Question

Self-adhesive vinyl tiles and premixed grout from Home Depot


I realize I am a little late joining in this conversation, but I just bought self-adhesive vinyl tiles and premixed grout from Home Depot. I am planning on using them in my bathroom, but after reading various forums online I am concerned about future water damage. I am tempted to return the product and go for a full sheet of vinyl flooring rather than the tiles. Do you think the grout will help "waterproof" the tiles (or at least help them resist water)? I have also brushed on a self-stick tile primer to prep and seal the plywood to help with this. I am wondering how the tiles are holding up so far for those of you who have installed them?

I appreciate any feedback you can offer!

Sheet vinyl will last longer.

Sorry that I am a bit late joining in this conversation! I just bought similar self-adhesive vinyl tiles and premixed grout from Home Depot but have not installed them yet. I am planning on using them in my bathroom, but after reading various forums online I am concerned about future water damage. Do you think the grout will help "waterproof" the tiles (or at least help them resist water)? I have also brushed on a self-stick tile primer to prep and seal the plywood to help with this.

I appreciate your feedback! Please let me know how your vinyl tiles are holding up if you have them (Amybo, Missac34, TitaniumVT, Techprincesse)!
