Whenever people start remodeling, they want to replace their flooring. Today it is important to consider not only style and cost, but also whether or not what you are doing is safe for you in the home and also if it is damaging ecologically.
If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
Choosing a rug takes a lot of thought mainly because you need to get the color scheme right so that it fits in with the rest of the room. You need to think about the color of the walls, the color of the flooring and the color of your furniture. If you choose the wrong rug it could clash and the whole room would look off balance. So, think about the color scheme before you purchase anything!
