How to easily install vinyl flooring:
- Opt for vinyl flooring which comes in plank form

In fact, if you opt to purchase vinyl flooring which comes in plank form, you should be able to complete installation of your new flooring in a single room in a matter of hours.
- Lay each board down parallel to the longest run of your room
In order to ensure that your new vinyl flooring looks professionally laid and is aesthetically pleasing to your eye, make sure to lay each board new parallel to the longest run of your room.
- Start from the left side of the room and work your way across to the right side of your room
To make laying down your vinyl flooring as simple as possible, opt to work from left to right
In order to be able to quickly and efficiently lay down your vinyl, it’s best to start from the left side of your chosen room and to continue laying down vinyl planks until you reach the right side of your room.
- Either start clicking each plank into place or lay down suitable adhesive for your vinyl planks
If you have opted for vinyl flooring which simply clicks into place, you’re in luck as you’ll be able to get to work without having to mess around with laying down adhesive for your brand new flooring. However, if you have selected a more traditional form of vinyl, you’ll need to lay down vinyl specific glue onto your base before laying down each vinyl plank.
- If you’ve chosen a click style solution, click each panel down, so that the long side matches up to the side of the plank you’ve just installed
If you have done yourself a favor and have purchased a click in place, vinyl solution, as soon as you’ve laid down your first row of vinyl planks simply grab your next vinyl piece and place it down so that its long side matches up with the side of the plank which you’ve just installed.
Other tips to remember:
- Consider whether you’re interested in placing insulation underneath your vinyl flooring
