OK. I've FINALLY made a decision on the flooring. I've gone back to my original choice of Boral Silkwood for few reasons. Firstly it's great quality and easy to lay, it has a 7mm veneer that can be sanded back, it comes in a colour that matches the staircase and most importantly, I've got it down to a price that's within my budget!
I was seriously looking at bamboo, but there were a few things that didn't work for me. Firstly, the shininess of it made it look a bit like laminex to me, especially with the bevelled lines. Apparently also you can't get them wet...at all! That's not very practical for a clumsy person like me with a teenage son and his friends.
So decision made....finally.
