Stainmaster vs. SmartStrand
I am looking to replace carpet in two bedrooms and a staircase. I think I've narrowed it down to either a Stainmaster nylon cut/loop pattern or a SmartStrand poly based cut/loop pattern. Both are from Lowe's. I was considering Martha Stewart's line of patterned Nylon from Home Depot as well but the pricing is better at Lowe's and the quality seems higher than the MS.
Does anyone have any experience with either of these carpets or brands? We do have pets and the areas are high traffic. I know wood is preferrable but its just not in the budget for a not-our-forever home.
