Not all floor coverings are created equal, and carpet is definitely proof of that fact. As the only soft surface flooring available, it offers benefits and characteristics that are found nowhere else. From its comforting and inviting warmth, to its amazing aesthetics, this material can make a believer of you as soon as you experience it for yourself. In fact, that's the best way to decide whether this is the right flooring for your own home.

The most important factor concerning your own personal carpet installation is the fiber you will choose. With many fibers to choose from, there is likely to be only one that suits all your needs and preferences best. Finding that one will be essential into creating the floors you have been dreaming of, and then bringing those dreams to reality.
Nylon and polyester are rated very well for use in busy homes that have a lot of activity, especially those with small children. They stand up well to everyday wear and tear, resist dirt and dinginess, and do have some resistance to staining. If stains are an issue, or if you're worried about a stain that might not come out, be sure to ask about brands that offer built-in stain protection.
For those whose homes are not nearly as busy, wool is definitely an option, but must be used with caution. Wool carpet is very easily worn, stained, and can hold up to ten times its own weight in water, so it must be treated with care when installed.
When choosing a color for your carpet floors
, keep in mind that dark colored flooring absorbs light and works to make a room look much smaller than it really is. Lighter colors, then create rooms that are bright and larger-looking, which is a great trick to use in small spaces. To add to that enlarging effect, you can also add molding that is colored lighter than your walls.
