Poor homeowner: What are my options for inexpensive carpeting? I need to carpet a room in my basement, approx. 15 X 15. I want to use some nice soft carpet (not berber) but I am on an extremely limited budget. At this point I am looking for remnants, but the prices aren't really that great and it's hard to find them that large. I have also thought about using carpet tiles but I don't know how to obtain them... Can anyone in the industry offer me any helpful information?
