ok so i know that someone has already started a thread regarding wood flooring, but i didnt wanna hijack there topic plus im looking for laminate flooring rather than real wood. im looking for like a pine or beach effect kinda colour, something light. ive seen some in homebase for £7.99 per sq metre, but was wondering if it might be any cheaper online. the room is 11ft wide and 16ft in lenght. any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Basically your local B&Q or homebase wait for a 10% off day, focus Grab a pensioner on a Tuesday 10% off or anyone working at Argos 10% off staff discount for homebase.
Not really cheap on the internet unless you go for the high end material and the delivery is the problem with the weight unless you buy quite a substantial amount

If you have kids though who are likely to drop drinks don't forget the cheap stuff is not normally waterproof not an issue if no kids but we have only had ours down about a month and it has seen plenty of juice on it.

Have a go yourself!
Noticed this the other day which would help with fitting.
It is for Ikea flooring but if you click on the LEFT icon, its the same as most laminate.

Its not too bad to fit. Tricky bit is around the doors and to make sure your final row is not too thin. The glueless stuff which is supposed to click together easily doesn't (unless your room is only 1 board in length). I've found that 2 of you tilting a whole row and some gentle persuasive taps usually work. First 3 rows can be a bit tricky but after that it gets a bit easier as everything is squared up by then. Don't forget the spacers round the edge otherwise the floor will move as you tap in additional rows.

Wickes do some nice project leaflets and below is the link to the laminate flooring leaflet
http://www.wickes.co.uk/content/ebiz/wickes/resources/images/gil/53.pdf

Fixing the trim round the edge can be a problem. This is easier to get a nice fit if you borrow/use a power mitre saw and a air nailer/pinner.....

Now you have the wood I suggest you check each plank to make sure none of the lips/edges have been bashed. I've usually had about 10% bashed due to poor handling in the store....

And you might want to find a nice cushion for your knees!!

why don't you try a small bedroom first? then if you make a mess of it - it doesn't matter too much?

If you can saw along a line (even unevenly) you can do it. DIY is a little bit of appitude, alot of commonsense and a bit of confidence..... If you have a mate who's done something like this before invite him/her round to help you get started.

On re-reading this it sounds a bit patronising - don't mean it to be ....

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!
