5 Reasons to Buy a Tent Carpet


A simple groundsheet does not provide much in the way of insulation between your living space and the potentially wet, cold floor.

A tent carpet provides an immediate increased level of insulation.

Not only will your feet be warmer, the temperature of your whole tent will increase.


The effect of a tent carpet creates an immediate home from home feel.

A groundsheet does not shield you from a lumpy form, unlike a tent carpet upgrade.

You and the children will be much more comfortable sitting down.

ust think of waking up in the morning and a soft, bouncy feel that a tent carpet will provide.


I don’t want to take anything from the purist campers who are more than happy to hear the crunching sound as you walk over a groundsheet.

However, adding a tent carpet will really help softening the sound as you walk around the tent.

In enclosed spaces such as a tent, sound is amplified.

You’ll also have less chance of waking up those young children (or adults, if they’re lucky to still be sleeping!).


A tent carpet provides a layer of protection between whatever you may spill or drop and your groundsheet.

It’s easier to replace a tent carpet than your tent groundsheet.

It also means less wear and tear on your groundsheet.


Tent designs have come a long, long way in the last decade or two.

There’s only so far you can take a groundsheet design though.

Adding a tent carpet can add a relatively stylish, luxurious feel to your home from home.
