Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. You want to ensure that it’s cosy and peaceful but also stylish and modern. One way to get this effect is with your bedroom flooring.
There are plenty of different styles and types of flooring to choose from, depending on the look you’re going for and the atmosphere you’re trying to create.
Here are 5 ways to update your bedroom flooring and create that perfect relaxing feel.
Add warmth with wood
Dark wooden floorboards help to warm up your bedroom, giving it a cosy feel without the need for carpet. If you can’t stretch your budget to real wood, lots of laminate and other engineered boards are good quality and are easier to look after.
Go for silky carpet
There’s no reason for carpet to be old fashioned. Silk or silk-style carpet is a rising trend and can add a bit of luxury to your bedroom. It will feel different under your feet as well, giving you comfort and style.
Don’t be afraid of rugs
Lots of us seem to think that rugs are outdated and have no place in the bedroom. But they add a touch of colour to an otherwise neutral room and give you a nice warm surface to pop your feet on when you get out of bed.
If you’ve got a bit of a nautical theme in your bedroom, the ultimate bedroom flooring option is a weaved material. Choose from sisal, coir or seagrass, but beware that it will feel a bit tougher on your feet than carpet. That’s when a rug might come in handy.
Create a sense of calm
A pale, lighter wood creates a beautiful atmosphere in the bedroom. It adds a sense of calm that can’t be mimicked by darker tones of wood.
Add some luxurious soft furnishings to finish off the style of the room and make it a place you want to relax in for your entire 8 hours.
These are just 5 ways to help update your bedroom flooring. But there are plenty of styles and materials available – just ask a professional.
