Before I had kids, I really didn't like wall to wall carpet. It gets ugly really fast and I feel like it houses all the dust and dirt that you can't see. But once I had kids and found myself sitting on the floor a lot, I realized how nice a good carpet is. And in a bedroom, well it's really nice underfoot.
So for the rooms under the roof which will inevitably be the master and maybe the kids rooms, I chose a wool sisal look alike rug. It took me a while to find a reasonably priced wood rug bit when I did, I went for it. And while ordering, the sales associate next to the woman helping me remarked - "This is a Neiman Marcus Rug at Gap pricing. You can get a better bang for your buck" My kind of rug.
And well, I knew it would make a difference...but really, the difference is dreamier than I thought!
And then voila!!!!
