I am sick of our disgusting carpet - I vacuum twice a day and it always looks grotty because it's stained. It was pristine when we moved in here two years ago and we only have one child! It's only going to get worse.
Everyone is telling me to keep the carpet but I do really love the look of timber floors and it would be so much easier in terms of cleaning up messes.
- what do you see as the pros and cons of timber floors - I know they scratch easily and can be cold.
- who do I get to do them? DIY would be a nightmare, DH could do it but he's slow. Do I call a builder? A carpenter? Do I buy the floorboards myself and get someone to install them?
- would we need to move out for a few days while it happens? I guess so...
- what is your experience?
