We’re planning on replacing the carpet in our master bedroom, the guest room and the foyer stairway in the near future and need help deciding on the type of carpet to get.  Of the many types of carpet we saw in Home Depot, there are a few that we liked: texture, twist and loop. 

carpet1 by you.  carpet4 by you.  carpet3 by you.
             texture                                 twist                                 loop

Right now in those areas of the house we have the texture carpet (that was there when we moved in).  Out of the three types of carpet mentioned above I think loop is our least favorite only because it didn’t feel as comfy as the other two.

Color is another issue.  Do we go light (which looks the best) or keep it in the darker tan family to hide stains, etc. (especially on the stairway in the foyer)?

So, what do you think?  What type of carpet do you have?  Would you keep the same style of carpet throughout your home or is it okay to mix?  Have you used Home Depot for carpet installation?  Let us know!
