Go back in time and carpets were the default flooring choice for bedrooms, but head back into today’s modern interior design world and wood floors are making a big appearance in cosy and contemporary bedroom design.
There are heaps of benefits to choosing engineered wood floors for bedrooms.
Real wood floors deliver a warm and welcoming statement, full of natural beauty, durability and will stand the test of time for both style and quality.
From a practical point of view they are much easier to keep clean than carpets, which are easily stained and can be full of hidden dirt and dust. A regular sweep or vacuum and a wood floor surface is clear of any dirt.
It’s also a healthy choice, especially if you have allergies. Carpets collect dust, pollen and other particles which re-circulate in the air and can cause irritation.
And most importantly it’s a stylish choice. The beauty of real wood really does deliver natural serene style in the bedroom.
It’s also a great choice if you want to maintain the same flooring finish throughout the home for a seamless flow and uniform look. That doesn’t make it boring though, as when you want to give your bedroom a new lick of paint, or add some new soft furnishings, a simple rug can add your latest colour palette to your flooring and give you something to sink your toes into.
Choosing engineered wood flooring for your bedroom does not mean you are limited in choice. Our modern collections are full of an array of styles and wood floor formats, giving you just as much choice as traditional carpets. Whether you opt for plank styles or add some natural zzzzz’s to your bedroom with our contemporary herringbone pattern floors, from rich dark character oaks to cool and tranquil modern greys, a V4 wood floor makes a great choice in the bedroom.
