Are the storage access doors custom ordered, made from? plywood, cut down from slab doors? - I made an access opening in a bedroom into a new attic and have been struggling with the door.... tired of the piece of blue insulation held in place by a 2x4. :-) Also, I am trying to do some knee wall storage in a 'bonus' room. Trying to decide if I just want to make an access door into 'attic' space or actually make finished open storage. thank you,

Dayoris Custom Woodwork
I think we have the perfect solution for this particular project. DAYORIS specializes in creating everything custom even doors. On recommendation that we can offer is to make this attic doors flush with the walls, making it invisible from guest. This will help you hide the doors making it blend with the overall design, so take a look at what's possible at

Here's what the World Floor Covering Association recommends:

Here are some tips to give you the upper hand on what will soon be underfoot!


Unless your room is narrower than 15 feet, you’re going to have seams. Most carpet comes in widths of 12 feet and 15 feet — and on occasion, 13 feet. The degree of visibility of your seams depends on the texture and color you choose, as well as the lighting and furniture placement in your room.


When you carpet your stairs, its backing may show on the bends. And if it’s a looped carpet, it can snag — especially at the seams or transitions. Check our Carpet Care section for information on how to properly care for looped carpet.


A carpet’s nap runs in a single direction, making pile reversal or the shading you see from a vacuum trail, completely normal for most cut pile styles. If you’re not a fan, window treatments and furniture placement can minimize the effect.


You get what you pay for. If you want your carpet to have a great pile density and tighter twist construction (which leads to improved durability), then you’re going to want to go with a higher quality (and more expensive) product. New carpet adds value to any home, so it’s an investment worth making.


Carpet covers a large part of any room, so it’s vital that you consider some basic rules when selecting its color. First off, know that once your carpet is installed, it’s going to look lighter in color than the sample you saw in the store. Don’t ask us why, that’s just the way it is — kinda like losing a sock in the dryer.

Next, recognize that color can affect the apparent size of a room. Call it a visual illusion or a trick of the light, but lighter carpet makes a room look larger and darker colors make a room look smaller and more intimate.

If you like to redecorate often or plan to move soon, go neutral. It’s much easier t

I need to redecorate an attic bedroom that has very little natural light and have inherited a carpet very similar to his image. I would be interested to know the shades/colors used as these seem to work well, and also any other tips or bringing the scheme together. The existing furniture is contemporary, warm oak.

Thanks for your reply! I have eventually chosen a feature wallpaper that is deep chocolate with olive and muted orange highlights of stems and stylised leaves- oriental blossom kind of look. I loved it because the warm orange really comes alive againts the furniture and all of the pale shades I tried looked kind of lost! It is for adult master bedroom and am hoping it will create an intimate, cocooned kind of feel. Will try and take some photos to share the finished room!
