My girlfriend looked at linoleum kitchen flooring when we were in the home improvement store and she fell in love with a color and pattern she saw. She decided she had to have this floating linoleum flooring to replace the old and worn linoleum rug she had on her kitchen floor.
I'm not an expert on home improvement or installing floors, but the salesman made the project sound simple, and I didn't want to admit that I couldn't do a simple job, as he explained it. Anyway, all was going well enough until I got a couple rows of the floor attached and locked into place. When I began adding more rows, the previous rows would pop out of place and I would have to go back and secure them before I could proceed.
I put the entire floor together and then took it back apart several times because I could not get all of the small spaces closed where the sections were supposed to lock together. Finally, I decided well enough was going to have to do because I was not getting any better the more I worked with it.
After reading this article, I now understand what the problem with the flooring is. My girlfriend lives in an old house and kitchen is not level. And I don't mean it is a little off kilter. The floor has dips and slants that are noticeable. I wish I had read this article before I did the installation.
