Style In­sider and Car­pet Court am­bas­sador Leonie Bar­low shares how a mod­ern home ren­o­va­tion all comes down to floor­ing.

I’VE ONLY EVER USED CAR­PET COURT FOR MY FLOOR­ING BE­CAUSE ITS PROD­UCTS RE­ALLY STAND THE TEST OF TIME.

Leonie Bar­low, who runs the pop­u­lar The Style In­sider blog, re­cently un­der­took a mod­ern and (nat­u­rally) stylish ren­o­va­tion of her Auck­land home.

Trans­form­ing her din­ing room into a much-needed sec­ond lounge, Bar­low chose Quick­step Ma­jes­tic lam­i­nate floor­ing in Val­ley Oak Light Beige from Car­pet Court. “I love this floor­ing be­cause the planks are ex­tra-long and -wide and the colour light­ens the room as well as mak­ing it look big­ger,” she says.

Bar­low chose to work with Car­pet Court as a long-time cus­tomer. “I’ve only ever used Car­pet Court for my floor­ing be­cause its prod­ucts re­ally stand the test of time and its in­stal­la­tion teams are top notch, too.” Here’s how to steal her style.
