cheapest price I have seen for laminate? Anyone actually knows if this is any decent? Thinking about getting myself for a room where I don't want to spend much.

Didn't mean to like your comment... It is still cheap
Seems a good price. It's quite thin and I suspect not too hard wearing, so maybe not suitable for high traffic areas. If you do get it then make sure you put a plastic sheet and some foam underlay on it to even out the underlying floor. Use a sharp saw to reduce the risk of chipping the laminate off the top, and just take your time. The thinner stuff like this tends to be quite unforgiving of rough handling. Otherwise looks a decent price
I'm looking for a nice solid floor, but I don't want spend too much.. Does anybody knows any nice deals?

Cheap is sometimes dear, been at my house 7 years and just laid the floor for the third time. Can't remember the first make but the second was Elka flooring, very poor. Quick step is the very best quality. Chose 2 other makes before quick step just to save £2 or £3 a pack, go with quick step!!!!
I have this in my 18m2 garage and it is pretty good for the price. It was the cheapest laminate I could find. Been down 2 years and no issues at all.
Honestly think a cheap carpet would make more sense at this price than laminate.

Thank for that.
This laminate floor is too thin. In my personal opinion a minimum of 8mm is a must. Have done my whole house, each room from a different store/manufacturer 8-10mm). I have decided to put 6mm in the guest bedroom (hardly used) and must admit it was my worst decision.

Yeah you really do get what you pay for with laminate.

We've just laid 2 lots of flooring. One room was £4/m² (6mm) one was £14/m² (12mm). You can probably guess which one went down in about 2 hours and which took closer to 4/5. With the decent stuff, I didn't even have to use a hammer.

We just laminated our living room from b&q, my husband signed up for trade point (don't need your own business anymore, just a trade if you know anyone it's worth it) and we got great laminate for about £11 per m2 rather than the usual £18 - saves a fair bit if doing a large room

Thanks for that great tip @annawright. I have 40m2 to do and was looking at their laminate flooring which would be suitable for underfloor heating and in a kitchen (splashproof). Does anyone have any recommendations on what looks good and doesn't feel tacky?

the whole B&Q including their tradepoint is just rip-off! You can find stuff elsewhere for much cheaper even with their super-mega-trade-only-discounts!
If you're after very good quality laminate, then this site seems to be the cheapest: bigwarehousesale.co.uk/pro…te/

just had a look on here, they look okay but thickness is only 7mm and from what people are saying that's not enough

edit: actually there is some 8mm as well

I'm sorry if I sound negative, particularly as its my first ever comment on this forum but B&Q tradepoint is a waste of time you don't get charged any different to the public. you are much better off shopping around and if what you want compares favourbley
typing on mobile, got posted by mistake..
I was saying.. if it compares favorably then by all means by it don't fall for the gimmick.
Just Bought 18m2 of the laminate, well... it looks cheap, the design is rather ok. however only 6mm .
and the packaging is so bad that I cut my hands on it already 3times, 2of them while in shop
and BTW FUK U IKEA for making me walk 20minutes through all your labirints to get where I need,seriously the worst damn shop in universe!

Not sure how this will hold up as most of the ''furniture'' they sell at ikea is complete tat and rubbish.
Will post picture once laid.

Having experienced how difficult it is to lay cheaper and thinner laminate, I would definatley recommend going for the best you can afford. You'll really regret not buying something better when comes to actually laying it.
So, judging by the name this is for those who don't clean behind the fridge then!?
Terrible laminate, a friend has used it.
No thanks!

well honestly I have it on for 2weeks already and for the price it was great ( only because the prices for laminate in uk are just stupid in first place...).
It went on pretty much perfect,and so far seems like its of the same quality as probably 2x more expensive ones.
It might have helped tho that I have laid a couple of floors before this so already had experience, but for the price it def. isn't bad!
This being the second time I have done our floors in 10 years, it is cheap and you do get what you pay for. It's not the hardest wearing in the slightest and water is a bad thing for it but it does the job if you are on a real budget. Try not to use it in areas that do get real wet like near your front door and when you clean it, don't flood mop it, use a method that isn't too wet. The joins will eventually swell and lift and then constant walking on those edges wears them back down taking the laminate off.

Think logically and you can save some money with this stuff if you are like me, at least get some flooring down that doesn't cost the earth (£45.20 to £56.50 12-15sqm) for the average room and looks a whole lot better than typical 50 year old floorboards.

Face facts, this stuff doesn't wear well in soaking high wearing conditions. That is what ruins the look quickly and some of the £5-£10spm laminate is no different.

It is very easy to fit and the only thing I would recommend is a decent £10 Stanley or equivalent fine tooth saw. Ask in B&Q or equivalent for the better tooth quality saw to cut them.

Now with all that said, I have this in my front door hall way and it will cost maybe £22 to replace it in maybe a years time if it is destroyed by then. I may spend a bit extra on a better one or just buy a clear plastic run to cover it.
