Question DetailsAsked on 4/28/2014

Is laminate flooring in a bedroom a good economical choice since it won't see too much wear and tear?

Buying a new home that has terrible carpeting in the master bedroom. I want to tear it up and have contractors put in hard wood/laminate floors. Since the bedroom doesn't see much foot traffic, aesthetics aside, is laminate a good logically economically choice?

Laminate is good for all but heavy wear, too - generally better than anything but tile and stone and concrete, in the better brands.

It is not as often used in bedrooms because it is commonly (though not always) more expensive than carpet, and most people do not like padding around barefoot on cold feeling and hard floor surfaces, so a very high percentage of bedrooms and halls leading to hall bathrooms are carpeted for that reason. Or use hardwood floor and then put down area rugs or runners for the cold feet issue - which sort of makes little sense as you are paying for two floor coverings for the same area.
