Choosing the Right Carpet

When you decide on the type of carpet that will be the best fit for your home, there are several factors that you’ll want to consider. Let’s take a look at some of the things to keep in mind when you choose the right carpet for your home:

Foot Traffic

One of the most important things to keep in mind when choosing new carpet is how much traffic that the room or rooms will get. The amount of traffic the room gets will affect the durability and how long the carpeting will last. For high traffic areas, such as hallways, stairs, or commercial areas, consider berber carpet since it is the most durable. It is also easy to maintain and does not mat the way other piles do. You’ll also want to consider the carpet fiber that you choose. Nylon tends to be the best for stain resistance and easy maintenance.

Kids And Pets

If you have kids or pets, you’ll want a carpet that can withstand spills and stains. Pet accidents can leave nasty stains or smells in your carpet and are hard to get rid of. Likewise, kids are likely to spill food and drinks on top of the potential for potty training accidents and sickness. Much of the same carpeting that is ideal for foot traffic is perfect for in homes with children or pets. However, it is a thin line between choosing a comfortable flooring and one that can handle even the heaviest of messes. Synthetic fibers are ideal, since they don’t stain as easily, and you can choose a softer pile, like saxony and cut pile.


There are many carpet options out there, no matter what your budget is. For a small budget, you might want to consider polyester fiber. It tends to be cheaper than nylon and still very durable. It also comes in beautiful, vibrant colors. Another option is olefin or polypropylene. This tends to be the least expensive option. It is not as durable as other options but can work well in low traffic areas. Another option that you have on a small budget is to take a look at in-stock carpet rolls. Carpet Depot carries a huge selection of in-stock carpet, where you can save even more money on a heavily discounted carpet.


There are many other factors to take into consideration, but these are some of the most important ones to keep in mind when choosing the carpet that is right for you. When you shop at Carpet Depot, we can help you make an informed decision to make sure you find a carpet that you love.
