If you're not ready to rip up your current flooring but you cannot bear to look at the state of it any longer we may have the solution for you. Quadrostyle offers tile stickers & tile panels to cover smooth floors, such as vinyl laminate, linoleum, parquet or sealed concrete. Although not a permanent solution, they can endure a few years with simple care.

They're a breeze to install & if any areas get damaged you can easily peel them off and replace them with a new stickers. These are a renters dream com true because they don't damage the surface of the floor. You can peel them off without any gummy residue left behind. 

before

Lauren's laundry floor was covered with vinyl sheeting. This is an ideal surface to cover with vinyl decals as its completely smooth & waterproof. So, if you have a floor like this don't tear it up yet!

There's almost no prep work. All that was needed was to give the floor a thorough cleaning. Lauren opted to use the 8" tile squares, but you can use the larger floor panels too. What's the difference I hear you say? When you install the tile squares you'll have more joins than when you lay the panels, and laying each one perfectly aligned takes some patience.

Before you start to apply the stickers you'll need a straight line. In Lauren's case she followed the lines on the vinyl floor. If you don't have a guide like this use a string line & draw a straight line. Remember not all walls are straight, especially old houses, so be sure to check. You don't want to get to the other side of the room & realize that they're uneven.

thin but tough

The vinyl decals are less than 1mm thick. While that doesn't sound very solid they're laminated to take some serious wear & tear. Best thing about their thickness is you can easily cut them using a cutter or a razor. Tip: Make sure the blade is sharp.

And because these stickers are thin they'll slide under any door or appliance. They're not flimsy, the vinyl is smooth and underfoot they have a soft feel to them.

trimming tip
Got a tricky area to trim around? Make a template using paper or cardboard & transfer this shape to the tile sticker. Use a pair of scissors to cut the shape out.

slide your appliances carefully

Take great care returning your appliances over your new floor. Often the bases of our white goods have metal feet which can tear the vinyl stickers. We recommend applying felt pads to the feet of your appliances. Gently glide them back into place.
