Just remember this: when selecting carpet, thicker is not always better. What you need to look at is the construction of the carpet.

The more backing you see, the less dense and durable the carpet. And for high traffic areas, consider lower profile carpets that won’t have the potential to matte and crush. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. To start at the beginning, check out our construction story that follows—and happy learning!
