Picking Flooring Materials for your Bedroom

October 23, 2012

When thinking about remodeling a bedroom, there are certain elements that add more to a room than others. Changing your flooring, for example, can change the entire look of the room. Given that floors have a profound effect on the overall look of your bedroom, you should be careful about choosing flooring materials for your bedroom remodeling project.


Before picking out materials that you can use for your floor, there are certain things you need to consider. If you were dealing with a hallway or a living room, you consider the amount of foot traffic that goes through the area as well as the durability of the materials. Bedrooms don’t get a lot of foot traffic. This means that you can choose almost any type of flooring for the room. In addition to this, you won’t have to worry about food spills or other accidents that might occur in other rooms. Since the bedroom is a place to relax and unwind, comfort should be on top of your priorities. If you like walking around your bedroom barefooted for instance, you may want to consider plush flooring such as carpets. Here are some of the most popular flooring materials used in bedrooms. I would recommend letting your general contractor or remodeler know the style you desire prior to starting any project.


Wooden or Laminate Floorboards


Wood is a great looking material that can be used in almost any type of room. These are also comfortable to walk on, which is an important quality in a bedroom. Due to lower foot traffic, you don’t have to worry about damaging or scratching your floor.




Back in the day, vinyl would probably be the last thing people would think of when choosing flooring materials for a bedroom. Times have changed and there are now many types of vinyl materials that would look great in a bedroom. Modern Vinyl is available in more durable options and hundreds of new designs.




In terms of sheer comfort, nothing can beat a carpeted floor. However, it does take more time to maintain and clean compared to other types of materials. 


In terms of design, your bedroom floor should be able to go well with almost any type of design theme. This is especially important for bedrooms where people often change bedding and curtains. Make sure to pick a neutral colored flooring material that will go well with any patterns or colors. This way, you can change the rest of the room easily without having to worry about conflicting designs or color schemes.
