Ask Bob & Betsy: Is Laminate Flooring Good for Bedrooms?

Dear Bob and Betsy,
I’m trying to decide what kind of flooring to put in my bedroom. Is laminate flooring good for bedrooms? Or should I use hardwood or carpet instead?
– Samantha B.

Dear Samantha,

This is an important consideration to make. The flooring you put in your bedroom will have a major impact on the look, feel, and comfort level of the space. Although carpet is often seen in master bedrooms, it is not always the best type of flooring for the space.

Here are the top 4 reasons to add laminate to your home:

1. It’s Easier To Clean

Laminate flooring is harder to stain than carpet. If you have pets, you can easily clean the hair and dirt they will inevitably drag in with them to your bedroom. With carpet, it can get caught in the hairs making it harder to clean too. Spills, hair, and dust are easy to clean up with water and a cloth or mop when you have laminate flooring.

2. Perfect Conditions for Laminate

Bedrooms are perhaps the best room in your home to use laminate flooring because they are the least prone to moisture. Unlike kitchens and bathrooms, where water is used often, it is rare that you need to bring water into your bedroom. If you do spill a glass of water, you can easily wipe it up without doing any harm to your flooring.

3. It’s Scratch Resistant

Laminate flooring is also scratch resistant. When you walk on it in your heels, it is less likely to get scratched or damaged. Also, when your dog’s nails scrape across it as he runs to wake you up in the morning, you won’t have to worry about him scratching your floors.

4. It’s DIY Friendly

If you plan to redo each of the bedrooms in your home, you have a lot of floor space that needs to be covered. With carpet or hardwood, you will probably need to hire a professional to install your flooring. This can cost you quite a bit of money. With laminate flooring, you can easily install it on your own. We offer guides here on our website that show you how to install laminate flooring so you can see first-hand what it takes.

No matter what you decide, it is important that you find the right flooring for your taste and style. We encourage you to browse through Bestlaminate’s variety of laminate flooring styles so you can get a better idea of the type of colors, shapes, and patterns available to you.

  1. Thanks for asking your question! It is not possible to combine two different types of laminate flooring because you would be working with 2 different locking mechanisms that would not interlock with each other. If you did want to use 2 different laminate floors within your home, you could do so by room and use transition pieces in between.
