Vinyl Install Materials List
- Select Surfaces Sandbank Vinyl Flooring
- Vinyl Flooring Cutter – THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER
- Install Kit
- 6 Mill Plastic
After installing Select Surfaces Harbor Gray Vinyl throughout our basement (more on that HERE), there was no doubt in my mind that we would use Select Surfaces again! In the design phase of my sons room, I knew that I wanted more of a wood look. Sandbank features a unique mix of beige and cool brown tones combined with a darker grain pattern – EXACTLY what I was looking for!
As I’ve stated before, installing your own flooring can save you thousands of dollars in labor cost. Once you get in the groove the process is simple and totally worth the effort!
Just like with our Harbor Gray Vinyl, the simple click installation system allows the planks to easily click together, requiring little to no effort and making this product extremely DIY-friendly. Once the floors were swept clean, I started by laying the 6-mil plastic directly onto the concrete. Select Surfaces Vinyl has as attached foam backer eliminating the need additional padding. If you were installing on sub floor you would not need the plastic. Starting in the in the back left corner of the room, I worked my way from left to right laying the flooring.
Once you get your first few rows straight, the process flies. I was able to do his entire room in just one afternoon. If it weren’t for baseball, I would have gotten the closet done too! If your more of a visual person, I documented the install on my Instagram Stories, HERE.
I love laying trim up throughout the process to really visualize the finished look. Plus it makes it easier to quickly install once all the flooring is down!
