    A seam should not be in the middle of a 15 x 15 room, at best it should only be off to the side. This looks like a high row, especially if it is in the middle of a room! If it is trimmed it may be OK, then it may be a little darker.

    My think exactly Elmer, High row, trimming should fix it.

    My thought exactly... assuming it's 12ft. wide carpet, why would any sane installer put a seam in the middle of a 15ft. wide room?

    Sane installer? What leads you to assume that? ;)

    In all seriousness - "all the way through the room" and "right up the middle" are subject to interpretation.

    Or better yet - it's stock carpet and someone in the warehouse hands you a 8x15 and a 7x15 and tells you the salesman found these and was trying to make an extra buck - make the living room work out of these.

    It's not ENTIRELY impossible to imagine that happening. Painful, but not impossible.

    I agree 100% with the above professionals who have asserted that there's NO GOOD REASON for a seam near the center of the room described.

    BUT...........well, you either already know or you wouldn't understand.

    If Mr. Unhappy could pull aside the high row to determine if there’s a seam there it would help. A focused picture would be swell.
