Know some terms

Natural fibers include wool and synthetics like nylon, polyester, olefin, and triexta. All are excellent choices, and it comes down to personal preference. Fibers determine performance, aesthetics, and even the feeling underfoot, so know the pros and cons of each.

There are three major styles: Uncut loops, like the Berber or level loop; cut-pile where the loops are sheared into various lengths; the loop is where the varying heights make up a pattern. Then it gets further broken down into high, low, or medium piles.

Plush is a texture where the fibers are densely packed with a soft, luxurious, and velvety feeling. In addition, plush textures have fibers going in all directions, giving the rugs a reflective quality that can show footprints and vacuum marks.

Consider budget

Not just including the initial product but also padding, adhesives, transition strips, and upkeep.

Of course, your home will have different types of flooring in various rooms, but be sure the colors harmonize each other, so the overall decor looks cohesive.
