New research from wood floor experts Woodpecker Flooring shows searches across Pinterest for ‘Wooden Flooring Bedroom’ recently peaked at an all-time high.
Darwyn Ker, Managing Director of family-run Woodpecker Flooring, said:
“Comfort and relaxation in the bedroom is key, as it’s the place where you start and end your day. Bedroom flooring can define the entire ambiance of the space, so it is no surprise that interest in wooden flooring in the bedroom is soaring.”
Wood flooring offers a timeless, classic aesthetic that is easy to clean and complements a wealth of interior styles, making it an ideal choice for the bedroom. And given that a bedroom can also double as a dressing room or even a home office, creating a relaxing sanctuary is imperative.
Darwyn added: “Your bedroom should be a haven, a space in which to unwind. Opting for flooring that is beautiful, healthy and yet requires minimal maintenance is a must.”
Woodpecker Flooring’s range of solid hardwood, engineered and wood design boards are all suitable for use in the bedroom. Here Darwyn selects his pick of boards which are perfect for the bedroom.
Woodpecker is a family-run business with a heritage in the timber industry that goes back three generations.
Founded nearly 50 years ago by Bruce Ker, a skilled craftsman who loved teaching people how to work with wood, the Woodpecker tradition is continued today by his son Nelson and grandson Darwyn. Since the very beginning, Woodpecker have been passionate about designing and sourcing the finest wooden floors.
Their dedication starts in the forest. Woodpecker only use responsibly sourced wood with full FSC® or PEFC certifications, selecting the trees before they are felled and paying close attention to how they are sawn, stacked and dried.
The dry wood is then kilned twice for maximum stability before being machined. Centuries-old hand-finishing techniques – such as lacquering, oiling and antiquing the wood – further enhance its natural beauty. It’s fair to say, nobody knows or cares more about wood than Woodpecker. Headquartered in Caerphilly, Woodpecker currently offer over 60 flooring options in real wood, engineered wood and bamboo which retails online and at nationwide stockists.
