Flooring Ideas to Makeover Your Bedroom

Between the softness of carpet and the way it warms your footsteps or the modern elegance of hardwood, tiles or concrete, bedroom flooring options are numerous. Even though there are so many flooring options to choose from, any of them will definitely spruce up your bedroom and give it the facelift it deserves.

One of the most popular options for bedroom flooring is carpet. Carpeting adds a visual and literal warmth to a bedroom, not to mention it’s cuddly on the feet in the middle of the night when you get up for a drink of water. Many homeowners choose carpet for their master bedrooms. You can have wall-to-wall carpet installed by a carpet installation company like SMART Carpet and Flooring, or choose a large carpet with bound edges that will let some of the underlying floor show around the perimeter of your room. You can choose from a wide range of colors in either a loop or cut weave. If you're considering wall-to-wall carpeting, a reputable dealer can help you determine which type of carpeting is best for your room, depending on your tastes, traffic level and budget. You can choose from several synthetic fibers, or select a natural wool or silk for a touch of luxury. Best of all, carpeting is easily replaced whenever a room remodel is in order, allowing a completely different look for the room.

Tile may not be a type of bedroom flooring you've considered, but it's worth taking a look at. Whether or not it's right for your bedroom depends on your decorating style and the climate in which you live. If you live in a warm climate and like a Mediterranean style of decorating, tile may work for you. There are many choices, from ceramic to travertine, and you can carry the same tile throughout your suite, including the bathroom. Tile can also be a good choice in children's rooms, because it is tough and easy to clean.

Hardwood floors are a longer lasting option that also add value to your home and can be refinished many times to freshen up the look. They’re also a classic choice for bedrooms, as they add both beauty and value to a home. In a master bedroom suite, hardwood can be used throughout the entire space, including the bathroom. Wood is also a good choice for kids' bedrooms, because the floor will age with your child and isn't likely to need replacement. In the guest bedroom, a beautiful wood floor can make your guests feel like they are staying at a bed and breakfast.
