Bedroom Floors Inspiration
Find Your Bedroom Flooring Style
The key to finding the right floor for your bedroom project is to consider your overall aesthetic––what colors are you thinking of for walls and soft furnishings? Do you want to make an impactful statement or create a peaceful haven to retreat to after a long day? This should help you to narrow down colors and finishes. The good news is there are plenty of excellent floor options that coordinate well with rugs, feel great underfoot, and can last for years to come.
Once you've narrowed down your options, it's time to think about details—such as the width of your floor planks. Narrow planks can look more traditional and complement a classic design to your room; wide planks can provide a contemporary look while creating an additional feeling of space in a room. For extra design impact, you may be thinking about incorporating a pattern using hardwood or laminate in a chevron design. Consider whether you want the same floors throughout the whole upstairs of your home or if you'd prefer to differentiate between spaces. With colors in a wide spectrum from white-gray to dark chocolate brown, and finishes ranging from smooth, low-gloss Scandinavian planks to textured weathered barn wood, you'll find the ideal floor to suit no matter what your design scheme.
Hardwood Flooring Ideas for Bedrooms
Hardwood floors deliver a natural beauty that enhances any bedroom. Choose between traditional solid hardwood or engineered hardwood, which combines a layer of real wood bonded to a composite core. To truly put your own stamp on the room, you can opt for unfinished hardwood, then stain or varnish it to your preferred color.
Waterproof Vinyl Flooring Ideas for Bedrooms
Vinyl flooring is hard-wearing and offers lasting protection against scuffs and spills. It also offers wear resistance and waterproof technology on a budget. Vinyl floors are available in a range of different effects, textures, and colors.
Inspirational Bedrooms with Laminate Floors
Available in wood-effect and stone-effect designs and water-resistant and waterproof finishes, there's a laminate floor to suit every décor. If you're thinking of creating a seamless space that includes both bathroom and en-suite bedroom, then waterproof laminate floors could be the answer.
Considerations for Your Bedroom Flooring
Think of the practical considerations, too. For example, if you live in a historic property, a traditional hardwood floor might be just the thing to complement your home's original features. Or, if you have pets or young children, it's a good idea to consider a floor with added water resistance to protect against life's little accidents. If you're thinking of creating a seamless space that includes both bathroom and en-suite bedroom, then waterproof floors could be the answer. Both vinyl and laminate floors are available in waterproof versions in a range of different effects, textures, and colors. Additionally, if your home has underfloor heating, then you'll need to make sure the floor you choose is compatible with radiant heat underfoot.
And consider whether you want to install your new floor yourself or get a professional independent contractor to come in and help you. While an experienced DIYer can install floors, we do recommend hiring a professional installer.
To ensure your new floor performs well for years to come, we recommend using underlayment to enhance your flooring's thermal and acoustical properties. We stock a wide range of underlayment, adhesives, moldings, and trims to complete your project, along with cleaning and care products designed to keep your floor in top condition.
