    Just a note that you can have laminate floating or you can direct stick it toa surface so that you avoid the "tappy" sound that some have. Bamboo is an excellent option too. Look into it. It is heavy, so not tappy and it is environmentally friendly, cheaper than timber and comes in all the same looks as timber. Very good option!

    Thanks, although it seems our current floor has had issues with the stick down component so I'm thinking we will probably go with a floating floor to try to avoid that problem

    Re the bamboo; do you have any ideas on what they're worth per Sqm?

    Depends on what you get, you'd have to approach a flooring place and find out. It varies depending on the look, thickness etc.

    Oh that's a bit annoying .

    Anyway we need to wait for the insurance company to decide first --
    I'm getting a bit peeved it's been a week since the assessor was out and no reply yet. I'll ring them Tuesday if I still haven't heard .

    The assessment is in.

    They won't cover it - deemed as keeping the building maintained.

    So now the decisions just get real... Pay to remove, replace with a floating floor (& all the options you've all put forward) or replace with tiles????

    Decisions. Decisions. Costly bloody decisions! 😡

    So an update - we've booked to have the tiles removed mid October and it turns out there's near on 90sqm to be covered by flooring.

    Our old tiles were white .... I think the decision is between these two:

    The carpet is chocolate brown. Please help me decide !

    I would go the the lighter if your carpet is chocolate brown. Are they tiles?
