When it comes time to start doing a few home renovations, namely replacing and upgrading floors, why are we so quick to overlook the bedroom? Sure, we spend hours poring over the living room to impress guests and just as much attention is paid to the practicality of the floors in both the kitchen and the bathroom. So why is the bedroom overlooked? Ask any interior designer and they will tell you that the wrong floor in the bedroom can completely ruin the look and feel of the space. To avoid this, we have compiled a quick list of bedroom floor options that are trendy, attractive and long-lasting.
Warm it Up with Wood
It’s no surprise that hardwood floors are one of the most sought-after flooring options, appropriate for virtually any room in the home. Hardwood lasts forever, is easy to maintain and never goes out of style. It instantly warms up a space and is the perfect backdrop for layering playful hues and textures like bright ornamental rug or colorful furnishings.
You may need to think outside the box on this one, but hear me out. Cork (yes, the same thing jammed into your wine bottle) can actually make a great bedroom floor option. By nature, it is environmentally friendly, soft and attractive. Natural cork flooring is available in sheets, tile, mosaic or discs. It can be stained any color of the rainbow then grouted and sealed.
Wide Plank Hardwood
As far as hardwood flooring options go, this has been one of the most popular in our area of Texas for the past few years and with good reason. Longer, wider planks make your room look larger, more open and less busy. Not surprisingly, within the hardwood flooring category, there are limitless options. Top designers in College Station specifically seek out the unique details found in wide plank hardwood, as they add rustic charm and help make a space one-of-a-kind.
