CARPET SELECTION GUIDE

At Lonnie's Carpet Max, we carry a wide range of carpet styles and manufacturers. Which is right for you? Here is a helpful guide to understanding how to choose the right carpet.

Start by asking yourself a few questions:

  • How is the room going to be used?
  • Is there light or heavy traffic in the room?
  • Is the room the center of activity for family or entertaining?
  • Is there direct access from outside?
  • How long will you be living with the carpet?
  • Is it important that the carpet stand up to lounging pets, running children and bustling activity? Or, are you mainly concerned about how it will look and feel in a formal living room that doesn't get a lot of use?

Some carpet styles are designed for active use and make a lot of sense in high traffic areas. Other styles work better in formal rooms that don't have a lot of coming and going. We can help you find a style that meets your needs.

Color

Feel free to bring swatches of fabric from drapes and other room furnishings to our store. That way you can consider a range of colors that will match your existing décor. When picking a color, keep in mind that dark colors tend to make a room appear smaller and cozier and a lighter color tends to make the room seem larger. Color can also affect your mood. Warmer colors often make you more energized while cooler tones provide a sense of calm. (When considering color, remember the lighting in the carpet store is not the same as the lighting conditions in your home.)
