Traditionally, bedrooms have been outfitted with wall-to-wall carpeting. Carpets are warm and soft underfoot, making them ideal for a space dedicated to restful slumber. Here are three other flooring types that would work well in your bedroom:
Loop Pile Carpeting
Yes, it is technically carpet, but loop pile is very different than the typical cut pile carpet you find in most Atlanta bedrooms. Loop pile carpeting is made by threading yarn in and out of a backing material. This results in thousands of loops. When the loops are cut, you get cut pile. Leave the loops intact, and you get loop pile. Read more about their differences in one of our earlier blog posts.
Cut pile is more common because it is softer and more comfortable. However, for bedroom floors that will receive more wear and tear, such as a child’s room, loop pile is a durable and long-lasting option.
Many Atlanta homeowners are surprised to learn that the same material used to keep wine in its bottle makes for excellent flooring. Cork is soft and bouncy—great for walking on with bare feet. It is also a great insulator, so it’s sure to help control your heating and cooling bills.
Hardwood may not be the most comfortable flooring, but its strength and versatility make it a great option for any room of the house—including bedrooms! Hardwood adds value to your home; so many Atlanta families choose hardwood with the future in mind. It also comes in a vast variety of styles, species, and finishes. The toughest part about choosing this flooring option is narrowing it down to just one hardwood.
