In our last post, we spoke about misconceptions about carpet flooring, but how about carpet in the bathroom?! Is it the epitome of luxury decor, or a 70s throwback that makes you shudder? While other trends from the 1970s are back at the height of interior fashion, carpet in the bathroom doesn’t seem to have taken off in the same way, but there are a few benefits. In this post, we’ll walk you through the pros and cons of bathroom carpet flooring.
Pros and Cons
There are some reasons why bathroom carpet can be a great option. Firstly, warmth – there’s nothing that ruins a nice hot bath more than stepping out on to cold tiling. Carpet underfoot is likely to feel much more luxurious and keep you nice and warm.
On a similar thread, carpets are non-slip. Especially for older people or children, wet flooring in a bathroom can be dangerous, but with a carpet there is no worry about slipping after coming out of the shower.
However, these pros of bathroom carpet flooring, can be achieved with a bathmat. There is the issues of keeping your carpet clean. Tiles and laminate flooring are so simple to hoover and mop. That being said, there are carpets designed for damp environments, like bathrooms, which protect against bacteria and stay odourless when wet, including our Aqua ProTec range.
Finally, the look can be difficult to get right. If you are considering bathroom carpet flooring, it is worth considering the size of your room. Wall to wall carpet can look better in large bathrooms, while in smaller rooms, it may be better to stick with rugs or mats.
