What's the best carpet for your bedroom?

Bedrooms and carpets are a natural match for many homeowners. Carpets are soft underfoot, natural insulators, and affordable. There are different styles of carpets - loop, cut pile, textured - how do you know which one is right for your bedroom? Indianapolis carpet store, Kermans, has a few tips to help you find the perfect carpet for your bedroom.

Before we get into the pros and cons of each carpet type, let's review three questions to ask yourself before you start shopping for carpet:

1. Whose bedroom is it?
Is the bedroom a guest room? A kid's room (that doubles as a play room)? The master suite? The answer to that question will help guide you in the right direction. The velvety, plush carpet you might love for a guest room would be a poor choice for a kid's bedroom.

2. Is there an existing room decor to match?
If the room already has an established look, you'll want to find a carpet that complements it.

3. What's your budget?
There is such a wide range of carpet that our in-house designers can help you find one that matches your preferences and your wallet. It's good to have a budget in mind before you start shopping to help narrow your choices.

Pros and Cons of popular carpet types

Carpet styles are influenced by traffic patterns; room use; style of furniture; anticipated wear and tear; and of course color and design. You'll want to take all of these factors into consideration when you pick carpet for your home. Most carpet comes in one of four styles and each has different benefits for your bedroom flooring:

  • Loop: Just right for high traffic areas 
  • Cut Pile: Versatile and comfortable - perhaps the most common type of carpet 
  • Texture: Adding new designs and a contemporary feel to cut pile carpet 
  • Pattern: Creative ways to make an impact with your carpet
