Learn how easy it is to install peel and stick planks! They are a cheap, quick and easy way to upgrade any room in your house!
Hi Friends! Have you seen my other posts about my laundry room remodel?? I had fun making this blah space into a cute farmhouse laundry room on a very small budget.
The last thing I needed to do was update the flooring. I am all about finding something that is easy to install.
I used vinyl tiles when I remodeled my bathrooms a few years back and even grouted them so they looked like tile (you can check out that post here.).
However, I wanted something a little different for my laundry room and so I decided on peel and stick planks… and I am so glad I did! They were super easy to install and look great!
I didn’t even rip up the linoleum floor that was there, I just stuck these right on top of it. This was my beautiful flooring before…
I lived with that for 14 years so it was definitely time to get updated! So, let’s get started!

How to Apply Stick on Planks
First vacuum and clean your floor. Then I laid out all the planks on the floor to see how I wanted to offset them.
I didn’t even take up the baseboards. I just pushed them as far over to the side as I could. It is just the laundry room!!
I recommend doing the ones butting up against the wall first. I started going horizontal but I started getting uneven gaps in between the planks. So I went back and just did all the planks up against the long wall and then added the rest off of those.
Make sure all the arrows on the back are going the same way. On to backside of every plank, there will be an arrow on the paper you peel off. The manufacturer puts the arrow on so if they are all put down with the arrows going the same way, the flow will look ideal.
Once you have all the full planks down, you’ll start cutting the others to fit. I put the plank in the spot and made a little cut or pencil mark where the next plank started.
Peel off the backing and stick it in place! Continue cutting the boards and putting them in place.
Tips for Putting Planks Under a Door Jam
At the door jam, I used a crowbar to lift up the transition enough to stick a plank under it.
You’ll need to do some measuring and creative cutting when you get to the door frame if you can’t get the boards under it.
For under the cabinets, I used liquid nails to secure it.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a creative day!
