When it comes to creating a bedroom that feels cosy and inviting, there are so many ideas and design styles you could try, but one that will always work best is incorporating wood. Whether you like the striking colour of oak or the contrast between light and dark planks laid together, bringing this natural element into your space is guaranteed to make you feel calm and in touch with nature.
We’ll provide ideas and inspiration for incorporating wood elements into your bedroom décor, from wooden flooring, furniture, accent walls, headboards, and decorative pieces to create a warm and inviting ambience.
The most obvious place to start incorporating wood into your bedroom design is with your flooring – wood is a classic choice in any style of home, and there are so many different colours, shades, and styles to work with that you can make wooden flooring work for any style you love.
And nowadays, you don’t have to fear the high cost of installing solid wood floors – laminate and engineered wood flooring are the better-protected options that could last you for many years without having to sand, wax or polish them. With so many options to choose from, how will you pick which flooring suits your bedroom style best? Here are our suggestions for styles you can choose.
Light and pale wooden floors are a fantastic option for neutral-coloured spaces, and a great choice for your bedroom, where you want to feel calm and relaxed. Lighter flooring also works well in a bedroom because it can require more regular cleaning than darker flooring, and bedrooms tend to be less busy than living rooms and kitchens for example. Here are some ideas for how you can incorporate light wood floors in your bedroom:
Darker wooden floors can seem like quite a traditional style, especially in older homes where they are paired with smaller rooms and sometimes even panelled walls in the same colour in particularly grand homes. However, dark wood can provide a rich backdrop to any type of space and works with lots of different styles you might like.
Most of the time when we think of wooden flooring, we think of varying shades of brown, but grey wooden flooring is also a great option for your bedroom. Some grey wooden flooring comes naturally in this pale shade, from wood types like Blue Mahoe and Siberian Larch. You can also get the effect of these naturally grey woods with our grey luxury vinyl floor tiles, whether you like a darker slate tone or a light birch colour.
Bringing wood into your bedroom doesn’t just need to come from classic wood flooring – wooden walls are a timeless feature that can come in so many different styles! Here are just some ways you can use wood on your walls to bring some interest to your bedroom:
