budget and your needs are two key elements in selecting
carpet and rugs. There is a wide range of choices and
costs from which to make your selection. Ask yourself
how long you expect to keep your carpet before replacing
it. A better grade of carpet will give you a greater
length of service than one of lesser quality. Buy the
best carpet you can afford for the heavy traffic areas
of your home - halls, stairs, family rooms. A medium
grade will provide good service in rooms with less traffic
- bedrooms and guest rooms.
Ask your retailer to
give you a complete cost estimate - one that includes
cushion, installation, moving of furniture, and any special
needs that you may have. Keep in mind that a high-quality,
professional installation can extend the life of your
selection of carpet color is a very personal choice.
You will want to select a color that unites your decorative
elements and creates the atmosphere you desire. Lighter
colors make the room seem larger ; darker colors provide
coziness. There are also practical considerations in
color selection. New stain and soil resistant technology
makes today's lighter color carpet much easier to clean,
allowing more decorating options. Medium and darker colors,
tweeds, and textures will help disguise common soil in
your home's high traffic areas.
