Carpet One has inspired me to think about a bathroom makeover. This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias Inc and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #InspiredHome #CollectiveBias
A few years ago my husband and I bought our first home in a brand new neighborhood. We were lucky enough to purchase a home built from scratch, but at that time, every last penny went towards our down payment. (I'm sure many homeowners can relate) So, we had to forget about any fun upgrades, like granite counter tops, hardwood floors, and tile in the bathrooms, and just go with all the basics.
We love our home, but a while after moving in, we were eager to make it our own with a few small upgrades. We started with hardwood floors in the kitchen and main living areas and we've never regretted it. So naturally, the next thing on my mind was our bathrooms. They came standard with basic linoleum, and I've always wanted to upgrade to tile.
Since a bathroom makeover is always in the back of my mind, I decided to stop into my local Carpet One Floor & Home store while I was out and about (without the kids!) last week. I had never been in a Carpet One before, so I didn't really know what to expect. The showroom was beautiful, and I was sort of surprised to see that they actually have a decent selection of tile.
I found tile I liked right away, and knowing that I always tend to pick the most expensive option, I figured I better get an estimate before presenting yet another expensive decorating project to my poor, unsuspecting husband.
The associates at Carpet One were really knowledgable. When I asked for an estimate, they offered to come out and measure my bathroom the very next day for no charge. They also let me take home a large sample of the tile I liked best.
Diana arrived first thing in the morning and she measured not only the floor in my master bathroom, but the guest bathroom as well. I don't think she expected to get a two and half year old assistant (still in her pajamas), but she was extremely sweet about it, and very accepting of the help. Diana left me with a sample card for grout colors, and by the end of the day, I had my quote via email.
These projects always take time, but upgrading the floors seems like a good start to a master bathroom makeover. Of course, I couldn't resist laying a few of my bathroom accessories out with my favorite tile...just to get an idea of how everything might come together in the end.
And if you know me, then you know a great inspiration board is the way I start every design project!

I'm all for a DIY when it comes to Christmas ornaments and Valentine's Day cards, but when it comes to flooring installation, I'd rather let an expert handle the job.
