You can find different types of vinyl flooring options, the most popular are:

STEP 1: Prepare your subfloor

First, you’ll need to inspect the subfloor. While Alpha Vinyl can handle most irregularities, we highly recommend making sure the surface is level, stable and clean, and to remove all existing floor covering before getting started.

How big can the joints in your existing tile floor be? How can you level out irregularities? What about underfloor heating?

STEP 2: Choose your underlay

The right underlay will result in a better-looking, more stable and comfortable floor. We offer several underlays that are suitable for Alpha Vinyl.

STEP 3: Collect your tools

Save yourself a few trips and make sure you have the following tools handy:

  • a hammer
  • a saw that’s suitable for vinyl
  • a mouth mask
  • a tape measure
  • safety glasses
  • a bevel to measure the corners
  • tape to fix your underlay
  • cleaning material
  • a thin piece of rope
  • gloves
  • a pencil
  • levelling compound
  • calculator
  • a Quick-Step installation set containing a pull-bar, spacers, and a tapping block

STEP 4: Install your underlay

It’s about to go down! Roll out your underlay (step 2) and push it as closely as possible against the wall. Lay one row at a time and make sure you go in the same direction as you plan to lay your floor (see step 5). Use adhesive tape to attach the rows together and prevent damage.

STEP 5: Start laying your Alpha Vinyl floor

  1. First, check how many full rows of planks you will need by dividing the width of the room by the width of a plank.
  2. Make a mark on the wall where you’ll be laying your last full plank. The last plank should be at least 5 cm wide to ensure easy installation.
  3. Unpack your planks and mix them up to avoid laying identical patterns and colour variations too close together.
  4. For best results, start laying your first row of Alpha Vinyl planks in line with the longest wall, but not flush against it (as walls are hardly ever perfectly straight).
  5. Make sure to alternate your alignment so that end joints of successive rows are never in line. We recommend at least 30 cm between them.
  6. Click the first plank of the second row into the first plank of the first row (see video) and keep going like that.
  7. Alpha Vinyl is not intended for “glued-down” installation.

STEP 6: Cut your Alpha Vinyl floor

Inevitably, you’ll need to cut your Alpha Vinyl planks to complete your floor. Wear gloves and use a pencil to draw your cutting lines. Always saw your planks with the top surface decoration facing upwards.

STEP 7: Finish your Alpha Vinyl floor in style

Almost there! Now, it’s time to complete the picture with matching skirting boards and finishing profiles and other finer touches. After all, it’s all in the details!
