We are installing carpet into our newly finished basement. I have researched a lot and have narrowed down to two carpets. One I love the feel/quality and my gut says to pick and the other is visually appealing (and my husband likes) I have toddlers and a big dog; this will be a family space and play space for children. I believe we will use this space frequently/daily. Phenix Carpet -Glisten, stainmaster, Nylon, face weight 59, density ~1824, twist 6 Karastan- Upscale living, kashmere nylon, face weight 63, density 3211, twists 6, tuft rate 3. I attached manufacture information and I have a few weeks to make the final decision. Thank you for help.
