Definitely go for wet if you can. It stays hot for hours after its turns off.
Also 36sq+ electric will be much more expensive to run compared to wet.
I ordered a set from this company last year for our extension (not hallways etc) comes with nearly everything you need in one set

​how expensive is it? if I was to get 20sqm would that be OK? only because we won't need to warm the bottom of the sofa and kitchen unit

When you say comes with nearly everything you need, what else was required please?

Also for the OP I've had laminate and real wood and wouldn't ever go back to laminate again. Just my personal choice. It was noisy and easily damaged. You can walk barefoot on real wood and it's still comfortable and fairly quiet.

Prices are shown in that listing when you select your required sqm.
You need to carefully check all your measurements properly and remember you may not want the sofa there in the future. So its might be worth heating under there as you can never change once done (i did)
Its a fairly big job, but if its for an extention (new floor) its not that much extra as its a new building being built.
If its not for a new room, then its a big job

Cant remember exactly what else, I think plumber charged for a few extra bits and pipes to connect to boiler, but not much. You basically have your whole set-up.

If you need any more info just ask them,

I just realised you want laminate im not sure whether that would be good in the longrun, sounds like floor iwould warp over time.
We had really nice tiles, it contains the heat better than anything else, as they have the best thermal conductivity.
You can get 'wood' looking tiles which look really stunning

We used this place, so much cheaper than the shops

to answer your question would it be sufficient to keep u warm no if u are not having any other type of heating laminate doest warm up a room. are you having a radiator or a gas heater in that room if not u will need underfloor heating it's nice under floor. like people have said before electric will be more expensive to run but maybe bit cheaper to buy and install . cheapest would probably be a traditional radiator though.
