Where to Start When Buying a New Carpet

Buying a New CarpetInstalling new carpeting in your home might seem like a simple enough task. You go to a carpet store, pick out what you want, install it in your home, and you’re done. However, before you do carpet installation, there are some things you should keep in mind. Let’s take a closer look at them below.

Carpet Type

People are often blown away by how many different types of carpeting are available out there. From plush carpets that are great for low-traffic parts of your home to Berber carpets that can hide stains on high-traffic areas, there are many types of carpeting. You should consider where you plan to put your new carpets and choose the right type accordingly.


You won’t ever see the padding you put underneath your carpets once it’s installed, but you will feel it. The padding will, as its name suggests, provide cushioning under your carpets and ultimately determine how comfortable carpeting is and how long it lasts. You shouldn’t skimp on padding and purchase something that will wear out sooner than your carpeting.

Carpet Installers

The company you choose to install your carpeting should be experienced and should know how to make your new carpets look great. If you hire someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing, it could shorten the lifespan of your carpets and cause issues with them. Make sure you bring a company on board that knows exactly what they’re doing during installation.

Overall Cost

While cost shouldn’t be your only concern, you should obviously keep it in mind to some degree. You don’t have to blow the bank to put quality carpets into your home. At the same time, you don’t want to get cheap carpeting just to save a few bucks and then regret it later when your carpeting needs to be replaced sooner than you would like.
