If you haven’t already heard, we have some very exciting news! We’ve launched our newest product, FloorPops! A perfect addition to the WallPops family, FloorPops are peel and stick vinyl tiles that are incredibly easy to install. With no grout and special tools needed, getting the tiled look you’ve always wanted just got a lot easier-and at an affordable cost! To celebrate their launch, we decided to make over an entryway using the Gothic FloorPops. Witness the magic and see the transformation for yourself!
Before Installing FloorPops:
Lay tile package flat and allow 48 hours to acclimate to room temperature. Be sure the surface is clean, smooth, flat and dry before applying. Area must be free of grease, dirt, wax and other oils. Make sure to not apply tiles to loose or uneven flooring, and radiant heated floors. If installing over concrete, a primer adhesive is necessary for a secure application.
- Mark perpendicular guidelines to find the center of the room.
- With the back liner on, lay tiles out from the center of the room, to the walls. Make sure each arrow on the back of the tiles are pointed in the same direction!
- Starting from the center of the room, remove backing from your first tile and press firmly into place. Install the next tile tightly against the side of the first one. Working on one quarter of the room at a time, apply tiles in a step pattern.
- Use a straight edge and utility knife to trim edge tiles to fit oddly shaped spaces/floor borders.
- Are FloorPops really permanent/are they removable?
To be durable enough to withstand foot traffic, FloorPops were designed with a strong adhesive. This means that they are NOT removable in the sense that our peel and stick NuWallpaper or wall decals are removable/temporary. They can, however, be removed should you choose to- we recommend using a scraper or an object with a thin, flat surface to wiggle under a seam and pop a corner of the tile up. From there you should be able to peel off the tile with your hands. Please note that as the adhesive is strong, if installed on a painted surface FloorPops are likely to lift the paint. It is also possible that some adhesive residue may be left behind when FloorPops are removed.
- Can you install FloorPops over existing tile?
We do not recommend installing over grouted tiles or floating wood laminate, as the base layer would not be secure. If you choose to install over ceramic or grouted tiles, we recommend filling all grout lines with thin-set tile mortar before installing FloorPops over existing tiles to create a flat, smooth surface.
- How thick are FloorPops?
FloorPops are 0.06 inches thick (they are 3D, not flat decals).
- Will FloorPops stick to concrete?
If not polished concrete, a primer adhesive, such as liquid neoprene, is necessary for a secure application.
- Are FloorPops waterproof? How do you clean them?
FloorPops are water resistant. Allow 5 days after installation before cleaning, but once those 5 days have passed you can sweep, mop, vacuum or dust away! For best results, use a vinyl floor cleaner and do not clean with an excessive amount of water.
- Can I use FloorPops as a backsplash?
No, we do not recommend installing FloorPops on walls.
- Are FloorPops safe/Phthalate free?
Yes, they have been tested to EU standards and are 6P free.
- Are FloorPops fireproof?
FloorPops are fire-resistant to 80°C / 176°F. They are not to be used on radiant heated floors.
- How many FloorPops are in one pack?
There are ten 12 x 12 inch tiles in one pack.
- How do I trim FloorPops/are they easy to cut?
We recommend a utility knife and straight edge, but they are easy to trim with scissors as well!
- Are FloorPops glossy/matte/smooth/textured?
FloorPops have a low luster finish and a light texture for traction purposes.
- Can I install FloorPops outside?
FloorPops are designed for interior use only.
- Can I install FloorPops in an RV?
No. Unless the RV is temperature controlled year-round the tiles will likely fail due to expansion and shrinkage from seasonal temperature fluctuation.
- Will you be coming out with more designs?
We are always looking to expand on successful product lines- due to the overwhelmingly positive response from customers, we are beginning the design process of future additions to the FloorPops collection! If you would like to be notified when the new designs are available, please visit here.
I am a designer in the Chicagoland area and am interested in the flloor pops. Quite lovely and practical. Do you have sample sizes for color and visual interest.

Hi Tami! Yes! Sample are available on our site: https://www.wallpops.com/peel-and-stick-floor-tiles under the “Item” drop down just select “Sample”!
Your blog is amazing and it’s very educational. New vinyl products are new trend.
Hey there! I just installed my floor pops tile and they are lifting. How to I keep this from happening? I can feel that they are stuck to the floor but the tops are coming up just slightly and if they aren’t slay down I’m afraid feet will start damaging it. What should I do? Thank you!
Hi Savannah! As long as the flooring you installed the FloorPops on is completely smooth and flat – we’re not sure why the tiles would be lifting. Could you email our customer service team with more information and details about your order? We’d love to work with directly on resolving this!
Hi! Can You lay floor pop over carpet?
Great question! We do not recommend installing FloorPops over carpets.

Amazing article! A big thumbs up for your great information you have got here on this post.
You say each tile is is 0.6 inches thick (FAQ 3) – it that right? That’s incredibly thick: it would raise kitchen appliances up so high they wouldn’t fit under the counter!
Hi Celia, FloorPops are 0.06 inches thick. Hope this information helps!
I just finished my floor pops install in my laundry room. The seams are slightly pulling up every couple hours. We roll them and they stick back down for a while then slowly pull back up. I’m not sure what else to do. The subfloor was clean, dry and the room was about 68° at the time of install.
Hi there JJ, we’re sorry to hear about your FloorPops. Did you prime the subfloor prior to installing? Did you allot time for the tiles to acclimate to the temperature of the room prior to install? Please email us directly so we can help troubleshoot what may have occurred during installation to be causing the adhesion issues. We look forward to assisting you!
Hi! One of my floor pops lifted slightly in a corner and cracked. I have an extra tile I can replace it with. But how do I deal with the adhesive and the floor underneath to make sure the new tile sticks better?
Hi Christina, that’s a great question! If it’s only one corner that you’re concerned about, we’d suggest using a little bit of carpet tape for that additional adhesive. If it’s more than a corner/one tile, we’d recommend our FloorPops primer. Let us know if you have any other questions!
I understand that I don`t have to grout but if I wish to do so, Can I? Is this a groutable peel and stick tile? Thanks
Hi Fernanda, great question! The tiles are not groutable.
The Villa design that was installed in my bathroom did not line up The design on the tile does not match up to the surrounding tiles
It was installed by professionals
Why would this happen?
Also the background on the Villa pattern is white but in some of the packs that I bought , the background was off white
You may find a slight variation in design match from tile to tile. This variation should not affect the overall look of your floor. Be sure to rotate tiles for best look! In regards to the tile colors – are all of the packages from the same lot/batch number? You can check this information on the back of the boxes. If they are from different lots, that would explain the subtle color variation. Please reach out to our customer service team directly so we can better assist. We look forward to connecting with you!
I’m looking to use these in our kitchen after I remove our old cracked tiles. The only issue is our dogs water bowl would be on top and he’s a messy drinker. Would this damage the tiles with water being left on top or would it get between the edges?
Hi Franki, that’s a great question! FloorPops™ are water resistant and would be able to handle some spills/splashes. As long as it’s not an excessive amount of water, you should be fine!
I installed the floor pop tiles in my bathroom, and primed the sub flooring beforehand. Because it’s a bathroom, I want to cover the seams with grout to ensure water doesn’t get through. Is this a big no-no? I can’t find pros/cons anywhere.
Hi Emily, we do not recommend using grout. If you have any other questions, please email our customer service team directly for assistance at: firstname.lastname@example.org
