Choosing Flooring for Your Guest Room

The guest room in your home is unlike any other room in your home.  Usually this room will go unused for many days at a time, but when guests are arriving, it’s important to have this room in tiptop shape. To create the ultimate guest room, you’ve got to start with the right flooring. Here are some tips from the Poulin Design Center in Albuquerque to help you select the perfect flooring for your guest room.

Hardwood Flooring

Add some serious style to your guest bedroom with some solid hardwood flooring or engineered hardwood flooring.  Installing bright ash flooring will open up the guest room and make it a bright and inviting place for guests to stay. Another perk of hardwood flooring is the hypoallergenic qualities it offers.  Allergy sufferers will rest easy if you choose hardwood flooring for your guest room!


The go-to choice for many homeowners is carpeting when it comes to most bedrooms including the guest room.  It can work quite well for a guest room as well!  Feel free to branch out from your normal nylon carpeting and go for luxurious wool carpeting that will wow your guest with a soft, cushy feel underfoot. Plush carpeting will also help to insulate your guestroom during the winter months as well.

Area Rugs

Having trouble deciding if you want classic hardwood the warmth of carpeting?  Luckily you don’t have to choose!  Installing solid hardwood flooring and adding in an area rug will give you soft texture you desire.  Area rugs are also wonderful in that you can easily change up the décor of your guest room by changing the area rug.

The best place to start with any flooring decision is a free consultation with a professional at the Poulin Design Center.  We’ll show you flooring samples so you can choose the prefect new carpet or hardwood flooring for your guest room!
