Installing wood look tile with laminated vinyl flooring has come a long way since . Today, glue-free or “liquid” laminates are available, made to resemble other materials, including ceramic tiles.

Place the skirting board outside the walls around the room, using your hammer and the bar. Keep it intact when you remove it. Set the first laminate tile in a corner of the floor, leaving 6 mm (1/4 inch) of space on the wall. Connect the next tile to one side of it, along the wall, also leaving a 6 mm (1/4 inch) gap. Lay additional washers along the entire length of the wall, leaving 6 mm (1/4 inch) gaps there. Cut the plate at the end of the row needed to fit, making the cut by adding a square over the tile. Driving your Stanley knife next to the square to score the piece, and then snapping the piece in two.
Put the second course of wood look tile alongside the first, keeping them in a grid pattern. Connecting them to each other when you put them. Cut the end pieces as needed. Repeat the process, work your way across the floor row by row. Cut the plates along the wall for the last row so there is a 6 mm (1/4 inch) slot left there. Install the floor trim, with your hammer and trim the nails so that it covers the gaps and holds down on the floor.
