How to Choose the Perfect Bedroom Carpet
Your bedroom is the one area in your home where you can really reflect your own style and tastes, without having to cater to any other members of the household – and this means choosing carpets for the space can be a fun activity.
The main function of the bedroom is to provide you with a relaxing atmosphere in which you can unwind and drift off to sleep, so you may wish to make sure you choose a decorative scheme that reflects this.
A bedroom carpet in a deep red or brown can really make the room feel warm and cosy – perfect for curling up in bed with a good book on a cold winter’s night. Alternatively, you may wish to make you room feel more airy and this could be achieved with a pale blue or green carpet.
Choosing lighter shades will help to create a feeling of space in your room, while a more neutral colour is great if you want to be able to regularly update or decorate the room.
You could also choose a patterned floor covering – which looks great if you have kept the walls more neutral, opting instead to make a statement with the soft furnishings, such as the curtains, cushions and bedding.
Choosing the colour and pattern you want may seem like the hard part, but there is still so much you have to consider.
For example, you need to decide what your carpet will be made from. If you want something that is durable and tough then a material made from synthetic fibres could be your best option as it has been designed to be long-lasting. This could also be more affordable than some of the other fabrics that are available.
However, for a truly sumptuous feel you may wish to opt for natural carpets. Wool-mix and pure wool can create carpets that your feet will just sink into. And, if you compare it to some other floor coverings, such as hardwood, it is also relatively cheap.
If you are worried about health issues or have young children then 100 per cent wool is the ideal choice for you, as the material is non-allergenic and non-toxic, giving you peace of mind.
Now, you can simply choose the thickness you want – short and practical or thick and luxurious. You are sure to love your finished bedroom once your carpet has been laid!
