Secret Money Saving Tips When Buying Carpet!

Shopping for the Right carpet is not an easy task. There are many factors to consider. In fact, it is very common for consumers to select the WRONG carpet and to spend WAY more than is really necessary. Consumers planning to buy carpet for their home should take the time to learn about the various types of carpet and padding and educate themselves about the basic CARPET BUYING PROCESS prior to beginning their carpet-shopping quest.

When you’re choosing a carpet, think about where it’s going to go, what function it will fulfill and how hard wearing it needs to be. Both practical and decorative, carpets are great for keeping draughts and noise to a minimum. Some carpets require frequent cleanings and this is not always possible in a busy schedule.  

Never measure your carpet needs yourself unless you are a professional. I suggest having an experienced carpet installer measure for you. There may be a small fee for the service but many will waive the fee if you hire them to do the installation. Many consumers place their trust in inexperienced salespeople and often end up being charged for more materials than was necessary.

When you look at a Costco price tag, if you know what the end numbers mean, you can save incredible amounts of money. If a price ends it is most likely a regularly-priced item that has yet to be marked down. When the price ends it has been marked down, but Costco doesn’t slash the previous price on the same tag so you know it’s marked down. Prices that end in are usually Manager Specials, which means that it could be returned, but sellable merchandise (think of a damaged box, but the product is intact and perfectly usable inside)

Installing the wrong padding can cause your carpet to wear out or develop wrinkles prematurely. Often, consumers who hope to obtain a cushy feel will confuse padding thickness with padding density. Thickness and density are two different aspects of padding. For longevity, you want a dense padding, not a thick padding. Rebond padding is a good choice for homeowners and is the most common padding used today. It is made from recycled materials and is reasonably priced. With plush styles of carpet.

Colors and Patterns Just like anything else, changing the color or shade can really alternate the mood. How you feel around bright red is completely different then when you are around ocean blue. Your floor touches every wall so it’s very impactual to your room. Light colors make the room look bigger, while darker colors close the room up and shrink it. Also certain colors fade easier in sunlight, so if you have lots of windows in one room you may consider different colors.
