It was a rough couple of days between the carpet install and the next day all the cleaning and putting things back where they belong...but it's finished! It was a mess but it's finished and we are happy with the results. We should have done it two years ago! The carpet is soft which I like a lot. It is covering a multitude of scratches. I don't have to listen to Ruby's nails clip-clopping along during the night. The dog is a pacer - she moves back and from from the living room to our bedroom probably 7 times a night and I'm a light sleeper! Now we can just enjoy!!! Photo is mine.

@AbbyGreenhill I don't mind vacuuming as long as it isn't one of those old heavy vacs!

This room looks very nice, it looks bigger now. I am also a light sleeper, I can imagine the clip-clopping of Ruby.

It does 'feel' bigger so does the bedroom. One of the rentals we stay at in Pigeon Forge has laminate floors and the clip clop there with Ruby's nails is horrible!

@AbbyGreenhill The laminate floors are very noisy, I could not live in a house with laminate floors.

The room is beautiful. I hope it won't be too much of a problem to vacuum up the pup hair ..... just be glad you don't have cats.

Ruby sheds worse than cats believe me! At least this way the hair will stay on the carpet and not fly all over the house. (I hope)

That is what my husband said, but our floors aren't cold, we have a basement. The floors are colder in summer when I have a/c blasting!

Your new carpet looks very nice and I'm sure Ruby will enjoy a softer place to relax. I have hardwood throughout the house and I do miss carpeting at times

For us, carpet is easier to take care of..we still have hardwood in many rooms. It will be fine, I'm happy.

I really wish we had the money to do some of the remodeling, etc on our house like we are wanting to do. It could really use it. We definitely want to remove some of the carpeting, and install new vinyl in our kitchen. But yours looks really nice.
