What is the best way to install peel and stick tile in a mobile home?
By Laura from Lafayette, LA
I would advise you to buy some floor adhesive at Lowe's or Home Depot and brush it on the plywood flooring before laying your tiles. Follow directions on the can of adhesive before laying your peel and stick tiles. The peel and stick tiles will not adhere properly if you don't use floor adhesive.
Find the center of the floor, lay 4 tiles in a square and work from the middle of your floor to the outer perimeter. You can always cut your tiles to fit next to the baseboards.
Go to Google and search for a website that shows you how to properly lay a floor.
We used peel and stick on a small bathroom over linoleum. The above info is the proper way to do it, but if you have an older mobile (like ours) 12 ft. wide, then cabinets and a long outside wall, here is my suggestion.
Lay out your tiles along the wall and work toward the cabinets, as this is the most seen area. Cut to fit under the cabinets. If you have molding down the wall and under cabinets, remove and discard. You really need to buy new to put over the tiles. If you are applying over plywood or a very bumpy textured linoleum then buy adhesive, otherwise super clean and extra super rinse the floor.
