Design Your Own Floor Plan

Each tile has two adjoining sides of loops, and two adjoining sides of pegs. All tiles on any given installation should... 

 as in example 1.

CAUTION: If you inadvertently rotate a tile 90 as in illustration 2, it will snap into place but you will not be able to complete the installation properly. Somewhere down the road you will come to a place where two adjoining tiles will have loops or both will have pegs and you will have to retrace your installation until you find out where the mistake was done and correct it. 

Start from the corner most visible, where good looks is most important and work out from there. Start on one side, all loops facing the same way. Lay the second tile over the first, placing pegs down over loops and pressing to "snap" the second tile onto the first. Repeat. 

Do one row at a time and then start on the next, continuing to lay the new tile over the last,
pegs over loops. A rubber mallet is very handy to make certain that the loops snap securely over the pegs. Lay the next course of tiles over the first. When you have several rows done, walk over the seams to make certain the pegs are securely seated in the loops. You will usually hear the soft "snap" as the peg seats correctly. 


• Measure twice, cut once. Applies to many life situations. 
• Do use a hard rubber mallet for large areas. 
• Do plan your layout carefully, for although these tiles are not hard to pull apart, it is tedious to do so. 
• Give yourself plenty of time. Everything takes longer than you think. 
• Lay out all of the tiles, all facing the same way before you start snapping them together. 
• After you do the above step, consider your layout thoughtfully, especially if you are building a pattern of different colors. 
• When done, walk along the seams to make sure they are all snapped securely together. 


• Interlocking  floor tile snaps together easily, but don't do a lot of this with your bare thumbs if you expect to use them in the near future. 
• However great the temptation, don't start assembling your floor without laying all the tiles out first, with the proper orientation.
• Don't cut your tiles before measuring carefully, at least twice. A paper pattern is good for complex fitting. For simple shapes, use a felt tip pen on the OUTside of the cut line. 
• Don't use kitchen knives to cut tiles. We have successfully used heavy scissors and shears, box cutters, *single edged razor blades and *Exacto Blades (with much care). 
Don't cut tiles without protective gloves on. 

Fitting Custom Shapes

A heavy pair of scissors or shears is fine for straight and most curved cuts and a box cutting knife will do for fancier cuts.

*Cutting the soft tile dulls a razor blade very fast. If you have a lot of cutting to do, keep several fresh blades on hand.
