When it comes to bedroom flooring, there are a few things you’ll want to consider to determine the best bedroom flooring for your home including:
Choosing thicker boards or opting for underlay is a great choice for bedrooms or upstairs apartments because it helps create a sound barrier between floors. When paired with underlay where possible, it also helps with heat insulation, which can be particularly important for some homes during those cold winter nights.
If there’s any room where you can save some money, it’s the bedroom. Since it’s unlikely that most of your guests will see it, we advise putting more budget towards your kitchen, hallway, or living room. Due to this, it can be a good idea to opt for a cheaper material such as laminate or vinyl, especially when working with a limited budget.
Whether or not you match your bedroom flooring to your hallway is completely up to you. It’s not necessary that you do, however, we do advise ensuring both floors are of a similar thickness.
If you’re looking for pet-friendly flooring, then you’re in the right place. We’ve covered everything you need to know in our pet-friendly flooring blog. From scratch resistance and slip resistance to the general durability and maintenance of our flooring options. Discover the pros and cons of each and find the best solution for your home here.
The cost of your bedroom flooring will depend on a few factors such as the flooring type, size and shape of the room, installation type, and the state of your current subfloor as well as any other prep work required. For accurate pricing, we suggest using our calculator. You can find this on each product page. However, if you do not know your measurements, or what product you want yet, it may be worth getting an estimated price from HomeHow.
The answer to this question comes down to personal preference. Carpets are often preferred in bedrooms for their warmth, comfort, and sound insulation. However, decent underlay can provide the comfort and sound insulation required if necessary. Plus, rugs or underfloor heating can often accompany your flooring for additional warmth and cosiness. However, it’s important to note that underfloor heating cannot be used alongside solid wood flooring. So, if you plan on having underfloor heating, you’ll want to consider our solid wood alternative, engineered wood flooring. Engineered wood flooring has a wear layer of hardwood, so it offers the same appearance but with additional durability and heat resistance.
Or, for a soft underfoot, you could opt for luxury vinyl tiles. LVT flooring (also known as luxury vinyl tiles) offers the same appearance as wood but with built-in underlay. LVT flooring is also well-suited for underfloor heating since it features thinner boards that can conduct and transfer heat more easily. LVT flooring is also a better option when it comes to children or pets. Carpets are often quickly destroyed by pets, particularly cats. This can often be a pain when carpets take such a long time to properly clean too. Whereas LVT flooring is highly scratch-resistant and easy to maintain. Solid wood and hardwood flooring can often be damaged by pets too but can be protected better when finished with lacquer. Both solid wood and engineered wood can also be sanded and refinished if they do become damaged, whereas carpet will need replacing.
Whilst carpets tend to be less expensive than hardwood flooring, they also offer a generally lower lifespan in bedrooms as well as the added drawback of collecting dust, hair, and dirt. As well as this, cheaper carpets with glued backs can cause allergy issues, resulting in a worse night’s sleep.
Laminate makes a great bedroom flooring choice for those on a tight budget. However, it should be installed alongside suitable underlay so that you can get the most from your flooring. This will add some well-needed sound and heat insulation to your bedroom.
Yes, vinyl flooring makes a great choice for bedrooms, particularly children's bedrooms. We often find that a lot of our customers prefer to opt for vinyl rather than hardwood in kids' bedrooms. Not only because it’s a cost-effective alternative, but it’s also easy to repair small areas and 100% waterproof.
For an efficient bedroom renovation, follow these steps:
The installation process for your new bedroom flooring will depend on what type of floor you choose. However, a general rule that you can follow for bedroom installations (regardless of floor type) is to lay the flooring in the same direction as your main light source. If you can, make sure it is in the same line as the entrance as well, starting in the left corner of your longest wall. However, if you have more than one door or window this may be trickier. In this case, you should choose whichever direction is easiest to install.
For more information regarding the installation process, please check the flooring manufacturers' guidelines, or keep an eye out for our installation guides.
While it’s certainly not a new concept, hardwood flooring is increasing in popularity as bedroom flooring with more and more people deciding against carpets. This is due in part to it being easier to maintain and clean.
Parquet flooring is also becoming more popular as it offers an added level of design to an otherwise plain room.
Depending on the floor type and thickness that you choose, it may be necessary to put some sound insulation in place. If this is the case, then you’ll want to choose a floor that can be placed with underlay. For soundproofing, we suggest a thicker underlay such as our 5mm underlay which offers great acoustics, insulation properties, and a damp-proof membrane. However, for a fully soundproof room, more drastic measures may need to be put in place. For example, if you are trying to create a fully soundproof room for drumming, then you’ll want to consider soundproofing curtains, secondary glazing, or acoustic caulk. However, for most homes, our 5mm underlay will provide more than enough sound insulation.
Let’s face it, carpets are becoming outdated. So, if you’re looking for some better alternatives for your bedroom flooring, here are some ideas:
Engineered Wood Flooring: Extremely durable, ideal for underfloor heating, and can be refinished.
Solid Wood Flooring: Aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting, and adds value to your home.
Laminate Wood Flooring: Budget-friendly, scratch-resistant, and easy to install.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles: Comfortable, durable, and fully waterproof.
Parquet Flooring: Stable, durable, and offers a unique appearance.
If you suffer from allergies, choosing flooring such as carpet will not help. Carpets are renowned for accumulating dust, hairs, muck, and debris. Plus, the thick fibres allow something for the dirt to cling to or hide under. Therefore, regular cleaning and vacuuming is a must. However, hardwood floors (and their alternatives such as engineered wood) offer no place for allergens to hide. So, while they’re not hypoallergenic, they are often much better for allergy sufferers.
Generally speaking, board thickness is a case of personal preference. However, thicker boards do tend to be more hard-wearing and provide a slightly improved sound reduction performance. As well as this, thicker boards are usually more suited to higher traffic areas, where they can withstand greater use.
The board thickness options available will depend on the floor type you choose. Overall, we advise choosing thicker boards for insulating heat and providing better acoustics, or thinner boards for saving on costs.
The wear layer refers to the top, aesthetic surface layer of real wood, which gives the engineered flooring its look. Thicker wear layers, whilst usually more expensive, offer greater durability and the option to sand more frequently, meaning flooring can be refreshed more times before being replaced.
Most engineered wood floors, regardless of the thickness of the wear layer, will provide years of use, maintaining their impressive appearance.
In most cases, sanding the top layer of engineered wood flooring will remove up to 1MM of surface, with a minimum of 1MM needed leftover for protection. As a rough guide, here’s the number of times a floor can be sanded, based on the initial wear layer thickness:
3mm: 1-2 times
4mm: 2-3 times
5mm: 3-4 times
6mm: 4-5 times
(Please note: Sanding times is a guide only, the number of times a floor can be sanded will vary on an individual basis.)
