19th January 2016 20:36Hi Wollies, we need to decide on our flooring this week for our new house and am in two minds about tiles or laminate. Pros for tiles: nice, clean look and continues down the hall into the kitchen, seamless link, also handy to clean and scratch-resistant. Cons: COLD...... no underfloor heating, might make hall look a bit bland (pale cream shiny tiles) Pros for laminate: love the look of a wooden floor, easy to clean, potentially as scratch-resistant as tiles, nice contrast to walls and matches living room floor Cons: laminate instead of wood - will it look/sound cheap? Love the sound of wood, you can always tell when you're on laminate! H2B is pretty indecisive, I'm leaning towards the laminate but afraid to make the wrong decision!
