Before you get started, take an honest inventory of your skills.  If you want to get good results, you have to be real. Have you successfully completed a similar project before? If you've regretted any of your previous DIY's, what were the mistakes you wouldn't make again?  If you're not sure, play it safe by selecting a flooring material that is specifically made for Do-It-Yourselfer's.  

1. 
Understand your subfloor
That's the floor underneath your floor. It's usually concrete or plywood. Depending on what it is, your project will require different floor prep.

2. Know and understand the installation instructions

They should be available through the flooring manufacturer, and it's critical that you follow them precisely. If you don't understand any part of the instructions, ask a professional or do more research.

3.
 Make sure you have all the right tools
The instructions will specify which tools you need, so buy or borrow them but either way make sure you know how to operate them. You don't want to skimp here either, the better your tools are, the better your project will turn out.
