How to
fit Fliptiles

Start anywhere

The unique shape of a Fliptile means you can start anywhere in a room, joining each Fliptile as you spread out. You can go under or up to furniture, or all the way to a wall.
All you need is a level, indoor surface that is firm and dry. You can install Fliptiles directly over concrete, wood, vinyl and even ceramic tiles.

No glue required

You don't need to adhere Fliptiles to the floor. You stick Fliptiles together using the supplied adhesive stickers and their weight and special backing holds them in place.
*If you are using under 4 packs of Fliptiles on a slippery surface (such as wood, ceramic tiles or concrete) then we suggest adding a non-slip liner used for rugs.

Any pattern

Each Fliptile fits into another Fliptile. You can either join Fliptiles to form a square grid with two Fliptiles or break out of the grid to form interesting shapes.
*If you break out of the grid - simply make sure that there is space for the next FlipTile.

How many
Fliptiles do you need?

Start Small,
expand over time

Fliptile can expand with your budget. You can start small (under a bed or coffee table) and add Fliptiles as your budget allows. Or buy all you need and fill a room.

Calculate Your Area

You can leave gaps between Fliptile and the wall or furniture, but if you want to go flush wall-to-wall, we suggest adding 10% to cover any wastage.*
*Fliptiles can easily be cut to any shape so there is minimal wastage.

How to
start laying Fliptiles

You can play with patterns and shapes by laying down Fliptiles loosely and joining them later using the adhesive stickers provided. You can even reposition Fliptiles after using the adhesive stickers by carefully removing them.
Once you are happy with your pattern, follow these 2 easy steps…

step 1

Apply one adhesive decals to the Bitumen backing on the Fliptile (sticky side facing the ceiling).

step 2

Position another Fliptile flush next to the first Fliptile and press down on the adhesive decal. Ensure there are no gaps between the two tiles.
Repeat Step 1 & 2.

step 3

Now apply at least one more decal under the second Fliptile on the side that will join the next Fliptile. We recommend that each tile have decal under 3 sides.

step 4

Position this Fliptile flush next to the second FlipTile and press down. Ensure there are no gaps between the two tiles.


Tips & Tricks

You can leave gaps between Fliptile and the wall or furniture, but if you want to go flush into and around corners or odd-shapes, follow these simple tricks to fit like a Pro...

Bend + cut

Good for corners and straight edges.
Fit one side of the FlipTile to another Fliptile and bend at the point that it reaches the wall or edge. Mark each end of the fold, and cut along the fold line using heavy scissors or a craft knife.*
*Tip: Use masking tape or another Fliptile to guide your cut.

Dealing with Corners

If you are fitting the Fliptile into a corner - fold and cut one edge first before the next.

Odd shapes +
tight spaces

If bending the Fliptile is not an option, simply make a paper template. Slide the paper underneath the Fliptile and flush to the edge you need to fit against. Draw the shape onto the paper using a marker and make a large X. Cut out the template, turn it over so that you cannot see the X and place this over the back of another Fliptile. Mark the lines, cut with a heavy-duty scissor and fit your piece into the space.
For corners, use two pieces of paper - and stick them together using sticky tape. Then mark as cut as before.
