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!
Wall to wall carpet can be installed over any other flooring. You have so many choices to choose from in carpeting texture, softness and color. Stain resistant carpet is a great idea for families with small children just learning to walk. If you hate stepping onto a cold hard floor in the morning carpet is perfect for you.
