Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016


If you want to decorate a new bedroom or if you’re simply bored of the old one and you want to change its appearance, there are a lot of things you have to think about. Although you may not consider it one of the most relevant, choosing the right carpet is actually quite important for your bedroom’s charm.

Though it seems quite simple at the beginning, there are a lot of things to consider when you choose your bedroom carpet. Some of these could include the dimensions, the materials you want, but also how fashionable a certain carpet is.

Yes, that’s right. It’s extremely important to take a look at the bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016 before you make any purchase, because you may buy something that isn’t quite the best choice for you.

Of course that the most important thing is choosing a carpet that would suit your bedroom style and decorations, but getting a fashionable one will definitely get you a few extra points when it comes to general impression.

Bedroom carpetsBelieve it or not, bedroom carpet trends haven’t changed very much during the last 2 years, so the bedroom carpet trends from 2015 or even 2014 are available even now.

That’s a great news because there are high chances that you already have a carpet bought recently, so in case it matches your bedroom design, there’s no point changing it. However, let’s get back to our story and see which are the bedroom carpet trends for 2015 and 2016.



  1.  Light and neutral colored carpets for small or dark rooms

    Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016Light carpets will be always fashionable, thanks to their ability to give your bedroom a more personal look. These types of carpets are perfect for rooms with dark furniture or pavement, because they manage to create a beautiful contrast between these elements.

    Also, if your bedroom is not as spacious as you would like, carpets in neutral shades are the best solution to your problem. That’s because, when it comes to a small bedroom, it’s important to keep colors as simple as possible.

    Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016Avoiding the excessive furniture is not enough to prevent your bedroom from looking too overcrowded. You also have to take care at the colors you pick. A light or neutral carpet will make your bedroom seem bigger, more spacious.

    This thing is available for a dark room too. Either the windows are small or the light can’t enter the room for any other reasons, a delicate color for carpet (like pastel and light shades) will give that feeling of “more light” that you need so much, without having to change the windows’ dimensions or location.

  2. Patterned carpets

    Patterns are definitely back this season, so if you want to follow the trends, a patterned carpet would be just the right thing for your bedroom. Whether it is floral, geometric or even simple, a patterned carpet adds character and complexity to the room, creating a mood for the entire space.

    Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016If you want a patterned carpet, it is really important to pay attention to the other elements’ design. For example, if you have a fabric with a strong print, there’s no point choosing another bold print for the carpet, as this will only lead to a so-called “competition” between patterns.

    On the contrary, if you have a strong print in the room, you should go for carpet with a simple, hardly noticeable pattern.
    Getting back to our story, from what I’ve noticed, this season’s trends are trying to emphasize the matching between carpet patterns and the other furniture pieces. What does this mean? That designers advise us to buy carpets with simple, applied and woven patterns, like leaves, flowers or trellises because these can easily match most furniture elements.

    Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016So, before making up your mind and choosing a carpet style, consider a simple patterned one if you want to draw attention to your furniture. On the other hand, if your bedroom’s design is quite simple, a bolder, larger pattern would be just fine.

  3.   Thick pile carpets

    Deep pile carpets are in fashion again, and what other room is better for them than bedroom? They are perfect for bedroom because they give you that feeling of personal, cosy space.

    Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016Unlike short piles which, though easier to maintain, tend to feel a bit harsher, deep pile carpets are extremely soft and seem more luxurious and warm. It’s true that you have to take care at the mess, because it’s not so simple to clean them up, but they’re definitely worth it.

    Some of the most popular deep pile carpets are plush velvet carpets, frize carpets and also shag pile carpets. I admit the last one is my favorite. 😀 Even though that’s probably just because I got used to it, I simply could not imagine my bedroom without it. So believe me, this type of carpet is addictive. 😛Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016

    However, if your bedroom is a busy room, where people come and go, a thick pile carpet might not be the best choice for you. This type of carpet tends to get dirty easily, and the last thing you would need is to clean up the carpet weekly.

    If this is your case, a good solution would be to go for a short pile carpet, which gets dirty much harder and it’s also easier to care for. Though it’s not quite the same feeling when it comes to softness, short piles could go very well with your bedroom, and also get you rid of a lot of useless work.



Remember that neutral colors, patterns and deep piles are the main trends for bedroom carpets this season, so if you find any similar carpet that matches your bedroom design and that you like, I really suggest you to buy it. As long as it fits this criteria, it should be a great choice, that would make your bedroom a cozy, personal space.

Don’t forget that, before choosing a carpet for your bedroom, it’s important to think about what you’d like and what would match the other furniture pieces. Once you do this, you can start checking out the trends in bedroom carpets to see what exactly to look for.

    Really enjoyed this article! We have standard builders grade carpet at the moment and we hate it. Your tips will come in handy for replacing it.
    I really like the look of the thick pile carpet on hardwood. as you sugggest. Our furniture is a lighter wood and modern in style, wat shade of hardwood would you suggest to go under that thick pile area rug?

    • Anne says:

      I’m glad you were able to find some useful tips here.

      About what you asked me, I think a medium or dark color would be great for the hardwood. You said your furniture has a lighter shade so choosing a similar color for the hardwood would make it look too plain and boring. That’s why it would be better to go for at least a medium color for the flooring ( if you can go for a darker one, even better) and then you could also get a light carpet, it will also match the furniture and will be accentuated by contrasting with the dark floor.

      Hope this helped . 🙂

    Hello, Anne,

    Thank you for your article “Bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016″

    My son is moving to a new house and I’m going to tell him about your Home Of Art website.

    Do you think the carpet has to be the same for the whole house, or should he feel free to be creative in each room?


    • Anne says:

      Hey there 🙂

      I’m happy to hear you liked it.

      No, I definitely don’t advise people to have the same carpet in the whole house, because I don’t think someone would paint his/her whole house in the same color. So choosing a suitable carpet depends on each room’s wall color, decorative items and furniture.

      So your son should definitely choose a different carpet in every room, that’s what I say 🙂

    This is exactly the kind of article I am looking for. I recently moved and I love my hardwood floors, but my bedroom really needs an area rug to warm it up. It’s so much nicer to step out of bed onto a thick carpet in the morning, rather than a cold floor! Mine is a smallish room with dark hardwood and dark furniture, so I would probably stick to a lighter, neutral shade of carpet to avoid making the room look smaller. I’m definitely drawn to the beauty of patterned carpets, but I would probably save the statement carpet for a different room.

    • Anne says:

      I’m glad to see that you can apply the recommendations from the post 😀

      You’re right, a carpet would be much better on a hardwood floor because it is really cold and it may not be the best choice especially on winter. While having a soft carpet would make it feel much warmer, just like you said.

      The shade you’re thinking about is also perfect for your dark room, because it will make your room look larger, exactly like you said.

      And yes, you can add a patterned carpet in another room, that is lighter a maybe a bit more spacious.

      Thanks a lot for your interest 🙂

    It is very informative.I learnt lot more about carpet after reading your blog here.Now I think I can choose the right one for my bed room.

  6. Edwin says:

    That’s funny that I am reading this post, because I happen to be in the market for new rugs in my bedroom.

    Until I read this post, I didn’t realize how many factor are involved in choosing the right carpet.

    I will definitely keep this in mine when I am ready to choose.

  7. David says:

    I’m currently looking to put a rug in my bedroom and came across your article. And I’m glad I did because I know nothing about carpet and don’t really have any sense of style.
    I think a light beige would look good but I’m not sure about what type pile. I don’t want anything too long because I don’t really like the look but I also don’t want to have to clean it too often.
    I’ve always liked Berber carpets. Would that be a good choice or is it too far out of style? The floor is hardwood so I want it to look good and stylish.

    • Anne says:

      Hey 🙂

      A Berber carpet would by no means look out of style, actually these could easily fit into the Thick Piles Carpets category. Which means they are really in fashion and very popular all over the world.

      If your floor is made of hardwood, then a light Berber carpet would blend perfectly with it, and it would also give the feeling of personal space, which is so necessary in a bedroom.

      So yes, I believe this kind of carpet it’s a great choice for your bedroom.

    I love deep pile carpets but I’m a bit unsure of what material I should pick considering that I will have to share it with a cats that sheds quite a bit.
    My home style is kinda laid back/boho as I like to decorate with natural elements and salvaged materials. Hence I am looking for something colorful and cute but not too fancy.
    Which material would you recommend? Or by having pets I should let go of the idea of a deep pile carpet altogether?

    • Anne says:

      Hi Paula, thank you for reading my article 🙂

      Deep piles would definitely make a gorgeous material for your carpet, and I would normally recommend thicker piles, because they look much better.

      But as you have some pets, I suggest you to choose some shorter piles, as they are easier to clean and I think they’re better in your case. That’s because thick piles are harder to maintain, and in a home where there are pets this matters.

      So you don’t have to let go this idea of piled carpets, on the contrary, you can get a piled carpet, but my recommendation is to choose one with shorter piles rather than a deeper piles one.

      I love Boho decorated rooms, I think they’re really exotic and refreshing, and the good part here is that you can go for absolutely any color when it comes to carpet.

      I don’t know how many colors you have in that room, but if you feel like you need something calmer for the carpet, you can go for a shade that isn’t extremely bright. If not, any strong color would be good.

      Not to forget, when it comes to materials, I tend to choose shag piles (just a personal preference :P), but other options would be velvet or plush, that also look fantastic.

      I hope this helps 😀
