Rustic Bathrooms worth Loving!

‘Farmhouse Rustic’ is a trend that many believe took the place of the early 2000’s ‘Shabby Chic’ explosion. The idea of Upcycling the old into new is certainly at the heart of the “Farmhouse Rustic’ style. While the “Farmhouse Rustic’ style can aptly be used in every room of your house, Fireplaces and Bathroom seem to highlight the strengths of this decorating trend.

Insidecorate is a great website highlighting the Farmhouse Rustic style! If you are looking for inspiration and have a time on your hands….pop on over to their website.


Short on time? We took our favorite five “Farmhouse Rustic Bathrooms” and featured them below. Enjoy!


Farmhouse Rustic Bathroom #1:

This rustic theme features a galvanized water trough up-cycled into a Bathtub as it’s centerpiece. With a soft and elegant white on white color scheme, the touches of green and browns create a touch of perfection!


Farmhouse Rustic Bathroom #2

True to the roots of the “Farmhouse Rustic’ style: this up-cycled distressed dresser is gorgeous! The hammered brushed nickel sinks add the ‘Wow’ factor that is well worth copying and can we just say the light fixtures are amazing.  What a wonderful example to up-cycling!!


Farmhouse Rustic Bathroom #3

Beautiful rustic subway tile in a classic white and grey look complements the wood grain tile of the floor. The simple white and grey color scheme is indicative of the ‘Rustic Farmhouse’ style and brilliantly featured by this beautiful bathroom!


Farmhouse Rustic Bathroom #4

The contrast between Farmhouse Rustic Bathroom #3 and #4 is exactly why so many people are drawn to this decorating style. This style can be interpreted so many ways. This beautiful bathroom features rustic barn board ceramic on the walls that harmonizes well with the brick pattern on the shower floor. The custom stone bench and glass shower doors are a the perfect blend of function and beauty.

Farmhouse Rustic Bathroom #5

Soft grey shiplap walls are complimented by the natural wood vanity delicately topped with a bright white farmhouse style sink create a bathroom masterpiece. The stencil ceramic tile floor add just the right of pop and creativity to this Farmhouse Rustic bathroom.

If our “Farmhouse Rustic’ Bathrooms have inspired you, stop in our showroom located on Main Street in Morrison, Il!

Before you DIY…..Think of us!


Looking to start a home project this spring? Thinking of maybe doing it yourself?  While channeling your inner JoAnna & Chips Gaines could be fun, it also could cost you a lot more than you expect.

Here are a few tips to think about before you decide to DIY or call a professional!

Tip #1: How much is that Weekend Warrior Project really going to cost you once you figure in the time and labor?

Are you looking at switching out some old faucets or painting a laundry room? Maybe you are looking to update your back splash with some beautiful new glass tile? These are all project perfect for the weekend DIY’er. A few trips to the hardware store, a few hours of hard work yield amazing results!


But if you are looking to install/refinishing a hardwood flooring? Think about all of those extra’s: do you have a power sanders? Do you have a nail gun? Did you remember to add 10-15% overage due to defects in the wood? What about time? A project you promised your wife would only take three days is stretching into day five. Kids are walking all over the new wood, the poor cat doesn’t know what to think of all of the noise and mess…That is why jobs like these go a lot more smoothly when done by professionals. They have already invested in the quality tools needed to get the job done efficiently! They know how to estimate the proper amount needed to get the job done and they will do it as quickly and effectively as possibly!

Tip #2: Is this really something you can do?


“Sometimes there’s overconfidence. Dean Bennett, president of a Colorado-based design and construction firm, has seen many instances in which homeowners thought they knew everything, but fell short. Some things are just not as easy as you might think, he says. Say the idea is moving a wall to create some extra bathroom space. This could involve moving the plumbing in the basement, adding new floor framing, rerouting electrical wires, removing and replacing trim on the wall, matching the wall texture to the original, and painting.”*

A good rule of thumb is if it needs permits or requires inspection by licensed professional…..Don’t do it yourself. It is going to save you a lot of time and money if you simply have it done right the first time!

Tip #3: Are you really going to save much if you DIY?

After obtaining the correct permits, renting or buying the necessary tools…..are you really saving as much money as you thought? Before you DIY, call around and see about some estimates. Chances are you will be surprised at how little your savings would be if you did it yourself and the extra money spent is worth the time, effort and lack of stress!

So if you are looking to some flooring DIY, want to make sure you are saving time and money…..give us a call here at THE CARPET HOUSE, INC! As always we offer free measure’s and no-obligation estimates! Call us today at (815) 772-8846.

Our Holiday wish for you!

Thanksgiving 2012 - Copy

Over the last few years, BLACK FRIDAY has seemed to creep its way into the Thanksgiving Day Celebration. Many have criticized businesses for opening on Thanksgiving day and we here at The Carpet House agree with the critics.

Our policy at The Carpet House, Inc. has always been to close over the Thanksgiving Holiday from Thursday to Sunday allowing our employees quality time with their friends and family! While we greatly appreciate and look forward to helping you in purchasing flooring….we are confident that our customers understand the importance of why we stay closed.


Which is why, on December 5th, our beautiful town of Morrison, IL comes to life in  a very special way to celebrate Christmas.

Friends, Family and Strangers all come together to enjoy sleigh rides, decorated store fronts, visits with santa clause and our Holiday Hometown Parade! (which is always a favorite!)

For the last sixteen years, The Carpet House has hosted an Open House during Morrison’s Christmas Walk. We open our doors offering a yummy variety of homemade goodies and hot cocoa from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm! Holiday Baskets will be given away, good food and fun will be had for all!

So while we may be closed this Thanksgiving weekend, our HOLIDAY wish is that you will take the time to join us December 5th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for our HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE!
