Laying some laminate flooring in my bedroom diagonally. This is the same floor that I have going throughout the house, and I'm trying to not have joins between rooms - the floor flows through the entire downstairs.
Jigsaw (with a laminate floor blade, but I don't think it makes that much difference)
Rubber mallet - for giving the boards a tap if they're not doing what you want them to.
Pencil stolen from Ikea for marking the boards
I started doing it yesterday and I thought I would do it, but I only got as far as the hallway. Now I've got all day on just this room so I'm hoping to have the floor down and the skirting board done too.
This is how much I've done at the moment.
As you can see from the above shot, the offcuts from the one end fit flushly with the other side, so wastage is potentially zero if you have a perfectly square room. You probably don't though.
Will post updates as I go, or when it's finished.
