I put self adhesive vinyl floor tiles in the conservatory. Did not have room
under the door to lay normal tiles. The tiles were an imitation stone look
so I laid them with a gap and grouted in between them. I had not heard of
grouting vinyl tiles anywhere but it was not a big area so if all went wrong
not a big job to rip them up and start again. I must admit that when it was
finished it looked good and you could only tell they were not real stone by
feeling them. But when the sun got on them and they got warm they started
lifting. I spent last summer pushing them back down again when they lifted,
but if any lift this summer I will take it up and stick it back down again
with some glue.
Any suggestions for a glue to use would be appreciated. I am sticking them
to a concrete floor.
They may stick better to ply and I think they would have been OK on concrete
if it had not been a conservatory which gets quite hot.
Thanks for that honest post. We've been given some 'wood' strips which we
intend laying in the kitchen on ply. It doesn't get any sun but it might be
affected by the oven heat.
Needs consideration, thanks again,
