What are the best floor types for bedrooms?

The best of bedroom  flooring

Although it is usually the least shared room in the house, your bedroom deserves just as much, if not more attention and management than all the other rooms in your home. The bedroom is where we start and end our days. It is our own little portal to and from our hectic days.

Any decorator will tell you when designing a room, you start with the floor. Decorating or redecorating your master bedroom is no exception to the rule. For the best bedroom design results, you need to weigh in all of the best bedroom flooring options:

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is the most preferred of all flooring. It is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it out ranks all other floors in maximum longevity. If treated right, the quality of your hardwood floors will  enhance with time.

While Hardwood floors are a great investment, they are initially very expensive. The wood material is somewhere between $3 to $12 per square foot.  That can make your floor installation  price range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Still, it is wise to have hardwood in at least one room in your home.


Wooden laminates are more cost effective than authentic hardwood,while still reflecting a  similar look. They are an aesthetically pleasing choice for your master bedroom and can be easily cleaned. The only drawback when compared to real hardwood is the vulnerability that laminate wood can   be ruined by standing water leaks and unlike hardwood, laminate wood cannot be refinished.

Wooden laminate is a good choice for the bedroom as opposed to a kitchen or living room because its less susceptible to leaks or shoe tracks.  The cost of laminate wood is somewhere between $0.50 to $3 a square foot plus an installation fee.


Vinyl sheets and vinyl tiles are a very cost effective choice for your bedroom flooring. Vinyl sheet cost somewhere between 1 $ to 5$ with a couple of hundred dollar installation fee. It is easy on your feet, and will protect the structure of your floors.

Vinyl is limited because it’s harder to clean . manage, and  visually different in comparison to hardwood. On the other hand, balancing the money saved on vinyl flooring with a  complementing  area rug or quality furniture can  tie a bedroom together nicely.


Because tiles are water resistant, this flooring is usually reserved for bathrooms and kitchens. On the other hand, wooden tiles, stone tiles, and mosaic tiles all have such a unique look that using the tiles in a bedroom can be one of the most creative interior design decisions you’ll ever make.

As long as the tiles aren’t’t rigged, traumas from  late night bathroom walks or quick morning get ups will never be an issue.
