When shopping, think function first. As yourself a few questions:

What is this room used for?

How much traffic does it get?

Does the room receive a lot of sunlight?

Does the light change during the day?

Is it next to indoor or outdoor spaces?

How often am I likely to vacuum it?

Answers to these questions will help you begin to determine the best fiber for your carpet as well as texture, construction, and even color.
