In my old house I craved all wooden floors; wooden floors were nice and modern, they looked the part and were easy to clean. By the time we sold the house we had wooden floors in every room bar the tiled kitchen; the only carpet in the house was on the stairs. Several years and a new home later and I am now seeking the comfort that only carpet can bring.
Wooden floors may look the part, but I much prefer to step out of bed onto a soft, comfortable carpet than onto a cold, wooden floor.
We peeled the carpets back in our new home to reveal the original flooring, we could have restored this, and we did consider it, but instead we decided to cover it up with a luxury carpet. No longer do we step out of bed onto cold, hard flooring. We now step out of bed and allow our feet to sink into luxurious, cosy carpet.
I had previously been naive in my thinking that I needed wooden floor as, assuming that you pick the right one, carpets too can look the part and be easy to clean. We opted for Cormar Highland Saxony carpet in chrome for our and Aria’s bedrooms. It’s a luxury heavyweight, stain resistant carpet in the most beautiful of colours. Not only does it look the part but it also feels the part, providing comfort, cosiness and warmth.
Being the owners of a toddler, two cats and a puppy we were hesitant about carpet, especially such a light carpet, but we needn’t worry as Cormar Highland Saxony carpet is stain resistant and easy clean.
The carpet has definitely been a winner for us, Aria and Dobby like to sleep on it, roll on it and play on it, it has withstood a lot of puppy potty training related stains, and even the carpet fitter mentioned that it is one of his favourite carpets to work with.
*Disclosure – we received the carpet in exchange for an honest review*
