The bedroom is a place of retreat. A sanctuary from daily life for some, an entertainment centre for others, or a place for snuggle time (with or without the kids). It’s the one room in the house you can politely close the door to any and all intrusions. Perhaps that’s why the bedroom attracts quite a bit of attention when it comes to remodelling. The truth is that attractive bedrooms are major selling points for home buyers.

While everything from the wall colour, to window treatments and closet space are important in a bedroom layout, one debated element is flooring. Because bedrooms are an intimate space, the right flooring needs to be both comfortable and aesthetically appealing.

Here’s a guide to picking the right flooring for your bedroom.
