Fitting and installing extra-wide vinyl flooring

Fitting and installing extra-wide vinyl flooring in kitchens and bathrooms

The technique is largely the same as for fitting strips of vinyl except there will not be any seams to stick, or pattern matching to do. You should start by laying the flooring out fully – you will probably need help for this – and try to find a long straight wall against which the first edge can be laid.

Then make diagonal cuts at each corner to allow the flooring to be positioned roughly, with the excess material ‘climbing up’ the skirting board or wall. Trim away the excess, leaving a 50 to 75mm (2 to 3in) overlap all round. Scribe the first wall, if necessary, then trim and ease the flooring back into its exact position. Deal with corners, projections, and obstacles as you work your way round the room, leaving the same overlap; finally trim to a perfect fit.

You’d be surprised just how many people take this job on at home as part of their DIY handyman hobby, only to make a mess of it, or sometimes it doesn’t last for a longtime before flooring starts to move on its own accord.

If you want the job doing properly I always advise to let the experts do it, who do this as a full time job!
