Bedroom Flooring

With so many flooring options these days, how do you decide on just one?  Even if you narrow the choices down to carpet or a hard flooring, what kind of color and style should you choose? Or if you’ve decided on hard flooring, should you go with hardwood, tile, or laminate?  Here are some helpful tips to consider when deciding what type of flooring to choose for your bedroom.

Determine the Kind of Environment You Want to Create
Will your bedroom be comfy and cozy?  Or do you prefer spa-like or modern?  What kinds of furnishings and colors will you bring into the room?  By answering these questions, you can begin to narrow down the options.  If your style is warm and comfy and you plan to bring in rich wood-grain furnishings, you may want to consider carpet to soften the room.  For a spa, feel tile is a good choice.  Hardwoods and laminate are always classic looks for a bedroom.

What Type of Flooring is in the Rest of the House?
What is the reason you are planning to purchase new flooring for the bedroom?  Are you remodeling the entire house, or specifically the one room?  If you prefer consistency and are remodeling the floors throughout the house, you may want to consider using the same flooring for the bedroom.  If you are specifically replacing bedroom flooring, weigh out the pros and cons of each type of flooring.

Weigh the Pros and Cons of Your Flooring Options
Carpet is less expensive to install, however, it requires regular cleaning and occasional replacement.  It is also warmer to touch on your feet, which should be considered, especially when the weather gets cooler.  Hardwoods, tile, and laminate may cost more to install, but last much longer than carpet.  They are also easier to clean and are a good option for those who suffer from allergies.

Creating a new look in your bedroom may feel overwhelming with so many options. However, a knowledgeable sales consultant can help you determine the best choice for your bedroom.
