Choosing a rug takes a lot of thought mainly because you need to get the color scheme right so that it fits in with the rest of the room. You need to think about the color of the walls, the color of the flooring and the color of your furniture. If you choose the wrong rug it could clash and the whole room would look off balance. So, think about the color scheme before you purchase anything!
If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
No matter which of your flooring ideas you decide to go with, make sure that you understand exactly how to care for that flooring once it is installed. There are differences in flooring. What works wonders on one flooring material might seriously ruin another floor. Some cleaners will work like magic on one kind of flooring and just stain others. Learning the appropriate methods for caring for your floor will provide you with an assurance that you won't have to replace it again for quite awhile (feasibly).
