How to Place Vinyl Floors
Laying vinyl floors can instantly transform and modernize any room in your home. With many styles and colors to choose from, it’s easy to find the floor you need to help you renovate your kitchen or bathroom. Vinyl flooring is the most profitable floor both in terms of purchase and installation, because if you have confidence, you can even do it yourself.
Just follow this simple step-by-step guide
1) It is better to remove old tiles when installing new vinyl floors. It’s always better to get back to basics. When you remove the entire floor, give it a good cleaning. Try to remove any lumps or bumps that may appear under your new floor. If necessary, you may need to buy a filler to make sure your entry floor has the smooth surface you are looking for.
2) Be sure to buy a special vinyl sticker. Vinyl flooring already saves you money, and we recommend that you do not save glue. This is because cheap glue can discolor your tiles and ultimately cause them to peel off, as it is not sticky. If you do not want to buy stickers, you can always find blocking tiles.
3) Prepare tools for cutting the tiles you need. When laying vinyl floors, many people can use a tile knife or even a very sharp knife. But if you think that you have an unstable hand, you can always buy or rent a boxing knife or vinyl tile, this will help you sculpt the tiles in the same size in accordance with the design of your floor.
4) When it comes to laying your vinyl floor, many people like to start in the middle of the room. But it is recommended that when it comes to placing a vinyl floor in your kitchen or bathroom, it is best to start from the wall and move to any cabinet or obstruction. This way you can work to level the rest of the floor and how to cut vinyl flooring.
5) When working with glue, always apply it and leave it for a couple of minutes so that it begins to harden and becomes very sticky. Always start from the corner and place in rows, making sure that each tile is aligned with the next. To make sure the tile is flat, roll the roller along it to remove air bubbles.
6) Now you can start cutting the shavings to match the small annoying gap you always had. It is important to remember that try to keep the uncut side of the tile next to the entire tile, and the side cut against the wall or cabinet. For an accurate measurement, turn the mosaic upside down and measure the distance from the wall or cabinet to the mosaic that needs to be placed next to it.
