How to Lay vinyl & carpet floor tiles | Prestigeflor

Learn how to install vinyl and carpet floor tiles with this easy guide from Prestigeflor. Our tiles are durable, easy to clean, and perfect for any room in your home. There are following steps need to be followed while installing vinyl or carpet tiles on your floors:

  1. Prep Your Subfloor and Room – Before you can begin laying your vinyl or carpet floor tiles, it’s essential to prepare the room first. Remove all furniture, carpets, and other items that may be in the way. With your space cleared out, use a broom or vacuum cleaner to clean up any debris on the subfloor. If needed, apply a leveling compound to any uneven areas to ensure your tiles have an even surface to lie on.
  2. Measure Out & Mark Where Tiles Will Go – Once your subfloor is prepped, measure out and mark where each of your tiles will go. If you’re using rectangular tiles, measure evenly for each row and column so the end result will be completely straight and neat when everything is laid down on the floor. Drawing these lines will help you get a better idea of how many tiles you need for the project at hand and if there are any additional pieces that might fit perfectly into odd corners or edges of the room from leftover materials.
  3. Apply Adhesive/Mortar Where Needed – Depending on what type of tile material you purchased (vinyl vs carpet), determine whether or not adhesive/mortar needs to be applied before they can be set in place — some require that this step is done while others don’t require anything at all before laying them flat onto the flooring surface beneath instead relying upon pressure alone during installation procedures afterward.
  4. Place Tiles Onto Floor According To Plan – Start laying each tile one by one according to your plan created earlier paying special attention as pieces are being placed together in order to make sure nothing gets crooked along the way while maintaining uniform spacing between each piece so none overlap nor gap too much from their neighboring structures around them.
  5. Use Spacers To Help Keep Everything Evenly Spaced – Utilize small spacers between adjoining floors whenever possible such as when two tiles intersect at the corner or when creating perfect 90-degree angles around doorways leading into other rooms altogether which help create seamless transitions throughout the entire living area once finished.
  6. Cut Off Excess Material As Needed Around Edges – To make everything fit perfectly snugly against walls and other areas where excess material might occur after the entire floor has been covered with vinyl/carpet tiles tile cutter blades designed specifically suited cutting these types of surfaces slice away whatever necessary until it fits flush against objects around them without leaving any noticeable gaps that could potentially cause problems later down line such as snags tears when walking across them frequently.

7 Let Glue & Mortar Dry Out According To Manufacturer’s Instructions – After everything has been cut accordingly let the adhesive/mortar used previously dry out according manufacturer’s instructions usually either overnight for 24 hours depending thickness layers must also allow newly installed floors time to settle the properly before walking stepping across completing process thus far much satisfaction results overall job completed correctly organized fashion following initial setup stages provided above originally discussed beginning article read before starting project initially now back enjoying nice new floors within the home!
