Choice of Bedroom Flooring

The choice of bedroom floor is simply a matter of personal choice and taste in interior decorating. The bedroom is definitely the most private of rooms where rejuvenation takes place and so the choice of flooring should first and foremost be most comfortable for this sanctuary. The most popular type of flooring for the bedroom is the carpet which comes in a variety of colours, textures and designs to match any décor. Carpet is also warm underfoot, muffles sound and adds sensuality. However it can collect dust and mites and stains set in easily so regular cleaning is a must.

Affordable Bedroom Flooring

Laminate flooring is another popular choice which is basically an alternative to hardwood flooring. It is affordable and easy to install with the aesthetic beauty as hardwood flooring. It is generally very resistant to scratches, dents, warps and stains as compared to hardwood. The beauty is maintained for many years though it adds less to the resale value of a home than true hardwood. It also tends to be cold underfoot, slippery and hard. Some people do not like the ‘fake’ nature of this material. However when the budget is limiting this is the best type of flooring due to its easy maintenance.

Another popular type of flooring is vinyl; it comes in different patterns and styles and is very affordable and attractive as well. An advantage to this type of flooring is that it can be installed on old flooring. It is also budget-friendly, water resistant, and easy to install, maintain and clean, it also feels soft underfoot. Marble flooring is the most elegant though maintenance cost tend to be high as well as the initial purchasing. The choice of bedroom flooring should be influenced by the cost of purchasing and maintenance, as well as enhancing beautiful interior decorating.
