Laying carpet fields
When you think that laying carpets is time-consuming and complex, think again. Carpet is one of the simplest carpet surfaces to be laid. Just place the square on the ground; tape and the back of the carpet keep it in place. Or if you don't need a carpet, these places are great for carpets.
It is also simple to clear, substitute or exchange fields. Contaminated panels in the kitchen sinks can be cleaned or replaced. Rug modules are slightly more costly than most traditional rugs, but a carpet upholstery is not necessary and you are saving by the installation itself. Here we show you how to lay and trim the carpet to avoid obstructions such as doorposts.
It' s almost silly to install - you can simply lift and relocate incorrectly aligned square. One measuring strip and one crayon line to snatch your base lines, and a carpenter's angle and a universal cutter to trim the squares will do the work. The most difficult part with virtually limitless carpet choices can be the choice of designs.
You must choose the desired marker before you begin, as the marks have different field heights. Outline the room to measure and paint the square with coloured pens or marks (photo 1). It draws your eye to any part of the room that is not square. When possible, leave at least 4 inch wide carpets along each side of the walls.
You will see how many fields of each colour you need in your finished design. Define the number of square meters of the room by doubling the length by the width (rounding up the measurement to the next foot). With irregularly formed rooms, split the ground into separate segments, compute the square meters of each room and then sum them up.
Ordering the carpet and add another 10 per cent for the wastage. Carpet tiles can be laid directly on top of cement, birch, plywood, chipboard, as well as on top of vinyls, tiles, laminates and some types of solid floor. When you later choose to take out the carpet, you will have to rework the timber.
Perform a humidity test (kits available in the home centres) before covering a cement surface with carpet. You can always waterproof the mortar and then lay the carpet if the humidity is too high. Every wooden underside or available bottom must be firmly, dryly and safely fixed. Unscrew the screws on free surfaces and substitute areas that are endangered by damp.
It is also the perfect moment to find and fix ground noises. Wipe the ground and then bend the crevices along the sides to form vertical outlines. Place carpet squares along both base rows, beginning in the middle. Peel off the protection foil, push the square firmly and glue it to the ground.
Put the last square of carpet face down against the walls and under the last square. Select it, tailor it with a carpet cutter and mount it. Clean the ground by cleaning or aspirating all dusts and chippings. Then select the position for the basic series on the basis of your drawing (photo 2).
Measuring and fixing your vertical base lines for these lines (photo 2). Place carpet square (without glue) along both base lines to test the layouts. When you have spaces of less than 4 inches next to your wall, move the layouts and capture new base lines. In order to set up the square, begin where the base lines cross and work outwards (photo 3).
Hold the pointing arrow (photo 4) on the back of the fields pointing in the same directions. Remove the foil from the tape and push each angle firmly against the previous one. Do not glue the last full square until you have trimmed the square to measure (photo 4). Once you have trimmed the angle, insert two tapes so that there is one in each of the four edges.
The end pieces are then glued together. An universal cutter is good for square trimming, but we recommend a carpet cutter because it is more precise. Trim the square on a flat face, as with fibreboard. Place carpet square in each square, beginning in the middle and outwards. Glue only the rectangles along the base lines and partitions.
Begin with the basic series in the middle and fill in the quads with a "step pattern" (photo 5). Just squeeze each square firmly against neighboring ones and keep the carpet lines out of the seams. They can be changed quickly and effortlessly to create a more appealing look even when glued.
Clean with cleaning spirit if glue residues remain. Position a carpet angle at the top right of an arc gate and align it with the fitted square. Highlight the position of the carpet walls at the edge of the carpet. Turn the box over and use a highlighter and a carpenter's square to create the mural from the markers you just made.
Trim against the square edges for a clean line. Mount the bracket against the arched doorway. Adjust the incision finely if necessary to ensure that the angle exactly matches. Apply the contour to a square of carpet and trim the square. Trim fillers from waste to close spaces between panels and panels.
Wrap the pieces in position and then smoothen them by using your hands. Impact the carpet against the carpet in neighbouring rooms or lay it over the edges of the neighbouring carpet. The most difficult part of the task is to cut carpets that match external edges, archways and doorposts. Begin by placing a square against the area of the arched arch that overlaps and is oriented with the previously placed square (photo 6).
Select the carpet on each side of the partition, then place the same square against the side of the partition and select it. Draw out your pattern using the markings with the square of your joiner as a reference (photo 7). You can use the same technique to select and notch square shapes that match around a corner.
First, create a cardboard stencil around carpets around uneven obstructions, such as door posts with angle cladding. As soon as the pattern matches, draw the contour on the back of a carpet square and crop it out (photo 9). Don't be afraid, if the cutting is not flawless and you end up with a hole, the fields are very forbearing!
You just need to slice a small carpet from a waste item and insert it firmly into the slot (photo 10). As the carpet does not dissolve, no sleeper stripes are necessary. Instead, you can easily knock against the covering in the adjacent room or the available sill ( picture 11). Once all the fields are in place, suck off the soil.
It is unavoidable that something will get on the ground at some point, but carpets are easily cleaned. When the spilled is not wiped off, take off the square and wash with wash basin solution. Leave it to drip and put it back in the ground. If you have fields with durable spots, simply substitute the old field with a new one.
