And I thought choosing paint color was hard. Comparatively, it was not. Because paint color is only...well...color. Carpet, however, is a whole different story.
Do I go long and plush?
Short and practical?
Funky and curly?
That new-wave Smart Strand stuff?
What about warranty? Do I really WANT to have a carpet for 20 years?
After ALL that, then there is color, which is still pretty darn critical.
Here were my final contenders.
The one on top won. It is a mid-grade nylon Mowhawk product. Short, fairly plushy, and very speckled.
And I'm so glad that decision is behind me. The carpet should be installed late this week or early next. We will start working on the fireplace rock, then the hardwood flooring.
It is time to start thinking about ordering the household goods.
And moving in.
