With 3 BIG dogs, the house stinks. They are generally kept out of the main bedroom, but after being in this place a over a year now even just them coming in and out of the room has been enough for the original wool carpet to have soaked up the dog stench. They are house dogs, part of the family so they're always inside when we're in generally. Very open plan house, wood floors though 90% of it aside form:- 1 - TV 'sofa room, one of those sort of open plan ones that's it's own room but off the side of the hall, the hall/dining/kitchen is all timber floor, this room light wool carpet. I want to lay a hard floor that contracts with the wood floor adjacent, One option is just get the same floor as the rest of the house and continue it but I think a contrast would be better? I don't like tiled floors in living areas, wondering if anyone has seen anything a bit different to the casual wood planking? There'l be a big rug in the middle to soften it up. 2 - Main bedroom, big room that continues through walk-in robes and into a hidden nook. Currently all wool carpet which I really hate. If shows all the dirt, I don't like the feel under foot and is sheds constantly so take 5-6 empties of the hoover every time you vacuum. This room is/can be closed off completely from the main house so doesn't need to tie in with the rest of the floors. Again, don;t like tile and want a hard surface, we like rugs though so easy to break up the space. Any ideas for something s little different than just regular click-lock planking? Cheers.
