Even luxurious carpet does not have to drain your wallet. Shop around to find a carpet that fits your budget and lifestyle. Ask for pricing on both installation and materials. Make the most of your budget by choosing the best carpet for the room of installation.
Stain-resistant carpet is likely worth the splurge for busy family rooms. More affordable low-traffic carpet is excellent for the guest chambers. Explore different carpet fiber options before you buy to balance comfort and price.
Wool is an excellent choice...it keeps your room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Synthetic carpet fibers such as nylon feel similar and cost less. For stairways and moisture-prone basements, polyester or Olefin are recommended.
