Carpet Prices - How NOT to overspend on carpeting

This is the second installment of 12 Things to Know About Buying Carpet which can also be downloaded as a free eBook.

As a counterpoint to our first Ebook tip, you should also be careful not to underspend on carpet.

Your flooring choices should reflect the quality of your home. Would you stick a ratty old sofa from Goodwill in a million dollar mansion? Probably not. By the same token, you shouldn’t install rental-quality carpet in an upscale house. It doesn’t fit the bill.

Furthermore, your carpet is one of the most noticeable features in your house. By square footage, it’s covering more area than any other textiles (like curtains, drapes, bed covers, etc.)

Why is it false economy to spend too little on carpet? The old adage “you get what you pay for” is true for carpet prices. In your shopping trips, you’ll find that prices do vary significantly from the low end to the high end.

It’s not just smoke and mirrors. There is a reason for the price difference and the reason is….


If you have pets, children, or high traffic areas, you’ll be better served with a quality carpet that’s designed to last for years. There are a variety of treatments and features that will make carpets stain and wear-resistant.

This means you won’t have to replace your carpet soon – which saves you money on the product itself as well as the installation charges.
