There’s plenty of debate surrounding the best type of home flooring for kitchens, bathrooms, and other living spaces. Many homeowners end up choosing a mix of different materials for their floors but put much more careful consideration into their bedroom floors. Taking into account individual style preferences, budget, longevity, and practicality, to name a few points, it’s a tough call on what home flooring material to invest in for the bedroom. Generally, the debate comes down to two materials: carpet or hardwood. Here’s what is likely going through most people’s heads when making this decision.
Carpet flooring is a timeless and favorite choice of many for their most comfortable home areas. It is the coziest feeling and looking material to install in bedrooms. Carpet is ideal in bedrooms for its softness underfoot and how quiet it is. For many who walk around bedrooms barefoot, it’s a delight to end the night and start the day with carpet. Those who share a room with another will appreciate the sound-masking effect that carpet flooring has. The material offers more warmth to the bedroom in cold months than other home flooring options. Carpet is also great for family homes since kids’ rooms and nurseries are much safer with soft carpet padding the ground.
Hardwood is an appealing bedroom flooring option for several reasons too. Mainly, wood lends a classic and luxurious look to any room. Whether homeowners opt for solid or engineered hardwood floors, it is sure to pair perfectly with other bedroom decor and furniture. In general, hardwood flooring yields a high return on home value while being low in maintenance needs. By treating your wood floors with care, it will stay looking gorgeous for years. For people who do enjoy the soft feeling of carpet, they can simply add area rugs underneath their bed for the same effect while customizing the appearance of the room. People are concerned about hardwood floors creaking and having the noise reverberate throughout the home. A proper professional installation job ensures every plank is secure and squeak-free.
