Choosing the Right Carpet
How to choose the right carpet for our home? Have you shopped for new carpet lately?
Colors and Patterns
…selecting the right colors and patterns is a very serious consideration; in a heavily trafficked area or where there is plenty of light, a multicolored carpet will help hide inevitable stains and soils.
The wealth of new carpet patterns and styles can be overwhelming, but don’t be daunted – choice is good, says Doug. Next, he says, choose the best installer.
Are they experienced? Do they follow the CRI Installation Standard? Improper carpet installation is the number one problem with new carpets.
Some carpet manufacturers offer an extended, even lifetime performance warranty with their carpet backings; having this warranty can prove worthwhile, especially if the carpet is installed in a busy walkway.
Padding should be thicker in areas that receive considerable foot traffic. Now – some carpets are installed with no pad. Traditional roll carpeting should always be installed over a pad, approximately 1/4- to 1/2 – inch thick and designed to help support the carpet.
When selecting a pad for your carpet, check the carpet manufacturer’s requirements for thickness and density. The right pad forms a good foundation and provides increased insulation, making a room quieter and warmer.
Low-gassing carpets release fewer volatile organic compounds into the air, an attractive feature that is beneficial to the environment and facility users.
And, since most of the carpet manufactured in the U.S. today has been certified to CRI’s Green Label Plus Indoor Air Quality standard. You can be certain of buying a truly low-VOC product – one that exceeds all regulatory requirements for lowering VOC emissions.

The most important thing to remember is that when investing in a new carpet, it’s a good idea to choose the design you really like and the material that fits the room in which it will be placed. Also, make sure you measure the room and space available, and take your existing furniture into consideration. And don’t be expensive for quality, because choosing a nice carpet means that not only will you look at it, but also that you will use it for a long period of time and it should be comfortable for you.
