I’m getting ready to start install of LVP on first floor. Attached is drawing of the first floor. Some specific notes and questions:
– I’m on a concrete slab. Currently I have three types of flooring: tile in the foyer; carpet in the living, dining, family room; sheet vinyl in the kitchen, guest bath, and laundry room.
– I’ll be installing LVP with Quiet Walk underlayment (black) in all areas except the family room and guest bedroom (noted in the drawing)
– Dimensions of LVP on the drawing and pic attached
– I’m going to start in two bathrooms upstairs before tackling this larger downstairs area, I think.
– Where should I start? I imagine that the direction will be East/West because of the long run from the main entrance all the way back to the kitchen.
– I’m likely going to demo the tile in the foyer. Would you recommend this or to keep the tile? (pic attached)
– I should be able to install over the sheet vinyl in the bathroom and kitchen, correct? (pic of current transition from carpet to sheet vinyl attached)
– There is also one decent sized divot in the kitchen. Looks like someone dropped something round and heavy at some point. Will I just need to fill this in? (pic attached)
– Right now, the entryway from the laundry room into the house is carpeted. I’d like to cut the carpet there and move the transition to the north keeping carpet in the family room, but having LVP from that entryway into the house. Is that ok? (pic attached)
– Do I install LVP under the range and dishwasher? There is currently no sheet vinyl under the dishwasher. There was sheet vinyl under the range, but it was coming up, so I cut it up already.
Thanks so much for your help with all of this, and I look forward to getting started with your guidance! Please let me know if there is any additional information you need from me to get started.
