Why Vinyl Flooring is a Great Choice for the Bedroom

Whilst it may not be the first flooring option that comes to mind when it comes to the bedroom, we are here to tell you that vinyl flooring is a great choice for creating a stylish and comfortable sleep haven. And why, you may be asking? Well, read on and you will learn the thoughts of the expert team here at Modern Living.

The look of real wood without the upkeep

In years gone by, real hardwood flooring would be one of the only choices when it came to flooring for the bedroom. And whilst times have changed and other flooring options have become available, the look of wood still can’t be beaten. Yes, carpet has its place but wood provides a stylish look that can effortlessly pair perfectly with both traditional and contemporary bedroom styles.

The problem with real wood is definitely the upkeep. To ensure real wood flooring is kept in optimum condition, there is a lot of maintenance involved. We’re talking about daily sweeping, keeping it out of direct sunlight, avoiding using steam mops, sanding, staining, and generally just praying that it doesn’t get scratched.

Of course, there is then also the cost of real wood flooring…it’s expensive.

With all of the above in mind, it’s little wonder we recommend vinyl flooring as a suitable alternative. Vinyl flooring comes in a range of wood effects which look the real deal. At Modern Living, we offer finishes such as Parish Oak, Silver Ash, Silvered Oak, White Oak, Chapel Oak, Dry Cedar and Dusky Walnut, to name just a few.

A low-maintenance alternative

It would be an understatement to say that vinyl flooring is a low-maintenance alternative to hardwood flooring. Compared to this and carpet, it’s almost a no-maintenance alternative.

At Modern Living, we offer vinyl flooring products that are 100% waterproof and will see liquid remaining on the floor surface. Due to this, you won’t have to worry about any liquid spillages as they will be easily wiped away.

In addition to being waterproof, our vinyl flooring solutions are also resistant to mildew and stains. They are also extremely resilient, so they won’t dent or scratch easily and can withstand a great deal of wear and tear, making them ideal for a high-traffic area like the bedroom.

The illusion of a bigger room

Offering up one of those tricks of the eye, vinyl flooring can make your bedroom look bigger. This is no bad thing in a room which will often be filled with furniture such as wardrobes, chest of drawers, bedside tables, dressing tables etc. in addition to a bed.

To achieve this illusion, we recommend doing the following with your vinyl flooring:

  • Choosing vinyl flooring in a darker colour – think the Chapel Oak and Dusky Walnut finishes we offer from Amtico, and the Ebony finish we offer from Luvanto
  • Choosing bigger planks or tiles – opt for our flooring options with larger dimensions (such as our White Oak Flooring from Harmony Flooring, which has plank dimensions of 1220 x 230) and you will be able to achieve a look which prevents your room from looking cramped
  • Avoid busy patterns – heavily patterned carpets can cause a room to look like there’s too much going on, causing it to look smaller. As our vinyl flooring options come in natural finishes, this won’t be an issue
  • Install vinyl flooring using a herringbone effect – rather than simply placing your vinyl floor planks or tiles in a horizontal or vertical position, arrange them in a pattern that resembles the bones of the fish and you will be able to achieve the illusion of a bigger room

Compatibility with underfloor heating

Offering a comfortable and contemporary solution, the vinyl flooring ranges we offer at Modern Living are suitable for use with underfloor heating systems up to a maximum temperature of 27℃. This is a great benefit for the bedroom in those colder winter months and those times you find yourself walking barefoot.

Even without an underfloor heating system, you will find we have vinyl flooring solutions that offer great thermal properties. This is thanks to our solutions with integrated underlay that offer heat insulation and a warm, cushioned feeling underfoot. Again, a welcome feeling for the times when you are barefoot.

Ease of installation

All of the vinyl flooring solutions we offer at Modern Living have been designed by the manufacturers to be incredibly easy to install by DIYers and professionals, alike. For instance, the solutions we offer from Harmony Flooring feature an innovative and easy-to-use locking system, making installation a breeze.
