How to lay vinyl flooring
Vinyl is a low-cost, easy-to-maintain flooring option for kitchens and bathrooms. Make it an even lower cost option by fitting it yourself with our step-by-step guide
We asked the experts at B&Q for their top tips when laying vinyl…
Keep the roll of vinyl in the room where it will be laid for 48 hours to bring it to room temperature. If the weather is cold, put the heating on to stop it becoming brittle.
Invest in a pair of knee pads as you’ll spend a lot of time on your knees while laying the flooring.
Be sure to completely clear the floor space, removing any dust, debris or protruding nails – even the smallest piece of debris or nail will show through the vinyl.
