Allergy friendly floors for your bedroom

Hardwood is both practical and beautiful in this bedroom.
If you suffer from indoor allergies, you want to avoid having wall-to-wall carpet in your bedroom. Carpet traps common allergens such as mold, mildew and dust. However, carpet is undeniably the top choice in bedroom floors. It can be hard to consider what other flooring options might be available. Indianapolis flooring store, Kermans, has a few suggestions to consider.

The benefits of a hard surface floor

Hard surface surface floors are really the best choice for allergy sufferers: tile, hardwood, or luxury vinyl are all great choices for those with allergies:
  • Easy to clean and keep dust-free. You'll know if the floor needs dusting because you'll be able to see the dust.
  • No fibers to trap dust, dust mites, mold spores or other allergy triggers.
  • Long-lasting so you won't need to replace it as often as carpet. While carpet typically lasts 15 years or more, those with allergies often need to replace it more often.
Aside from those practical benefits, hard surface floors are so versatile that you can find one to match any decor. Luxury vinyl and porcelain tile in particular are fun options because manufacturers continue to get more and more creative with the look of that top layer. These floors look and feel so much like wood or even fabric that it can be hard to tell what they are made from!
Light hardwood with an area rug opens up this bedroom while keeping a touch of softness.

Add a touch of softness 

People tend to shy away from hard surface floors in the bedroom because they aren't comfortable underfoot and tend to be noisier than carpet. We have the perfect solution: area rugs. Area rugs carry many of the benefits of carpet - they quiet a room, feel soft under your bare feet, and give you a warmer floor. However, area rugs are easier to clean and air out.
