Easy DIY flooring options

Flooring is one of the biggest expenses. It is good to choose a type you can install yourself because it saves you money. Below are some flooring types that are easy to install.



Carpet tile flooring

Carpet tile flooring can be installed without the help of a professional (www.gulvxtra.no). They are very easy to install and you can as well create a custom pattern with the flooring.

If a section of the tile gets damaged, you can easily replace it, carpet tiles are cheaper when compared to rolled carpet (https://www.gulvxtra.no/Laminat). The tools you need when installing carpet tiles are a utility knife, tape measure and chalk line.

Peel and Stick Vinyl Flooring

This is another flooring type that can be installed quickly and so easily. The size is 12 by 12 and you can easily know how many you will need.

There is no special equipment needed for installation you need a knife to cut lines, tape measures and a chalk line to help you find the centre of the room.



Laminate plank flooring

Installation of a wood floor is easier because the tongue and groove snap together without using too much force. Give the planks enough time to acclimate before installing them.

This gives them time to adjust to the humidity and room temperature (https://www.gulvxtra.no/Parkett). You start with foam during installation, you may need a hammer and a handsaw.

A hammer will be used to tap the planks together, while a handsaw is used to cut planks.

Painted Wood Flooring

If you want to save money, consider upgrading your existing flooring. If it’s a wood floor, you only need to paint it, but again it takes time because you will have to wait for at least 24 hours to allow each coat to dry.

You only need a roller, paintbrush and sandpaper. It is an easy and very cost-effective method.
