What Are the Pros and Cons of LVT Versus Carpet in a Bedroom?


Things to Consider When Choosing Your Bedroom Flooring

Maintenance and Care

Spills on carpets can result in noticeable damage or staining and create odors that are difficult to eliminate when it seeps into the carpet padding. (You always know when somebody with carpet in their house has cats, right?) . Metroflor luxury vinyl flooring is designed to be resistant to stains and inhibits the growth of mold and mildew and resulting odors when treated with an antimicrobial.

Luxury vinyl tile and plank are easy to clean. You don’t need a vacuum to keep your LVT spotless. You can sweep your floor with a broom or a dust mop to keep it clean.

Cost and Longevity

Carpet, especially lower-end carpet, tends to be cheaper to install than LVT. However, luxury vinyl floors can last much longer than carpet. You’ll likely have to replace your carpet every five to 15 years or even sooner if parts of it become worn or overly stained. Many pets tend to scratch carpet, especially cats whose natural instinct is to scratch and mark their territory. Ripped up carpet may be expensive to repair.

On the other hand, luxury vinyl flooring can last up to 25 years with proper care and maintenance. Not to mention, your animals will likely not have the urge to destroy it. Many luxury vinyl floors actually have Petproof warranties.


Many people choose to have carpet in their homes because they enjoy a floor that’s soft and comfortable to walk on. Luxury vinyl isn’t as soft carpet, but it has more give than stone, ceramic tile, hardwood or laminate floors. .

You can still create a soft, cozy bedroom feel with LVT or LVP by adding area rugs on top of your LVT flooring. Not only do area rugs keep your feet warm and comfortable, they’re also easier to clean than carpeting and look beautiful combined with LVT floors, giving you the best of both words.

Future Return on Investment

You probably won’t stay in your house forever. You might even be thinking about selling soon and are looking for affordable home improvements that will increase the value of your home or make it more attractive to shoppers. Many people looking for a new home will be drawn to quality features and upgrades, like granite countertops, walk-in showers and beautiful floors.

Luxury vinyl is a great option for present and future homeowners looking for eye-catching flooring that is durable, affordable and easy to clean. Because it lasts for so long, you likely won’t ever have to replace your luxury vinyl floors before selling your home.

Carpet is generally less attractive to homebuyers. It’s often one of the first things people replace after buying a new home.
