I thought about using carpet for the campervan flooring, but in the end decided it would be just too hard to keep clean. Instead I used laminate flooring (the same type I used for the drawer fronts of the kitchen unit).
To give a neat finish around the edges, I had to dismantle some of the fascias around the seats and kitchen while I installed the flooring. These were re-fitted after I was finished.
I used a thin foam underlay beneath the flooring. It was really easy to lay and clipped together like a jigsaw. I cut it to size using a Stanley knife. This was used to cover the entirety of the floor space and also a little way under the bed, where the fridge would stand.
Next I began laying the laminate flooring, staggering the joints and orientating it lengthways between the kitchen and the bed. I cut the pieces to size when needed using a clean cutting jigsaw blade. Starting at the sliding door, I worked across to the other side of the van and made sure I left an expansion gap around the edges. I tucked the edges of the flooring under the bottom of the wall cladding, to create a neat finish.
I glued pieces of laminate around the entrance step and then glued lengths of aluminium angle over the corners for protection.
When finished, I was pleased to still have plenty head room when I was stood up in the van.
