Modern Update

Who Lives Here?

Kathryn and her family.

The Brief

Q: Why Carpet?

A: We renovated a few years ago and although floorboards seemed like the practical choice, we found this room was always noisy and the kids didnt want to play on the floor. We decided to update the room and thought it would be a good time to put carpet down on this area too.

Q: What style were you trying to create in this room?

A: We wanted it to be modern but also relaxed and comfortable. We saw an image in one of the lifestyle magazines with colours we liked and went from there.

The Result

Q: How did you decide on the style and colour of your carpet? 

A: When we realised we knew nothing about carpet we did some research on the internet. That's when we first became aware of Godfrey Hirst carpets. After that we knew we wanted a loop pile in a fairly neutral colour.

Q: When would you look at changing your carpet again?

A: We like to keep up with trends so we will probably replace our carpet again in maybe five years!

Q: What advice would you give to someone buying carpet?

A: Do lots of research first so you have a good idea what you want before you go into the store.
