I chose Bolero Laminate Timber Flooring after a lot of research and hard thought and am very happy with the decision - even though it is not installed yet! So I will report back. Just wanted to put that here for anyone considering it. With a 1 and 3 year old and not yet complete as a family, I wanted something that could look reasonable despite the trashing I know it will get in the next 5 years and not cost me all of the other upgrades I had in mind for my new home, our first build.
Laminate flooring is one of the hardest wearing floor solutions on the market. No yukky grout so get discoloured as with tiles and no cold feet in winter; plus I just feel that even laminate feels more inviting as a floor solution particularly when dressed with rugs and other furniture.We were advised that the Bolero is being used as dance floor flooring and it has a 20 year warranty which was inviting.
We found a bunch of photos here plus the ones that we took ourselves are below.
