Currently, we are doing some bedroom switches and have been dedication our time to creating a space for Aiden, my step-son, to have all to himself. Jacob and I have been working hard the past few months to give him a space he can relax in and that will grow with him. We are about halfway there, but need to consider our flooring options and want a product that will last him through his adolescence. Our goal is to create a space that can grow with him in all the stages of his life, carpet included. When redesigning a room, I always recommend starting with an inspiration board and thought I’d share mine for Aiden’s. Going with an industrial western feel, we felt it would be the easiest way to get him through childhood to teenage years and up through early adulthood without being overly childish or overly mature for him.

The room was previously Evelyn’s and we’ve been at work painting, assembling a new bunk bed and putting together what we have on hand to create his space and make it uniquely his.

This week, while researching some flooring options here in the High Desert, I had the privilege of meeting Bill, the owner of my local Carpet One store. Bill is just about the sweetest kind of person one could meet. Passionate about his company, the services he offers, and his employees, I genuinely felt blessed to be able to meet him, interview him, and get to know more about what his Carpet One location offered. Bill, originally from Arizona, told me he ended up here in Hesperia back in 1962 after his car broke down. With no money to fix it, he found a job (at the cement plant my husband works at now!) and between his graveyard shifts, started up his company. Fifty three years later, Bill is a successful business owner with a booming flooring company here in the High Desert that offers affordable pricing, quality products, and even installation from a crew he employs himself.

After touring his store (via golf cart!) and talking with him about how he installs and prices out his carpet, I couldn’t wait for my free in-home measurement. When Jacob and I moved into our home a few years back, we tried to DIY the flooring in our kitchen and baths. While motivated and meticulous, we lacked the experience necessary when installing our peel and stick vinyl. Three years later, our vinyl is lifting and bubbling up in some areas. I strongly believe that flooring is most definitely a DDIY (don’t do it yourself) project (check out these hilarious DDIY videos), which is why meeting Bill and checking out his store was especially exciting for me. It was refreshing to walk into a business where the owner happily shares an office space with his employees, displays passion for customer service, and clearly takes pride in what he does. The pricing was phenomenal and Bill, rather than pricing per foot, prices carpet by the piece, making it a simple process for you to understand once your measurements have been taken.
