Interlocking tiles

We wanted to replace the dirty carpet in front of the front and back doors with vinyl tiles. The tiles would look neater and cleaner when people entered the house.

So we went to Bougainville Flooring Center and purchased VersaLock luxury vinyl tiles and planks. They are glueless and interlocking.  Each plank measures 12” x 24”.

The carpet in front of each door was carved out, and the tiles were laid without glue.  The edges clicked together.  To make sure that the planks would not move when stepped on, metal strips were installed tightly around the perimeter.  The carpet covered the strips.

Here is the finished product (one doorway):

Lovely, isn’t it? We are very pleased.

    I’m sure that will be much easier for you to keep clean Gigi – shouldn’t show any wear either.

    OMG! Yesterday cleaning closets I found a box of those tiles left from my bathroom renovations. Such a perfect idea for an area around the entrance to our den. You did a nice job there.

    Beautiful, now be careful not to slip on a wet day as u guys are not used to them.

    A very clever idea indeed. I have wooden floors, badly worn around the front and back doors. Put carpet squares rugs at both doors. I can toss them in the wash when they get dirty.

    You are always making improvements around your house. Carpet is soft underfoot, but hard to keep clean in areas like an entry.
