Smartstrand too expensive...now what?
I'm so disappointed. I finally decided on Smartstrand Sorona from Carpet Corner, a local store. It's 3.75/sq ft for 40oz (dining room) and $4.53/sq ft for 60oz (family room, sitting room & stairs). This price includes generic 8lb pad + installation.
Well, apparently I miscalculated how much I needed and the final price is outside of my budget.
The 2nd runner up was comparable weight Anso. Does this product run about the same price?
I am usually a really good researcher but I'm a bit deflated right now. And since my dining room is down to subfloor I have to keep moving forward.
The carpet needs to stand up to our life:
2 cats. No urine issues but carpet does need to stand up to hairballs.
A small dribble or two of coffee
We wear our shoes indoors (but this can be changed)
We vacuum about once a week
Do you have any suggestions on a carpet that would be a good fit for us & the budget? Possibly just a level down from Smartstrand? It was a struggle to get DH to agree this time - it won't happen again for another 20yrs.
