Before you start
Leave the vinyl sheet in a room for 24 to 48 hors before laying, preferably opened flat – or at least stood on end, loosely rolled. Make a scribing gauge by driving a bail through a wooden lath about lets say 50mm from the end. You will use this gauge for fitting the sheet against the skirtings.
Fitting and cutting sheet vinyl
Trimming to fit the door way
To fit the vinyl around the frame, crease it against the floor and trim off the waste. Make a straight cut across the opening, and fit a threshold bar to cover the edge.
Sticking and joining sheet vinyl
Joining strips of vinyl
If you have a join widths of vinyl, overlap the free edge with the second sheet until the pattern matches exactly. Cut through both pieces with a knife, then remove the waste strips. Without moving the sheets, fold back both cut edges and apply tape or adhesive, then press the join together.
Cutting to fit a curve
To fit around a WC pan or basin pedestal, fold back the sheet and piece it with a knife just above floor level; draw the blade up towards the edge of the sheet. Make triangular cuts around the base, gradually working around the curve until the sheet can lie flat on the floor. Crease, and cut off the waste.
