10 bedroom carpet ideas to make your space extra cozy

Bedroom carpet ideas, in fact really carpet in any room, has had a bit of a bad rap in recent years. There’s just something about wall-to-wall carpet, everyone at one point was obsessed with ripping it up and dancing with excitement when it revealed ‘rustic‘ wooden boards or original tiles. And if nothing worthy appeared under the carpets, down went the LVT or engineered wood. Carpet just wasn’t an option.

Now we can understand carpet in a bathroom is something we hope never returns, but carpets in our comfier living spaces like living rooms and bedrooms are making a strong comeback. So to pay homage to this once shunned flooring choice’s resurgence we’ve rounded up all our favorite bedroom ideas that prove carpets are a stylish and cozy addition to your space.

1. KEEP IT SUBTLE AND SIMPLE

See, carpets can be just as subtle and stylish as your whitewashed floorboards, plus they and coziness and softness underfoot you don’t get with hard floors. If you are dubious about embracing wall-to-wall carpet pick a neutral color – whites, creams, light greys – they all add a calming feel and can be a backdrop for any color scheme too. And isn’t it just so luxurious to have pale carpets? Sinking your feet into pale cushioned flooring is so reminiscent of hotel rooms.

In any interior scheme, neutral colors and the comforting texture of carpet brings a feeling of softness and calm.’ says Jodie Hatton of  Brintons. ‘These are best suited to rooms where you spend a lot of time, such as a bedroom, where relaxing is key to creating a happy space. The texture of the carpet is also key to preventing the overall neutral scheme from looking flat. Where an alternative flooring like wood or tiles might make a room feel stark and bare, a soft woven wool carpet, layered with accessories in cashmere, mohair, and linen will all work to soften a look to create an inviting space.’

Our lightweight, warm Comforters induce sweet, sweet sleep – and take your bedding to the next level. Designs are printed onto the super-soft material for brilliant images and a dreamy, premium feel.

2. MIX AND MATCH

And at the opposite end of the spectrum, carpets are ideal if you are a lover of maximalist interiors. Why ignore the floor when you are layering up patterns? It can add just as much pattern and texture as wallpaper and is the perfect place to introduce a clashing print. 

Jenna Kane, Product Developer at Kersaint Cobb says that ‘statement flooring within bedrooms is being seen more and more, as the trend for teaming luxurious materials with vibrant hues increases in popularity. A deep, rich colored carpet is the perfect way to inject a touch of character.’

And this bedroom is definitely full of character. Covered literally floor to ceiling in House of Hackney prints it’s the perfect example of carpets that have shed their dated skin and can add so much interest and personality to a room.

Express your style all over your home with a feature-worthy rug. They’re made from a woven, polyester chenille for a soft and textured look. Plus, choosing from our wide array of designs, you’re sure to find just the rug to match your decor. Rugs are one of the best, attention-grabbing pieces to design a room around. Use the colors within the rug to help choose art prints, furniture fabric, and accent pillows.

3. CHOOSE A NATURAL FIBRE CARPET

Sisal carpets are about the only carpet material and style that has been acceptable in recent years. These on-trend natural fiber floorings look almost like large area rugs, adding just the right amount of texture and neutral tones for a room. They are simple, low-pile designs that are perfect for more minimalist or rustic bedrooms. And they are a practical choice too, perfect for high-traffic areas as they are hardwearing and stain-resistant.

If you want to add a touch more comfort underfoot try layering smaller, softer rugs on either side of the bed.

Invite the sun inside on your terms. Our blackout window curtains are a denser alternative to your standard window curtain, blocking out most light and proudly featuring your favorite designs. Whether you live in a busy apartment or a peaceful neighborhood, it’s always nice to have the option to shut out the sun and relax inside by the candlelight. Available in either single or double panel options.

4. TURN YOUR BEDROOM FLOOR INTO ART

We’ve all seen painterly rugs grace the floors (and even the walls) of stylish homes for years now and in the right setting these more statement, colorful designs can work just as well with fitted carpets. If you don’t want a bold bedroom carpet to overwhelm the space, the key is to key the rest of the room minimal and monochrome.

Now, we aren’t saying a faux sheep is minimal, but look at the rest of the space. The dusky pink from the carpet is used on the walls, for the curtains and the upholstery of the chaise. The space still feels calm and inviting, despite the brilliantly whacky carpet.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux-down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

5. ADD A THICK VELVET CARPET FOR EXTRA SOFTNESS UNDERFOOT

Plush carpets, the ones your toes disappear into, are perfect for a bedroom. A chunky loop or a thick velvet-like pile adds an instantly luxurious feel to any space and again there’s that hotel feel as you pad around your cushy floors. 

When it comes to color, solid is best with thicker carpets. And you can’t go wrong with an ever-popular neutral like grey. As Jemma Dayman of Carpetright says ‘Given that the bedroom is our sanctuary, a calm space where we retreat to for rest, recuperation and to recover, it’s no surprise that this soothing neutral hue is our go-to color choice. Offering sophistication and versatility, grey works well as a neutral base, creating a warm or cool aesthetic, depending on the undertone of the chosen shade. Not only does a good quality grey carpet create a calming feel in a bedroom, but it is also a durable flooring option that will stand the test of time in terms of style and wear.’

And by opting for such a timeless neutral color for your bedroom flooring, you can refresh the scheme as often as your tastes and trends change.

You went for the duvet… you fancy, huh? Now it’s time to finish the job and dress it up with some premium design. Our natural fiber cotton duvet covers feature your favorite artist’s design on the front. The lightweight cotton offers a more breathable option to keep you cool in the summer and toasty in the winter. Plus, just like your favorite pair of jeans, our cotton bedding gets softer after each wash! Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King sizes. Duvet insert not included.

6. FAKE A CARPET WITH A LARGE AREA RUG

So you ripped up your bedroom carpet already and now you want back in on the trend. Or if you rent and want to cover up some inherited flooring. Area rugs are the way. Big rugs that go underneath all of your furniture and almost touch the sides of the room will create the look of wall-to-wall carpet without you having to commit to having it fitted. Add to the allusion by layering rugs on top of your larger rug just as you would a carpet.

If you are looking for an easier alternative to a full carpet install, layering a couple of rugs in your bedroom will work a treat as another option. Stylistically and while still adding the ultimate cozy feel, layering rugs look beautiful and give people the opportunity to integrate varying colors and patterns into their bedroom scheme to create something new and unique.’ says Noemie Deed Founder of Cosy Coco. ‘In terms of practicality, it’s equally effective in the bedroom for underfoot comfort and warmth as you can position the rugs around the foot and edges of your bed. All-in-all, a simple, beautiful substitute to permanent carpeted flooring.’

Our customers tell us ALL the time how soft and warm our Throw Blankets are (the secret: Sherpa fleece). Even better, they get softer the more you wash them. They’re a perfect addition to any living room couch. Featuring a crisp, vivid design on the front with a reverse white side.

7. SWITCH WALLPAPER FOR A PATTERNED CARPET

See your flooring as a fifth wall, somewhere you can add color and pattern, and texture in a less obvious, more interesting way. So instead of opting for bedroom wallpaper, keep your walls simple and add a mural on the floor. It sounds dramatic but just look at this bedroom carpet idea. The minimal grey walls make room for the patterned floor, and there’s cohesiveness here too so the look doesn’t feel too bold.

Find somewhere soft to land. Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

8. GO BOLD WITH COLORFUL ZIG ZAGS

How cute is this fun zig-zag carpet? Sometimes going for something unexpected with your bedroom carpet can give a quirky edge to an otherwise quite classic scheme. See how this space feels classic and traditional with its grey walls, simple headboard, and layers of beautiful bed linen, and then there’s that flash of zig-zag that feels out of place and yet totally works. 

Try this out in a small bedroom where you don’t have a sea of flooring visible so you just catch pockets of the bold pattern. And keep it cohesive, pick a colorway that’s mirrored in the rest of the decor.

As experts in the field of sitting down, we thoughtfully crafted our Floor Pillows to be overstuffed, plush and firm. These cushions never lose their shape, and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful.

9. ADD WARMTH TO A COOL TONED COLOR SCHEME

A black and white bedroom color scheme is a classic, but this cool-toned combination does risk leaving a bedroom feeling cold and stark.  An easy way to counteract that, without interfering with the minimal palette too much, is to add a wall-to-wall carpet in a softer, neutral tone. A cream, or even beige, the carpet will add that hint of a pink tone to bring some warmth into the room and you can always enhance my adding in a few cushions or soft furnishings in a similar shade.

Give your pillows the makeover they deserve. Whether it’s for your fancy new memory foam or your old go-to from back in the day, our pillow shams are sure to do your pillows proud. Whether you choose the natural fiber cotton or soft, premium microfiber—our pillows shams are soft and cozy with colors that really pop. Available in Standard or King sizes.

10. BLEND YOUR BEDROOM CARPET WITH THE WALLS

Speaking of beige carpets, they were once dreaded by new homeowners and renters alike. It was the color choice of all landlords and every 70s renovation, and yet as we all know, beige has made a comeback, so we say it’s time to embrace beige carpets too. 

A very chic way to do beige is to go all over with it, walls, ceilings, and floors, so choose a bedroom carpet that’s going to blend seamlessly in with your walls. As this bedroom carpet idea proves the effect creates a very cozy, cocooning space that’s perfect for a sleep space. You can always break up the wall-to-wall beige by adding pops of brighter colors for contrast.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux-down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

WHAT’S THE BEST COLOR FOR A BEDROOM CARPET?

The best color for bedroom carpets will depend on the overall look you are after and your lifestyle too. If your bedroom is well used by yourself, animals and children we’d say avoid any lighter shades and instead opt for dark tones like grey and blue as they will cover a multitude of sins. 

But if your bedroom is a sanctuary used only for sleeping, there’s nothing quite like a plush white or cream carpet to add a luxurious feel. If you are concerned about wear and tear you could always add a couple of small rugs on either side of the bed, or in areas that see the most footfall. 

WHAT’S THE BEST MATERIAL FOR BEDROOM CARPETS?

Again, the best material depends on your style, who uses the room, and how often. Jenna Kane recommends wool carpets for bedrooms ‘they are ideal for bedrooms as they are hardwearing and soft underfoot. As a natural fiber, wool is also breathable, it will be warm in the winter but remain cool in the summer. The best floor coving in a bedroom is something that offers comfort, serenity, and is soft and calming.’

Low pile carpets like sisal and jute can work really well in a bedroom too, and more streamlined, minimalist look as they are low pile. They aren’t the comfiest underfoot, however, so be sure to throw down a few rugs too. 

IS CARPET IN A BEDROOM OUTDATED?

Admittedly, the jury was out on this one, but after hunting through our archive and speaking to experts, we are pleased to report no, carpet in a bedroom is no longer outdated.
