Carpet for Bedrooms - Why We Chose Carpet for Our Girls Rooms

This post is sponsored by The Carpet and Rug Institute. All thoughts and opinions are 100% our own! 

We have been in our home for 3 full months now and are thoroughly loving all the finishes we chose! It was super important to us to fully research finishes and take our time deciding on them since we are planning on staying here for a while. We love our neighborhood and are excited to see it grow.

Ryan and I knew we wanted to have carpet for bedrooms and our office. In our last home, we chose a standard carpet with no pad upgrade. This time around, we decided to splurge a bit on carpet and upgrading our carpet pad. We are partnering with The Carpet and Rug Institute to share more about why we chose carpet for our new home!

Carpet is a great choice for any room in your house, but I wanted to specifically share why we chose it for our girls bedrooms. Our girls are still little. They are 4 and 6, and are constantly playing with their dolls. They primarily play in their play room and in their bedrooms. When choosing finishes for their rooms, we knew we wanted to add carpet since they are on the floor so much.

I know they'll continue to start playing in their rooms more and more. Carpet is just so much more comfortable to play on vs. hardwood flooring. Like I said above, we didn't do any carpet pad upgrades in our last home. Since we added a thicker carpet pad, it has made our carpet so much more cushy! Everyone that steps on our carpet comments on how comfortable it feels!

We are extremely happy with our carpet choice. Ryan and I chose a loop style carpet by. It is made out of 100% continuous filament nylon. They have a ton of really pretty colors to choose from.

The Carpet and Rug Institute offers a lot of great information on the benefits of carpet on their website. Make sure to check them out to learn more! They're the thought leader in carpet, trends, and best practices!  The main reasons why we chose carpet are the beauty and style that it adds to our rooms. It is also super comfortable to sit on. I don't mind getting on the floor to play with the girls in their rooms!

Improved Air Quality

If you happen to suffer from allergies, adding carpet can be a great way to help reduce your symptoms. According to CRI, new carpet is the lowest VOC-emiting choice available when it comes to choosing flooring. It helps trap dust, pollen, and other particles in the carpet so that you aren't breathing them in through the air.

Comfort/Warmth and Noise Reduction

Carpet is the best choice in flooring if you want a comfortable and warm space to relax in. It helps reduce falls/trips and our dog Dexter really loves being on a carpeted floor. He runs all over the place, and being on carpet helps him from slipping.

Having carpet in the girls rooms also reduces noise. It also helps reduce noise from room to room. Carpet would be a great choice if you're designing an office because of this benefit. We added carpet to my office for this reason! It's not quite photo ready yet, but stay tuned for that!

Environmental Sustainability

Carpet is a great choice when it comes to finding a sustainable option for flooring. The carpet industry is minimizing the impact on the environment by reducing, reusing and recycling. Through the work of Carpet America Recovery Effort, they have helped to divert over 4 billion pounds of carpet from landfills since 2002. Isn't that so great?!

  1. This is a really helpful blog post! We put new carpet in our home a few years ago, and I wish I would have done more research before purchasing it. It's a light brown high pile carpet that is so cozy, but it collects dog hair like a magnet! I have to get it cleaned twice a year by a professional carpet cleaner just to keep it free from pet hair and stains. The next time I get new carpets, it will definitely be a more thoughtful decision!
