- How to lay a floor?
Installing a floor can be a complicated process if you have little DIY experience. As such, we always advise that you seek professional assistance in order to avoid damages or any complications down the line.
This will all depend on the type of floor that you’re working with. At Bath Shack, we stock a range of vinyl and laminate flooring, both of which feature an easy installation. For vinyl flooring, it is easy to cut to fit awkward spaces and requires no bonding to the subfloor, it also snaps together edge-too-edge and end-to-end. Ensure you prepare the floor that you’ll be installing it over by filling any cracks with a concrete patcher. If it’s being installed over a plywood subfloor, fill any depressions with a floor-levelling compound.
For laminate flooring, also ensure that is going over a surface that is as flat and smooth as possible. It’s important that you choose the right kind of laminate flooring underlay –shop our range here. After installing the underlay, begin clicking the floor into place. Begin at a straight wall and lay your first row joining all the edge boards, ensuring you use spacers to keep a gap of 10mm from the wall (cut-offs from the flooring could also work if you don’t have spacers). Then start the next row with a full board to make sure you have spaced out joints. If the joints are too close, it may affect how solid your flooring is. Continue this process until you reach the other side of the room.
Installing solid wooden flooring can be a bit more complicated. To prepare for laying your new flooring, ensure all existing underlay and flooring is removed to ensure your surface is completely level. Solid wood flooring expands due to temperature and humidity so to stop it buckling, leave a 15mm gap around the perimeter. If your flooring is being installed onto concrete, use a flexible wood to concrete adhesive and then start in one corner and spread your adhesive along the starting wall sub-floor with a toothed trowel. Then place the first row of flooring into the glued area with the tongue facing away from the wall. If installing long planks of wood, pre-cut smaller boards are often included to enable you to begin a new row with staggered joints. Continue with this method of spreading the glue 2 board widths wide. Always ensure you maintain the expansion gap around the perimeter.
- What are the best tiles for a bathroom floor?
Vinyl and laminate flooring are both great options for a bathroom floor. Our flooring features PVC material for excellent levels of durability, with this robustness extending to even being water resistant. Real wooden floors can warp when in contact with water, but thanks to the fantastic quality of our vinyl and laminate floorings, you can achieve an authentically wooden look in your bathroom, but without fear of damage.
- How to lay floor around a bath?
Installing flooring around objects can be a complicated task and needs to be done with great accuracy. As such, we always recommend that you seek professional assistance if you are in any way unsure.
When installing either vinyl or laminate flooring to your bathroom, you’ll have to work around several objects, such as a bath. To save having to cut your flooring to make for an accurate fitting around objects, your best option would be to lift any obstructions and lay your flooring under it without any extra cutting. This will ensure complete accuracy and means you can avoid having to measure and cut the flooring in order to perfectly fit around your bathroom ware.
- What is the best size of floor tile for the kitchen?
Tiles come in all shapes and sizes, and the variety can make it difficult in choosing what one to go with. The size of tile you choose will depend on the style and size of your space. For a kitchen, generally speaking, a good size range is from 8-inches to 12-inches, with the upper amount being for kitchens on the larger side, and vice versa. Larger tiles are also great for adding to the airy feel in an open kitchen, but for a smaller space, opt for smaller tiles for a uniform look that isn’t too overbearing.
Take measurements of your floor space by both length and width and use the square footage to help create a template to allow a planning of tile space and shape, ensuring you consider any furniture that you have to work around.
- What is the best size of floor tile for the bathroom?
Just like choosing tiles for your kitchen, it’s best to keep the size of your tiles relative to the size of your space. The general recommended size range for bathroom tiles is 2-inches to 8-inches. If you have a spacious bathroom, large tiles can expand the feeling of spaciousness even more, but avoid tiles that are too large as this could overwhelm your space. It is also not uncommon to use two different types of tiles in the bathroom, so ensure the different sizes of tiles will complement each other. Bathrooms will generally benefit from smaller tiles and their smaller size makes them the perfect place for more delicate or intricate patterns, which will be achieved more efficiently with smaller tiles. As done in your kitchen, measure out your floor space to get your square footage and plan your tile space and style around that.
