How do I choose carpet?
So what happened? Did you move a piece of furniture and realize that your carpet is actually white, not cappuccino? Did you saunter barefoot down the hall, thinking what a relief it would be to walk on some concrete? Did you move into a pre-owned home that screams "Fido and Boots lived here" right when you walk through the front door?
Either way, one thing is unmistakable-it's time for new carpet. But where do you start and how do you choose the carpeting that's right for you? Although matching the color to your curtains is an important detail, there are several other things to take into consideration.
Do you want nice-looking carpet or durable carpet? How about both?
Yes, you want carpet that looks nice. But to keep it looking nice, you need to first think about durability. Is it going in a high-traffic area, or is it going in that "don't even think about setting foot in there" formal living room? Are you trying to make your den more snuggly or your home office more professional? Depending on its main function, different carpet fibers are intended for different types of wear and tear. Nylon carpets are more wear-resistant and durable to take on herds of kids, while polyester carpets are known for their ability to resist those oops-spots like grape juice (or red wine, the other grape juice). More common in commercial uses, olefin carpets can take a foot-traffic beating and are easily cleaned. But if it's purely yum that you seek, acrylic and wool carpets are like dessert for your feet.
