A DIY flooring installation can be a fun, but also difficult if you do not have the right tools, materials, and skills for the floor type you want to install. The degree of difficulty, time and effort required to complete a professional looking flooring installation will vary greatly depending on the floor type you choose and the floor you plan to install over.
We do not recommend installing your new laminate floor as soon as the cartons arrive at your home. Any new laminate floor needs to sit in your house for 24-48 hours in the room it will be installed in order to acclimate or to become accustomed to a new climate or conditions.
Place the cartons in the middle of the floor, laying each box flat, side-by-side, in the room in which you intend to install them. Keep them away from the exterior walls. It is not necessary to remove the shrink wrap and open the boxes.
