Flooring Project Guide

The best projects have good plans

From identifying what you want to achieve, to choosing your style and product and then actually making it all happen, there’s a lot to think about.

We’ve developed a range of simple planning tools and resources to help you set your tasks, organise your contractors and stick to budget.

A few hours planning at the beginning, is likely to make sure you get what you want, when you need it and without the headache.

Whether you’re just putting down a floor, or it’s part of a larger project, the only way to avoid snags and make it go smoothly is to plan it.

We’ve created an easy editable timeline for you, listing most of the things you’ll have to think about, and also let you add your own.

Everyone wants to deliver on time, to plan and on budget.

It’s important to have all your contacts in one handy place. In case you’re late home and the other half needs to call someone, or your contractors need to get a hold of each other, or of you even.

Create your project contact list, and keep in a central place where everyone can find the right details for the person they need.
