Vinyl sheets are water-resistant, making them the perfect piece of flooring for bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Another added benefit is that they are cheap and so affordable! You can install a vinyl sheet flooring yourself by following these DIY steps below:


Things you will need

  • Trowel
  • Vinyl Sheet
  • Pry Bar
  • Measuring Tape
  • Adhesive
  • Putty Knife
  • Steel Hand Roller




  1. Measure the floor area of the room you want to lay the vinyl sheet. Measure the length and width of the floor to calculate it into square yards.


  1. Remove all the furniture and appliances from the room you will prepare for the flooring.


  1. Keep the floor dry for the installation, and if it is uneven from tile joints, or cracks, use a leveling compound to fill it up to smoothen the floor. Remove any dust or dirt from it before you start.


  1. Set the room temperature to 15 degrees Celsius.


  1. Unroll the vinyl flooring and cut it according to the size you have measured.


  1. Keep in mind; the sheet direction should be according to the main light source.


  1. This is how the sheet will be installed according to room size:


  • Small room: installation through a loose-lay, by simply laying the vinyl floor on the top of the subfloor.
  • Medium room: make a semi-loose installation, in which you will use a double-faced duct tape around it and the floor to secure it.
  • Large room: a proper glued installation, where you use an adhesive to place the flooring.
