To at least keep the entryway clean for now, while I talked Mr. Right into cutting out this section of carpet and replacing it with some laminate. We actually found two boxes of brand new laminate at the Habitat for Humanity for $12 each. The expensive part was the trim between the laminate and the carpet. It ended up close to $20 each and we needed three pieces, one for each side. If there was some way to do the transition trim cheaper, I would be all over that!
It makes me so happy that my students can come in the front door, take their shoes off, and not destroy my carpets! I love, too that we have a clear spot for entering the house! What do you think? Not the cheapest project, but it does save us in replacement of the entire carpet in the living room, because there was no way we would get it clean.
