    Hello, I want to put vinyl flooring in a 50 sq. ft. master-bath. I'm thinking of the click-vinyl flooring. Everything is removed from the bathroom except the bathtub.

    I just installed a floating clic-lock bamboo hardwood floor in my dining room, kitchen and a hallway. The hallway and the dining room both butt up to carpet (having new carpet installed soon).

    I enter my home into a large open room, first foyer, to the left dining room and directly ahead a large great room. Then I'm facing a wall of 18' windows... very bright. Do I lay the floors with all the short ends across the windows and the long ends on the side? So they will look like they are...

    hi, can anyone help? I saw an answer to a previous post on this, that you need to leave a quarter inch space round floating laminate flooring. We have bulges (blamed it on the puppy for peeing on it, initially), which I now realise is because the floor was layed badly by the previous owner...
