For a number of reasons, hardwood flooring is thought of as mostly belonging in the living room or the entryway. The floor can be somewhat expensive, it requires some upkeep, and it might not be the softest surface. When you get out of bed, you might want a soft, warm carpet instead of hardwood. However, hardwood flooring has begun to proliferate in bedrooms. Why is that?
The first consideration for hardwood flooring in your bedroom is the aesthetic appeal. Hardwood flooring is a great-looking addition to any room. It matches pretty much any design scheme. A clear-grade, glossy finish hardwood floor could look great with a simple and modern design scheme. A rustic-grade hardwood floor could look great with a rustic design scheme.
Beyond just aesthetics, hardwood flooring can actually improve the quality of sleep for some people. Carpet, being a fibrous material, collects dust and other materials. When you walk around on the carpet, you disturb the fibers. The dust will once again become airborne and can be breathed in while you’re walking around or asleep. That dust could contain allergens. Hardwood floor is easier to clean, in that respect.
Cleaning Your Bedroom
Hardwood flooring has migrated to bedrooms as people have less time to clean. Other types of flooring require more intensive cleaning. Hardwood flooring is one of the easiest surfaces to clean. You need to sweep it from time to time. To deep clean it, you can mop it with a mild detergent and water. You just need to make sure you dry it quickly. Moisture is the enemy of hardwood floors.
You will likely want to sell your home at some point in the future. Hardwood flooring will raise the value of your home. Most people find that their hardwood floors increase the value of their homes far beyond the expense of the flooring. That’s because many prospective home buyers don’t want to go through the hassle of buying and installing hardwood floor. They’ll pay extra just to have it already installed.
For these reasons, as well as several that are specific to each home buyer, hardwood floors are growing in popularity. Specifically, they’re growing in popularity for use in bedrooms. If you want to have hardwood installed in your bedroom, you should consult with a professional flooring installer about new trends in hardwood flooring. There are many exciting trends that are changing the way people think about their floors.
