I love our new carpet!

At some point I will post a picture of the fantastic mauve beauty that used to be up here but for now I am reveling in the most favorite of things: our new wall to wall carpet.

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!

More mess...

And then voila!!!!

I reckon carpet's great when you get it right and that looks superb. I like the appearance and it looks durable and comfy too, just what you want for a long-life floor covering in the bedroom area. We've always gone for tough easy clean surfaces but are now considering carpet for the bedroom - thinking about wool sisal-look now. Hmmm...

I agree; carpet makes a difference! I thought I always wanted hardwood flooring until I got it. It’s never comfortable, although it did look nice. Comfort is more important to me. Carpet can be difficult to keep clean, but the darker color should be easy to maintain. And you'll definitely appreciate your decision to install carpet during winter!
