Today we returned to the flooring shop, having decided to place our order for a laminate floating floor.  After all our to-ing and fro-ing about bamboo, engineered hardwood and laminate, we returned to our first ever love - the laminate!

We've done laminate timber in most of our houses, and it really is extremely durable and child-friendly.  It also helped that we found the perfect colour to go with our carpet, wall colour and overall decor plan for the house.

So, without further ado, here it is (up against the fancy carpet)...

Parador Trendtime 6 Laminate Flooring in Oak Castell Smoked Brushed Texture.

Carpet Call at Alderley did a great deal on both of the carpets and the main flooring, so if you're in the area and in need of floor coverings, check them out!

In other news, I've been decluttering and clearing out like nobody's business.  Vinnies will be happy with their loot tomorrow, I'm sure!  I hope you're having a great weekend!


  1. Love that dark colour - looks amazing!

  2. i love the dark colours too. you are so organised. i still have no idea.

  3. And the most organised person in blogland goes to .... M!


    Great choice as always <3


  4. Very smart and practical choice with the laminate. I wasn't so sensible and chose floating oak timbers floors. My heart sinks every time I see the dog and cat chasing each other through the dining room - there are scratch marks everywhere!
