We Can't Close Our ...
I love the new rug we had installed in the family room yesterday So pretty (sapphire blue with a subtle two tone deep blue - much prettier than a navy. It's called Deep Cosmos. Our previous rug had been sapphire and eventually faded to navy, thanks to the sun shining in through the 6 foot sliding glass doors. This new one is rich in color. I do think of sapphires when I look at it. :) And the padding is so thick too. I am a very happy SeaSpray every time I look at this rug.
And so is our dog, Faith. I noticed last night that she was opting to sprawl out on the new rug instead of the sofa. (That works for me. :) Even Mr SeaSpray commented that he thinks she thinks the rug is her new bed. I thought our previous carpet had good padding, but I feel like I need hiking boots to step onto this rug now. ;)
And we also had the same rug put down in the hallway. I love it there too.
The installers were very nice and I would recommend them ...unless ...you are fussy about closing your bedroom doors.
Yes ..great carpet ...but we can't close our bedroom doors.
And I mean hardly close said doors. I thought maybe I just had to force it, but quickly gave up that idea as I was pretty sure the door hinges would break off.
They didn't put that carpet edger down or whatever that is called ...stating that it looks nicer with out. I agreed because I liked the contrast of the rug against the hardwood floors in the bedrooms, but it never occurred to me to see if the doors closed after the carpet was installed.
It apparently didn't occur to the installers either.
So ... I called the store and the owner said we could shave the doors. But ...I don't want to shave the doors because if we ever decided to go back to hardwood there, then the doors would be too short.
So one of the guys will be back by the end of the week. *sigh*
I'll just say, that you don't realize how much you like your bedroom door closed ...until ...you can't close your bedroom door.
