The bedroom is the most personal room in your home, and the flooring is one of the most important aspects of it; you’ll want to make sure you have a floor that is practical, comforting and suited to your tastes.
Carpet is the most popular choice for bedrooms for many reasons. Its softness provides the best insulation for noise and warmth, both very important in a room were you want to feel cosy and relaxed. Warm air is retained for longer in a room with a carpet, providing warmth as well as saving energy. Noise from things like TV’s and speakers are absorbed too, helping reduce noise around the house.
If you’re looking for flooring inspiration that’s a little different from usual, area rugs are a popular way to spruce up a carpet or provide a bit of comfort to a hard floor. If you already have a carpet floor but maybe want to add a bit more colour or personality to it, then a rug can be the perfect addition. Rugs come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs, so there’s bound to be something out there that’s perfect for your bedroom. A rug also comes in hand if you opt for a hard floor in the bedroom, but still want an area where you can walk barefoot in comfort – after all, your bedroom is the room you’ll want to feel comfortable in.
You might think cork seems an unusual material for a bedroom floor, with it normally being found in kitchens, but cork is seeing a rise in popularity as flooring for the bedroom. Although it is a ‘hard’ floor, cork is surprisingly soft underfoot as the spongy material rises back up after being stepped on. Cork can also offer noise reduction and heat insulation properties, although not as effectively as carpet. An advantage over carpet is that cork is easier to take care of and keep clean; a surface seal that is properly applied and periodically reapplied will ensure that the floor is essentially resistant to stains.
