How to Get an Accurate Cut
Some people like to make measurement adjustments directly on the tile or laminate and then cut when lying on the flooring. Here is a tip that can save you from making a mistake on that expensive material and ensure a perfect cut; USE A PIECE OF PAPER FIRST. Here I cut out the desired measurements needed to fit around the frame of the door and molding.
1. Take a piece of paper and make measurements on it.
2. Cut out with scissors
3. Place the piece of cut paper where you would lay the tile. If too big, cut down. If too small start over with a new piece of paper making needed adjustments.
4. Once you have the template right, trace on the new tile and cut.
