Of course, the other great aspect of using these squares is that people often have a go at laying it for themselves. It is easier than the normal fitted kind and not so difficult that someone moderately sensible can have a go at. Indeed, there is no need to stick all of these squares down as long as the ones on the edge are adhered to the floor. What they do is to form a frame for the other ones to sit tightly in which means that they will not shift around when people are walking or sitting on them.
Of course, laying down new flooring is never very simple. For the squares, the floor in any room must be cleared and the floor marked up to ensure that the squares are put in straight. The center of the room should be found and this is where the work will begin from. Although many people will think that laying the flooring along one wall to start the process is the correct thing to do, in fact, this could make the room look a little odd in the end. With the vagaries of the building trade, some rooms are not perfectly squared off and this then is where problems become apparent, but only after the majority of the flooring has been laid. Better then to start from the middle out so that the look of the room is kept symmetrical.
