hey how’s it goin I’m coming at you
today from the small bathroom of our small rental home and today I’m going to
work on adding peel and stick vinyl tile to the floor the floor in this
bathroom is painted wood but not like hardwood nice wood it seems like it’s
almost like the subfloor that they just didn’t ever add anything to and just
painted over time and so it’s terrible and there’s chunks coming out of it
there’s divots in it and basically with all the moisture that happens in a
bathroom with a shower in the bathtub it has started to kind of rot so because
of all of the issues with the actual flooring I’m going to start by smoothing
the floor with this premix patching level flooring and smoothing compound
it’s sort of like the mud that you would act to a wall over a hole or to repair
sheetrock except for it specifically for floors and it’s self levelling so you
should be able to add it all in there smooth it out and let it dry and then
that will give me an even surface and once I have an even surface I’m going to
add this really fun vintage inspired black and white peel and stick vinyl
tile it’s not so it’s like a giant sticker now I’m not like a licensed
contractor I’m just a good old fashioned home DIY er and so I’m not gonna say
that anything that I’m doing is correct or the way that you should do it or
anything but I just wanted to share the experience because I think that a lot of
us have small problems or issue places in our foam we’re a little DIY can make
a big improvement so don’t feel nervous if you’ve never done anything like this
before or if you’re not I was super duper handy person I think that you’ll
be able to figure this one out it’s just laying giant stickers on the floor so we
got this so before I get started I thought I’d just give you a quick visual
tour of the space when we first looked at the house and decided to rent it the
bathroom was pretty sad everything in the whole house in fact
this kind of beige yellow color there were all sorts of odd pieces of hardware
that had gone up in the bathroom I started taking things down and added a
nice fresh coat of white paint which made a huge difference I just got in
here with the sprayer sprayed the walls the ceiling and I think that with the
white paint some new hardware and shelving and the floor everything is
going to be looking pretty awesome as good as it’s gonna get for now and I’m
definitely a lot better than it was so to get started I’m just gonna use this
premix passion level and start adding it to the divots in the floor once I get it
all smoothed out I can wait for it to dry and when I have a nice level surface
I can start laying this peel-and-stick tile okay so I’ve got the floor putty
down and it’s pretty close to level it’s not going to be perfect in this
situation but it is definitely a lot smoother and more level than it was
before we started so I’m just gonna wait for it to dry for a couple hours and
then I can come back in and start putting down that vinyl tile with the
pre-mixed flooring already installed now I have a pretty solid base to begin
laying my tile so this peel-and-stick tile is pretty
amazing it’s like a giant sticker and all you have to do is peel back the
paper backing and then stick it to the floor the instructions on the tile box
itself recommend that you start in the center point of the room so then you
have really even lines starting from the center going out to all of the edges and
that’s going to work in here I probably only have four tiles that will actually
make it down on the floor in the center in here because the room is so small
before I start having to cut and so I’m gonna start laying them down and then
I’ll show you how I like to cut around the edges so that they fit around the
toilet and into kind of the little little bits here and there I just peeled
off one tile filled off all of the paper backing and then found the I’m actually
following the lines from where these previous sort of wood tiles are on the
floor in here and so I just laid it down flat I’m gonna press it in and then
started on the next one I’ve laid pieces down even over my mixed flooring filler
here and it’s not totally perfectly flat but it’s gonna work and it seems like
it’s still sticking okay over here here’s a spot right here by the toilet
where the full tile is not gonna work and so what I’m doing and again this
might not be the most perfect method but I’m kind of just bending the tile up so
that I get a feel of where exactly it’s gonna go and then I’ll pull this piece
off and cut along that edge so that it fits pretty tightly to the toilet itself
I’m just cutting with regular scissors and this tile is so thin that it works
just fine so this piece has gone down with a little bit of space between the
toilet bottom and the title and once I get all of the pieces in I’ll just add a
little bathroom caulking around the edges and that should help on straight
edges like this one next to the bathtub a tape measure can be really helpful to
just know exactly where you need to make your cut on your tile one trick that you
can use for some of the tricky kind of windy corners and places where you’re
gonna have to cut the tile is to use a regular piece of printer paper and match
up the corners as if it were the tile and then kind of fold it along the edges
I’m doing that here around the door frame so that I can see exactly where
I’m going to need to cut working with the paper is a lot easier than trying to
bend the tile itself and in this way I can cut the paper so it fits well and
then I can use it as a pattern to cut my tile I have all of the pieces of tile
laid in but there’s still lots of work to do around all of the edges now that
I’ve got all of the vinyl tile laid I’m going to go ahead around all of the
edges and add some bathroom caulk that will help keep the moisture out from
under the tile and it will also help keep all of these little edges in place
and then I will be able to celebrate with this new very inexpensive
super cute bathroom floor

    How did you do the trim around the tub? It's super cute with the black/white checkerboard look. Is that quarter round you've painted to match?

    it is accurate cut. But the corner around the door frame needs more adjustment. How should it be cut more precisely?

    You should put down a sub floor first, because the other floor has had better days, also pull the tank and make a nice neat job.

    Cute floor, but it would be worth it to pull the toilet, and the trim, and it you watch other videos they tell you how to mark the tiles to cut them on the edges to make a very close to edge cuts

    Great job! I would to avoid having such a short "tilte" up against the tub, pulled the tiles a little further back, so that the uneven tile could be a little more equal on both sides 🙂

    We wish we had renters like you. But we try to make sure things are nice before letting people rent. We are getting ready to put stick tiles over our linoleum in our bathroom that I 13 years old an bit old looking.

    I've done this in our downstairs bathroom and it looks amazing. For the silicone around the edges to can use white black or clear..whites good as it's blends in & clear good also if you get one that doesn't yellow.. it looks that good I want to extend it right into our kitchen. Was wondering what is the best floor sealant to put right over the whole floor? Does anyone know? It would gloss it up and keep the cracks totally water proof. Thought the tiles seems pretty long lasting anyway.

    Next time you should really rent a 100 lb roller and use it when you are finished laying the tiles. Only way to get good adhesion as the adhesive is pressure sensitive.

    The toilet unbolts from the floor, if its bolted on even at all.. then you can rock it left or right and slip the tile under it which would be a better way to do it.

    I was wondering how to place the tile around the base of the toilet. (I can't disengage the toilet from the wall because I live in a rental AND I placed caulk around the base because their was too much of an gap and it was giving off a smell.😣

    I would have taken up the toilet and put a new seal ring under, as if old, it may have a small leak, causing the flooring to rot. Also is cleaner. probably would have removed old flooring as well.
