How to install your vinyl floor

Quick-Step luxury vinyl floors don’t just look natural, they are naturally easy to install too with our floating installation system.

No matter what you decide, 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?

Why you'll love the 'Uniclic Multifit' click system

Thanks to the patented Uniclic Multifit for Livyn click system, our vinyl floors can be installed in no time using three different installation methods, including drop-down.

  • QUICK: the installation of vinyl boards has never been faster.

  • EASY: use the method that works best for you and that avoids damaging your floor panels.

  • SEAMLESS: say goodbye to open joints and to dirt that could get stuck in between.

  • SOLID: the improved drop-down technology provides extra strength thanks to the vertical and horizontal locking.
