Type 6,6 soft Nylon vs. Shaw Evertouch Dreamin'?
I'm looking for a durable carpet for my newly finished basement. We want something that lasts, can stand the wear and tear and 2 toddlers. We are not necessarily looking for the top of the line stuff. Just something nice, but reasonably priced.
Our local dealer told us about this 6,6 soft Nylon. It's unbranded, Frieze, with specs (multi colors). It has limited choices in color, but we could find a color that we like. The dealer told us this is a better carpet than the Shaw Evertouch. We can have it for about $27 per sq. yard including pads (0.5" 8 lbs), installation (including stairs).
The other one we looked at was the Shaw Evertouch Dreamin'. It comes with 20 colors and it's a plush carpet. He told us, this is good carpet, but a few steps down below the 6, 6 soft Nylon mentioned earlier. We can have this one for close to $21 installed (including 8 lb pads).
So, now we are torn about what to get. The 6, 6 soft Nylon sounds good, but we know so little about carpet, and not sure if it's worth the extra. Also we couldn't find a lot of information on this one because it's unbranded.
Would like to hear what you experts think... Should we go with the Shaw Evertouch Dreamin'? Is this a good carpet for our use? Or should we pay the extra for this unbranded 6, 6 soft nylon in Frieze, multicolor?
Many thanks to yu!
