Laminate Flooring: How To Install It Perfectly

Offering the best craftsmanship and an elevated customer service in MA since 2019

Installing laminate flooring is one the easiest ways to change your floor look completely. It doesn’t require any mortar or nails; it sticks in place just like a jigsaw puzzle.

Take out all the necessary tools and follow our guide to lay the perfect laminate flooring in your room.

  1. Proper planning

Don’t start laying right away. Properly plan how and where will each row of planks go. You can also test lay some planks because they would be difficult to remove once the laying is complete.

  1. Underlayment

We recommend putting a foam underlayment below your laminate flooring. It provides heat and soundproofing and makes it easier to walk on the laminate.

  1. Start laying 

Trim the tongue from your boards and begin laying from the edge of your longest wall. Make sure to leave at least ¼ inch gap between your board and the wall.

  1. Lay the last plank

Once all the rows have been completed, lay the last row of your flooring. It might need a little trimming unless you’re super lucky. Then finish off by closing the ¼ inch gaps by using baseboard molding.
