Installing laminated wood flooring is a challenging project but not impossible. This type of flooring is a great choice for those who have children and/or pets, because of its durability. It also a money saver for those who want the look of wood, but do not necessarily want to pay the high cost.
My husband and I recently installed laminate wood in our living room. Well he did most of the work but I really did help. It was a challenge but we came out of the gate wrong. Well my husband came out of the gate wrong. He thought that he could get away with not taking the base boards off of the walls to install the floor.
So the first thing I will tell you is… DO NOT TRY TO TAKE SHORT CUTS! Follow the instructions… all of them. The next issue next issue we had was uneven floors. It takes a little extra work but if you take the time to do it, it will be less work in the end.
The most important thing to know when installing laminated wood flooring is you must have the right equipment.
