When planning to capet a home, the home owner, should make a rough diagram of all of the rooms that they want carpeted to determine approximately how much carpet is needed. Once they have that in place, they need to shop around and find what they want in the way of color, pattens and texture.  Once determined, the next step is to check prices and choose the retailer that they want to purchase their carpet from. The retailer should go to the home and get a idea as to what the home owner wants done and make their own diagram. The retailer is going to be able to determine where the traffic areas are and what the natural lightening is like. After the retailer has determined this, they can recommend what is the best carpet is for the homeowner. The homeowner can then determine what their Carpet Costs are going to be.
