Do you live with it?

Did you choose it?

Do you love it or hate it?

It seems amazingly good value for money, hmm

coir flooring

I have it I love it.

I have it all up my stairs, it is extremely hardwearing (I have 3 of the heaviest footed children in Christendom)

I have it in my bedroom. Its not the sort of flooring you would roll around on naked, but I like its rufty tufty finish.

We bought ours from this place
Ollerton hall and they were cheap and very efficient and recommended great fitters.

Its not good if liquid is left to soak into it..but if you mop up quickly its fine.

I actually have sisal, a small loop one.

I find it uncomfortable on bare/socked feet

maidamess Tue 09-Sep-08 17:58:49

Oh I like that, nice and scratchy. There are some that are more forgiving to a bare foot than others.

I like te look of it, but when we discussed it with a carpet shop, they said they don't put it on stairs as it's too slippy, have you found that maidamess?

I thought it was just seagrass that became slippy on stairs.

Thanks for that link, maidamess. smile

ilove it. my dad had it from when we were kids and i wil have it in my next house , for now i have black coir rugs, which i love.
the tan one has a few stains from the kids but nothing really bad.

Even DH has said he thinks it would be a good idea. We might actually get this house decorated by Christmas!

No its not slippy at all, we have sisal, with quite a tight 'loop' so it doesn't get flattened down like carpet does.

i really can't rate it highly enough, I'm chuffed to bits with ours. I hardly ever hoover it, the bits don't show!

And if you have any largish bits left over when you've had it fitted, get the edges whipped for a few quid and it makes great rugs too.

You hardly ever hoover it. I'm convinced!!!!

I know I might be too late but only just saw this. Please please don't put it on your stairs. We have it (was there when we moved in) and it is incredibly slippery, both me and and DH have had nasty falls down the stairs.

For other rooms it is hardwearing, 'ages' well and looks good, but isn't that 'comfy'. It is good in the hall.
