When selecting carpet for your living room, the standard questions apply, like What will you use this room for most? How much foot traffic will the carpet endure? If you’re carpeting a living room, not a family room or den, it’s likely that you will reserve this room for more formal occasions, and the foot traffic probably won’t be as heavy as in some other rooms of your home. If that is the case, you can focus your attention primarily on selecting the carpet you wish for this room based on color, style and quality. Sound like fun? It can be if you know what to look for when you start shopping.
