Rather than learning while you shop, learn a few things before you start shopping so you can save time, know what questions to ask, make informed decisions and avoid making costly mistakes.

 

Remember, choosing the right product for your needs, goals and lifestyle is most important!

What Grade of Carpet Should I Select?

 

The key to selecting the right Carpet for your home is to select a product that is capable of tolerating your own personal Level of Foot Traffic you have in your home. 

 

The color and style should be selected only after you determine the right grade or quality level to meet your needs, goals and lifestyle. 

 

For example, If you want your new carpet to last 20 years or more, then you need to start by choosing a grade of carpet or flooring that is designed to last that long, based on your unique level of foot-traffic. Only then you can consider a style and color in that particular "grade" of material that is pleasing to you. 

 

Take my free Carpet Foot-Traffic Test to get a good idea about your level of foot- traffic in your home, and what grade of carpet you need to purchase to meet your personal needs, goals and lifestyle.

 

If there are no kids or pets in your home, then you probably have a low foot-traffic scenario. You don't need to buy a top of the line Carpet or Flooring product if you only need 10 years of use. 

 

If you want save some serious cash, then consider buying a better grade of carpet or flooring in those areas where it really matters. For example, buy a better grade of carpet or flooring for your master bedroom but use a lower-grade of materials in the kids bedrooms.

 

There are many factors to consider including;

  • Color and Style

  • Durability and Clean-ability

  • Care and Maintenance Requirements

  • Total Cost for Materials and Installation
