How many times have you settled for a rental where you got most of the features you needed but the kitchen was a meh? We’ve all been there. Before you start saving for your next move, you need to see the latest flooring hack that will make your dream kitchen a reality. There is now peel-and-stick faux marble tile that is budget-friendly and a cinch to install. Read on for all the deets, and get ready to say bye-bye to that sad linoleum.

At 99 cents per square foot, TrafficMASTER Vinyl is some of the most affordable on the market (and way cheaper than real marble!). It is available at Home Depot and a few other online retailers like and Walmart. The tiles come in 12″ x 12″ — which is standard for flooring tiles — and are made from a durable vinyl material that’s easy to clean. They’re scratch-, water-, skid-, and stain-resistant and are designed for high-traffic areas so you don’t need to worry about wearing through them while you dance around baking cookies.

Believe it or not, these peel-and-stick tiles can be installed in just one afternoon. Simply clean and dry your floors, prime them (if necessary), map out your tiles, trim for edges, and peel and stick your way to a more high-end look (there’s a handy install video from Home Depot here).

And if you’re in the mood for some more unique options, the brand makes the same peel-and-stick tile in a variety of different finishes (like red oak parquet, black marble, and terra cotta) so you can find the right style for your home. While you’re at it, get that bathroom updated too!
