It's Carpets! It's Madness! It's Carpet Madness!...

So I went to Allied Carpets yesterday and their initial quote (full quote due from the pending measure up) for what was actually a cheaper carpet than John Lewis was still sky high. £4650! So I'm obviously way out of touch with the costs of carpets these days. And what puts the John Lewis costs into an even better light is this; I was coming out of Allied Carpets when I bumped into my neighbour. She said that she did a lot of research for their own recent recarpeting job and the cheapest they found was just over £6000. So it actually sounds like my John Lewis quote actually might be a good deal! My flabber had never been so gasted.

    Tell me about it - just had my bedroom carpeted - £600! and that was with a cheap underlay! Sorry, I know this is boring but I was completely shocked - I was thinking half that!

  2. I think you can purchase the carpets in the half price. Carpets are available in the less price at the online store. Buy Oriental Weavers Rugs USA at the optimal price.
