Hello, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement, and this is "how to install groutable vinyl tile." What's really cool is they came up with this vinyl tile that you put a real grout in there to make it look just like a ceramic tile. For this job, you will need something to use as a straight edge. I'm gonna use my level as a straight edge. You will also need a tape measure, and a pencil. First thing you need to do is find the exact center of your room and put an X there, that way, when you go it all the way to the wall, you aren't gonna be losing your tiles into the wall and end up with just little pieces going into full tiles. We'll measure out, put a mark, jump over, put another mark. Then, we'll take our straight line, put it on our two marks, and go ahead and mark the floor. Then, we'll do the same thing from the other wall. Now, where those two lines intersect is gonna be the epicenter of the room. That's where we're gonna run everything from, so you gotta make sure that those are nice and square. After that, we're gonna peel the back off of our first tile. Then, we'll take our tile and match up with our lines, and we'll push it down into place. Now, we'll take our next tile. As you see here, they've already pre-put our grout lines in there, so we gotta make sure that the ones without the grout lines are going to the tile that's already installed with our grout lines. So, we'll take it down here, match it up, lay it down. Then, we'll take our next tile, putting the grout line against the side that doesn't have one. Make sure it's nice and straight, go ahead and sit it down into place. Using peel and stick tiles allows you to install your tile floors a lot faster, and they're also a lot easier to replace if one gets damaged. Thank you all for watching. Good luck with this project!
