Well we lived in Apt: for 25yrs and are moving into our brand new house and my wife says let's lay some Laminate Flooring!! , So we are going to try to put Laminate Flooring in 2 bathrooms both '6x'7 and '7x'6.
What is the first step make a template? The only thing in there is a tub and cabinet in one the other has a cabinet and shower on the other the toilets are not install yet. We bought the Laminate , glue and something like a roller to get any air pockets out.

Are you sure you mean laminate? It isn't glued and should not be put in a bathroom. Do you mean vinyl (linoleum)?

Going to need a toothed trowl to spread the glue. Should say right on the can which one to use.
Make sure you remove any 1/4 round. Under cut all door trim so the material can be slid in under it so the seam does not show.
Going to have to lay it even with the middle of the door opening and need some form of transition strip to cover the seam.
Make sure to remove the vanity or pedistal sink.
Remove the door so it does not keep getting in the way.
When you rough cut it make the cuts about 2" bigger then it needs to be and trim it once it's in place.
