SHE managed to redo her entire kitchen floor for just £20.
But when Em Watson visited the group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK on Facebook to brag about her DIY job, there was a mixed reaction.
“I absolutely love my new kitchen floor,” Em wrote.
“Poundland £5 for 10 squares in 1 pack – I have 4 packs and 3.5 squares left
“So it only costs £20 for a new floor.”
Though Em shared two pictures of her kitchen before and the stunning one after, some people were quick to admit the tiles didn’t pan out for them.
“Never again would I buy these, replacing them twice in the bathroom thinking the first batch was cheap so I still didn’t buy more expensive ones well,” one wrote.
“The sticky residue it leaves is awful, it started chipping and lifting off the floor, eventually pulling out the whole lot and getting vinyl down.
“Don’t waste your money.”
“I absolutely hate those tiles!” added another. “Was a good idea back then, but hell to remove.”
“I bought these and they came loose after a day,” commented a third.
“But looks good, hope yours holds up, I must have caught a dodgy batch.”
But others argued the tiles were a good buy, with one writing: “I used these in my last house where the kitchen floor lasted for years, then I used the black Poundland tiles on my front porch.
“They were out for 8 years before I included them as a changing color scheme.”
“Would definitely use them again – 3 people and 4 cats in and out daily not to mention guests.
“They have held up extremely well, no chipping or lifting, no issues at all.”
And another added: “I did this for my hallway, was £1 for 4 squares, did my lower hallway at my front door first then decided to do my little upstairs hallway, have plenty left over if I need one.” have to replace a few.”
“This is awesome!!!” wrote a third person.
“Why does everyone think their opinion matters?
“Simply well done is fine. If you have nothing positive to add, go ahead!”
