groutable vinyl tile


I agree with you. It is a crazy idea.

1. Peel & stick will not stick very well vertically. It's pressure sensitive so it needs gravity plus your traffic for it to stick.

2. Vinyl tiles in wet areas will not hold up. They will shrink and expand even if you could get them to bond well.

3. That "Formica" might be a plastic laminate like Formica brand, but it's probably just a melamine board. How would you finish the edges and corners?

4. Did I mention peel & stick is for floors and not for walls?

Tell us more.

Jaz
