It's a temporary installation that won't leave a trace when you move out, there are lots of options for replacing old floors if you own your apartment, but if you're a renter and your landlord doesn't want to put in a new floor, you really don't have a whole lot Of options and that's why I was really excited to discover molecularity to house their vinyl tiles that you can install the traditional way with adhesive, but an option that you have with these tiles is to install them on an existing floor with double-sided tape. You put the stay on your existing floor, lay the tiles down and then when you're ready to move out, you just take the towels off and the tape comes off without leaving a trace on the original floor.
So when you move out, your landlord won't have a clue that you had a new floor in there. It's really amazing one of the first things you have to do before you install your tile is drawn reference lines on the floor. You pick a location, that's going to give you the best layout, and then you use a chalk line to mark the floor. Use blue chalk, it's much easier to clean up now. The reference lines are taken care of it's time to put on the tape. Markoff twelve inch increments along the edges of the walls, starting from the reference lines, and then you can line up your tape so that the joint Falls in the middle of it.
Like this, before you put down the tape, make sure that the floor is completely cleaned. Has no dust and dirt on it? I like to install the tape in one direction first and then install smaller sections in the other direction and uncovering the tape. One section at a time makes things much easier to manage, especially if you need to walk around the room. Otherwise, you might get stuck. I'm installing is a solid one, and really with this, you want to make sure that you install the first one perfectly aligned with the grid lines or the reference lines that you have on the floor. Otherwise, any little mistake that you make is just going to get repeated.
All the way down into the room - and it's just going to get magnified, so you want to make sure that you line it up very carefully with your grid lines or your reference lines that you've put down, and then you just press down really easy. Now. The next time I've got to install is one that has a frame and an insert. So you want to start off by putting down your frame, making sure that you align it really nice and snug next to the tile you've just put down press on three corners like this, and then you take your insert and you slide it in like that and You just press down and it'll fit nice and snug.
