I am installing laminate flooring in a new garden room, which will be heated over the winter. However I haven't got a heater for the room.

Do I need to get a heater for the room and get it to the temperatures it will get to during normal use. I.e. 20 degrees during the day and then whatever it drops to overnight. (For 48 hours)

to be honest a garden room can be anything a non insulated poor quality shed to a room complying fully to building regs particularly full insulation requirement ??
so need more information on general construction and general overall quality levels

as an aside
you can store the flooring in the house unwrapped for a few weeks is a slightly colder on average room [perhaps 14-16 degrees] to average out expansion levels then 10mm all round gap should be more than enough

Timber built, not to building regs but fully insulated and retains heat very well, once heated.

Laminate not really suitable for garden room .Temperature is not a concern, humidity will be the problem.
