Can I fit Designflooring myself?
Designflooring is not a DIY product. Your local retailer will provide a supply and fit service - or will be able to recommend someone who can. 


How do I get Designflooring fitted?
Your local retailer will provide you with a supply and fit service, or will be able to recommend a fitter. Designflooring is not a DIY product, so we would advise that you do not fit the floor yourself unless you are an experienced luxury vinyl floor fitter. 


Is there anything I need to do before the floor is laid?
Prior to laying Designflooring, products must be acclimatised to room temperature. Remove material from packaging, spread out and allow to condition in the room where installation is to take place at a constant temperature of 18 °C - 26 °C for a period of 24 hours prior to installation.


This temperature should be maintained during installation and for a 24 hour period after installation.


What are the correct room conditions for installation?
The room should be a constant temperature of between 18 - 26 °C, for 24 hours prior to installing, during the installation, and for 24 hours after installation.
