After seeing the floor tiles in person at the International Home and Housewares show, I couldn’t wait to give them a try in our own home. I had just missed HGTV filming at Floor Adorn’s booth ~ if you are a fan of HGTV, you will probably be seeing more of these soon 🙂
I’m sharing some details on our experience with the tiles, answering a few questions, and including a link below to purchase too!
But first, here’s a few photos from our little laundry room photo shoot.
PS. our laundry room is never this clean haha so had to document while it lasted!!
Here are answers to some of the questions I had (and questions I received after posting the install on instagram stories):
How durable are the tiles?
They have held up great for us so far! They are designed for high traffic areas so I expect they will last awhile.
How was the installation process?
EASY. It literally took just over an hour to do the entire floor. The only tricky part was cutting the tiles around a couple awkward corners. I used an X-ACTO knife a ruler to help.
How do they look in person?
I’ve shown them off to a few family members and friends and EVERYONE has been shocked at how good they look in person. Unless you get up close, you would think these were real tile.
The Floor Adorn tiles are thin (like a heavy sticker) but you wouldn’t be able to tell at all once they are on the floor.
I’ve had a cement floor tile sample with a similar pattern sitting in our laundry room for over a year (seriously, maybe almost 2 years!!). I finally was able to achieve the look I wanted without having to rip out the flooring and install the cement tiles.
Will it ruin the floors?
We installed this over a linoleum floor which a very smooth and durable surface. I was able to easily pull the tiles up and reposition them. No damage at all. I’ve tested them on our wood floors too and can’t imagine how they would damage those. The tiles are created to be removable and not ruin any type of flooring.
Now on to the most asked questions…
How much did this project cost?
They are $59 for a set of 6. Above, I used a total of 36 tiles. The laundry room is 7’x8′ but since the washer and dryer cover a good portion, I was able to get away with only using 36 total.
Where can I purchase?
