Forparquet thebedroomis a kind of natural habitat. Which room in the home is better suited to the cosy, comfortable, intimate, tranquil mood that parquet creates?
But are you sure that parquet is the right solution for your bedroom floor? Natural wood is rather delicate, but porcelain stoneware parquet is an excellent alternative. The flooring you want for your bedroom is in wood-effect porcelain stoneware, if you are looking for a parquet that is:
Hard-wearing andtough, even child-proof.
Hygienicand allergy-proof, while carpets and upholstery are the perfect receptacles for dust mites, pollen and animal hairs.
Easy to clean and easy to manage because it does not need any particular routine care.
Wood-look porcelain stoneware has an appearance of the highest quality: thanks to the very high resolution digital printing technology used on the tiles, it offers an accurate, natural reproduction of the colours, vein patterns and shaping marks of wood - and even its flaws or the marks left by time on its surface.
What's more, every wood-look stoneware collection is different: here we have chosen 5 of them to give you an idea of the variety of possible options for the best floor tiles for your bedroom.
Oak-effect stoneware bedroom parquet
The wood-effect stoneware tiles of the Woodspace collection by Ragno are inspired by oak wood, with all its vein patterning, stippling and knots.
You will find it in both thebest-selling 20x120 cm and the 25x150 cm sizes. From lightest to darkest, the Woodspace colour assortment comprises 4 evergreen shades: Bianco, Beige, Tortora and Marrone.
Salvaged wood-look stoneware bedroom parquet
Also in the 20x120 cm and 25x150 mc sizes together with the unusual 19x150 cm, Ragno presents the just-out Woodsense collection, a stoneware inspired by salvaged wood boards. The collection's timeworn surfaces feature sharp variations in colour and marks left by time, recalling all the beauty of antique wood. Woodsense is available in 4 colour variations, 2 warm shades - Beige and Marrone - and two cold - Avorio and Grigio.
Wood-effect stoneware bedroom flooring with mix and match tiles
With wood-look stoneware, you can combine several tile sizes to give variety to your bedroom parquet. So, for example, the10 and 13x100 cm planks in the Woodreal wood-effect collection can be installed - together - in a grid with continuous joints, in a running bond pattern with staggered joints, or in the ever-popular herringbonelayout.
Woodreal offers wood-look stoneware planks in 5 warm shades: Bianco, Beige, Caramello, Tortora and Marrone.
Wood-effect stoneware bedroom parquet with small plank tiles
A wood-look porcelain stonewareparquet can be even more versatile if the tiles are of smaller size, midway between a block and a plank. You can use this size for the floors of even small bedrooms, or try out more unusual installation patterns, such a diagonal installation or herringbone, on your bedroom floor.
The Ragno Woodglam wood-effect porcelain stoneware collection, for example, offers you rectangular tiles of 10x70 cm inspired by oak and with shade variation – meaning with differences in tone between planks – in the Naturale, Tortora, Noce and Grigio colours.
Wood-effect stoneware bedroom flooring with shade variation
The 10x70 cm planks of the Woodcraft wood-effect porcelain stoneware collection have an even higher degree of shade variation, which creates very distinctive effects in the finished bedroom floor.
Woodcraft's unusual colouring effects give a great deal of personality to bedroom parquetand are very noticeable both in the 2 warm colours – Beige and Marrone – and in the 3 more contemporary colours:Bianco, Grigio and Antracite.
