Installing Quick-Step vinyl?

Found your favourite vinyl floor? Then you’ll no doubt want to start enjoying it as soon as possible. Let an experienced installer take care of the installation for you or roll up your sleeves… — the choice is yours.

How to install your vinyl floor?

Quick-Step Livyn luxury vinyl floors don’t just look natural, they are naturally easy to install, too.

On top of that, Quick-Step vinyl is compatible with underfloor heating and can be used to finish or renovate any staircase.

Floating installation

Opting for a floating installation? Then you’ll need to choose an underlay first. This will have a major impact on the final look, quality and comfort of your Quick-Step vinyl floor. That’s why our experts recommend the dedicated Quick-Step Livyn underlays.

Do you have your underlay covered? Then it’s time to get cracking — or rather: ‘clicking’. The patented 'Uniclic Multifit' for Livyn click system ensures smooth sailing when installing Livyn luxury vinyl. Thanks to the hardy tongue and groove system, you can lay the floor planks with a single ‘click’, and you won’t even need a drop of glue or any other material. Could this be any easier?
