For example, in bedrooms? We're having it fitted this week with the usual ply wood and a layer of sound absorbent insulation apparently. Husband is a bit worried about noise from bedrooms still. Any experiences of this type of insulation?

Just make sure everything has felt pads on it. Was shocked how easy it scratches.

Yes I didn't want carpets either. Hopefully the noise won't carry too much through the floor boards. If we like the Karndean we may get it fitted downstairs too - it's just so pricey though shock

Thanks Only. OK so all furniture to have pads stuck on... will cry if it scratches.

Ours is really dark with long wide plank effect so it's extremely noticeable. I imagine with different designs it's not as bad.

But yes, even watch really innocuous types of things like popping down a plastic washing basket and especially legs on items which you may think are smooth.

I'm sure it will look lovely though and upstairs it will have less wear.

I dislike hard floors upstairs. Noise, cold underfoot and dust bunnies are the main reasons for me.

Only - ours is one of the dark Art select ones (Santina Cherry). I think it'll look awesome. Putting a rug down in my toddlers room. I'm gonna have to watch him with 5 million toy cars on my new flooring. ..
