Bolero (UTF) Laminate Timber Flooring

I have been trying to get some more info on the flooring we have chosen but because I am not having any success I thought that I may as well be the first to put something out there on our blog about it and share as many pics as I have taken.

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.
Colours all lined up at the showroom

Rustic Coffee Again?



The Bolero Sample Sheets in at Hopetoun. We chose 4th from the right - Dusty Rock. But have not ever seen an IRL pic of it; expect the ones we took ourselves!
Rustic Anthracite
Comparing the colour Bolero and I think maybe Rustic stone? Floor samples were availabe on loan from the tile company.

  5. Look forward to the pics we are also building the Drysdale and after much thought have decided to go with the bolero the only problem is my husband likes the rustic coffee and I prefer the Nougat and it's really hard to decide when there is no where to see what it looks like fully laid. So good for you starting this off.

  6. Since laminated flooring is made of composite timber material, laminated together, it has hard wearing top coat, which won't suffer from dents easily as Timber - So girls you can still wear your high heel stilettos. Thanks for the images.

  7. Thanks for this information above Pip, it definitely helped us. To help others, the new display (Dunedin 29) that has just opened up at Ambrosia in Cranbourne has the Bolero flooring laid. It is great to actually see it through the house.
