3 Things to Consider When Picking Your Perfect Carpet

With so many options, shopping for carpet can be overwhelming. Fortunately, it’s easier than you think to find the perfect carpet for your home. By considering three basic factors, you can narrow down your selection to the best flooring for your needs and budget. As you weigh up your options, consider these three things, and you’ll be certain for find the best carpet for your space.


Like most investments in your home, budget matters. By setting your budget upfront, you can be assured that you get the best value for the money you want to spend, without overspending. Knowing your budget can also help you rule some carpet options out from the start. Set yourself a budget for carpet shopping, and stick to it. You’ll be happier with your purchase and won’t lose time looking at options that don’t work for your price point.


How your carpet will be used a major determining factor. Carpet that is in high-use areas needs to be significantly more durable than carpet in low-traffic spaces. Consider if the carpet will be in an area in which it will get heavy foot traffic and in which kids and pets may be playing on it regularly. You should also consider if people will be transitioning from outdoors right onto the carpet. Generally, carpet in heavy traffic areas should have low, dense piles or level loops and should be stain resistant.


Color is largely a matter of preference, but there are some practicalities to consider. Light colors will show dirt and stains more readily. Some types of carpet will also fade in sunlight, which will be a more pronounced effect on darker colors. Take carpet samples home to see the colors in different lighting, and opt for fade and stain-resistant choices as needed for your space.
