The Ultimate Bedroom Carpets Checklist

The Ultimate Bedroom Carpets Checklist

Dec 02, 2023

There was a time when bedroom carpets did not exist, well…

No carpet existed.

But aren’t we glad that they do now?

So what types of carpets are made and which ones would be best for the bedroom.

Let’s take a look, shall we…

Bedroom Carpets And You

We all can afford to be fussy these days, there is a great choice of bedroom carpets, well just carpets for carpeting a bedroom.

Many of us want a carpet bedroom, so there are many choices but they all stem from different grades or you could say types…

It would be a good idea to find out what types of carpets you can get.

And from there you can then delve into the different sorts of carpets in their different grades.

Types Of Carpet

The carpet market is now a vast market, with many types to choose from.

Below, you will find the several different types of carpets and what they can and will offer you and your home.

Woven Carpet

Woven carpet is actually produced on a loom that is very similar to woven cloth, being cut pile.

This is most probably how the carpet was made in the good old days, and why should it stop now.

There are many different colored yarns being used now, I am sure a lot more than many years ago.

And the entire process is capable of producing very intricate patterns from designs that are pre-determined.

Normally, woven is the highest quality of carpet on the market. So keep this in mind if you are looking for quality in your bedroom.

Tufted Carpet

This type of carpet is produced on a tufting machine by using either a single colored or sometimes a non-colored yarn. Or you could just say that the yarn is natural without colouring…

If noncolored is being used, then the carpet will be dyed or printed with a design as a separate process.

Carpets that are tufted can either be:

  • cut pile
  • loop pile
  • or a combination of both

Machines can of course produce a lot more meters of carpet than weaving.

But, there is a catch…

And this means that they are normally at the lower end of the market.

Needlefelt Carpet

The needlefelt type of carpet is a bit more technologically advanced.

They are produced by electrostatic attraction of individual fibers that form a unique carpet with extremely high durability.

You can normally find needlefelt carpet in the contract market such as in hotels or other places where there is always going to be a lot of traffic.

So that means that they are hard-wearing, so if your bedroom is like that then it could be an idea.

But I hardly think that a bedroom will be a traffic area.

Do You?

Flatweave Carpet

The flatweave carpet is created by interlocking warp and weft threads.

The types of oriental flatwoven carpets include:

  • soumak
  • tapestry weave
  • plain weave

This type is not well known in the North American region, although it is very popular in the orient and Japan.

Hooked Rug Carpet

This is a simple construction of rug that is handmade by pulling strips of cloth such as

wool or cotton through the meshes of a very sturdy fabric.

Now, this type of rug is generally known as a handicraft.

So you could be looking at the higher price range as it is made by hand.

But I like the thought of it, don’t you?

Knotted Pile Carpet

With knotted pile carpets…

The structural weft threads will alternate with a supplementary weft that will rise from the surface of the weave at a perpendicular angle.

Sounds a little complicated but in the end, you end up with carpet.

Cut And Loop Piles Carpet

The cut and loop pile combines both looped and cut fibers together.

They do however provide a variety of surface textures for medium durability. These cut and loop carpets are available in either solid colour or different colours.

The several different layers in this carpet can hide dirt and footprints in formal and informal areas.

This being the fact, these sorts of carpets are good if you are not fond of getting out the vacuum cleaner all that often.

Saxony Carpet

Saxony consists of tightly twisted cut piles that are heat set straight.

They consist of two or more fibers that have been twisted together in a yarn, and they provide a very soft texture for informal as well as formal areas.

They will show each and every footprint and even marks from vacuum cleaners.

This one I think you need to consider only if you don’t mind its traits.

Some people must be buying them or they would not still be on the market.

Textured Saxony Carpet

The textured carpet is the best selling and it works well in informal areas due to the very soft feel.

They are tightly twisted and texture headsets for medium durability.

They also offer a multi-colored look that will hide tracks and footprints. ‘Very soft’, that is a good sign of a carpet in the bedroom.

Plush/Velvet Carpets

Both plush and velvet are lightly twisted and offer a uniform color.
They are very soft and offer more level than textures.

This type of carpet is ideal for formal areas due to its luxurious appearance.

So if you are thinking, or have a formal bedroom then I would look at what different sorts of carpets they offer.

Frieze Carpet

Frieze is a highly twisted cut pile type of carpet that is suited for high-traffic areas.

It has short fibers that will tend to curl in different directions at the surface to
hide footprints and vacuum marks.

Level Loop Pile Carpet

The level loop pile is constructed by weaving even loops of yarn into the carpet backing at both ends.

This type of carpet is durable as well as track resistant, due to the strong loops.

Higher loops in the carpet will create a more luxurious look. They are also great
because they will prevent dirt from filtering on into the carpet.

As far as bedroom carpets go, this one is also sounding good.

Now that we have looked at the different types of carpets. Are there any here that you feel would be the start of your search?

You have to start somewhere and know what types of carpets are on the market.

And when it comes to bedroom carpets, you want to get it right.

No rough and hard-on-the-feet carpets will enter your bedroom. Soft and luxurious.


At least soft.
