Last week we replaced the carpet in the master bedroom with travertine floor. It looks beautiful!
I insisted on under-floor heating and while Kay resisted, like she did when I said we needed it for the master bathroom, she came around to the idea and now we’d never want to be without it. It is a completely different feeling when walking on warm stones than cold ones. It is particularly remarkable in the morning when the air is still cold.
With the master bedroom completed we now have travertine floor throughout the house. The only two rooms still having carpets are bedroom 3 and 4. Who knows, maybe those will get replaced as well.
In addition to the elegant looks of the travertine floor it also makes it really easy to keep clean. Whether wiping the floor or running the vacuum cleaner, it goes twice as quickly and leaves a much better result; something we know anyone suffering from allergies will appreciate.
