This Home Flooring Pros guide lists the most popular bedroom flooring choices.
- Carpeting – Carpet flooring comes in a diverse array of styles, textures, colors and patterns. It is warm on the feet and helps to insulate the bedroom from noise. It’s the top choice for bedrooms.
- Natural Hardwood Flooring – Upscale homes often include solid hardwood or engineered hardwood flooring in the bedroom. Prices are affordable enough that most homeowners can now consider it. Styles range from very traditional products like wide-plank, stressed floors to more contemporary natural hardwood floors with narrower planks and cleaner lines. Bamboo flooring can be considered in this category too.
- Laminate Flooring – Laminate is a great alternative to hardwood. It costs a bit less and is very durable. The use of area rugs or runners for hardwood flooring and laminate flooring will help reduce noise and keep bare feet warmer.
- Cork Flooring – This material is ideal for bedrooms because it is soft and warm. It is also hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria. Today’s cork flooring for a bedroom comes in a great selection of styles and colors.
