I am going to be installing new laminate floors, this coming weekend and week. I can't wait! Tonight my little sister Chantel came over and helped me rip up all my carpet downstairs, shes awesome! My Mother and I went to lumber liquidators last weekend for the big annual sale, where I bought enough flooring to do my entire downstairs. Then my step dad who is also awesome, went and picked up the flooring and brought it over tonight.
This is going to be a big project for me, but I have been watching lots of how to video's on YouTube, hopefully I can do it! I think I can, I think I can! hehe. I am installing a click together floating floor, with the under pad pre attached to each board. It's a tad bit more expensive to get the kind with the under pad pre-attached but its sound so much easier, I think it will be worth it.
Ripping up the carpet was easier then I expected it to be!
My sub floor seems to be in really good condition, I am happy about that! I still have some more staples and nails to pull out. I have a few days to work on that though because you have to let the floors sit for a couple days in the environment they are going to be in before installing.
I think I am going to lay it the way closet to me, farthest from the dogs in the picture. What do you think? I am really happy with the color.
Have you done this before? Have any advice for me? I'd love to hear anything and everything that may be helpful! Thanks.
