Our Living Room Renovation: Installing Pergo XP Flooring DIY Project
Our new flooring is installed!
Just before the holidays our Pergo® XP Flooring arrived and Daddy Digger and I started the installation in hopes to have it done before the holiday. Neither of us has installed laminate or wood flooring before so it was all new to us but we decided to take it on because we had heard it wasn’t too hard to do.
Well… It was SO easy! In a matter of a weekend we had the entire area covered in our new lovely flooring, we started on Saturday afternoon and by Sunday evening it was complete. Once a plank was cut to size by Daddy Digger, I would install it and with just a couple days and teamwork it was complete! Installing each each plank was very simple! Each plank has a locking mechanism, called Pergo® Perfectfold™ joint technology, and each piece would snap and secure into place. It was actually really fun and reminded me of putting a puzzle together. After just a few rows were installed we stood back and were excited about how perfect it is! The Handscraped Oak style was such a perfect choice for the look we are trying to accomplish in the room. Here are a few pictures of our install process –
Here is a short video of me installing Pergo XP flooring, you can see how quick and easy it truly is. It made for a perfect DIY weekend project!
Our new flooring is absolutly perfect and I can’t get over how easy and quick it was for us to install ourselves! Plus, I love that it has the premium underlayment attached not only because it makes the floor quiet but because it also took one step out of the installation process. Our Pergo XP Laminate flooring looks just like real wood flooring and now we don’t have to worry about scratches, nicks and damage – it really is the best of both worlds!
The Handscraped Oak style we choose gives the room a very country/modern feel and has made the room so warm and inviting. AND, I’m so excited because as a Christmas gift my husband is having built-in bookshelves to go all around our bay window. I cannot wait to see the finished result of the renovation project and am so happy we decided to go with Pergo XP for our flooring! Over the next few months I’ll be sharing the before/after living room renovations and how our Pergo XP flooring has stood up to the high traffic and pets in our home!
