Many people have no idea what to look for when buying a carpet. Most have no idea who sells carpets. The carpet industry is just like the automotive industry. There are good and bad dealers and the onus is on you to find the right place for your carpet. When the carpet is being sold at "dollars per square foot" this can quickly add up , not to mention the other costs that come with installation.

Before you buy a carpet, go online and read about the topic. Talk to people, get referrals. There are many good carpet dealers but there are also many unscrupulous dealers. Buying carpets from wholesale dealers is not always a god idea. These people make their advertisements more glamorous than the actual carpet.

Once you have decided on a carpet retailer the next step is to know what type of carpet you want. For the dining and living room, thick plush carpets are very popular. Carpets come in many fabrics like nylon, olefin, polyester and wool. Once you buy a carpet, you need to buy some padding. The padding can be foam, rebond, fiberpads or hair.

The costs of carpets is variable on the style, fabric and quality. On average, most start at about $2-$4 per square foot and can go as high as $20 per square foot.

To save money, many consumers hire friends, colleagues or other amateurs to help install the carpet. While this is cheaper it is almost never without a hassle. Talk to the people where you buy the carpet and get a professional. The professional will be slightly more expensive but the satisfaction is almost always guaranteed.
