What Is Defined As The Main Bedroom?

Before we dive into flooring options for the main bedroom, we wanted to explore what defines the main bedroom. The main bedroom is usually the largest bedroom in the home that is occupied by the head or heads of the household. It may also have an attached bathroom which is important to consider when choosing flooring.  This bedroom is also sometimes referred to as the primary bedroom, master bedroom, or owner’s suite. It often has lower foot traffic than other areas of the home, so while durability is still important, factors like aesthetic, design, and comfort are often top of mind when choosing flooring for the bedroom. Take our Flooring Genius Quiz to help you narrow down your flooring search.

Carpet for the Main Bedroom

Carpet is a common choice for the bedroom because it provides a plush comfort underfoot, reduces noise, and makes the bedroom cozy. It is also an economical option. A major drawback to carpet is how difficult it is to keep clean. There are options for stain-resistant carpeting, but overall, spills and messes are not easily removed from carpet. It also harbors allergens that can exacerbate symptoms for allergy sufferers.  An alternative would be an area rug.

Hardwood Flooring for the Main Bedroom

Hardwood flooring is a beautiful and classic choice, because it adds warmth, value, and character to a room. It is highly regarded by real-estate professionals as one of the best flooring options for resale value and desirability. It is durable and collects less dust and allergens than wall-to-wall carpet. It is also environmentally friendly.

There are even waterproof hardwood floors, which are great for the main bedroom as they can be carried through to the bathroom. Raintree Flooring’s Aspen Estate Collection, a gorgeous waterproof European white oak flooring, is a popular choice for the main bedroom. Incorporating an area rug to hardwood can provide comfort underfoot, noise reduction, and add color and design.

Tile Flooring in the Main Bedroom

Tile flooring is commonly regarded as a durable flooring option. It is waterproof and stain-resistant, which makes it great for high traffic areas. For bedrooms, it can be a bit cold and hard. There are options to add underfloor heating to keep tile warm, which is commonly done in bathrooms. Whether tile flooring will be the best choice for your bedroom will depend on the climate you live in and your style. If you live in a warmer climate, tile flooring may be a great option, but if you experience colder weather or prefer to step onto a warm and cushioned floor in the morning, tile may not be the best choice. 

Luxury Vinyl Flooring in the Main Bedroom

If you love the look of tile, but prefer something more cushioned, luxury vinyl flooring is a great option. It is durable, economical, and stylish. Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring can also be used in the bedroom and bathroom, which allows you to run the same flooring throughout the bedroom and en suite. Luxury vinyl flooring is quick and easy to install and clean. You can choose either a luxury vinyl plank that mimics a wood flooring or luxury vinyl tile which resembles ceramic or porcelain tile.

Laminate Flooring in the Main Bedroom

If you desire the look and feel of hardwood or tile, but you want something more economical, laminate flooring is a good choice for the bedroom. It is scratch and water-resistant, easy to clean, and easy to install. White laminate flooring is on trend in the main bedroom as it provides a minimalist design that feels bright and airy. Adding a bohemian area rug on top of white laminate flooring is a great way to add comfort and plush underfoot, while also incorporating a fun design element to your decor.
