Soooo…with our For-Right-Now” house that I rent…I try to be as frugal with renovations as possible…because let’s be honest….it’s not mine!! So funny…you two are just too darn cute 🙂 The floor looks great and the price is even better!! Tip: you can use vinyl with a textile backing to level off small irregularities on the subfloor ( Essentials 220T , Essentials 280T , Exclusive 280T ). If the surface is very smooth, a primer might be necessary to help the flooring adhere to the subfloor. As a general rule, flooring is installed following the direction of the main light source.
It is important for the flooring to acclimatise for at least 24 hours before installation at a minimum room temperature of 15°C. Unroll the flooring and cut it to size allowing an extra 15-20cm to avoid being short of material at the end of the installation. Apart from wood designs, all consecutive sheets should be installed in the opposite direction for a homogeneous rendering.

The quick way to select your floor, to find a retailer, to check how many m² you need to buy or to visualize our different flooring solutions in home settings. We didn’t want to make a mistake because new flooring would be something we would have to live with for a long time. Chemically Coated Flooring: This is a floor covering that is poured onto a concrete floor.
We also had to think about the amount of time it would take to remove the old flooring and install the new. A flooring replacement project is messy and difficult because everything that sits on the floor has to be constantly moved. We started researching the different types of flooring that we might want to use when we got rid of our old carpet. Designer Vinyl: This is similar to vinyl squares but always needs to be glued to the floor. It is now three years since we did the install, and the floor still looks like new!
Vinyl Plank Flooring: Vinyl flooring that looks like planks of stone or wood and can only be used under certain circumstances. Laminate Plank Flooring: This is heavier but less flexible than Vinyl Plank Flooring but looks like real stone or wood. Porcelain Flooring: This flooring is similar to ceramic tile, but is colored all the way through instead of just being glazed. After many hours of reading and discussing the pros and cons of the different flooring choices, we were about to give up and just replace our present carpet with a low pile carpet. Prior to eliminating the carpet, we had decided that we were going to buy and install laminate flooring.
