Filed under: real-estate — arandomperson @ 1:56 pm

Just pasting some stuff on flooring found on the web:

my guestimates for the loungeroom is 26 m2
two bedrooms all up 31 m2

will measure more precisely on pre-settlement inspection.

found on ebay, laminate flooring from $13/m2
http://www.tiptopfloors.com.au/ – located in Springvale.

also: (NSW though) http://stores.ebay.com.au/Ankors

Style Plantation Bamboo floating floors is $50/m2 at Bunnings, it looks really nice from the demo boards on display there.

Some of the Bunnings laminate flooring looked cheap and nasty, some of it looked not bad at all. Seems very durable. between $13 and $25 per m2.

Mentioned on propertyinvest forum:
http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/20137078 $19.94 / m2
http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/90082181 $14.95 / m2

Ikea bamboo flooring:
http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/40080877 $45.00 / m2
looks really nice, maybe easy to install cos it’s Ikea? not solid bamboo, bamboo on a base of cheaper stuff? Googling for KVIST gives mixed reviews, some like it, some don’t.
