Choosing a rug is a fairly simple process once you understand what it is that you are looking for. Now many people do not stop to think when choosing a rug as they feel that not a lot of thought has to go into it. After all, isn't it about walking into a store, seeing a rug that you like and then taking it home with you? Well technically yes, but there is generally a lot more to it than that.
You can approach your flooring project in a few different ways. A traditional approach is the most common route people choose. Commonly this means hardwood, or a product designed to look like hardwood. This option is generally considered elegant and classic. Hardwood flooring suits those that like antiques and older homes. It is also good if you like your home to look like a "traditional" home. For some homes, linoleum can also be considered traditional because it was popular in the early to mid twentieth century. Finding flooring ideas does not have to be a mind bending experience. The installation process should be the most difficult process. Most people find that so many choices in flooring is quite overwhelming. The trick to finding the flooring that is best for you is to do some research and figure out what is most important to you: price, environmental friendliness, texture, etc. After answering these questions you will find narrowing down the choices much easier. From there you just have to figure out what is going to go on top of your new floors once they are installed!
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.
