Eucalyptus is the most widely planted and one of the fastest-growing hardwoods, which makes it an environmentally and budget-friendly flooring choice without cutting back on style. In this modern bedroom designed by Troy Beasley, the dark eucalyptus flooring creates a stark contrast against the white and bright yellow furnishings, creating a calm, elegant ambiance.

The smooth surface of concrete flooring enhances any design style and emits a polished look. Its stain- and dust-resistance and nontoxicity make it great for families with pets and people with allergies. Pangaea Interior Design carried the sleek, concrete look to the walls and ceiling for a unified look in this contemporary bedroom. Exposed piping gives the space a true loft style, and radiant heated flooring is a simple way to keep your toes warm during winter while saving on your energy bill.
If you live in a warm climate, choosing tile for your bedroom floor will keep you cool. Easy installation and cleaning make it a low-maintenance floor, and you can simply change the look by painting it. Designers Thom Oppelt and Lori Venners chose neutral-toned, hexagonal tiles to give this bedroom a distinct Old World design style.
Wool Silk Rug
Designer Andreea Avram Rusu placed a wool silk rug in this contemporary bedroom to bring comfort to the vibrant space. Silk adds a radiant touch to the rug, while wool gives it durability against stains and everyday wear. The rug's muted color anchors the bold bedding and accessories.
Koa wood originates from one of the oldest tree species in America, which makes it one of the finest and most expensive hardwood flooring options. Its moderately heavy, stable nature makes it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas. Designer Christopher J. Grubb mirrored the floor's wood grain in the door frames, art niches and ceiling cutout, and used it as inspiration to design this resort-style bedroom complete with collectibles from around the world.
Clay tile flooring traditionally fills Mediterranean-style homes, but it collaborates with various design styles. It isn't as cold on the feet as standard tiles, and it's durable yet softer to the touch. Once sealed, these tiles are bacteria-, allergen- and water-resistant, which gives your sleeping quarters a clean environment. Photo Courtesy of InterHall
Shag rugs complement any floor type and bring a whimsical, youthful look to the bedroom. The soft, plush texture is inviting and comfortable yet has a contemporary vibe. The thick material insulates the floor, keeping it warm during winter and cool during summer. Design by Ron Nowfel
The mere beauty of travertine tile flooring is reason enough to incorporate it into your bedroom design. The aesthetic appeal and durability make it a versatile flooring option for any room. HGTV fan Jpipes61 chose travertine flooring for his bedroom to add a one-of-a-kind, rustic elegance that can't be duplicated with any other natural material.
Two-Toned Wood Flooring

Stained masonite tile flooring resembles old leather as it wears, which accommodates a busy area. Designer Antonio Ballatore installed the tile using washers and screws and coordinated it with an entire wall made of lumber to accomplish an intimate, modern, Craftsman-style bedroom.
Add a captivating yet comforting look to your bedroom with plush carpeting. Its softness eliminates the need for a carpet pad, and it can be treated to be soil- and stain-resistant. Design by Andreas Charalambous
