5 Things You Should Know Before Buying New Carpet

Well it’s official...your current carpet just has to go. It’s been there for quite a while - in your opinion, far too long. So, what comes next? You check online for recommendations and are quickly overwhelmed by the amount of information there is on buying carpet. Don’t worry, we are here to guide you through the process. 

  1. Measure your room(s)

The first thing that you need to decide on is what room(s) you want to carpet and their dimensions. This is pretty simple, just like measuring a window, you just need to multiple your room width and length together.


  1. Determine your budget 

Some retailers determine pricing by the features (example, carpets with stain proofing cost extra).  Others charge a price for the materials, and an extra for the installation.  Even things like moving furniture, extended warranties and disposal can be extra charges.  Make sure you find out all costs up front so you don't fall in love with a style that is going to break your budget.   

     3.   Decide on a color

Think of carpet as the “canvas” which all your other furniture and accessories are placed on. Popular styles today have neutral bases, that will look great with a wide variety of colors and décor.

       4.  Find the right retailer

This is a really important step. Even the best carpet, if improperly installed, will not look its best, nor last for years to come. Look for a retailer that has experience – one that has installed for years and does many projects throughout the year.

       5.  Ensure you’re getting at least a 20-year stain and wear warranty.

Although you will likely change your carpet again fewer than 20 years, a warranty of this length or greater speaks to the quality of the product and the integrity of the company.
