If it is time to buy new carpet for your home you have much to think about. If you are about to make this important decision, read this article and learn some things that you should think about.

The first thing you need to think about is the material that you want. You have a lot to choose from. You can choose Olefin, Polyester, Nylon or Wool. There are some other materials but this covers the vast majority. The deciding factor in this decision is probably going to be your budget and the use of the carpet. If you are low on funds or want a carpet that will be going in a rental unit or just need a carpet to last a couple years then Olefin or Polyester is probably your best bet. It is not as durable as the others but is very affordable. If you want a carpet that will last you should go with a Nylon or even a Wool but be prepared to pay, especially for wool.

The next thing to consider is the color. Dark colors will stand up to soiling better for a number of reasons but will make your rooms seem small and dark. Lighter colors will show spots easier but will make your rooms look big and bright. Bright colors like red and bright blue will liven up a room but you might grow tired of them and they could make your home harder to sell in the future. This decision obviously also resolves around how long you will need the carpet so think carefully.

The final decision that I will discuss is the type of carpet. You can get a cut pile carpet, a frieze or even a Berber. The list of styles goes on and on. If you want durability and a formal look go for a Berber. if you want comfort go for a cut pile or a frieze. There are a number of other styles to fit all types of homes and lifestyles so choose carefully.

Although there are other things to think about, these are the major decisions that need to be made when selecting a carpet. Just be sure to find a good carpet retailer who will walk you through the purchase and you will end up with a great carpet. Good luck with whichever carpet you decide on.
