    Do you think you could use regular floor tile, not remove the backing to expose the adhesive and still make it work?

      Not sure but that could work – I would test it with a few tiles and see!


    where can I find tiles similar to these > with plain colours

      Unfortunately they don’t make these tiles anymore and I haven’t found anything similar.

        Did Modularity produce the tape too or is that (or a similar) product still available? I’d really like to attempt this with regular vinyl tile.

          from what I remember they got their tape from another manufacturer – I’ve tried to find that exact tape but haven’t been successful unfortunately
