Here is the current state of our boys room. Although I really love the chalkboard wall I’m ready to change it all up. Because that’s what I do… Read all about the chalkboard wall DIY on momtastic.
Future plans are for bunk beds again to clear up some floor space. I think the theme will be explorers. My main design obstacle in the room is space. The room is just a tad too small for two. There’s only one good wall for the beds to be on. I’m slightly tempted to rip out the walk in closet and linen closet to gain more space, but that seems a bit over the top…
The other issue I’m facing is the carpet. I HATE carpet for so many reasons but the #1 reason is it’s so dirty. I don’t care how much you clean or vacuum. It just gets more filthy as time goes on. I’ve ripped up the carpet in a couple of our homes and only then will you know what is really going on with carpet… Ewww. I would love to put wood flooring to match the main level. But it’s pricey and I’m concerned about the noise level. I need to do something though and soon. Accidents have happened in the boys room and I’m reminded each time I walk up the stairs past their room, even though I just had the carpets professionally deep cleaned.
Do you have hardwood upstairs in the bedrooms with kids? Is the noise and echoing a pain? Do you miss carpeting? Would love your thoughts and insights.
