What type of carpet works best for bedrooms?

The best carpeting for the bedroom needs to be warm, soft, and address your needs. These rooms all have so many different layouts and sizes and often have to perform double-duty as exercise areas, offices, or libraries, so there's no set standard or "one size fits all." The best choice is one that responds to your requirements.

What is a carpet pile?

When you hear this term in the carpet store, the flooring covering professionals refer to fiber height. Some are long and loose, like the shag, while low pile rugs are short and tightly woven and easier to keep clean and somewhat more durable. This is primarily an advantage if your bedroom is heavily trafficked with multiple uses.

Medium pile carpets provide plenty of cushioning but are still easy enough to keep clean. As the name implies, the fibers are neither long nor short, are sometimes densely packed, plush, and hold up to moderate foot traffic. A good choice would be Textured (sometimes referred to as "Trackless," since it doesn't show footprints or vacuum marks) Saxony. Another good choice is the cut and loop, which is how it sounds. The combination is used to create patterns, such as pin-dots or geometrics.

Berber style (also referred to as "straight loop'') can be very soft, especially when it is made from wool fiber...and that's why you should also ...

Consider fiber

Fiber is the foundation of a rug; it is the material from which the yarns are made, and it impacts performance and appearance. There are both natural and synthetic fibers; the choice will come down to your personal preference. The five most commonly chosen are natural wool and synthetics such as nylon, polyester, olefin, and Triexta. It's essential to know the characteristics of each so you can make the best choice.
