As Australia’s largest flooring retailer with over 200 locally owned and operated stores, Carpet Court provides the opportunity to select the right carpet for your home from a huge range of carpets of varying fibres, pile types and colours.
Carpet is a versatile flooring product providing both practical and aesthetic benefits to your home. It delivers a beautifully tactile experience and the ability to create a broad range of visual impressions. While carpet is a popular choice for living areas of the home, we can also consider the benefits of carpet in specific rooms such as the bedroom.
What should you consider when choosing carpet for your bedroom?
There are several factors to consider when choosing carpet for your bedroom.
Do you live in a cold climate? If so, a good underlay and a pure wool carpet will help to insulate your bedroom floor. Nobody likes to get out of bed on a cold winter’s morning, but sinking your feet into the plush depths of a warm, wool carpet makes it a little more appealing...
How much activity do your bedrooms see? If you have bedrooms which double as playrooms for young children, then easy-to-clean, hardwearing synthetic carpets would be ideal. Loop piles tend to be a little more resistant to wear and tear, spills and soiling. Little things like crumbs and liquid spills tend to penetrate cut piles faster than loop piles, but most synthetic carpets are treated with excellent stain and soil resistant chemicals which prevent staining and make them easy to clean.
If natural fibres are important to you, choose a pure wool carpet with natural moisture and soil repellent properties.
Carpet is an excellent noise insulator. If your foundations are noisy such as with timber boards, you may like the noise-reducing benefits of a thick wool carpet in your bedrooms, laid upon a substantial underlay.
Consider which colour will be best for your bedrooms depending on the size of the rooms and what sort of use they get. Remember, if you have other flooring types – perhaps tiles or hardwood floors - which adjoin the bedroom carpet, ensure the colour tones match otherwise your floors will look disjointed.
What is the best carpet for your bedroom?
As your bedroom is a place of rest and relaxation, a soft synthetic or wool carpet is ideal. Cut pile tends to deliver a more luxurious feel underfoot than a loop pile, which is important in rooms where you tend to go barefoot.

What types of carpet are soft?
Synthetic fibres are known for their excellent ability to resist wear and tear, soiling, staining fading and crushing. But did you know that innovative technological advancements mean that synthetic carpets are now also delightfully lush and comfortable underfoot?
Consider the beautifully soft Adeline carpet made from polyester. It delivers sumptuous pampering underfoot and looks stunning too!
What colours are ideal for your bedroom carpet?
If your bedrooms are small, a light coloured carpet meeting with light walls will create a more spacious impression. If a teenager’s bedroom floor will be buried beneath grubby sports equipment and have a lot of tracked-in dirt, a midrange colour might be better suited. Neutral carpets are a good choice for bedrooms where you may change the colour scheme – for example your bedlinen or accessories - more often than you would in your living areas.
The colour of your bedroom carpet also needs to fuse well with the remaining floors in your home. Bedroom carpet can often connect with the tiled floors of your ensuite, timber hardwood or floating floors in hallways or even living rooms. To ensure continuity and flow, the colour tones need to complement each other even through differing floor surfaces. So, when selecting the colour of your bedroom carpet consider which other floor surfaces in the home it needs to match with.
How can you get a quote for your bedroom carpet?
While carpets are priced per metre, you really need to know the measurements of the surface area you plan to carpet in order to know the cost. You will also need to factor in the cost of installation and underlay.
