Replacement carpet can become necessary after your old flooring becomes worn, stained, or outdated. People consider replacing carpeting for many reasons – perhaps they’re looking to update their old decor, improve the value of a house for sale or personalize a new home.

When purchasing replacement carpet, consider how long you’ll live in the home. If you plan on staying there for many years, you can purchase carpet in a color and style that you enjoy. If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, you may be best served by purchasing a neutral carpet that will appeal to a wide variety of tastes.

Also consider the traffic patterns of the room in which you’ll be installing replacement carpet. An area that receives heavy traffic will look best with a durable, low-pile carpet such as Berber or frieze. This will reduce wear and ensure your carpet provides the best return of investment.
