Do I have to use glue to lay vinyl flooring?
Hi there, My final project will be new vinyl floors in both my kitchen laundry room. The reason I do not want to use the glue compound is b/c I might plan on changing the floor in a few years. With the hope that remove will be easy. I have seen a few videos on YouTube say that you can seal just the corners. Please don't beat me up too bad as I am an amateur going in blind when it comes to home improvement projects. And willing to listen to experienced advise.

You have to glue it down.

Glueless vinyl is pretty thick and should lay down under its own weight. Just follow the manufacturer instructions and be sure to put some trim around the edges (quarter round, baseboard, etc) so it doesn't curl. There is also some double-sided tape you can use for spots you are worried might come up. A good quality product should last just fine.
