    B&Q have a good selection also Homebase and Wickes, We were thinking of getting some for our dining/office room a while ago then thought of going down the real wood 'laminate' type needless to say we thought it was a bit dear and still have not bothered. I wish we had stuck to our original idea!! :confused:

    Try out the smaller local places, you can usually bargain them down a bit. I also got some from the Wooden Floor Warehouse on the Boucher Road
    My Doctor told me that "1 out of 3 people who start smoking will eventually die." The other two apparently became immortal.

    Another one to consider is possibly floors 2 go?? I am not sure what the prices are like, but they seem to have quite a few branches springing up round NI now. Might be worth a look??

    Here's the web address for you:

    For standard Laminate I would say B&Q, wouldn't try Floors2go. I visited the Portadown store and they couldn't match B&Q.

    The best deal you'll get at the moment is at the floor store. We got got some branded Ac3 graded (light commerical) textured vgroove stuff on sale. It was down from £13 a square metre to £6. The equiv stuff in eveywhere else (b&q, homebase, floors2go) ranges from £13-£25

    Hope that helps.

    i would give a word of warning. Avoid the cheapest stuff from B&Q its not very robust. Will work fine somewhere like a spare room but not in a livingroom. Some of the 'clicky' bits broke off as i was fitting it.

    Worries me a bit when i come to doing the living room. How do i know what stuff is good or bad?
