My carpet is stained from kids and high traffic. Can anyone suggest a carpet and color that can withstand kids and high traffic?

  • dark blue, green or browns are good and don't show the stains

  • You probably need a commercial quality carpet as most carpets made for domestic use won't stand up to it , despite what the sales staff may say. i suggest you try a retailer who also stocks carpet for commercial use and get some advice.

    Altermatively you could go with a vinyl tiled floor and washable area rugs.

  • A floating wood laminate floor might be a good alternative if you can't find a carpet that you like in the quality that you need. The laminates are pretty affordable and may give you more return on your $$ when / if you go to sell it.
