Shannon, you have great videos. I’m putting down linoleum on a basefloor. Wondering what adhesive you can recommend? I live in Arizona (US). If you know of a product here in the US I can use, please let me know. Thanks!

Whats the advantage of this vinyl flooring ? i want to install on the bathroom coz i like the looks of laminate flooring but laminate flooring cant be on the water. Does it feel and looks like laminate flooring ?

What do you think about using vinyl tape instead of glue for a bathroom like this?

I’m a DIY moron, these videos are so thorough, and helpful it really gives me the confidence to try to tackle one of these without getting halfway through and having to call for bail-out help from a pro. Thanks for doing them.

When I do the Job Like this I like to finish painting corners to same time painting again.
Laying around the Pipes it’s best to cut from middle and using tool get a round hole to keep it tidy.

Kara Artrip says:

You freaking rock! Very informative in an easy to understand way. My kitchen has carpet that I need out ASAP, but no time to get tile laid anytime soon. Can’t wait to throw down some vinyl, and glad I found your video so at least my temporary floor will look decent in the meantime. You’ve saved me a lot of hassle!

Costello Mack says:

I would’ve used a larger glue trowel. This glue job should’ve only taken 5 minutes.

LindazVideos says:

We are installing vinyl flooring in a 5 ft bathroom. It is for a condo and the Association requires us to install a sound barrier pad. The bathroom currently has some old white ugly tile floor.

Is it possible to glue the pad to the tile, and glue the vinyl to the pad? It will be a little thick, but it shouldnt be an issue with the toilet or door.

The vinyl flooring will go in the bathroom area with the toilet and tub/shower.

Leidy J. Carabali says:

Lo máximo, me sirve de mucha ayuda para hacerlo en mi baño, thank you!

Jenny Truch says:

this was wonderful. THANK YOU! this helped me get started after I had been sitting for weeks paralyzed by fear if making a mistake. the tips you told as you were working helped me install a very attractive bathroom floor! great channel!

1OfdaKoldest says:

so the “patch” is also acting as a sealant for the particle wood? Im surprised at the use of particle wood in the bathroom.

chad wright says:

This should be ” how to install vinyl with minimum amount of tools”. Get a proper roller and a proper trowel for starters. Absolutely no reason to flash a brand new subfloor. Nail off ply seams (min 2inch)and flash. Dont bother flashing the imperfections in your subfloor if your going to just knee dents into it after its been glued. Get a piece of ply.

Neftali Camacho says:

Daniel Grall says:

Hey Shannon,
I’m currently remodeling my floors, we are going with a vinyl plank flooring (floating floors). Should I just use the same 3in1 underlayment/moisture barrier I would be using for other rooms, in the restroom as well? Or do I need to use a different type


Human angel says:

Thank you . good a pro job.
