So we took that advice to heart and ended up gluing it down everywhere to avoid that possibility. My husband totally impressed me with his measuring skills. He decided he wanted to put it in all one piece...with no seams at all. And it had to go around corners, cabinets, into a pantry, etc. It was a complicated puzzle!
We ended up in the townhouse's clubhouse laying it out and measuring and eventually cutting the intricate shape that it required. Have you ever heard the saying, "Measure twice and cut once?" Well, its useful advice, let me tell ya! On our first measuring we were off around an inch and it threw off half of the whole shape. Thank goodness Mr. Warmth caught that!
So we measured and re-did it the second time and lo and behold it fit perfectly! Whew! You don't want to mess up on a cut of several hundred dollars worth of flooring...
The following three pictures are of it installed in our last place (the 2 bedroom townhome). I think it looked quite pretty, if I do say so myself.
