Once I decided to lay down new flooring in my dining room, I did not waste any time in putting together a plan. I had debated on whether I should hire a professional to install it for me, but after reading https://www.buildexpo.org/diy-vinyl-flooring-a-step-by-step-guide-on-how-to-install-vinyl-flooring-in-singapore/ I knew that I could properly lay down the floor on my own. This website was very informative on everything I would need, both with tools and expertise, and I knew that I could do it.
The first thing I did was measure the dining room. I am glad that I read the instructions on how to measure a room because I would have done it wrong. I would have just measured wall to wall and purchased that much material. Instead, I knew to add several inches to each side to allow for cutting the vinyl to fit in the corners and edges.
Next, I knew that I was going to have to determine whether I would need an underlayment or if the subfloor would be good enough to lay the vinyl right on. The floor was already pretty smooth with just a couple of rough spots. I was able to sand those down to where the floor was even across the entire room. That part was a little messier than I expected, but it saved me time and money by doing that myself.
After that, I just had to cut the vinyl flooring, I thought the hardest part would be the corners, but I just followed the instructions and even that was very easy to do. The rest was very easy to do. I had to apply the vinyl pieces to the subfloor, and make sure that I cut it very evenly against the wall and corners. It took me about six hours because I was going slow since it was my first time to do this, but the end result looks amazing.
