Cutting seams

Where a seam is necessary, lay the second piece of vinyl over the first so that the pattern matches up. Lay a metal straight edge over the two pieces of vinyl where the seam is to be. Try to place the seam on the line of any pattern as the seam will be less noticeable there. Cut along the straight edge through both pieces of vinyl; the edges should fit perfectly together.

Fixing and gluing

Sheet vinyl sold for domestic use is usually the cushioned type that is used without an adhesive, although some gluing is necessarv in certain areas near doorways, around heavy objects that might be moved, dragging the vinyl with them, and on any seams. Use a special vinyl-to-floor double-sided tape or an acrylic vinyl floor adhesive to secure the floor-covering, following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Cutting around obstacles

The easiest way of cutting around obstacles such as a washbasin is to make a paper template. Lining paper is an excellent material for this. If necessary, stick several sheets together to make a sufficiently large sheet. Make a release cut in the paper so that you can position the paper around the obstacle with the cut side against the skirting board. Make a second release cut at 90 degrees to the first, and then continue to make a series of release cuts until the paper lies flat around the obstruction. Fold each flap of paper so that it creases into the corner between the floor and the obstacle. Mark the creases with a pencil line, lift the paper away, and cut along the lines to form the template.

Next you must loosely fit the vinyl in order to trim the edge at the skirting board. Make release cuts in the vinyl at 90 degrees from each other, just as in the initial stage of making the paper template. Position the vinyl around the obstacle and trim it all along the skirting. Then pull the vinyl away from the obstacle. Tape together the first release cut in the paper template so that the shape of the obstacle is clearly defined.

Position the template over the vinyl so that the edges of the paper and vinyl correspond and the release cuts in the vinyl match up with the edges of the hole in the paper. Mark and cut the hole out of the vinyl and then refit the vinyl into position.

Alternatively, adapt the method you employed to fit your vinyl flush to the first wall ( 170171). Use a block of wood as an amateur profile gauge. With a pencil, scribe around the obstacle on the outside of the block onto a paper template. This template will already need to have been roughly cut to fit around the obstacle. Next, place the template over the vinyl (allowing for the depth of the vinyl to the skirting). Line the outer edge of the block up with the
