What’s the Easiest Flooring to Install?
Mar 03, 2021
Many of us are on the lookout for ways to save—both time and money. And when it comes to your home flooring, the same mindset often prevails. As a result, many people wonder how easy a DIY flooring install job could be. Tackling an install job of new tile in your kitchen or a new carpet in the basement should be no problem, right? Turns out, the steps to a DIY floor install can actually be pretty complicated. Thankfully, there are many great options for easy-to-install flooring that professionals can get done in no time.
Low-Key Luxury Vinyl
Luxury Vinyl flooring continues to gain popularity, and this is not just because of its durability, great price point, and beautiful styles. Luxury vinyl flooring is also one of the best types of flooring for an easy install process. Since many luxury vinyl floor styles come in planks, they can easily be installed with a click-and lock-system over your floor’s sublayer; it’s what’s known as a floating layer. However, even though this install process is somewhat easier than installing, say, real hardwood floors, the professionals at Flooring America not only can do the job well for you, they can do it much faster!
Tile and Carpet: For the Pros
Tile is one of the most stunning and durable floor choices to have in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room. Tile is waterproof, long-lasting, but, as it turns out, not the easiest flooring for a DIY job! When installing tile, one must keep in mind the issue of perfecting grout, too, which is no easy task. Carpet is another flooring option that is best left to the pros. This plush, beautiful stand-by for your living room is no joke when it comes to installation, as the tools and steps required for carpet-installing can be especially complicated for flooring newbies.
Peace of Mind—And Time
When it comes to purchasing new floors, it can be tempting to want to take on the install job yourself. But unless you’re truly the handiest (and most patient) person you know, it’s an experience that is best left to the professionals!
Thankfully, the folks at your local Flooring America are here to answer any questions you might have about the install process and their approach to getting your new floors installed as quickly and reasonably as possible. Give them a call or stop by in-store today!
