The choice will depend a lot on personal taste and space. “If the bedroom is large and bright, you can use more intense colors, but if it is small or not very bright, I am not in favor of adding brightly colored bedroom carpets, because they make space smaller and overwhelm,” says Dafne Vijande famous stylist.  

A CARPET IN SOFT TONES, A MUST

“I am more in favor of adding color through bedding than with carpets. In fact, I think that something clear is always better because the floors should reflect freshness and joy. It is a pleasure to step on a clear floor that transmits cleanliness, because the floors are usually the ‘dirtiest’ and darkest place in the house (the furniture gives darkness underneath, creates shadows …) and if it is light they seem cleaner and with fewer nooks and crannies “. In this case, it is essential to choose washable carpets .  

A ROUND JUTE CARPET

We have commented on it, carpets can serve to hide an ugly floor, but also to “balance” the visual prominence of a floor with a lot of personality, such as a hydraulic floor like the one in this bedroom. They are precious floor tiles, but due to their colors and designs they can condition the bedroom decoration too much. A strategically placed carpet, like this carpet from Ikea , can help balance your presence.

A CARPET ON EACH SIDE OF THE BED

A carpet on each side of the bed is usually the most common alternative. Sometimes it can be completed with a third at the foot of the bed. It is the best alternative for small bedrooms where you do not want to give up the comfort they provide. As for the size, their thing is that they reach the foot of the bed and are, at least, as wide as the nightstand.

There are models that, due to their material and how you have them placed – covering the bed and the tables, for example – will not move. But if you choose a cotton one, get a non-slip base that provides security and prevents slipping. They are made to measure or with standardized measurements.

WOOL CARPETS FOR THE BEDROOM, WARMTH GUARANTEED

It is the best option to provide warmth during winter. The wool ones are the warmest and tastiest, soft in the tread and comfortable. The only thing you will have to keep in mind is that the longer and curlier the hair is, the more it will attract dust and mites. 

MADE FROM NATURAL, FRESH AND SUMMERY FIBERS

Sisal, jute, hemp, seaweed or bamboo are some of the most common vegetable fibers for carpets. Perfect for the summer because of the freshness they provide, they are also very resistant. To keep your vegetable fiber carpets longer, avoid spilling liquids on them and vacuum them frequently. 

COTTON FOR THE BEDROOM, FRESH AND WASHABLE

COTTON FOR THE BEDROOM, FRESH AND WASHABLE

Cotton carpets are cool and ideal for the warmer months. Remember to also get a non-slip base, since its lightness and low weight can cause slipping. They can be washed in the washing machine, although you will have to check what is the maximum load that it supports.

CARPET THROUGHOUT THE BEDROOM

CARPET THROUGHOUT THE BEDROOM

As a carpet – this is made of natural fibers – it is another option only for extra large bedrooms. Create continuity and ensure a soft footprint every time. Although carpets are a great resource to separate environments in the same room, in this case it is the stone wall and the work headboard that achieve it.

ROUND CARPET S: MORE DYNAMISM

ROUND  CARPET S: MORE DYNAMISM

An option to give rhythm and movement to the bedroom is to place a round carpet. Although in this case they have a mainly decorative purpose, they also have the ability to bring freshness, especially if it is made of fibers, and protect the footprint. 

COMBINE CARPETS OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS

COMBINE CARPETS OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS

An original option that helps you not do without anything: a fiber at the feet for that essence of freshness and, on the sides, a wool or cotton, depending on the season, to match the bedding.

WHY NOT OVERLAPPING?

WHY NOT OVERLAPPING?

You won’t have to give up anything! A wool carpet is the basis for a kilim with geometric motifs. But you can also do this with a fiber one underneath and a cotton one on top: the effect is unique and also, when summer arrives, you will only have to remove the upper one. 

The bedroom is, par excellence, the room in which we most seek to feel comfortable and create a cozy space . And think about it, there is nothing worse than getting up in the morning and running into the unpleasant cold touch of the floor, especially if it is ceramic, hydraulic or stoneware flooring. How cold, right? That is why the choice of carpet for the bedroom is almost as important as the choice of mattress .

There are several ways to put the carpet in the bedroom . Your choice will depend, above all, on the size of the room . If it is spacious, you can allow yourself to put a large one at the foot to make the room more secluded and cozy. You can also place it so that it covers the tables and the entire bed, coming out on its three sides. On the other hand, if the room is somewhat smaller, a very good option is one on each side of the bed – optional is to put a third at the foot. They have to cover, at least, the entire length of the bed and the width greater than that of the tables.

As for the material , the best alternative for the bedroom is wool , especially in winter. Although they attract more dust and require frequent vacuuming, they are warm and very soft to the foot. Of course it is worth it! Those of cotton and of natural fibers are better for summer: fresh filled the room, are comfortable and provide personality.
