Your bedroom is your sanctuary after a long day; you are tired and just need your beauty sleep. The first thing people think about when furnishing a bedroom is the bed, but it’s time to shift focus to other important details, such as your bedroom carpet.

I have a plush bedroom carpet that I bought a few years ago. It was on sale, and I can say that it is one of my best purchases yet. The first thing that drew me to it was the color and pattern. It’s a beige carpet with a beautiful pattern at the center.

It has found a permanent place in my bedroom (I honestly do not think I’ll be changing it any time soon). It provides me with exceptional comfort because of how well-cushioned it is. The soft underfoot feeling is unmatched.

And the best part? It absorbs sound. If you are in the adjacent room, you cannot hear the sound of footsteps, no matter how loud they are. So nothing can disrupt your sleep if you live with a significant other or have kids running around.

We reviewed the following carpets and found that the Artistic Weavers Hapsburg Moroccan Shag area rug wins due to its color options and soft woven wool carpet material. Next on the list is the Lahome Boho Tribal area rug for its timeless vibe, followed by the Chicrug soft area rug, which scores the most points for its extra fluff and burst of color.

Types of Bedroom Carpets

The following are various types of bedroom carpets:

1. Plush Carpets

The first word that comes to mind when you hear about plush carpets is coziness and softness. This visually appealing carpet is dense and made from closely tufted strands. Plush carpets can often be confused with velvet carpet material from a distance.

The carpet material used to make plush carpets is wool or synthetic fibers.

The Merelax Modern Soft Fluffy Large Shaggy Rug comes in both neutral and bold colors, such as grey, black, maroon, green, white, blue, and beige. In fact, you have nineteen options for you to choose from, depending on your personality and preference.

The manufacturers of this carpet describe it as perfect for the bedroom and areas in the house that have medium traffic. It does not shed, so pets and kids moving around don’t adversely affect it.

Moreover, it comes with small dots on the back to avoid sliding accidents. A plush carpet without stability may be dangerous, especially with kids running around or on those extremely lazy mornings when you can’t seem to open your eyes; you’re not at risk of falling. 

2. Frieze Carpet

Frieze is one of the other popular bedroom carpet ideas. It is made of fiber strands that are tightly twisted to give it longer-lasting durability. Frieze carpets have a shabby look, giving them a classic, timeless feel.

Pros:

  • Amazing for high-traffic areas such as kids' bedrooms.
  • Highly durable carpet
  • Dirt and stains cannot be easily seen
  • Comfortable due to its thickness

Cons:

  • More expensive than some bedroom carpet options
  • Limited pattern options

3. Berber Carpet

Named after the Berber people of North Africa, this carpet can be purchased in both traditional and modern designs. The carpet is made of nylon and wool primarily.

Berber styles tend to come in neutral carpet colors, such as beige or brown. The more patterns and details, the more expensive it is (in some instances). The prices range from $5 to $8 per square foot.

Pros:

  • Highly durable
  • Stain resistant
  • More affordable than other carpets

Cons:

  • The cleaning process might be hectic, as you'll need to clean using low moisture.
  • If you clean it using certain chemicals, it stains, as I painfully learnt with my beloved carpet in my kids' bedroom.
  • Limited color options

4. Cut and Loop Carpet

This particular type of carpet combines looped fibers with straight ones. This gives the designer a chance to make any design they prefer on the carpet.

You'll mostly see carpets with geometric shapes like squares, triangles, or circles. You'll also see wave patterns and other abstract shapes on these carpets.

Pros:

  • Visually appealing
  • Great texture

Cons:

  • It has a worn-out look to it that may be dissuading to some
  • More expensive than other carpets, such as Berbers and Friezes.

Key Takeaways

Image Credits: pexels.com

This being said, the following are the most important factors to consider when selecting the best carpet for bedrooms:

  1. Comfort. Look for a carpet that is soft and luxurious. Be good to your feet' soles. For this, materials such as polyester and nylon usually do the trick.
  2. Durability. The best bedroom carpets should be resilient to wear and tear and last, years, even if the room is a high-traffic area. The two factors to consider here are high-twist level and dense pile construction.
  3. Stain-resistance. Ultimately, you'll need a carpet with stain-resistant finishes or fibers such as solution-dyed nylon that resist stains.
  4. Noise reduction. Some carpets come with sound-absorbing qualities, so consider these if you prefer a quiet room. They will help reduce the transfer of noise from adjacent rooms.
  5. Personal preference. This goes alongside personal tastes and styles. Choose a carpet that complements your bedroom's décor, such as neutral carpets if your wall color is neutral.
  6. Cleaning. Some carpets are difficult to clean or may be destroyed if machine-washed. Lower pile carpets are easier to clean than higher pile ones.
  7. Budget. We advise that you shop within your budget. The price of carpets is affected by the brand, material and quality.

On that note, if you are planning to buy a carpet for your bedroom any time soon, go for it. We'd love to hear from you about your 'carpet experience', whether good or bad.
