What Kind of Carpet is Best for Bedrooms?

Our bedroom should be our sanctuary. A little slice of heaven to help us unwind, relax, and practice self-care. Unfortunately for many of us, our bedrooms often 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.  

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

Measure Your Space

The first thing you’ll want to do is measure the square footage of your bedroom. Since carpet is sold by the square foot, knowing your measurements will help you determine how much carpeting you’ll need, and what budget you’ll be most comfortable with. If you have a budget in mind, this will help you to narrow down your options quickly.

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, most of us opt for an ultra soft, plush style. Wool is a popular option for bedrooms because of its luxurious feel. However, there are tons of Nylon, Polyester, Acrylic, Triexta, and Polypropylene/Olefin options to choose from too. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to understand what all of that means. Our Flooring Experts will show you samples of these different fibers and guide you every step of the way in deciding which one would best suit your needs and budget.

Find Your Style

Now it’s time to consider what style is best suited for your space. While a neutral plush carpet will work with virtually any decor, you might want 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’re 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.

Care For Your Carpet

Contrary to popular belief, carpet is a fantastic option for those who suffer with allergies. While hard surfaces allow allergens to fly freely through the air, carpet actually traps them within its fibers. Simply vacuum your carpet regularly and have it professionally cleaned every 6 months for best results.
