Define his linoleum project.
Before rolling up your sleeves and throwing yourself headlong into laying lino, it is better to prepare to determine your needs and plan everything necessary. To guide you in your project, HandymanDuDimanche invites you to define and plan it to leave nothing to chance! Be careful not to confuse lino coatings with PVC floors, much cheaper coatings, but also less solid.
Step 1: Define required skills.
Accessible to all, the pose of lino does not require any particular skill.
Step 2: Define the construction time and the necessary manpower.
The larger the area to cover, the longer the site will be.
To speed up the work, you can attack multiple pieces simultaneously, counting one person per piece.
However, it is quite possible to consider to lay his own lino.
Step 3: When to begin construction
It is quite conceivable to start this type of work at any season.

To put lino you will need a very basic equipment and accessible to all: special lino glue or double-sided tape, a sharp knife or scissors, a flat blade, a metal ruler and a plaster knife.
Step 5: Define and choose the necessary products and materials.
Linoleum comes in a wide range of colors and perfectly mimics other flooring such as parquet and tiles. Everyone can choose the model that suits him according to his tastes and his budget.
It can be packaged as slabs or rolls.
Step 6: estimate the budget.
The lino remains relatively expensive, from thirty euros per square meter.
