Considerations for Hardwood Flooring: the Bedroom

Posted on December 5th, 2011 In: Articles, Floor Sanding Services Articles

The most common kind of floor covering for bedrooms is carpet, but the growing popularity of hardwood flooring is leading more and more consumers to consider it as a viable choice for a bedroom floor. One thing that hardwood has in its favour is the natural ambiance that real wood gives to a room. This natural look can go a long way all by itself to create a warm, cosy atmosphere, one of the most desired qualities currently sought in bedroom décor.

The Decorating Advantage of Hardwood

Carpet has a big disadvantage. As it can take on such a huge range of colours, it is relatively easy for carpet to look “dated.” Most people have had the experience of walking into an older home and blinking with shock because the colour scheme is so obviously from the 1970s or 1980s. Once installed, flooring of any kind is a large expense, which means that flooring chosen today will need to last for a long time. The natural colour of wood, unlike dyed carpet colours, will not go out of style.

The Maintenance Advantage of Hardwood

Another important consideration is maintenance. When carpet becomes ragged, it is virtually impossible to renew it – the flooring must be taken out and replaced. When hardwood floors become scratched and worn, however, there is a simple solution that will completely renew them so that they look like new – without a single floorboard being torn out. All it requires is hardwood floor sanding or parquet floor sanding to remove the scratches and reveal a new layer of vibrant, beautiful wood.
