    Hi all,

    My upcoming new bedroom will have a walk in through to the ensuite. The walk is corridor is wider than average. I'm laying boards in the lounge and hallway and carpet in the bedrooms. I was thinking of also laying the boards in the walk in robe. Anyone ever done or thought of this idea? It would make the walk in look a lot more trendy I think.

    I know that my parents walk in robe which has a door gets very dusty in there; esp the carpet in the corners, etc. I just think borads is cleaner and will avoid all the nasty creatures living in the carpet.

    Perhaps I can also keep a sheet of carpet the same as the bedrooms and store away in case I one day want to switch back to carpet.

    What do you all think?

    If the bedroom has carpet, I would also put that in the WIR

    I would match the walk through wardrobe floor to the bedroom.

    To have 3 different floors (presumably the ensuite is tiled) so close together would look very patchy.

    Yeah good point. Will check it out with the installer when I get access in a week or two.

    Ive got floorboards in mine but the whole house has floorboards. Might look strange mixing it with other floor coverings.
