What Kind of Carpet is Best for Bedrooms?


What Kind of Carpet is Best for Bedrooms?

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary. A little slice of heaven where you unwind, relax and practice self-care and until your kiddos storm the room with tales from the day and plans for your next exciting adventure. Unfortunately for many of us, our bedroom can lack the comforts that we really deserve, feeling more like a place to crash than a place to recharge. It’s time to change that.  

New carpet is a stylish and affordable option that can help transform your bedroom into the cozy oasis you deserve. Soft, warm and comfortable underfoot, this simple addition will quickly make a world of difference.

Measure Your Space

The first thing you will want to do is measure the square footage of your bedroom. Since carpet is sold by the square foot, knowing the general measurements of your room will help you determine how much carpeting you will need and help you to establish your budget. If you have a budget in mind, this will help you to narrow down your options.

Understand Carpet Fibers

Your bedroom floor is going to be the first thing your bare feet touch each morning and the last thing they touch before slipping under the covers at night. Because of this, an ultra-soft, plush carpet is a wonderful choice. Wool is a popular option because of its luxurious feel, however there are many other fiber choices that will also give you that lush feel. Our Flooring Experts will show you samples of different types of carpet fibers and guide you every step of the way in understanding your options. 

Consider Your Lifestyle

To find the perfect carpet for your bedroom you next need to think about your house and how your bedroom is used. Is it truly your sanctuary or is it a place where your children and pets gather for nighttime TV watching and snuggles? Is your bedroom your reading nook or does it contain your home office? Carpet has many practical benefits including energy efficiency. It can help reduce the transfer of heat and cold through floors, maintaining a more even room temperature. Carpet also absorbs sound so it is a great choice for a room facing a busy street or above a room in your house with a lot of activity. And with features like stain resistance and pet warranties you will be able to keep your new carpet looking great for years to come.   

Find Your Style

Now it is time to consider what style is best suited for your space. While a neutral plush carpet will work with virtually any decor, you might choose to make a design statement with a unique pattern. A stylish patterned carpet can add great visual interest to an otherwise simplistic space. If you are not quite ready to commit to pattern, you can also consider adding dimension with a textured carpet. This is a casual yet durable option that will hide imperfections with ease.

Carpet and Allergies

Contrary to popular belief, carpet is a fantastic option for those who suffer from allergies. And wool is one of the best carpets for allergy, asthma and eczema sufferers because it has natural hypoallergenic properties, and absorbs common airborne contaminants, like cooking fumes, deodorants, cleaning chemicals and smoke, which helps improve the air quality. Our Flooring Experts can help you discover your best options for your specific needs.  

Care For Your Carpet

Carpet care is not complicated. Simply vacuum your carpet regularly and have it professionally cleaned every six months for best results. For more information regarding caring for your carpet, check out our top tips for carpet care
