Which Rooms in Your Home Are Best Suited for Carpeting?

Carpet has been the comfortable choice in flooring for years, and there are plenty of reasons why you might choose carpet for your home’s flooring. If you’re considering carpet, here are the rooms of your home best suited for it.

Living Spaces

Any living space is prime for carpeting as your soft flooring option when comfort is the goal. Carpet provides the most warmth and coziness by a long shot. Whether you’re settling in for a long winter afternoon under a blanket in the living room or cheering on the Titans, carpeting is a great option. Living rooms are supposed to be the center of comfort in your home, and nothing says comfort like carpeting. How do you find the best carpet for a living room? There are many options available for carpet, making it easy for you to find the right carpet for your interior design no matter what. A great carpet should provide excellent durability and comfort, but that’s not all you need to look for in your carpeting. Finding carpet that is easy to clean and works for your specific home does require research. There are options that can fit any budget, so your dream living room carpet is within reach.


Another room of the home where you look for comfort over all else is the bedroom. A bedroom these days can double as a lot of things: a home office, a guest space, a second living room, etc. In any of these settings, carpet is an excellent option. If you’re considering carpet for your bedroom, home office, or nursery, you’re probably curious about the cost. What does it cost to carpet a room? Carpet is a fairly affordable option when compared to some other flooring options like hardwood or cork flooring, which is the closest in softness to carpet. The average cost for carpeting using quality carpet and carpet padding is anywhere between $3 and $6 per square foot. This range can grow or decrease depending on the type of carpet used, the size and shape of the room, old carpet removal, or leveling of the subfloor. The more labor required to prepare the floor for carpeting, the more it costs. 

Less Common Rooms for Carpeting

In which rooms is carpeting a poor choice? Not every space in your home is right for carpeting. Rooms like the kitchen, bathrooms, and hallways come to mind as places where carpet just isn’t right or maybe just isn’t necessary. Carpeting can be a poor choice in many rooms of the house depending on their intended use. Basements are often not carpeted, and for good reason. Humidity, the risks of water damage, and other factors make the basement hard to carpet. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do it! A finished basement can be a great place for carpeting, provided your basement is well-sealed and waterproofed. Basement carpet can help keep your rooms feeling warmer, your feet feeling more comfortable, and your guests more at home. Carpet might not be your first instinct for your finished basement, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work. In the right circumstances, carpet can work in a man cave or bonus room.
