Flooring is a very important aspect to any room and not just for the obvious reasons. Flooring has the ability to pull together the walls, furniture and decor of a room to make the room feel complete. The flooring that you choose says a lot about you and the feel that you are trying to create. Laminate flooring comes in many different colours. Choosing the colours with care can lead you to a bedroom that is comfortable, homey and the perfect place for your most intimate moments.

  1. 1

    Consider the amount of foot traffic you will get. Laminate flooring can get discoloured, scratched and chipped with a lot of foot traffic. While there are different levels of hardness for laminate flooring that can be recommended for different traffic areas, there are also different colours that can be recommended for different amounts of foot traffic. The good news is that since the bedroom sees less foot traffic than a hallway or an entrance way, you will have more choices. BuildDirect says that for high foot traffic areas you should use a darker colour of floor laminate to better hide dirt and scratches. For places like the bedroom you can get away with lighter colour laminate because of less foot traffic. But you can also choose to use a dark colour it it suits the look you are going for.

  2. 2

    Choose a colour that complements the furniture and the wall colour. According to BuildDirect, if you have dark furniture, a medium-coloured laminate such as a cherry colour will work well to complement the furniture and the atmosphere you are striving to create. However, if you have furniture and walls in light or neutral colours, then a lighter, tan laminate colour will work better with your room.

  3. 3

    Select a colour that pulls the room together. Laminate flooring can really pull your entire bedroom together to give it the style and feel that you are trying to create. The Laminate Flooring Co. says that dark colour choices in laminate flooring can give your bedroom a stately, elegant feel. For this look, try a dark mahogany or a forest black colour. Medium shades of laminate flooring colours can give your bedroom a casual, country feel. Examples of colours for this look would be a chestnut or a shade of American cherry. Light shades of laminate like natural or classic oak can bring out a contemporary feel.
