Rebecca styles a pet friendly bedroom

Posted on the 21/07/2021 by Karndean Designflooring

This month we are delighted to welcome our latest guest blogger Rebecca McCaughan to talk about her Karndean bedroom transformation. 

Rebecca lives in a self-build family home on the spectacular north coast of Northern Ireland and shares the story of her new home and family life on Instagram @selfbuildnorthcoast.

“Hi, I’m Rebecca and I live with my partner Jason and son Eli and pug Bailey in our bespoke 4 bedroom home on the north coast of Northern Ireland.

When we built our new home in 2020 we originally opted for a plush light grey carpet in the master bedroom. Unfortunately our small dog, who sleeps in the bedroom with us, had a few accidents and no matter how much it was cleaned I always felt the smell lingered.  I wanted to replace the carpet with something which would be waterproof and pet friendly but also stylish.

My interior style is traditional with a modern twist so I naturally turned to Karndean flooring. I love the classic look of wood panelling and traditional style floors like parquet but I also love to include some modern factors in my furniture and styling. My favourite colour palette is a relaxing mix of greys, nudes and taupe.  

When it came to choosing which style of flooring would suit our bedroom I had a good idea in mind of what I wanted. I knew for certain I wanted a wood effect in a herringbone pattern. Colour wise I wanted something to tie in with the grey colour scheme of the room but something which would also add warmth. The ashy grey tones and textured finish of Storm Oak from the Art Select range was perfect and comes in a choice of parquet and full sized planks.

The transformation has totally changed our master bedroom. The process was very simple. We ripped up our old carpet and had a levelling screed laid. Then a day later our Karndean floor was fitted. I couldn’t believe the difference it made to the room. 

The new floor works perfectly with our family lifestyle. With a small house dog and toddler I couldn’t ask for better. The floor is comfortable and warm to walk on and any spills or accidents are super easy to wipe up. As the flooring is waterproof and there’s nowhere for germs to hide, smells don’t linger so our home is always smelling clean and fresh!”
