I don’t know anyone who has a wall to wall carpet in their house in France. People might have a big rug in the sitting room, but that is all. We had to fit a new bathroom as soon as we moved into our French house as the previous owners were in the process of changing it when they needed to move. To cover the old flooring quickly and cheaply, we bought carpet tiles. This has drawn remarks from our French friends. It is just not done in France; but we prefer warmth under our feet when we have to get up during the night! You know what I mean?
