    Pergo flooring alternatives 6th Feb 10 at 9:07 PM
    Hi everyone out there!
    I need to put a new floor in our extension - 45m square in total. Do you have any advice on flooring you'd recommend for the following situation:
    - high traffic area, includes dining room, extension and kitchen
    - baby crawling around
    - two teenage boys
    - pets (cat)

    I loved the look of pergo laminate whitewashed floorboards, (a white floor would look so nordic and spacious!) but discovered that it's 35 per square metre! Anyone out there tried vinyl as a good looking cheap alternative? Or is there a laminate out there that's as good as pergo?

    thanks for any advice,
    Cath

    I'm a bit of a marmoleum fan and have it for my kitchen and bathrooms and it still looks good as new after 5 years. The pergo looks pretty good from the website - it's good to see that there are quality alternatives to carpets (which I hate!)

    As well as Pergo, another excellent laminate brand is Quick Step. They have a large selection of wood colours and styles to choose from. Very easy to install.
