Our guide to buying the best carpet 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.

Bedroom carpet is a lot like Marmite, some people love it and couldn’t be without it, and some people prefer to have different flooring in their boudoir. Deciding to carpet your bedroom very much boils down to personal preference however, having said that, there are some clear advantages and disadvantages to it:

The pros of having bedroom carpet 

  • It’s soft underfoot
  • It helps create a cosy sanctuary feel
  • It brings warmth to your bedroom
  • It enables you to quietly pad around
  • It can help bring your interior décor together
  • It adds a luxurious touch to the room

The cons of having bedroom carpet  

  • It can collect dust and contribute to allergies.
  • It’s easily stained, especially if it’s a light colour.
  • It has to be regularly vacuumed to stay on top of dirt and dust.
  • It can potentially become mouldy if exposed to moisture (e.g. if it’s located just off from an en-suite and people regularly walk over it with damp or wet feet ).
  • It will need to be replaced at some point.
  • It may fade if constantly exposed to direct sunlight, which can happen with wool carpet.
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 carpet that’s nice and soft underfoot.

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

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.

Also ask yourself: 

  • How easy is the carpet to clean? Short pile, non-wool carpets are an easier-to-maintain option
  • Does it need to be hard-wearing? You may need to select a harder-wearing carpet if lots of people will be trapsing all over it every single day, accelerating everyday wear and tear
  • 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? There are block colours and pattern carpets to choose from. Selecting a timeless colour/pattern will mean you’ll get more use from your carpet for longer.
