Choosing vinyl floors for a bedroom
Vinyl flooring is a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms due to its high resistance to moisture. However, it has several characteristics, which make it an equally great flooring choice for bedrooms. Vinyl is durable, warm underfoot, sound-absorbing, easy to clean and install and they come in a wide range of designs and colours. They look and feel great, and best of all, vinyl floors are relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to alternative bedroom flooring options such as hardwood and engineered wood flooring.
At Tarkett, our luxury vinyl tile (LVT) designs are focussed on perfectly reproducing the look and feel of wood, while our vinyl roll offers a much broader range of design, colour and style options including graphic designs and effects. So whether you want the look of beautiful, warm oak hardwood flooring, or a bright and patterned contemporary-look, vinyl offers almost unlimited design potential to recreate any of your bedroom flooring ideas.

Drawbacks of vinyl flooring in bedrooms
Cons of using vinyl flooring in bedrooms
• Difficult to repair
Dragging heavy bedroom furniture across the floor could result in deep scratches or tears. If this does happen, it's challenging to make spot repairs, and in most cases, the entire bedroom floor would need to be ripped out and replaced.
To reduce the risk of damage, we recommend our Starfloor Click luxury vinyl tile collections. Thanks to the Extreme protection treatment, they’re exceptionally durable and the flooring requires minimal maintenance.
