I have decided that I am going to put a new vinyl floor in my kitchen and I want to do it myself, so that I can save some money on the installation. I am trying to find the best price online to buy LVT underlayment, so that I can use that to place below the vinyl flooring that I will install. I think that LVT is a good choice of material for the project, because of its acoustic properties. Some of my younger children have their bedrooms adjacent to the kitchen, and they go to sleep much earlier than their older siblings.
Said older siblings have a tendency to use the kitchen late at night, and can often make a good bit of noise, until my wife or I comes out to yell at them. Hopefully by installing an underlayment iwth good acoustic properties underneath the new vinyl floor, we will be able to cut down on some of the noise generated by people using the kitchen late at night.
I am really excited about doing this project on my own, and I will cross my fingers and hope that I do a good job on it. On the surface, it does appear to be a pretty easy job to do. In particular, I am kind of worried about how hard it will be to cut the vinyl. I don’t think it should be tricky, but I am not really sure at the same time. I have never done it before, and I think it needs to be cut pretty close to exactly in order to fit right with the measurements of the kitchen. From what I’ve read and watched on the subject, that is going to be the trickiest part of the whole project, but I am not sure.
