1. What Grade of Carpet Should I Buy?

  • You need to determine the level of foot traffic in your home so you know what grade you need to buy. Take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to find out!

 

2. How Much Does Carpet Cost? 

  • You need have a basic idea about how much you could potentially spend on various grades of carpet. Check out my Basic Carpet Cost Guideline to learn more.

 

3. How Long Does Carpet Last?

  • You need to figure out how long you want your carpet to last. This is totally up to you but the longer you want it to last the more it will cost so be realistic. Some carpets are designed to last 3 years, some for 30. The price you pay will be determined by the grade and quality you select. See my chart about current Carpet Prices vs longevity

 

4. How Much Carpet do I Need?

  • Most people don't have a clue how to measure for carpet. It is important that you get an accurate measurement so you don't pay more than you need to. Here is a quick way for you to get a close estimate of the amount of carpet your need:  How to Measure for Carpet yourself.

 

5. Where Should I Buy Carpet?

  • I have spent countless hours searching for reputable carpet dealers to place in my directory. Visit my Preferred Carpet Dealer Directory to see which carpet stores I prefer near you.

 

6. To sum it all up consider all these factors:

  • Your Level of Foot traffic (Light - Medium - Moderate - Heavy)

  • Anticipated Years of Use (5 - 10 -15 - 20)

  • Amount of Carpet Needed (Yards or Square Feet)

  • Current Carpet Prices for Grade of Carpet Required

  • Your Budget for this Project.

 

Take a good hard look at your level of foot traffic to help determine the grade of carpet you need to buy and match it up with the current prices for that grade of carpet and consider the number of years you expect it to last. Basic Carpet Cost Guideline

 

When you take all this information into consideration, then you take a good hard look at the reality of your lifestyle, needs, goals and budget to come up with a good estimate as to what it will cost you to buy the right grade of carpet. 

 

You might need to adjust a few things a little bit to make it all work. Most people are shocked at how much a good quality carpet will cost. This means you might have to sacrifice longevity to keep the carpet within your budget, or you may have to do half of the house now and do the other half after you save a little more money. The absolute worst thing you can do is to buy a carpet that cannot meet your needs and goals.
