The Best Floors for Bedrooms
Silentnight Beds have given their recommendations for what is the best form of flooring for bedrooms. “Attractive but comfortable” is the guideline according to the bedding company, which also says there is no real need for what many have perceived as being an inevitable clash between the desire for a style of flooring that matches the overall décor of the bedroom, and the need for something durable and practical.
Bedroom décor can be more important than is often realised. With a lot of people in the United Kingdom suffering from insomnia and sleepless nights, sometimes the problem can actually be caused by an uncomfortable bedroom environment, and the type of flooring chosen can play a big part in ensuring the overall comfort level of the room. The warmth or coldness of the room is one consideration that needs to be taken into serious account when choosing a style of flooring, a naturally colder room would benefit from a carpeted floor, while a naturally warmer room could get away with wood floors, which are also more durable than most carpets and would not require anything in the way of wood floor repairs for a great many years. “Home owners therefore need to consider a surface that will feel pleasant all year long, so wood, laminate and carpet often prove popular choices” says Michael Ewing from Silentnight Beds.
The good news is that all forms of flooring these days come in a wide variety of styles that should suit any bedroom décor.
