There are rugs that

can be installed wall to wall and rugs that can

be cut to size with bound edges and carpet squares.

Your first consideration when buying a new carpet

it shouldn’t be color, even if it’s important.

Your first consideration should be the amount of traffic

you will have on the carpet. If you plan

put the carpet in the bedroom, then it will no longer have

a lot of traffic like a carpet in the living room.

Stain resistance will also be important. This is

something to think about with any carpet, above all

carpet that will be used in a dining room

or play area where there will be a stready

food flow or the possibility of spillage.

You will also need to ask about the evaluation of

carpet as well. Interior carpet is normally classified

on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest

rating. Carpets with a score of 5 are considered

ideal for heavy traffic areas. Rating of 4 are

considered exceptional and recommended for heavy

traffic areas of your home.

Ratings of 2.5 to 4 would provide a normal duration

for your home. Rugs that rate 2.5 or less

should only be used with light traffic areas, such as

like bedrooms. The choice of carpet according to the type of

the traffic it will receive can help you save a lot

of money along the way, even if you should buy

carpet suitable for your needs and requests.

The highest quality carpet you can buy is carpet

made of wool. Wool rugs are very expensive,

even if you reap the rewards in years of

use as wool will easily outdo any man

carpet made. Two of the best advantages of wool

carpet include its natural resistance to the ground and

is the ability to maintain the appearance, which means

it won’t squash or fray like other rugs.

The disadvantage of the wool carpet is the fact that

it’s out of reach for most of us. If you can not

afford to have woold carpet installed throughout

your whole house, then you should have instead

installed in the room receiving the highest

amount of traffic.

There are many different man-made carpets that

you can also choose. If you have a high

traffic area, so nylon would be an ideal choice

due to the duration. Nylon is stain resistant

and repels mold.

Olefin rugs are also a great choice

high traffic areas as it is very loud and easy

to clean. Polyester is another good carpet like

it is easy to clean and repels water-based stains.

Polyester is known for the look and feel of wool,

although it is much less expensive.

Consideration of color is also important. Light

colored rugs create a bigger effect

space, although they tend to show more stains

easily. Dark carpets on the other hand tend to do this

absorb light, giving a room what many know

the “cozy feeling”.

When you find a rug you like, you

should ask to take a piece home. Look at

during natural daylight and at night below

an artificial light to see if the color changes

at all.
