Why hardwood floors look so great in bedroom design

14 Nov, 2018

Hardwood has been chosen as a flooring option in bedroom design for centuries already, but have you ever wondered why it is so loved and appreciated?

Wood + bedroom is a great combination for many reasons. Let’s find out what they are the main ones together!

Hardwood is a material that can really last for decades. Good quality wood is often rather pricey but it can be seen as a smart investment for the future for multiple reasons:

– If treated in the right way, with the caution and attention it deserves, it can last for an entire lifetime. This means that you won’t need to replace or re-install your floor if you don’t want it, saving a lot of money and time compared to cheaper and less durable materials.

– Hardwood bedrooms are classic and they are still seen as a luxury, therefore adding this kind of flooring to your room will increase the value of it, in case you are planning to sell your house anytime soon – Or even in a long-term future perspective.

– Wood is an extremely versatile material, that can go well with any interior style, type of house and color palette.

The choices of wood you can use are infinite and all of them express that feeling of comfort and peace that only natural beauty can offer.

Because of this, if you are one of those people that like to change interior decoration frequently, wooden floors are the choice for you.

Wooden materials allow you to completely renovate your room without having to worry about changing the flooring according to the new style you have decided to approach – Which would save a lot of your budget for some other changes you might want to do.

Interior styles come and go, as well as your taste. A good quality hardwood floor can accompany you throughout the years, as you change ideas on how you want your bedroom to look.

Additionally, wood is warmer than any other texture in many ways:

You not only get a more welcoming feeling by entering in a wooden bedroom rather than in a marble one, but also you need to think that the bedroom is that one room we often walk around barefoot –And it is not a very nice feeling to walk on something cold, right?

Given that your bedroom is your safe place, away from everything and everyone, it definitely has to be decorated in a way that gives you a pleasant feeling, that can warm your heart up every time you enter there.

You might think at this point “Carpets are also a good option if I want to walk barefoot around my room!”… 

This is true, but have you ever noticed all the dust that gets caught in your rug?

Unlikely wood, that is very easy to clean, we can’t really say the same about carpets. Cleaning products and vacuum cleaners are not 100% effective and this can be a big downside of carpets.

Hardwood floors, on the contrary, are hypoallergenic, and they are also recommended by the American Lung Association as the flooring type that best helps preserving  good quality of the air.

After all, the bedroom is that one place in which we really need to breathe without any troubles and without the risk of incurring into allergies or other issues. We mainly go there only to sleep, an an healthy sleep time is essential for both our body and mind.

Hardwood is most commonly applied in floors, but have you ever thought that it can be used to cover other surfaces of your room, such as, for example, walls and even ceilings?

For this kind of surfaces, light hardwood is generally suggested over darker types, as it keeps the ambiance warm but fresh at the same time, and it does not result too overwhelming.

If you think a whole wooden wall could be too much for you, you can still decide to split the same surface by utilizing two different materials and textures.

If you decide to opt for this second idea, it is suggested to place the wooden portion of the wall right behind your bed. In this way, the wooden part can perform as a fascinating and natural focal point.

We talked about how good do hardwood floors look particularly bedroom design, but the truth is that this kind of material looks amazing in most of your house’s rooms – Even the bathroom!

If you want to keep the same material for the whole house, hardwood is one of the very few textures that would allow you to do so, by perfectly fitting in the style of every room and giving more consistency and coherence to your interior.

Still in doubt of what kind of wood would suit your decor taste the most? Have a look here to get more bedroom design inspiration.
