When my wife told me that she wanted new flooring in the kitchen, I was surprised at the estimate I was given by a flooring company. I just wanted a simple vinyl flooring put in for her, but the cost was more than I thought I could afford. I did not give up hope though because I knew that she really wanted to have this flooring. I couldn’t blame her, as the old flooring was marked up a good bit and just did not look that good. I decided to see if I could put the flooring in myself.
I am not the kind of person who takes on do it yourself projects because I just have never had the time nor the inclination to do it on my own. It was just easier to hire someone if something needed to be done. I felt that I had the right skills to handle putting a new floor in, so I was excited once I priced the actual flooring at a local home improvement store. Before purchasing it, I went online to see if I could find a video or website that would explain how to put it in on my own.
I found a website that had extremely easy instructions along with pictures and videos that would help me with what I needed to do. It started out by explaining the tools that I would need as well as what all I would need to buy. I did end up having to buy a few inexpensive tools to get started, but I still saved a good chunk of money by following the instructions on the do it yourself website. The floor was easy to install, and my wife even helped me with it. We are thinking about doing some of the other rooms in the house now that we know how easy it is to install new flooring!
