Happy Sunday you lovely lot!
I’m sharing a quick and easy way to update your home today with some peel and stick floor tiles!
You know how much I love a bit of a budget-friendly hack or upcycle – check out how I transformed this bathroom sink cabinet here!
I had actually been dying to try these peel and stick tiles out for well over a year now, but it took me a while to actually get around to it! I have to say, though, they were well worth the wait! I’m so impressed with the result – and all for less than £30, winner!
So without further ado, let’s get stuck in!
Why did I choose peel & stick tiles?
This isn’t our forever home and we’ve already spent some money re-doing the kitchen, so I was reluctant to spend *too* much money re-decorating other rooms – let me introduce to you, the peel and stick floor tiles!
For our bathroom floor, I needed 3 packs of tiles which came in at around £30. I could install them myself and the best part is they’re so easy and inexpensive to change if I change my mind in the future or potential buyers can easily take them up!
Where are they from?
I got mine from Dunelm – you can shop my exact ones here.
They had a decent range of designs and I read great reviews about them. If you’re after more options, below are some more websites that stock these tiles:
Were they easy to install?
So, I’ll be honest.
They were a *little* trickier to install than I imagined – but maybe that’s just me being naive, I’m not sure!
The floor tiles are pretty thick – which is obviously great as it makes them so much more durable, however, it also made them one hell of an arm workout to try and cut through!
I used a Stanley knife, which is recommended in the instructions, but I found it super hard to cut through, especially around awkward shapes.
Aside from this though, they were super easy to install!
I started by first placing the tiles from the center of the room outwards so I could work out the best layouts for cuts and pattern placement etc.
Then, simply peel and stick – literally what it says on the tin!
How have they held up?
So we’ve had these on our floor now for almost 6 weeks and they have held up amazingly.
This room gets used daily for the shower. In Winter I rarely have the window open when I shower as it’s so cold, and instead use the extractor fan, meaning the room is often full of steam and moisture. I was worried about this at first, but the tiles haven’t budged at all!
I also read online that caulking around the edges of the tiles helps seal them in place and protect the edges from lifting, so I will definitely be trying this soon too to improve their longevity.
Would I recommend peel & stick tiles?
If you have the budget or if it’s your forever home, I’d still recommend getting the real deal. However, if you’re on a budget, looking for a quick fix, or in a short-term/rental property, they are an amazing option to get the look of a real tile, without putting yourself out of pocket!
