Hardwood floors are a classic choice for bedrooms, as they add both beauty and value to a home. In a master bedroom suite, hardwood can be used throughout the entire space, including the bathroom. Wood is also a good choice for kids' bedrooms, because the floor will age with your child and isn't likely to need replacement. In the guest bedroom, a beautiful wood floor can make your guests feel like they are staying at a bed and breakfast.

In addition to oak and other traditional hardwoods, many homeowners are now choosing bamboo and eucalyptus for their durability, sustainability and affordability. If luxury is what you're after, a Brazilian koa wood floor is both beautiful and extremely durable; however, it's among the most costly wood floors available.

Many homeowners choose carpet for their master bedrooms. You can have wall-to-wall carpet installed, or choose a large carpet with bound edges that will let some of the underlying floor show around the perimeter of your room. Carpet provides both warmth and noise absorption, and it can make a large room feel cozy. You can choose from a wide range of colors in either a loop or cut weave. If you're considering wall-to-wall carpeting, a reputable dealer can help you determine which type of carpeting is best for your room, depending on your tastes, traffic level and budget. You can choose from several synthetic fibers, or select a natural wool or silk for a touch of luxury.

Tile may not be a type of bedroom flooring you've considered, but it's worth taking a look at. Whether or not it's right for your bedroom depends on your decorating style and the climate in which you live. If you live in a warm climate and like a Mediterranean style of decorating, tile may work for you. There are many choices, from ceramic to travertine, and you can carry the same tile throughout your suite, including the bathroom. Tile is also a good choice in children's rooms, because it is tough and easy to clean.

Concrete is a very durable floor for any room in the house, including the master bedroom. But concrete takes on color and a polished sheen very well, and it's a good choice for warm climates and more modern styles of decorating. It is also durable and low-maintenance, making it a good choice for kids' bedrooms.

If you choose a hard surface for your flooring, you may want to add an area rug under your bed. As an alternative, consider placing smaller rugs on either side of the bed to give your feet a warm place to land on cold winter mornings.
