LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) and Laminate Flooring are the two most popular budget options available replacing your existing flooring. Despite being budget options, these types of flooring are extremely high quality. The right laminate flooring looks and acts like real wood, and the right plank is easy to clean and will last you for years at a time.
However, all flooring – whether it’s one of these low cost options or high end wood flooring – requires careful and deliberate installation that addresses all the needs of the floor. It is not as simple as placing the flooring on the ground and connecting them together. Without the right padding, support, measurements, and more, your flooring will only last a short time before the lock system will start to break and disconnect, and your floor will slowly fall apart.
Flooring is Harder Than it Looks
DIY flooring can absolutely be done. If you’re interested, there are many YouTube videos online that tell you exactly how to place laminate flooring. Here is a video from Lowes on the topic:
But, as “easy” as it can look, it isn’t always easy. Your flooring has to be level. You have to make sure the subflooring is nailed into place (otherwise you get squeaking noises). You have to measure correctly and make sure that the flooring is placed in a way that is pleasing to the eye. Cutting edges can also be difficult.
