This type of flooring is a floating floor. Hence, you do not have to use nails or glue for the installation. It can be placed directly on top of the subfloor or underlayment. Also, you do not have to worry about cutting the flooring. You can cut both types using something as simple as a hand saw or utility knife.
05 of 06 Renovating the bathroom

Compared to the other places in the house, repairing your bathroom can prove to be a little challenging. This is why you should always start with a small bathroom. You can perform tasks like installing ceramic floor tiles. It is a small-scale task but will require a lot of effort and time. If you want to take up more challenging tasks, you can consider installing a bathroom vanity. However, do not try to rush with it. Since you are a beginner, the process can take some time. You may require a day or two for completing the process. There are small electrical tasks in the bathroom as well. From installing a few electrical outlets and a bathroom exhaust fan to the lighting, every task can be completed by you. However, avoid installing a geyser as the task is quite complicated and you may make mistakes.
06 of 06 Installing a door in your home interiorsYou should avoid installing your entrance door as it tends to be very heavy and the task is more complicated. Not only will installing it be more difficult but also you will not be able to move it properly. However, this is not the case with doors installed in your home decor. They are lighter than entrance doors and you can easily handle them even when you are working alone. Moreover, you do not have to worry about your door being completely sealed and keep the interiors unaffected by the weather changes outside.
