There are many carpet styles available and a few of them will work well for bedrooms. But there is more to consider than just the carpet style when choosing the best carpet for a bedroom. Other things to consider include color scheme, carpet performance (quality) and your budget. Putting all of these decisions together will reveal the perfect carpet for your situation—a completely customized product that your family will enjoy for years to come.
Carpet Styles - There are four carpet styles that work great for bedrooms: textured, frieze, cable, and cut and loop. These are cut pile carpets that are constructed using different techniques to come up with different end-product characteristics. Textured carpet is made of yarns that are twisted alternately to produce a two-toned façade. Textured carpets do not show footprints (traffic patterns) and vacuum cleaner marks. Frieze is another cut pile carpet in which each carpet fiber is severely twisted to the point that each strand twists over itself. This carpet style also has a somewhat textured appearance that is durable and performs well. Frieze carpet is available in a wide range of pile depths, meaning the carpet strands can be very short to very long. Cable carpet is made out of yarn that is thicker and longer than the others. It is a very soft and comfortable style that feels good underfoot. Cut and loop carpet is a blending of looped fibers and cut pile fibers that are combined to create patterns in the carpet. They are low-profile carpets, perform well and remain fashionable for a long time.
