Perhaps the most important thing to learn when learning how to lay laminate flooring is that laminate flooring is not held to the floor boards so if you are gluing it or nailing it to the floor then stop now. Laminate floor is made up of compressed wood and as compressed wood needs room to move when the climate changes outside. If you secure the laminate floor to the floor boards it will cause it to crack when it starts to move. That is the reason why you install it in a frame instead of securing it to the floor board.

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.
