Tile Bedroom Floors: Affordable Elegance
Tile bedroom floors are an up-and-coming design trend. Wood-look, mosaic or soothing monochrome, tile is easy to clean, hypoallergenic and adaptable to any style. Popular in southern Europe, Asia and our warmer states, it goes well in any climate with the addition of a few scatter rugs.
Tile flooring is affordable, too. It’s comparable in price to carpet, especially when you shop around and use Home Depot coupon codes, or buy online from a discounter like FloorMall.com. Estimates range from $4-12 per square foot, compared with $6 to $15 for wood, $2 to $15 for carpet, and $8 to $50 for natural stone, according to the World Floor Covering Association. This installation calculator can give you a tile flooring cost estimate for your area.
These looks, gleaned from tile bedroom flooring around the world, serve as the inspiration for this cool new bedroom design trend.
