Laminate flooring expands and contracts on its own, so keep proper spacing for it. For this, keep a space of about 10 mm between adjoining boards. The boards should be laid lengthways and they should face the light source present in the room.

Start laying the board from the wall and it should be parallel to the wall. Keep spacers between the board and the wall. Place the next board in such a manner that tongues of first and next board get interlocked. Both boards should be laid end-to-end to each other.

Strengthen the laminate as you go on. To achieve, both boards should balance each other. This can be done by placing half board on the start of the second row and bend the longer side of the board at 30 degrees. Just lock both boards by just moving a bit forward and down at the same time.

While placing the last row, you may find that it is not fitting perfectly. You can cut the board and place this in right position. Remove the spacers after placing flooring is laid. Use the laminate flooring trim to fill the gaps left by spacers.

Apply adhesive on the trims and press it hard on the floor to let it fit properly.
