DH and I are thinking of recarpetting our house in the next year or three.
We currently have three unconnected areas of carpet:
Living Room/Dining Room
Office (We have no children and never have overnight guests, so that room will probably stay an office forever.)

We will probably go with some neutral color. Tile (which abuts all carpetted areas) is cream/peach/terra cotta. Walls are currently a fairly yellow shade of white, but will eventually be repainted to something whiter in the main part of the house. Office is in blues. Bedroom will be in dark greens. So something neutral seems to be our best option.

Entrances to the house are either on tile or through the office so we also want the office carpet to stand up to heavy traffic (it's DH's quick route from back yard to his bathroom). Dining room is seldom used (and as I said, no kids) so clean up and spills are of no more concern there than by DH's reading/TV chair.

Here's the question:
We would like to do all the carpet in the same COLOR but in different PILE. We were thinking about something very plush and cozy in the bedroom, a medium to large berber in the living room, and a very small berber in the office (something chairs would roll over).
Is it possible to get the same carpet in 3 different styles? Would anyone like to give me suggestions of why I should or shouldn't go that route?

I appreciate your input!
