Carpet is a classic choice for bedroom flooring, as it creates a warm and comfortable experience underfoot when you first get out of bed. The look of carpet can also help build a soft, cozy look to give your bedroom a relaxing atmosphere. Carpet can also help dampen sound coming from other rooms in the house, an important feature for creating a sleep oasis in your bedroom.
But not all carpets are the same - so how do you choose the best one for your bedroom? Luckily, we've put together a guide to help you choose the perfect carpet flooring for all the bedrooms in your home.
Should You Pick the Softest Carpet for Your Bedroom?
When you think of bedroom carpet, your mind may automatically go to soft plush carpets to give the room a cozy feel. However, there are a few things to think about before jumping into the most plush carpet you can find. Do pets sleep in your room? Does your bedroom double as a home office, where you walk in and out all day? Does your child run into their bedroom with muddy soccer cleats? These are all important questions to consider when selecting the right pile for your carpet.
Low Pile Bedroom Carpet
Low pile carpet is made of short, dense fibers. The solid and flat look of low pile carpet gives a neutral foundation to build upon with more color and texture in your bedding design. Low pile carpet in the bedroom is often easier to clean, making it a great choice for bedrooms that double as home offices or kids' bedrooms.
Specifically, berber is an incredibly versatile low-pile carpet that would be a great option for your bedroom. Berber carpet provides comfort and warmth underfoot, and it is available in a variety of interesting colors and designs to create your ideal bedroom aesthetic.
High Pile Bedroom Carpet
Carpet options with a high or mixed pile can create a cozy but sophisticated look in your bedroom. Higher pile carpets tend to give a more luxurious look, and they are less likely to flatten over time. Selecting a high pile carpet with a family or pet friendly label is a great way to get the best of both worlds.
Bedroom Carpet Colors
Like other types of flooring, carpeting in the bedroom looks great in a neutral color. Your carpet can complement other neutral tones in the room for a zen relaxing aesthetic. Neutral carpet can also serve as a backdrop for bolder accent colors in an area rug, bedding design, or wall color.
