Laminate floors are the new rave in home improvement now. Not do they provide a look that is exactly like that of real wood, they also infuse a warm touch of class into your living area with ease. The best thing is that they are quite easy to install at home. So you can go to a hardware store, grab laminate flooring that speaks to you and head home to install it yourself.

What you need to do a laminate flooring installment

Here's a list of things you need to have when planning to replace your flooring yourself safely prepare for all eventualities:

  • Knee pads
  • 16-gauge nails
  • Wood scraps
  • Safety gear (masks, hard workers gloves and safety goggles to avoid flying chips)
  • Measuring tape
  • Nail gun
  • Pry bar
  • Circular saw

Apart from these, if you have someone experienced in home DIY projects to assist you, that also helps.

Step 1 – Remove the existing floorboards. Use a pry-bar to remove the baseboards that exist on the floor. If there is carpet on it, cut that at the edges and dispose of it safely. If any other fasteners are remaining on the subfloor, remove them with a pair of pliers and clean away the dust and dirt.

Step 2 – Prepare the laminate flooring. Get the laminates out of the box to set up the wood tones around the house. Get the precise dimensions of the plank and add 3/8 of an inch to allow for expansion. Mark that distance from the wall you intend to start from and then make a chalk line at the corner. Chalking enables you to have a straight line for the first run of planks.

Step 3 – Plan for custom cut boards. There will be areas across the room where you will need shorter lengths of flooring planks. Measure these ahead to know where you will make the board cuts for these areas early enough so that you are not caught unaware.

Step 4 – Install the first row. Once the flooring lines up against the chalk line you marked, ensure the tongue side faces the wall. Don’t forget to leave the 3/8-in gap between the wall and the edge for expansion and also at the end of the first run.

Step 5 – Install the rest of the floor. With the first run done, continue adding planks across the room using a tapping block and hammer to ensure a snug fit between planks and across. Check everything first before moving. Trim custom cut boards wherever necessary to get a good fit.

Step 6 – Install the last run. The final run involves ripping each board to size. A circular saw helps with this. Load the 16-gauge nails into a nail gun and reinstall all baseboards and nail these into the studs.

If you encounter any installation issues along the way, call the store, and they will direct you to a professional installer to provide you with some help.

Setting up a country style of kitchen is undoubtedly an excellent way to go if you want to create a modern kitchen while on a budget. Country kitchens are model of shared memories. This style of the kitchen does not need to be expensive nor does it require a lot of work. Here are some steps to creating a country kitchen:

  1. Painting and wallpaper: Start with earth-toned paint colors—especially for the walls. Dare to add additional colors to your country kitchen such as shades of pink, red, green and blue. Sprinkle in some black and white with touches of grays appearing in your accent pieces. Search for patterned wallpaper that carries a country print. Finally, finish off the room with solid prints
  2. Flooring and tiles: A natural wood floor would complete any country kitchen—with laminate flooring as a good runner-up where that is unavailable or out of the budget. If you already have proper flooring and are on a budget, you can add braided rugs to your floor. Accent your flooring with flagstone or tiles. Including a theme of roosters or sunflowers brings a great country touch to your kitchen. Line the backside of your countertops with country accents that you can pick up at any flea market or garage sale.
  3. Storage: Look at creative storage ideas such as corner cabinets made out of wood. A wooden baker's cabinet is a terrific touch if you have the extra room. Wood cupboards that have open glass doors are also perfect for a country kitchen. You can find some antique-looking rustic baskets of different sizes which help to store lots of small items.
  4. Furniture: Furniture is critical in your country kitchen, and only certain items are going to work. It is best to pick from wicker or natural wood. Ideally, you want to get something that looks worn out when putting in a country kitchen. Distressing can be done quite affordably to furniture found at secondhand stores and flea markets. If you want to stay with what you have, then make or buy some country-style slipcovers with a country print. Put a rocking chair or an old bench in a corner for an added finish.
  5. Decorations: Decorate your new kitchen with things that you may already have especially in your attic. Look for old-fashioned bowls and unique pottery. Old quilts are a big score and can make any country kitchen look authentic. The great thing about country kitchens is that the items do not necessarily have to match or even be perfect.

Getting your country kitchen isn't too difficult with some creativity. You can speak to an interior décor expert today for more ideas.
