The JTS and I have talked about the need for new flooring for a few years now. We’ve danced all around the subject but never got down to brass tacks.
We purchased our current home in 1988 and the house was built in 1967. Before we moved in we had carpet installed in all the bedrooms and the living room.
We are still walking on that carpet. I’m not sure it was meant to last 27 or 28 years but it’s held up well. I did the math and the cost of our carpet averaged less than 50 cents per day. Buying high quality carpeting is a big investment but one that pays off big time.
The carpet in our large den is newer than the other carpeting. When we bought the house the carpet in this room was fairly new so we didn’t replace it. I think it was installed about 20 years ago. Because the room is large the carpet had to be seamed. In some areas the seams are fraying.

selecting new flooring
If we choose to go with carpeting again, I like this style for the den. It’s simple and elegant and happens to be really soft. Miss Sofi has us get down on the floor and play dollhouse with her when she comes over.

The light tones of this flooring are perfect. I can see this in the bedrooms.
I might select a rug to compliment the wood flooring in our master bedroom. Shaw has a program called Cut-A_Rug and I can select the style, the color, the border, the shape, and the size. I think that’s everything. You guys know me, I would go bold with the rug. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw this floor. Perfect for the bathrooms. The two home improvement projects that give you the most bang for the buck are paint and flooring. Choose the right flooring, paint your walls a coordinating color, and go from there.
