- the color of the carpet everywhere else in the house.. a lighter shade of brown, or a mid-shade? I'm thinking lighter....

Having lived with both lighter and mid-shade, the mid-shade will last you much longer because it will hide stains much, much, much better.

My homes with carpet did not have kids, but did have a pet cat who sometimes tracked in mud and dirt, and of course shed cat fur in the spring and summer. Of course, I never personally tracked in any dirt, dust or mud. Haha.

FWIW,

Sassy
