Shelley Ferguson reveals the secret to her new affordable flooring

Seeking a new look this year but short on funds? Getting your dream flooring now and paying later could be an option thanks to Carpet Court’s flexible finance plans with Q Card and Q Mastercard®*

My husband and I bought a new house two years ago so our family could enjoy more space as our two boys got older and bigger. Upgrading to a more expensive property meant all our money was tied up in the mortgage with nothing spare for the interior update the 1960s house needed.

My home is an expression of my style and I desperately wanted to change the old and ineffective carpet. Flooring is the foundation of interior design and sets the tone for how the entire house looks as well as making it more efficient, so it was my one and only priority – the rest could wait!

When I saw Carpet Court advertise 21 months no interest and no payments via Q Card I investigated immediately. Following the credit approval process and a consultation I got beautiful hardwood flooring installed throughout the living areas and plush, warm carpet in the bedrooms. Along with new interior paint, the house was totally transformed, which hugely increased how much we have enjoyed the spaces over the last two years.

The key was coming up with my own achievable repayment plan to ensure I could make the most of the interest-free period. With plenty of breathing space to manage repayments, the interest free period is now up and I’m happy to say I’ve paid off every cent and the flooring still looks as good as new!
