At Floor Coverings International of White Bear Lake, we know how important it is to make your bedroom space perfect for your needs. With so many flooring options available, it can be difficult to find which is right for you. Here are 3 reasons why carpet is a great bedroom flooring option.



  1.     Heat and Sound Insulation: One way carpet shines above other popular flooring types is through its insulating abilities. If you have other rooms adjacent to your bedroom, carpet can help to decrease the noise that is carried between them. Carpet also insulates heat well, which is very useful in our cold, Minnesota winters.
  1.     Affordability: Carpet is the inexpensive alternative to hardwood. While carpet does have a shorter life cycle, with regular maintenance and semi-regular deep cleaning, it can last many years. Hardwood flooring starts at about $7 per square foot while carpet starts around $2 a square foot.
  2.     Maintenance: Carpet gets a bad reputation for being difficult to clean, but today’s carpeting materials are quite stain-resistant. Also, this is more of an issue in living and dining rooms, as bedrooms pose less of a threat to food and drink spills. Rugs can be put in heavy traffic areas to avoid staining as well.
