just a thought on foreground carpet

i was just wondering if i can get a way with just 1 1/2 inch height of substrate on the foreground when im planning to carpet that particular area with monte carlo anyway or i still need thicker or higher substrate?

im planning to an uphill from front to back so its higher at the back. from 1 1/2 front to arround 3-4 inches at the rear

if not posible, what is the ideal height of substrate on the foreground to carpet monte carlo? thanks! any ideas is very much appreciated

You will be just fine with the 1-1/2" height. I have seen people go even shorter in the front and have success.

Best,
Nate
