The guide to the best carpets for bedrooms

Whether you’re planning to change your bedroom flooring to carpet or want to replace the existing carpet in your bedroom, this buying guide is for you.

Written by:

As the place where you retreat to at the end of a long day, your bedroom should be a peaceful and welcoming place in which to wind down and relax. 


A carpet is the perfect way to complete a cosy living space. As well as being easy on the eye, it’s soft underfoot, adds warmth, reduces noise, brings your colour scheme together and adds a luxurious touch to your bedroom.


Read my suggestions below for choosing the best carpet for your bedroom.



What should you look for in a bedroom carpet?


If you’re carpeting your bedroom because you want to make it more cosy and snug, choose a high pile carpet that you can sink your toes into.


Wool carpet is great for achieving this and is a longer-lasting option too. However, all of the processing and production that goes into creating wool carpet can make it a more expensive option.


There are many synthetic carpets options that are just as sumptuous – and easier to clean than a wool carpet.


If it’s the comfort factor you’re really after, don’t forget that selecting a springier, more robust underlay can help make your bedroom carpet feel more comfortable.


Here are a few things to consider when choosing your bedroom carpet:


How easy is the carpet to clean?


Short pile, non-wool carpets are an easier-to-maintain option. Many carpets are bleach-cleanable, making it easy to protect against stains and accidental spills


Does it need to be hard-wearing?


A hard-wearing carpet is able to endure more foot traffic – useful if it’s an area that is regularly walked on.


However, if your bedroom is a less used room in the house, a hard-wearing carpet may not be necessary


Do I prefer a short or long pile?


Longer piles are fluffier and softer, but short, dense-fibre piles are more practical to look after because the fibres are easier to vacuum dirt out from and are less likely to get trodden down over time


What are the colour options?


Carpets comes in a huge range of colours and patterns. From neutral shades such as cream and grey to bolder options of blue and pink.


When choosing a shade, think about what colour will complement your décor. Also consider your personal preference. Your bedroom is your own space and an opportunity to show off your individual style!


Selecting a timeless colour/pattern will mean you’ll get more use from your carpet for longer
