Warm Flooring Options for the Winter Season
The winter season is synonymous with the holidays, decorations, multiple layers of clothing, and of course, cold temperatures. During this time, you may find it difficult to get out of bed in the morning or venture to different rooms. This is especially true when the floors in your home are cold to the touch. Sure, socks or slippers could do the trick, but wouldn’t it be nice to be able to walk barefoot as you please? Keep your feet cozy this winter! Learn about the different flooring options available with DUNCAN Flooring Specialist.
Carpet is a material that insulates naturally, which is why it is one of the most popular types of flooring. To make the thermal properties even stronger, carpet cushion can be installed underneath the carpet. Thicker fibers and closer weaving tend to provide more warmth. This flooring material comes in various styles, colors and fiber types.
Luxury vinyl plank is another option when considering flooring for the winter season. While it doesn’t have insulating properties on its own, a layer of cushion or cork padding underneath can make it a comfortable temperature. This type of flooring is soft and easy to maintain. Different sizes are available as well as natural colors. The professionals at DUNCAN Flooring Specialist can help you make an informed choice for your vinyl selection.
Cork eco-friendly, sustainable, warm and comfortable! The material comes from the bark of cork oak trees which can be harvested multiple times. The air-filled chambers inside of the cork cause it to reduce/absorb noise as well as keep rooms insulated. You can purchase cork in either tile or planks. It comes in a variety of styles, colors, patterns and sizes. It is often used as an underlayment for other types of flooring.
Yes, hardwood flooring is still considered one of the warmer options. It stays warmer if your home is well insulated. Hardwood flooring lasts for a long time because it is able to be restored and refinished. High-quality hardwood flooring can make a room stand out with its great range of wood grain, color, texture, stain and finish.
Tile on its own is very cold and not ideal when the outdoor temperature is dropping. But if your heart is set on having tile in your home, there is a way to warm it up! You can opt for an electric, programmable floor warming system if you don’t already have embedded radiant heat or hot water baseboard heating. Tile flooring is very durable, easy to maintain and is available in a wide selection of colors, shapes and sizes.
