If you have decided to replace the carpet in your home, the options, styles, and colors can be overwhelming. Our team over at The Floor Store has broken out a few things you should consider when shopping for a new carpet for your home!

The most important thing to consider is what carpet will work best for your lifestyle? If you have a large family or pets, you will want to consider carpet with stain resistance and a higher lifespan for heavy traffic. Colors are also important because some, more than others, can hide pet hair and dirt if higher traffic areas.

Although it can be an additional cost for an underpad, it is essential to choose to have an underpad not only for comfort but for the longevity of your carpet and investment! Underpads can help with wear and tear, especially in high-traffic areas. If you are planning on a less expensive carpet, be sure to choose a high-quality pad. You’ll thank us later!

What is face weight, anyway? The face weight is most helpful when you are comparing two similar items. The higher face weight typically means higher quality, but this isn’t always the case! Carpet tends to have many other factors that come into play when determining if something is of higher quality or not. Fiber, density, and how the fiber loops are treated are a few.
