- No glue - just pull the paper backing off and stick them down!
- No grout - unless you want to. Vinyl tiles are grout-able but it isn't a requirement.
- No special tile cutter necessary. You can cut down edge pieces with just a box cutter and a metal square.
- More durable than regular sheet vinyl
- Cheaper than ceramic tile
- Easy to repair - if a tile starts to come loose you can heat it up with a blow dryer to reactivate the adhesive then just stick it back down again. Also, if a tile gets damaged, you don't have worry about replacing the entire floor - just pull up that square and replace it with a new one.
- Clean lines - since each tile is one square foot, you don't have one big, unattractive seam like we did with the vinyl sheet that was too small for the room.
- Haven't found any yet!
