The Guide: Bedroom Flooring

The Guide: Bedroom Flooring

28 November 2017

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)

1. Carpets

Cormar - Primo Excellence; Pontiac Blue

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

Alternative Flooring - Sisal Malay; Tigers Eye w/ Cotton Porcelain and Grey Border

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

Ted Todd - Geocentric End Grain Oak; Leda

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

Karndean - LooseLay; Boston

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

Forbo- Marmoleum Click; spring buds, Vintage Shadow, Rosemary Green and Eternity

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.

    We used Tailored Flooring to replace the ugly, broken slate tiles in both our kitchen / diner and family bathroom. It was something we had been putting off for some time as we thought it would be quite an upheaval. In actual fact, it was one of the smoothest jobs we have had done on the house, thanks to Darren and his team. The knowledge and efficient service from the whole team was second to none and they were polite, punctual and a pleasure to have around whilst the work was completed. The result is two truly beautiful new floors which make us feel as if we have two brand new rooms. We are absolutely thrilled and would use Tailored Flooring again and again – we’ve already given a business card to a friend.

    Thank you very much for doing a lovely job it is much appreciated. Your team worked really efficiently together – we were impressed

    Your chaps did such a sensationally good job I thought I must send you these photos of them hard at work. A visitor here recently who seemed knowledgable on carpet laying said he had never seen better. He was particularly impressed with how you managed so professionally to replace the worn through stair and bathroom carpets with the relatively unworn parts of the main assignment. All, I probably told you almost 50 years old.

    I used Tailored flooring to fit new flooring in my kitchen (Karndean), and carpet throughout the rest of the house. It's a project that took me just over a year, doing each room separately. Darren and team were so accommodating, great value for money and generally really nice guys. They allowed me to buy the carpet in one go,and store it with them until we were ready to have it fitted. They have their own team of fitters and were so flexible in arranging fitting, I'm not sure you'd get that with a national company. They were really good value for money, as I'd done my research and also got other quotes. All in all I'm really pleased, the carpet looks fabulous and I'd definitely use Tailored flooring again.

    From start to finish this was a first class service. Have used Phil's services before also and very professional every time. Carpet and tile fitters on time and job done to the highest standard. Will always go back to Tailored flooring.

    Tailored Flooring saved our bacon and did a better job than I could have imagined possible with our kitchen and bathroom flooring. We were due to have kitchen flooring fitted, so the kitchen was emptied, all appliances disconnected and completely unusable, and the fitter we had booked let us down the morning they were due to fit. I was in a complete panic as I had property valuations booked for the end of the week before which the kitchen and bathroom flooring had to be completed.

    Within an hour of leaving a message with Tailored Flooring, Darren had called me back and said he would be with me within the hour to see what he could do. Exactly as promised, he attended, measured and talked me through what he could do for us. It turned out we'd selected completely inappropriate flooring (soft vinyl in a huge, heavily used kitchen), and Darren guided us through better options available to us. To cut a long story short, he went out of his way to jiggle us into the schedule, order materials and the next day his fitter, Grant, was working on our flooring.

    The fitter, Grant, is a master. He was very tidy and careful (given the rest of our home is cream carpets), he worked quietly and very quickly. Each evening he tidied everything away. When it came to fitting the Karndean tiles, he talked me through the different options of laying them (brick style etc.) and also made his own recommendations from his experience. He measured the placement of the tiles to ensure there weren't any odd shaped tiles and when the job was complete it exceeded all our expectations.

    We managed to get everything straightened out at home in readiness for the property valuations, and two estate agents who had previously valued our home commented on the positive updates to the flooring.

    Also, they have recently moved to a beautiful show room on Alma Road which I walked past before they opened and had admired through the windows. If you want some inspiration, then definitely pop in for some very good quality, well merchandised and easy to browse carpets and flooring.

    I am really looking forward to using Tailored Flooring again for our next home.
