    LAMINATE FLOORING & INTERIOR DOORS...big ask

    OK meddled around for weeks. Finally I know what I want! I have to at least order flooring today, someone else will be fitting it.

    Going in hall and 2 lounges. Light / medium oak shade. Thin planks (have been told they make the room look wider?). Want the V groooves, looking for top quality

    Tesco and Wickes have got some really good looking deals on at the minute but just not sure about the quality (Westco).

    As well as that, really confusing working out how much I need. I have the measurements of the floor in sq m2 but packs seem to come in lots of different sizes.

    Also need x3 interior doors. Would like oak with etched / patterned glass in the top. Not seen much choice in these.

    Grateful for any suggestions guys

    the tesco boards we got was half price in the sale and really not good to fit! ikeas was the best we tried..we got the most expensive and even my teen daughter couldnt destroy it with her make-up etc..after 5yrs its as good as new.
    floors2go stuff was rubbish as was the sales people and after sales.
    have you looked at tops? or do you have howdens? im sue they will have the doors too.

    Many thanks. Back to the drawing board...:(

    Seems near impossible to compare prices of flooring because all come in different volume packs GGGrrrrr

    Just been out to a door shop, apparently just not possible to get oak glazed interior doors in 32" width. Not looking good day so far

    i found pine ones..

    call them ask trade price if you have a fitter you can ask to use their details?

    Many thanks but after good quality oak laminate. Fitter lined up

    Just hard to compare prices....unlike other products like washing machines etc

    Have been told that because of unusual door width (32"), will not be able to find internal oak doors with patterned etched glass (traditional and not contemporary design).

    I live in a very average late 40's semi. Surely cannot be that unusual oO

    It's simple to compare the price of laminate.
    All you need to do is to get the price per square metre.

    Thanks. Tried that in BQ the other day, assistant then said some packs contain more than others, so need to halve the price of the pack.

    So many varieties / brands to choose from. Have been told today that Pergo or quick step are good brands to look for. Just need to get it ordered now
