There are several factors to consider when selecting a carpet for your living room or family room.
One of the most important qualities for choosing a carpet is the type of fiber. How often do you use the room and for what purpose(s)? Your answers will help determine how durable the fiber needs to be.
It is also important to consider if there are pets and children in the household and whether any food or beverage is allowed in the room.
Once the fiber has been determined, the next important factor is deciding what the overall style you want to achieve. Is it casual, formal, modern or traditional?
Color is the final element to consider. The color of the carpet needs to complement all aspects of the room, including paint color, furniture and any fabrics used in the room.
