  • Will the room be the center of activity for family and entertaining?
  • Is there direct access from outside, or will the carpet be away from entrances?
  • Will the carpet receive direct sunlight?

Your answers will determine many of your choices, from color to carpet construction and more. If you still have questions, our design experts are here to help give you expert guidance.
