Carpet Price Guide 2022



Here is a basic estimate about carpet cost. My Carpet Pricing Guide is designed to help you understand the current cost for New Residential Carpet based on it's grade or quality. 


No matter where you shop for new carpet, you need to know exactly what grade, type and style of carpet you need to buy. It's the only way for you to be sure you are happy with the end result. First you need to decide how long you want your new carpet to last, and what is your level of foot traffic in your home.  



Take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to see what grade of carpet you need to select for your home based on your own unique needs and goals. Then you can determine about how much your new carpet is going to cost using the chart below. 


Of course, you can always spend more if you want, but these figures are the low-end of the pricing scale. Wool carpet styles can cost over a hundred bucks per square yard. Carpet prices are rising due to our current economic factors and inflation. Delivery times have been delayed due to supply chain issues.

Check out my free Carpet Durability Chart to get a good idea about what makes one carpet more durable than another.



How Long Does New Carpet Last?

If you want your carpet to last 20 years or longer, you will need to buy a higher quality carpet than if you only want your new carpet to last just 5 or 10 years.


To use my Carpet Price Chart, simply cross reference your Level of Foot Traffic with the Number of Years you want your New Carpet to Last. The corresponding number you find is the approximate COST for Carpet & Padding that is designed meet your needs and goals. 


For example, if you have MEDIUM Foot Traffic and you want your carpet to Last 10 Years  you should expect to pay about $25 per square yard (or about $2.78 per square foot) for the right grade or quality of carpet you need. (providing you buy from a reputable carpet dealer)
