How much to put new carpet in my house?

    Has anyone bought new carpet recently? I have a 2,000 square foot house (of course, the kitchen, bathrooms and foyer are tile) and want to know what it would cost to re-carpet the house with some middle-of-the-line carpet (I'll be selling in a couple of years). Of course, I could get an estimate, but I thought I'd start here.

    We put 2,000 sf of carpet in our house last summer. Bill was $5,000.

    You can get less expensive carpet than we did, though.

  4. $5-7,000, depending on what middle-of-the-road you get ...

    just make sure the carpet matches the drapes.

    And make sure you rid the house of munchers.

    Ours was $7,000, and that was with a pretty good deal on the rug.

    If I had my druthers, I'd go with the wood floor. Much easier to maintain wood.

    We did 800 sf of the new house in hardwood. Not the cheap fake stuff, either.

    To do our main floor in wood, it cost us another $5,500.
