Vinyl flooring or lino is becoming really popular. I think it's because you can have it in such a variety of styles and pans that you can really personalize your flooring. It's a little bit cheaper than tiles, and it's not that difficult to make. I'm going to show you exactly how to do it. First things: first, let's clear the area don't want anything laying around and then we're gonna give it a good sweep up as well. We need a really flat flush surface and that's what this is so no point in wasting any as you take it up.
I just go on top a little tip, there's no point trying to work around a door so just take it off and put it to the side. What are you thinking the door off leave one screw in the top? If I was to take all of them off, what's gonna happen, boom, okay and then you do risk either like ripping part of the wood with the hinge or a hinge coming off completely. So just leave one in and take all of the bottom ones out with one hand, support the door, the other hand slowly take it off. Just let that drop, and then we can take the door away ourselves.
Taking the bath pan off allows us to get our liner right underneath she gives it a much sharper finish. Okay, now get our vinyl flooring into the bathroom. Now the type of vinyl flooring you choose. It's gonna vary on how much you wanna spend so for a thicker one should last a little bit longer as well. When you go to the shop to buy this, you take in your measurements of your lengthen, your bread and about 100 mils all the way around. Let's lay it out as best as we can one inch of your liner, that's gonna be manufactured cut, so we want to use that so I can put that again to this back wall that I know is square and then I work back now we're gonna do a very rough cut along the other sides.
So when you come to your first corner peel, it back slightly and just put a cut into the corner. This allows me to push the vinyl in use your straight edge, to give you a line, and then I'm gonna go above what I think I need when you've got your vinyl, bring it into the house for a couple of hours before you plan on fitting It because, as it gets warmer and actually that's more pliable, so this part of it when I'm pushing it into the edge, and that should be a bit easier.
Probably the most feared thing by people when they're trying to lathe their vinyl flooring is things like toilets. Pedestals things you go to cut round, pull back your vinyl, okay and I'm gonna push this edge in here tight make sure it stays square with your edge. My first cut is gonna be straight down. I've stopped a good inch before where we're actually gonna finish.
