How to Find the Perfect Carpet

Purchasing a carpet is a huge decision. After all, you want it to be 100% your style, because your floor is often the inspiration for your entire room.

When looking for a carpet there are so many options, each offering something different. So how do you make sure you bring home the right one? When shopping you want to consider style, color, and maintenance.

UntitledStyle: While you obviously want to match your carpet to your personality, it is even more important to match it to your lifestyle. Foot traffic, for example, is an important factor when choosing a style. Plush styles tend to show footprints and vacuum tracks, meaning they’re best suited for low traffic areas. If your room is busier, you may want to consider Berber or high textured carpets.

Color: With so many colors to choose from this may be the most difficult decision. But, you can narrow the selection down by choosing shades that match the overall mood of your room. For example, light colors can make a room feel larger while warm colors can make a room feel cozier.


Maintenance: Carpets are easier to clean than ever due to stain resistance, but maintenance is still an important factor in your purchase. The types of material and carpet style have a major impact on upkeep. High-density loop carpets are good low-key options while others require special cleaning equipment. Always ask a sales representative about maintenance requirements before committing to a carpet.

After considering these factors, finding the carpet of your dreams will be a lot easier. Not only will you be happy with the look of your carpet, but you will also quickly realize the advantages of carpeting, including sound absorption and soil resistance.
