This is my initial thought. I got a bulk of 8mm for the guest bedrooms and I'm not particularly enamoured with it compared to the same model 12mm I have in the kids room. Lovely finish but too much movement in it - maybe the underlay is too thick. I've got 18mm engineered all of downstairs and it's lovely but was expensive and in 2 years has a couple of really annoying scratches - yes they can be fixed but not got around to it yet. Laminate these days is a lot better than the stuff remember growing up with and knowing what I know now (after doing a handful of bedrooms) I would definitely consider it the next time I'm doing the main parts of a house. It looks like wood, has a grain finish, is substantially cheaper and had a 25 year warranty.
For those who mentioned Karndean and quickstep... what sort of prices are average for these?
Me too, I am moving to a new flat soon and on the look out.
I bought some drone Homebase last year. Every pack had damaged edges. Got a refund but it was a bit of a pain. Wickes is pretty good and they keep the same stock for a few years.
Oh my god, when I read the comments I thought 6mm was the top layer thickness, but it's the overall thickness! Don't even bother with this. Pay a lot more, get a good 20mm thick flooring with a real wood top layer. It'll look far better, and can be sanded twice instead of replacing the whole thing when it starts to show its age. Flimsy laminate like this is false economy.
