How to Choose the Best Flooring for Bedrooms

Choosing the right flooring for your bedroom is a decision that significantly impacts the comfort, aesthetics and functionality of one of the most personal spaces in your home. The flooring you select not only sets the tone for the room’s overall look but also influences how cosy and inviting the space feels.

With numerous options available at Greg Stone Flooring, from the warmth of carpet to stylish LVT, we’ll walk you through the different types of flooring materials, their pros and cons, and key considerations to help you make an informed decision.

Types of Flooring for Bedrooms

Choosing the best flooring for a bedroom involves finding an option that is comfortable for bare feet and complements your interior design style. These are our recommendations for bedrooms.


Carpet is a widely favoured choice for bedroom flooring because its able to retain heat, offers a soft texture underfoot, and there’s a wide variety of styles available. From plain and coloured to textured styles, carpets also come in various piles, including the plush feel of thick velvet and the traditional look of loop pile.

With proper care, carpets can last up to fifteen years, making them a durable and long-term investment for your home. This longevity can be further enhanced by pairing the carpet with a quality underlay. Underlay not only adds an extra layer of comfort and insulation but also helps to extend the life of the carpet by reducing wear and tear. It absorbs impact from foot traffic and furniture, protecting the carpet fibres and helping to maintain its appearance for longer.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), such as Karndean, has emerged as a popular choice for bedroom flooring due to its combination of durability, aesthetic appeal and easy maintenance. LVT is designed to replicate the look of natural materials like wood, offering an array of styles that suit various interior design preferences. Unlike traditional vinyl, LVT flooring provides a more realistic texture and depth, closely mimicking the appearance of high-end flooring materials while offering the practical benefits of vinyl.

Comfort is important feature of LVT. The flooring is softer underfoot compared to traditional tiles or hardwood floors, providing a more comfortable walking surface. Additionally, LVT can be paired with underfloor heating systems, ensuring that your bedroom remains warm and inviting even during colder months. Additionally, LVT like Karndean is water-resistant, making it a suitable option for bedrooms connected to en-suite bathrooms or other areas prone to moisture.


Laminate flooring is an economical alternative to genuine wooden flooring, offering a similar timeless appearance without compromising quality. It’s particularly popular in homes with children and pets due to its durability and water-resistant top layer. Available in a variety of stains, colours and styles, laminate can provide a stylish look for any bedroom.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Bedroom Flooring


Comfort is the top priority when selecting bedroom flooring – this space is meant for rest and relaxation, so you want soft materials underfoot like wool carpets to provide a plush and warm surface. If you prefer harder surfaces, consider using underfloor heating with materials like laminate to maintain a cosy feel.


The aesthetic appeal of flooring significantly impacts the overall look and feel of your bedroom. LVT and laminate offer a timeless look, while carpet adds a touch of warmth and cosiness. Vinyl and tile provide a wide range of design options, allowing you to personalise your space with unique patterns and colours that reflect your style.


Different flooring materials require varying levels of maintenance. Carpets need regular vacuuming and occasional deep cleaning to stay fresh and allergen-free. LVT and laminate floors, on the other hand, are easier to clean so they’re a great choice if you want to keep maintenance to a minimum.


The climate in your area can actually influence your flooring choice. If you live somewhere that gets cold in the winter, carpet can provide much-needed warmth, while in warmer regions, cool surfaces help keep the bedroom comfortable.


Budget is a critical factor when choosing flooring. It’s important to balance your budget with the desired quality and longevity of the flooring material you select.


For those with allergies, hypoallergenic flooring options are essential. Hard surfaces like laminate, vinyl and LVT tiles don’t trap dust and allergens like carpets do, making them better choices for allergy sufferers.


By considering your personal preferences and lifestyle needs, you can choose a flooring option that not only enhances the beauty of your bedroom but also provides a cosy atmosphere. Ultimately, the right flooring will transform your bedroom into a perfect sanctuary for rest and relaxation, tailored to your individual taste and requirements.
