The bedroom is where we spend the most time in the house; granted most of the time tends to be when we are sleeping, but it still makes it a very important room. There’s a few things that you need to take into consideration when choosing your bedroom flooring: durability, comfort, attractiveness and complimentary to your decor. To help your decision, here’s 5 of the best flooring options for your bedroom (in our opinion)
Carpets tend to be the go-to flooring option for the bedroom. It’s easy to see why it’s such a popular choice when you consider it ticks all the boxes and then some. With the vast amount of colours, materials and textures there’s a carpet option to suit everyone. The variety of different prices means there’s a carpet for all budgets and to top it off it’s very helpful in dampening sound and controlling temperature which is ideal for a sleeping environment.
2. Area Rugs
Area rugs are very versatile and typically used in the bedroom layered over carpets, wood flooring and luxury vinyl. There are endless options when it comes to area rugs and whatever size, colour, pattern or material you desire there is likely going to be one just up your street. Choosing the right rug for you is definitely down to personal preference, and it’s a great way to add style, colour and texture to your bedroom. In terms of size, interior designers recommend at least 2 feet either side of the bed if the bed is placed on the rug. Rugs placed at the base of the bed should be large enough to use up most of the space.
3. Engineered Wood Flooring
Engineered Wood is a layered product that has a core of high-quality hardwood or plywood with a hardwood veneer on the top. This wood is constructed in such a way that it doesn’t weaken, buckle or gap when there is a change in temperature and humidity, which means that it can be used all around the house at all levels. Engineered wood flooring gives your bedroom a natural look wit the opportunity to choose from a variety of different colour tones, and plank sizes. With the added benefit of easy clean and easy upkeep it’s the perfect choice for a busy working family.
4. Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl is a great choice for a bedroom; it comes in an array of different styles and textures of wood and stone which gives you a lot of choice for a natural looking flooring for the bedroom. It’s easy to maintain and look after and LV will continue to be practical and stunning for many years. LV brand Karndean even offer a lifetime guarantee to all customers, which gives you the peace of mind that your flooring will last. An added benefit of this option over engineered flooring is that it’s a lot easier for fitters to install which minimises the installation time.
5. Marmoleum Flooring
This environmentally friendly flooring option is 100% biodegradable so is the perfect choice if you want to do your bit for the planet. This option comes in many colours so it’s a great way to brighten up and add some fun to your room. Marmoleum is a great alternative for a child’s bedroom as it’s easy to clean and non-slip.
