When you think about it, the types of flooring that have developed over the years is pretty amazing. I mean, a couple hundred years ago people had dirt floors. Then they started using cobblestones and wood. Eventually someone discovered how to weave and make rugs out of wool and cotton. Then the plastics industry took off and modern carpeting was on a fast track to cover all the homes of the United States.
When I was a kid my parents had a purple shag carpet in their living room. My mom loves the color purple and that carpet was right up her alley. She even painted her bedroom walls a purple color. I personally can’t stand the color purple in a house, but I don’t live there anymore and if she likes it, then she can have all the purple she wants and it won’t bother me.
I have to get some new carpet for my living room. This old brown carpet came with the house and reminds me of the color of baby shit that you find in a diaper. I hate this color and want something pretty. I can promise you it won’t be purple and it won’t be baby shit brown, but I have no idea what color to get.
