  • If you get a speckled carpet, you can go with a tan and it will have various color flecks throughout the fibers. This is very good at helping hide soils and spills. Of course, you should still try to maintain the carpet as recommended by the manufacturers...ultimately, that's what's going to make the biggest difference in how the carpet looks and performs.


    Here's an example of speckled carpet, in case you aren't sure what it is:

  • If you have to have carpet I'd say go with the speckled, but personally I like wood or linoleum with kids.
