First, know that different kinds of carpet have different styles. Carpeting can be short or long. It also can be luxurious or have fibers close together to give a more simple look. These can be customized to how you want your room to look. You also need to consider how often and how much the room will be used. The more the room is used, the more the carpet should be durable and easy to clean. This is the same consideration you need for your other rooms for the type of carpet you plan to use.

Secondly,once you have your style picked out and know how short or long the fibers should be, you are ready to pick out your color. Now, carpeting comes in an array of colors and can be overwhelming. Some colors can look similar, but each has a specific shade of the same color that is unique. Shades of blue is a good example. There is sea blue, dark blue, midnight blue and sky blue. All of these are different colors.

Next, keep in mind what your specific needs are for the room or the home it will go into. Maybe there is a certain part of the room you want carpeted and not the whole room. Otherwise, you may want to carpet the whole house. Just keep in mind that some places in your home may not benefit from carpeting, such as the bathroom or kitchen; where water can ruin the carpet.

Fourth, consider the price of the carpet. You want something that will perfectly match your needs. You don’t want to buy carpet and figure out it won’t match with the sofa! You also want to be happy with it for a long time.

Finally, the carpet should be something you really want. An average carpet will, with good care and frequent vacuuming, last a few years. This is a long term decision you will have to live with. The carpeting will last you a good while.
