Whether you’re putting carpet in your bedroom for the first time or replacing what’s already there with something new, it can never hurt to read up on some tips before you make such a big investment. There are a few things that you’ll want to consider to make sure that your carpet is everything you want it to be. If you aren’t sold yet on carpeting in your bedroom, we think we can convince you that it’s a great option.
Your bedroom is one of the few rooms in the house where we think a lighter colored carpet is a great idea. In other areas that see higher amounts of traffic like the living room or kids’ bedrooms, lighter carpets are almost guaranteed to see food, dirt, or other stains. However, the master bedroom tends to have relatively restricted access, so you’re less likely to have those nasty culprits show up and ruin your beautiful floor. White carpet is elegant, and it will give your bedroom a touch of class without the fear of stains.
Regardless of the color, you should pick a carpet that will be comfortable. Many homeowners like to keep carpeting in their bedrooms even if they put hardwood floors in the rest of their homes because it can be jarring to climb out of bed in the morning and step onto a cold hard surface. Hardwood may also be slippery, which can cause some uncomfortable surprises if you walk through while wearing socks. Keep it comfy by picking a carpet that’s soft and thick.
Rooms with hardwood floors tend to stay cooler than those with carpet because the hard surface doesn’t absorb heat. In the colder months, that can become a problem, especially in your bedroom. Not only is it cold to walk across in the morning, but it may also make it harder for your heater to keep the room temperature warm enough at night. Carpet will help to insulate the room and make sure you’re comfortable even after the temperatures drop.
Carpet is also a great choice for your bedroom because you likely have lots of large furniture in that room. The legs of dressers and headboards often scratch hardwood floors whenever the furniture is bumped or moved. Many folks solve this problem by putting bumpers or pads under the legs, but you can save yourself the headache by choosing carpet for your floor.
Whatever your reason, we think carpeting in your bedroom is a fantastic choice. Let us help you choose the right carpeting for your home and you’ll enjoy the soft fluffy flooring for years to come.
