Clear blue skies, a little wind and sunny today.
I'm just ordering laminate flooring for the bedroom,decided against carpet, (I hate vacuums) and it's so easy to install,got a good deal online
£5.95 plus vat a square metre,reduced from £33.95 a metre, will keep me busy for half a day.

Best of luck laying it mate, I laid some in our Kitchen some years back and had a game doing so. I wasn't too keen on the result afterwards but I put up with it for a few years until I had it up and tiled the floor. The tiles have been down for about 20 years now without a problem. Don't you think it will be a little cold for a bedroom, still I imagine anything is better than the bare boards we had as kids.

Phil, I find it very easy to put down, ( I've done about 7 for various people) and I prefer the ease of cleaning it, cold doesn't bother me.
Yes bare boards with holes in was the norm,we have become too soft and mommy cuddled nowadays,about time we went back to the war years
would be a harsh lesson for todays kids I'm afraid, but I'm sure it would benefit them in so many ways, (no bloody mobile phones for a start).

I don't know about mobile phones, but my mother never had a phone of any sort in her house until about 1990, and I think she still had lino in her bedrooms until the day she died last year.

Although I haven't done domestic work for quite a few years, laminate flooring was one of the many many reasons I started to avoid it.
Often the people who love it so much have dogs and an aversion to using a vacuum cleaner, or in fact any sort of cleaning. They are also more likely to have a load of plug-in air fresheners, which are near the top of my list of most hated domestic dangers.
The result from my point of view is a slippery, dirty, scratched and badly fitted, inpenetrable floor that I can barely see anyway through my tears of allergy.

I have no doubt Signman's floor will be lovely, but they are few and far between in my limited experience.

Volty

Dogs should not be allowed into living areas. I try to enforce this in my household, but it is a waste of time when the kids are visiting. My wife is a maniac with the vacuum cleaner and vacs the ground floor of the house at least twice a day and at the slightest whiff of the dog the air freshener spray comes out. We don't use plug in's because I like yourself don't think they are safe.

Morning all,fab morning here in Tewkesbury,hope it lasts.

Well I have taken old carpet up and have floorboards.I like the look but that is all.I still wiggle my toes in the matsLOL so I will go the same way as John but purely because of Dog Hair.In the winter the carpet tends to get marked and I have had enough of it,if I had all day to spend cleaning it is ok but there is a big world out there LOL

Hope you get some sun,not that awful wall of heat but warmish LOL

PS I am talking vinyl not laminate.
