How to choose the best bedroom flooring?
Here are some tips that might help you on your journey to select the right bedroom flooring:
Our bedrooms are an intimate place that we all have and retreat to for sleep. For us the first step out of our beds are greeted by the feeling of a carpeted surface or non-carpeted surface. For some people the feeling of being greeted by a warm plushy feeling on their feet is a part of their mornings. While others might not like that feeling and prefer the cool crisp surface that a hardwood or laminate flooring would offer. The great thing about flooring over carpet is that you place a mat near your bed to greet your feet without covering the entire room with carpet.
The trend of ditching carpet over flooring is still going strong as carpet can have a lot of hang ups compared to a flooring like hardwood or laminate. Hardwood flooring has a lot of appeal that is timeless and can add beauty to pretty much any style of decor. The most common styles of wood flooring are parquet, strip and plank. The type of wood is also a big part in the colour and design of the flooring. Looking at the different types of wood to get a better representation of the natural colours the wood has to offer to spruce up your bedroom.
Much hardwood flooring can be heated with underfloor heating as well if you are worried about it being too cold in the winter. Although your bedroom often won’t have spills and messes like a kitchen, having a stain on carpet can be a big eyesore. With hardwood or laminate you can quickly clean up spills to prevent staining. Having animals can also destroy carpet faster than other surfaces as their nails, hair and dander can cause many problems for carpet, along with any accidents that the animal makes on the floor. Hardwood can face damage from pet nails as well, but can be sanded in to fix it, as well as being able to quickly wipe up accidents on the floor. If all liquids are cleaned up quickly from hardwood the wood will not face any warping damage. There are two different types of wood flooring. Solid wood flooring are planks that are a solid piece of wood through and through. Engineered wood floors are created using three to nine layers of different wood veneers. Engineered wood can make a bedroom look luxurious and rich in natural materials. The layers of wood veneers makes the flooring more solid than solid wood. Hardwood will typically add real estate value to a property due to its sought after nature. One of the downsides to hardwood is the lack of noise reduction and the cost. Maintenance can be tricky with hardwood as it will need to be sealed occasionally and eventually in many years, stripped and refinished.

Laminate offers a lot of the advantages that hardwood does at a lower cost. If you are unsure about the costs and installation process you can always go to Golden Elite Flooring in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Their staff are there to help you make the best choice for your bedroom flooring needs. Laminate flooring will not feel like solid wood when walked on but offer a very similar look for a budget. Also because your bedroom likely isn’t a high traffic area, you don’t have to worry as much about the resilience required to prevent high amounts of wear and tear. The amount you spend will typically correlate with the laminates ability to mimic hardwood. The more you spend the more it will look like hardwood, fooling the eye. Laminate also offers the same heating advantages as hardwood does with underfloor heating. Laminate comes in a wide range or wood-tone colours and styles to flatter your bedroom.

Going back to carpet we come to the most popular of the choices for bedrooms. Typically people enjoy the comfort the plush surface of the carpet brings. Not only can it be very comfortable for your feet, it also serves as a helpful way of dampening sounds. It also can help insulate a room and help maintain a selected room temperature. The fact that carpet is cheap and comes in many style options adds to its popularity as a flooring option in bedrooms. There are different categories of carpet, the two major ones are loop pile and cut pile. Cut pile carpeting fiber tips are cut, while loop pile is left uncut and looped. Textured cut-pile carpeting is the most popular carpet type for bedrooms because of its soft and casual look. It is also very resistant to dirt. Carpet downsides include allergens that get trapped inside the fibers, difficulty cleaning and can have formaldehyde gases on it, creating a health concern to some sensitive to them. Choosing between carpet and flooring can be a difficult decision. Having one of experts over at Golden Elite Flooring in Montreal, Quebec, Canada help you make the best choice is always a good option if you are struggling to decide.
Bamboo flooring is another popular choice for flooring as it is eco-friendly, very strong and hard. It offers an anti-allergy and anti-microbial surface. It works as a good heat insulator so it will be warmer than hardwood when walked on. It’s very easy to clean and care for, and can be virtually immune to stains. The downside to bamboo is that it can easily scratch if you have pets with nails walking or running on it. Bamboo flooring comes in planks and strips that are to be tightly fitted together like its wood and laminate counterpart. There’s also many colour and grain options to choose from.
