Bedroom flooring: why natural is the way to go

While choosing kitchen or bathroom flooring requires some careful thinking about the risk of splashes and staining, with bedroom flooring, practicality is less of an issue. Comfort, texture and the overall look of the finished floor are what matters – opening up a whole world of design possibilities. 

Synthetic carpet is one option, of course, but with the texture trend still going strong, today’s interiors are all about tactile, statement fabrics. With attractive weave options that embrace rustic, chunky boucle designs, classic tweeds and sophisticated striped and herringbone patterns, our sisal, coir and seagrass carpets really come into their own in the bedroom, offering bags of natural charm and an organic look that synthetic carpets simply can’t match. They’re particularly well suited to the country or coastal cottage look, injecting instant warmth and cosiness into even the starkest of spaces. If you’re happy with restful honey and wheat shades, seagrass and coir will deliver on all fronts, but sisal – which absorbs dye well – comes in a diverse range of gorgeous, inviting tones, from darkest grey and bronze through to cream and silver(pictured).

If eco credentials are a concern when choosing bedroom flooring, you can sleep easy. The manufacturing process for all our natural floorcoverings is completely sustainable, and with the products being fully biodegradable, disposing of them won’t contribute to global warming or pollution. And then there’s the allergy factor. If you or anyone in your family is affected by chemical sensitivities, synthetic carpets, and the volatile organic compounds they release, are a no-no. Our chemical-free pure new wool carpet, on the other hand, is entirely allergy free and has passed independent tests to prove it; click here to find out more. It has a low carbon footprint, with all the wool sourced from Cumbrian farms close to the factory, and with its unbelievably soft, sumptuous texture and strikingly beautiful look, it will add a touch of luxe to any bedroom scheme – without costing the earth.
