If you have a wood sub-floor then you will need a belt sander to smooth the surface. You might need to rent a jamb saw if you don't want to purchase one also. The jamb saw will be used to cut the door jamb and other trimmings so you have enough clearance for the flooring. A trowel will be used to smooth the leveling compound. The tools for preparation should cost you less than $100, including the cost for renting the saw. You will need many tools for the installation of the kitchen laminate flooring also. These tools include a backsaw and a miter box for cutting angles in the flooring. A circular saw is for straight cuts with a carbide tipped blade and a saber saw with a laminate blade will be used for cutting curves. You can rent saws from hardware stores if you do not want to purchase them for around $20 to $30 a day. The basic tools you will need for the installation of your laminate flooring in the kitchen will run you under $100.
One of the most appealing features of laminate floors is that they can be purchased about twenty five percent cheaper than comparable hardwoods. What this means for you as the consumer is that you can give your home the look you are trying to achieve without the high cost. Laminate flooring is glueless and made using a tongue-and-groove design, so it is far easier to install than hardwood flooring and can save you the cost of a professional installer. Laminate floors are called floating floors just for this very reason. Without having to use nails or glue to install your flooring makes it an easy task to do on your own, and you'll be able to accomplish the job quickly. Without the mess of using glue, clean up is a breeze. After you install your floor you can start living on it immediately which certainly beats having to wait for the glue to dry on a hardwood floor.
