What are the best Flooring Choices for your Guest Bedroom in 2020?
When it comes to having a guest come and stay, keeping the house clean, fresh and eye-catching is key. For any flooring concern, it is important to decorate and furnish the guest room into something unique and bespoke – a place to call a home during their stay.
We have put together a list of the best flooring options that are killing it in 2020! You will want these for your Guest Bedroom.
Hardwood is always a favourite choice for homeowners in the countryside, but noise is a big downside when it comes to upstairs hardwood. Simply put, the sound of footsteps on your hardwood can be loud, and this is a big nuisance to folks hanging out downstairs. There’s nothing worse than guessing what the guest might be up to up there – ‘have they found the cluttered and rammed cupboard filled with all the Christmas presents’, ‘why are they wearing shoes upstairs?’.
One solution is to choose a softer wood, such as pine, which will do a better job at deadening footfalls. Another solution is to step outside the hardwood bubble and consider some other great flooring options.
Laminate flooring is a great choice for your guest room because it is not as noisy as hardwood. To get maximum peace and quiet from your laminate flooring, make sure you have a padded underlay installed to absorb as much noise as possible. Also, laminate flooring is a perfect solution to absorb the most heat – especially, during the colder and winter months of the year. Some have options of style and colour, so if you wanted a Hardwood aesthetic but didn’t want the loud noise when someone walks in.
If you have Children, then this flooring is the right one for you as it is also great to keep clean. Dirty Football boots? No problem.
Eco-Friendly in 2020: ‘Cork Flooring’
If you’re passionate about the planet or a desired Vegan, then Cork Flooring is another great choice for you. Cork naturally retains heat so it is pleasantly warm to the touch: great for bare toes in the bedroom. Cork is also quite springy and it is incredibly good at absorbing noise. One downside to cork is that it can be easily dented. That said, guest rooms typically see less foot-traffic than downstairs, so the softness of cork isn’t as much of a problem for this part of your home.
If you’re wanting your guest to have comfort during their stay, then carpet has it all – unless they’re a smoker, then make sure you ban the use of cigarettes. Of all the available flooring options, carpet with a padded underlay will probably do the best job at preventing noise transfer in your local home. Carpeting is also warm underfoot, and high-pile styles are very comfortable to walk on barefoot. A quality carpet floor will create a plush and relaxing bedroom environment.
