Install Preparation Tips

Planning: Regardless of whether you hire a professional or do–it–yourself (DIY), there are steps prior to installation that must be taken. First things first: the removal of all furniture, appliances, and area rugs. Protect your furniture from dust and installation debris by designating a secluded spot for these items until installation is complete. Also determine where you plan on storing the shipment of linoleum once it arrives.

Time: Before purchasing linoleum materials, take the time to research linoleum floor types, styles, and options. If you are planning a do–it–yourself project, also make sure to leave yourself ample time to complete the project. In most cases, DIY'ers under budget their time and wind up rushing the job at the very end.

Full Project Budgeting: Use our financing chart to keep track of your linoleum floor budget; this will ensure that you've accounted for the cost of all of the necessary products and materials. Don't forget to add in fees for custom work and accessories.
