I'm just watching a channel 4 program (on catch up) about negotiating on kitchens - might be worth watching to get an idea how to get a good deal? link to it on 4od

Thanks Sprakle, I am off to look at flooring on Sunday so will see how toddler proof it is and how the quote comes in... [Eeeeekkkk!].

MedicPeso, I guess asking won't hurt.

Sparkle, that is a really good price for karndean... I love their blond oak parquet flooring but can't decide if it is toddler proof or not!

Of course it's not rude to ask, it's sensible smile.

Talk to them, get a price, ask for a discount based on the fact that its a reasonable sized job, ask if that's the best they can offer, then leave saying that you need to think about it / get some other quotes. They'll have at least 1 or 2 steps down that they can take, so make sure that they take them!

I am moving into a new build house next month and need to carpet throughout... would it be rude to ask the carpet shop for a discount if I was buying carpets and underlay for four bedrooms, lounge/diner, hall, stairs and landing as well as them fitting it all. I'm looking at over £2500 sad and that's before I tile two bathrooms, kitchen and utility.

Off to price up blinds next...
