We had cheap crappy cream carpets installed in our bedrooms just before we bought it.
My hubby won't do tiles or wood in the bedrooms (side question - who has and loves wooden floors in bedrooms). So I am stuck with carpet which is filthy and gross, buT the upside is ds1 can run around nappy free, drawing on it with crayons and I can laugh at the accidents rather than cry (not a common event but you know what I mean)
So my question is, at what age would you 'trust' your kids not to wreck nice new carpets. It seems stupid to install new nice ones just to be trashed, even if they are superior in their stain resistance etc and I don't want to turn into an overprotective-carpet obsessed mum. Option b is install cheap n nasty ones with a view to replacing them in five to eight years (these ones are 8yr old). Option c is love what I have for a few more years/until they drive me insane.
what is everyone's thoughts?
