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.

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!

Although our kitchen is almost finished (finally!), I’m going to take you step by step in separate posts from beginning to end. Since we did it all ourselves (although we did call in a professional to install the granite countertops) it took a little longer to complete but we love how it turned out.
Our home was a foreclosure so before the bank took it over the previous owners decided to rip out almost the entire kitchen and take all the appliances except the broken fridge (which we got fixed). We knew this would be a big project, but how often do you get to design your own kitchen from scratch?!

Corner of kitchen where cabinets never existed
A few weeks after closing we went to Home Depot and met with an awesome designer (who designs your kitchen for you free of charge by the way), chose are cabinetry (American Woodmark Gettysburg White) and made our appointment for them to measure. About two weeks after measurement we went back to HD to see our design. After some tweaking and input from my husband and I, here is what we came up with:
