Many homeowners in the Charleston, Mountain Pleasant, and the Lowcountry areas prefer to sink their feet into plush carpet when they wake up in the morning. Carpet certainly has its perks, but is not the only option for a comfortable and attractive bedroom. If you’re looking to change it up a bit, consider differentiating your bedroom with one of these flooring options.

Charleston Bedroom Flooring


Beautiful and versatile, hardwood gives your bedroom a more sophisticated vibe. Recreate the coziness of bedroom carpet with cozy rugs. One of the biggest benefits of adding hardwood to your bedrooms is that it significantly ups the value of your home.


On the hunt for an eco-friendly alternative to hardwood? Bamboo could be a fantastic option. Like hardwood, bamboo is a highly versatile material. Natural bamboo is perfect for bedrooms with a rustic feel, while carbonization allows for a greater range of darker, more elegant hues.


Like bamboo, cork flooring is famously eco-friendly. Its springy feel and high shock absorbency lends it an additional element of comfort. Cork holds warmth well and is therefore a nice option if you’re concerned about cold feet when you hop out of bed in the morning. A natural noise absorber, cork is perfect for promoting a quiet, serene bedroom.

Ceramic Tile

Who says ceramic tile is reserved solely for bathrooms? It’s attractive, easy to clean, and perfect for high-moisture environments. It’s a particularly wise option for children’s bedrooms or any other high-traffic areas where durability factors heavily into your decision. Make your bedroom floor more comfortable on cold winter days by installing electric heating mats. Opt for larger tiles, as they make your bedroom look more like a place to relax, and less like your spare bathroom.

Stone Tile

Stone tile may be an unconventional bedroom option, but given its natural beauty and minimal maintenance requirements, it’s easy to see why it’s quickly growing in popularity. Pair with softer hues to keep your bedroom from looking too severe. A naturally rough surface such as slate is preferable if you’re worrying about slipping.

Whether you prioritize elegance, eco-friendliness, or durability, you can find everything you want in non-carpet bedroom flooring. Think carefully about what you want most in a bedroom, and don’t be afraid to choose an unconventional flooring material and style.
