First Carpet purchase for apartment


Hey folks,

Yes, I am buying carpet for a 2 bedroom apt. with no kids and very little traffic. I plan to be there about 5 years before I either sell the place or change the flooring. What type do you recommend? Padding? Remnants? Thanks.

Tight knit/weave, berber with multicolor pattern, commercial carpet is usually better but also more expensive.

When I put an extra bedroom in the old house's attic, I had very little money, so I got 2 different colored 'bolt-ends' from a local carpet supply and cut out 2' squares, then put them down in a checkerboard pattern.
