There are three different ways to lay down vinyl flooring. The first way is floating, which is the easiest in my opinion. When I had to choose between the floating method, the full spread method and the peel and stick method, the floating method seemed the least complicated way. With the other two, you do have to involve adhesives, which can get messy. With the floating method, you just put the planks and tiles together like a puzzle piece. You connect them together through interlocked pieces, and they are very sturdy once they are all connected.
I wanted a flooring that would hold up against my pets too. I knew that there are different types of vinyl flooring, so I did my homework and researched all the different kinds. I have three large dogs, so I need a vinyl flooring that would stand up to a lot of heavy foot, or paw, traffic. It can get quite rainy here too, so I did not want flooring that would end up getting ruined because of a lot of wet foot traffic. I wanted something that would be easy to mop up if it got wet.
After researching different kinds of flooring and different ways to install each one, I knew that I was making the right choice in my decision. I had considered having a professional install the flooring but I ended up doing it myself. In my research, I had come across a site that explained in easy language how to install a new vinyl floor. It was extremely easy for me since I have done a lot of DIY projects in the past. By doing it myself, I saved a lot of money. Now, I can put those extra dollars to use in more DIY projects that will make my home look even nicer than it does now.
