We ripped up the carpet in our living room and hallway and put down wood laminate. It cost about $800 but that was with my husband installing it. It just depends on the quality of materials and any labor costs. I love it though, sooo easy to clean. If something spills just wipe it up, no dragging out the carpet cleaner!

Yeah it's pretty easy once you get going. I think most kinds the pieces just lock into place. The only thing that is a pain is when you have to start making cuts, they have to be very precise. You could always see how much Lowe's or Home Depot would charge for installation. Good luck!
