How can I cut or saw a Laminate floor?

Unfortunately, a laminate floor doesn’t come in the size of your room. This means you’ll need to saw some of your boards to make them fit. We’ll show you how to use three different kinds of saws.


Sawing your boards can actually be done with a regular handsaw. Make a small cut first and then saw on! It’s ideal for shortening laminate boards. Some tips to make it easier: put your saw line as close as possible to your bearing surface and don’t forget to firmly hold the piece you’re sawing off.


A jigsaw is a real all-rounder when it comes to cutting laminate floors. It’s best used to cut out shapes from your board. For example, when you want to place boards around your toilet or maybe a pillar. Always use a fine toothed blade and have the saw blade spinning before you touch the board.

Pro-tip: test the direction of the teeth on the saw blade of your jigsaw. It’ll show you if you have to saw up or down with the board’s design. By doing this, you’ll always get a nice cut.

Crosscut saw, plunger saw or table saw:

Angles and corners are these saws’ specialities. Set the angle you need on your machine, secure the board and start sawing. Watch your fingers!
