"Hi . It cannot be laid with a border as the click system on the lvt will not allow it. You would have to remove both tongue and groove from them and stick then border down and cut neatly into it. It's possible to do but would not guarantee your floor as that's not how it's meant to be laid . Hope this helps"

"The simple answer is not. LVT flooring is designed to be laid as a floating floor and being only 4-5mm thickness it not possible to attach a border on a floating installation.
There are other flooring options such as Karndeen or Amtico that are designed to be glued to the subfloor and as such can be cut to desired size or shape since they have no jointing feature such as click or T&G."

"Hi, No the only way that you can achieve a border with herringbone is by gluing down ( either with LVT or tongue and groove wood)"

"No this can not be done as herringbone has a toungue and groove and doesent allow border also needs expansion gap"

"Hi it can’t be done as the click system needs an expansion gap , if the border was stuck down along side it this would not give any room for the click lvt to expand
Hope this helps"

"Not meant to be but yes just lay as normal and cut round edges the width of your border but you'll have to be spot on or it will look messy ."

"its possible using a trim to join the border to the herringbone section. you'd get a better finish using a stick down LVT as you wont need a trim."
