But wood floors are just as ideal for the bedroom, offering the same stylish, timeless look whilst being easy to look after. It’s a lot easier to remove a make-up spill with a simple wipe of a wood floor than it is with carpets.
This wooden tale from Oxshott in Surrey is a testament to just how good wood floors look in the bedroom, providing a simple yet stylish base where softer rugs and furnishings can be added to create a relaxing, calm space to sleep.
Anne-Sophie Walsh already had wood floors to the ground floor of the Oxshott home and decided that the bedrooms should have the same treatment, “We decided to opt for wood floors in the bedrooms as we love the look, and being a family home we could have the same benefits of an easy to clean floor upstairs and not have to worry about spillages to the bedroom carpets.
“I got in touch with our local retailer, Jeffries Carpets in Cobham, and discussed finding a floor that would be a close match to the older floors that were already installed downstairs. We selected V4’s Alpine Plank Walnut Matt floors as they were similar, but also have a lovely soft warmth to them which we thought would be perfect in the bedrooms.”
V4’s Alpine Plank Walnut Matt flooring is milled from mixed grade Black American Walnut. The surface is smooth sanded and sealed with matt aluminium oxide lacquer to accentuate the wonderfully varied grain and rich earthy walnut tones which over time mellow to suit the character of any interior space.
“A professional installation was really important to us and Jeffries Carpets provided an expert fitter who worked really hard and did such a great job. We are so pleased with the floor, it’s great to live with, the matt finish is stunning, and by adding a few soft touches we have given each bedroom its own style.”
