I can’t believe I’m going to look at carpet today. I’ve always thought of having hardwoods throughout my new home, and while that will be the case on the first floor, I’ve had a change of heart about the upstairs.
There’s something comforting to me about a soft carpeted floor to step on to when I first wake up. I’m loving the look of the carpet in the bedroom above that I found on Houzz. Right now I’m waking up and stepping on to plywood floors covered with cardboard boxes to prevent splinters. I’m over it.
Perhaps it’s because the house I grew up in had carpet in the bedroom, or maybe it’s just what I like, but I’ve decided to forgo hardwoods in the bedrooms and do carpet in stead…for now. Looking ahead to the future, I think I like that a nursery and child’s room anyways.
I may regret the decision later on, but it’s what we want to do for now.

So, how fun is it talking about carpet, eh? ERRRRR–lame. Oh well. I guess not all of my home updates will be as exciting as an HGTV living room or a massive kitchen transformation (I can’t WAIT to do my kitchen!).
I’m off to measure my rooms upstairs before heading to browse some carpets. I’m leaning towards a nice, soft berber. I’ll let you know when I get back!
