Quotes for fitting even a roll of cheap lino are coming back extortionate so we will be installing ourselves.
Now we are cutting out the labour costs I am tempted to get a better floor. We are pretty capable but don't want to be at it for days on end. It's only 4-5 m sq.
Would laminate be a bad choice considering there will be a sink in there? Or hard vinyl tiles eg Karndean be better? Are they easy to install? Also we are limited to B&Q stock as only have a week to get this done and ordering in will take too ling.
Hmm. Thanks for replies. I'm not sure ruling is an option as a) we don't have clearance under doors etc and b) I'm not sure we could manage that ourselves. But we'll definitely looki into it, maybe I could push myself!
DH, DFiL and I tiled our utility floor ourselves one Saturday. The bit before we went to the pub is great - the bit after we came back from the pub, not so much. Still, we put the fridge on top of that bit.
Well, it prob won't give you any idea as we are not in the UK. But we were quoted a totally of £400ish inc Lino, to lay 5m2 of £17psm Lino. So £300 for fitting.
Tiling also costs a bomb here. In fact any labour does and there isn't a lot to choose from so they can get away with it.
I think we're going with laminate, purely because I don't think I can get screeding etc done in a short time. Laminate I can just roll out underlay and click click click. I think the floor is mostly cement but we realised today that only half the floor is cement and half is wood. With a gap in between.No idea why. But presumably we'd have to lay a base first before tile adhesive?
