Our DIY Installation Guide
Step 1: Gather Your Tools and Materials
Before you start, make sure you have the following:
- Laminated flooring planks
- Measuring tape
- Tapping block
- Utility knife
- Safety gear (goggles and knee pads)
Step 2: Prepare the Subfloor
Ensure your subfloor is clean, dry, and level. Install the underlayment to create a moisture barrier and cushioning layer.
Step 3: Plan the Layout
Decide on the direction of your planks, considering the room’s layout and light source. Create an expansion gap around the room’s perimeter.
Step 4: Install the First Row
Begin with the first row, ensuring the tongue side is against the wall. Use spacers to maintain an expansion gap and secure the planks with a tapping block and hammer.
Step 5: Continue Installation
Continue adding rows of planks, interlocking the tongue and groove. Use a saw to cut planks as needed to fit at the ends.
Step 6: Final Rows and Trim
Install the final rows, allowing for the expansion gap. Trim the last row to fit, leaving the appropriate gap.
Step 7: Finish the Installation
Remove spacers and install baseboards and trim to cover the expansion gap around the room’s perimeter.
