Shelley Ferguson, Editorial Director of Your Home & Garden and HOME magazines and Co-host of The Block NZ, shares how she transformed her Birkenhead home with new flooring from Carpet Court.
My home is an expression of my style and I desperately wanted to change the old and ineffective carpet. Flooring is the foundation of interior design and sets the tone for how the entire house looks as well as making it more efficient, so it was my one and only priority – the rest could wait!
“Flooring is the foundation of interior design and sets the tone for how the entire house looks”
When I saw Carpet Court advertise 21 months no interest and no payments via Q Card I investigated immediately. Following the credit approval process and a consultation I got beautiful hardwood flooring installed throughout the living areas and plush, warm carpet in the bedrooms. Along with new interior paint, the house was totally transformed, which hugely increased how much we have enjoyed the spaces over the last two years.
The key was coming up with my own achievable repayment plan to ensure I could make the most of the interest-free period. With plenty of breathing space to manage repayments, the interest-free period is now up and I’m happy to say I’ve paid off every cent and the flooring still looks as good as new!
With 12 stores across the city from Silverdale to Pukekohe, Carpet Court has Auckland homeowners covered.
