Keeping this in view, which is tongue and which is Groove?
Tongue and Groove Basics Here's how it works: One side of a tongue and groove board has a protruding ridge (the tongue) that runs the entire length of the board, while the other side of the board has a groove from end to end.
Beside above, what does tongue and groove flooring look like? Tongue-and-groove flooring is made up of individual boards with special interlocking edges that are hidden once the boards are installed in the finished surface. Each piece has a tongue (a continuous ridge or tab) along one side and one end of the board and a groove (a channel) along the other side edge and end.
Secondly, which side of laminate do you start with?
Planks are always installed from left to right. It is not at all difficult to lay Pergo laminate flooring, but before you start you should make sure you have prepared everything correctly. Then all you have to do is follow the installation instructions.
Where do you start tongue and groove flooring?
Start at the corner of the room and place the first board with the tongue facing toward the wall. Be sure to leave a gap of about a ½-inch so the floor has room to expand and contract.
