Back when I lived in Brooklyn, I managed to live in seven apartments in 12 years, all of which had linoleum tile. In a few apartments, I got permission from my landlord to swap out the tile or rip it out to use the wood floor underneath, but I was always at a loss when it came to finding something inexpensive — but still pretty — that I could put back on top (in the case of covering cement, particle board or sub-flooring). I tried using matte black restaurant-grade rubber tiles for a while and that was fun, but I always wanted the look of something like a cool patterned cement tile.
Then I stumbled onto Quadro Style on Instagram the other day and felt like I’d hit a gold mine of peel-and-stick tiles. All of Quadro Style’s tile patterns work on floors and/or walls and come in a wide range of styles from more traditional patterns (like quatrefoils) to more modern black-and-white geometrics. If you’re looking for a quick peel-and-stick makeover in a room that needs something easy to clean, check out Quadro Style’s tiles right here, or click through the slideshow above for more of my favorite options. xo, grace
