We have been in our house 9 years now and added a dog 3 years ago. The carpet was builder grade Berber. We had recently bought a carpet shampooer, but it was still hard to keep clean. Then a Kirby guy came by and he took my old vacuum,shampooer, and gave us a deal we couldn't refuse.

The suction was unbelieveable and it doubled as a shampooer. Everything was great until it sucked up one of the threads of the berber carpet and wound it up in the roller, leaving us with a line across the carpet where it had pulled out the thread.

That gave us the excuse we were looking for to change it to tile.

We previously had tile around the perimiter area where we walked the most, so we added a designer tile to make it look like a rug. The hardest part was finding a match to our old tile, to complete the music room . By luck we found just enough to do it.

This shows the computer/music room with carpet

Worst part of the project was moving everything out of the way.

I have a good looker but not much help. Paris

Everything in the music room out except for the Jukebox. It is real heavy but on steel wheels so I will wait for the installers to help me roll it out into the kitchen.

Notice on the right I was able to leave my router hooked up,so we will have WiFi in the house during the transition
