Installing laminate flooring around a fireplace is not difficult. One of the main things to consider when installing this type of flooring in your home or office, is that you will need to have enough room for it. If you are not careful, the fireplaces might be too close to each other and it can cause problems when trying to install laminate flooring.
To start off with, measure out the area where you want the new flooring installed. This includes measuring from one corner all the way across until you reach another corner on the opposite side of the room. Once your measurements are done take note of how much space there is between fireplaces so they do not overlap once installed. If there is not enough room to fit all the laminate flooring between them, it might be best to remove one of the fireplaces.
Once you know how much space you will need for your new laminate flooring, take note if the fireplace has any vents or other features on its surface area. If so make sure they are taken into consideration when measuring the space. Sometimes it might be necessary to remove them if they are not flush with the wall or very hard to cut around, otherwise it can cause problems for you during installation.
Once measured and all notes have been taken care of, start installing your new laminate flooring starting at one corner of the room. The first piece will need to cover up any wires that run along the baseboard making sure there is enough overhang on each end so that no cables or cords show underneath once installed. Once this has been done lay down a few pieces in front of the fireplace near where you plan on placing your furniture later on, then measure out how much more needs to come before reaching its resting place against another wall across from it.
Once the first piece has been laid down, you can start installing others around it to make sure they meet up correctly and that everything is where it should be before continuing on with laying them all together in different rows like a puzzle until reaching the other side of the room. It might take some time but if done right this type of decorating will give your home or office an entirely new look for very little cost compared to redoing tiled floors or having hardwood installed instead which would need replacing after years go by due to wear and tear.
Lastly, make sure once finished no wires are showing along any edges you may have missed during installation without cutting too much away from each end because this could cause problems further down the road when trying to use them. Remember, if done correctly it should be very easy to do and the end result will look beautiful for years to come without any issues whatsoever.
