ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1383022032.786017.jpg this is our timber laminate floor - everyone loves it, we just got the thicker, better quality one and paid to have it installed - they did an awesome job! I think these are 12mm thick rather than the standard 8mm - it makes a huge difference - they look so much better, and it wasn't that much more expensive.
it's all the way through our house, even in the bedrooms
We love that it is quiet underfoot, and easy to keep clean. I also would recommend making sure you get a good underlay, I think it makes all the difference

my landlord put down ****ty laminate last year its crap, impossible to keep clean, cant vacuum, it has holes in it already and i take as good care of it as i can with 2 children at home, considering moving out for the sole purpose of getting better flooring.
I guess moral of the story is get good laminate.

We put timber look vinyl down in our playroom about 3 years ago, because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on flooring for the kids to destroy. I was a bit hesitant at first (grew up with vinyl flooring in the 70's!) but these days it's brilliant. We've had heaps of people mistake it for real floorboards, and three years later it still looks like new. It's quiet and soft, cleans up beautifully and doesn't matter if things get spilt. You can get really hard wearing ones now too, ours has a 20 year guarantee. I honestly don't think you can go past it, especially for a rental. Definitely worth looking at anyway

I would maybe put tiles down. I have lived in two rentals with timber laminate. Like some other people have said it is hard to keep clean, as soon as anyone walks on it even with no shoes it leaves a footprint. It is hard, and does look a little cheap.

We ripped up all the carpet in our bedrooms 3 years ago and had timber laminate floating floors installed. After 3 years they are still ok but I would think they will need to be replaced in another 3.
