Tapping Block and Pull Bar (optional) Use dark-colored, dry erasable marker when measuring and fitting your planks. Marker is more visible than pencil, plus all marks made with it are so easy to remove- this way you can work stress free and just wipe out wrong marks if needed.
It is important that you keep this kind of floor clean. Any dust, dirt, and sand particles may scratch the decorative surface over time in any high traffic areas. One important thing to remember is that you will need to keep laminate flooring relatively dry. Any water/moisture can cause the planks to swell, unless they have water resistant coatings and even that will only take so much. Water spills need not be a cause for concern if wiped up quickly and does not sit for a prolonged period of time.
First of all, be sure to choose you measure out the space where you plan to fit the laminate flooring. It is always a good idea to purchase about 10 percent extra laminate boards than you think you'll need, just in case you've made a mistake in measuring, or some of the boards get damaged during the installation. Most quality tile and wood flooring specialists will refund any products you haven't used if they are still in their packaging. To calculate the amount of laminate flooring you'll need to purchase, measure the length and width of your room in metres, and multiply the two numbers together to give you the amount of m2 you need to cover. Most packs of laminate will tell you how many m2 is in each pack, which is great. Always make sure you double-check your measurements, never take just one set of measurements. If you have a particularly awkward shaped space to measure up, a useful method is to split the room up into smaller squares/sections, and then add the m2 together at the end.
Designers recommend laminate for an upscale look without an upscale cost. Homeowners can make a house a home, stick to a budget AND get a warm wood look. Designed with a tough and durable wear layer, it is much stronger than most installed solid hardwood flooring, vinyl's, and carpets. It stands up much better to dents and scratches that the softer surface of solid hardwood floors, and is a much better surface to install if you have heavy foot traffic, kids, or household pets.
Your laminate floors are an investment so be sure to protect them with the proper rug pad. If you save a little now with those waffle like non slip pads, you may pay a much larger price in the future to repair or replace your floors.
