While it may not be in plain view to visitors, the bedroom is among the parts of the house in which we spend the most time, and so it's worth putting in the extra effort to make yours feel comfortable and inviting. Your choice of flooring can make a big difference to the overall atmosphere of your bedroom, creating a unique look and feel that reflects your personal tastes while also meeting the practical requirements of your lifestyle.
How to choose flooring for the bedroom
Here are a few things that you should consider when choosing your bedroom flooring:
How your bedroom flooring looks is one of the most important things to think about, as this can really make a huge difference to how inviting your room is and how spacious it feels. Flooring products like this oak laminate from Egger, for example, will really bring warmth and brightness to your space.
Your bedroom flooring should not only look great but also give the desired feel underfoot. For instance, our natural parquet laminate has a striking patterned look and texture, while our cork flooring products are soft and springy underfoot.
Finding the right flooring for your colour scheme and design can add the final touch to your project, allowing you to subtly enhance your pallet or even create a striking contrast. You can also add accessories like decorative rugs to your floor for added texture, or to give the room a more cosy feel.
Make sure you're clear on how much you have to spend before starting your project, and remember that different types of flooring can vary hugely in price. It's also important to balance the initial cost of your flooring with factors such as longevity and maintenance to ensure that you are getting the best deal for your current circumstances.
Different floors require different levels of maintenance, so make sure you look into this when selecting the flooring for your bedroom. Laminate flooring is always a great choice from both a design and maintenance perspective, as it offers a variety of designs and textures, whilst also being very easy to clean with little upkeep required. It's also nice and cool, which is great for the hot and muggy summer months!
Your lifestyle should also play a huge part in the selection of your bedroom flooring, as this will determine how practical it is and how long it will last. Those with pets and children, for instance, may want to go for something that's durable and won't stain easily. Bamboo is a great all-rounder, as it has beneficial qualities of both hardwood (striking look, good for allergies) and synthetic/engineered flooring types (moisture resistant, strong). Bamboo is also an environmentally-friendly choice.
