When waking up in the morning, the last thing you want to experience is a cold floor beneath your feet. Whether you wear slippers or not, the chill can take you by surprise and leave you eager to jump back into bed. You might assume that the only way to fix this problem is to install carpet or add a rug, but different flooring options are designed to keep you and your home warmer during the winter months. If you’re interested in a possible remodel, keep reading to determine which three options are best.

Keep Your Feet Warm with Laminate

If you want an insulated floor that looks like natural hardwood, you can’t go wrong with laminate. Snow, ice, dirt, mud, and other outdoor elements may be a concern no matter what type of flooring you choose; however, with laminate, you can rest easily because of its scratch-resistant, easy-to-maintain material.

When working with a professional to discuss the type of laminate you prefer, you can opt for an added layer of insulation to give your feet extra comfort when walking throughout your home.

Control the Chill with Carpet

The first type of flooring that most often comes to mind when discussing the cold winter months is carpet. Offering a more lush and comfortable approach, you cannot deny the luxurious feel you get when walking around your house.

Of course, with carpet comes the worry of mud and dirt being tracked in by dirty shoes and paws. Fortunately, there are options available that are stain-resistant and highly durable. Also, carpet is one of the most insulated choices when selecting flooring for your home. Not only does it retain warmer air for longer periods of time, but if you opt for a thicker fiber, your feet will remain encompassed for greater comfort.

Find Greater Comfort with Engineered Hardwood

If hardwood is what you prefer to be throughout your home, it’s best to opt for engineered hardwood as opposed to its solid counterpart. The reason is that the former retains its shape better than real wood floors.

It’s also resistant to moisture and extreme temperatures, so you’re less likely to experience damage to your floors than if you were to lay real hardwood.

If your home is already well-insulated, you can expect that engineered hardwood will complement it well as it is a natural insulator in itself.

Don’t let another winter go by without making sure your home is equipped with the right flooring. Choosing the right material will help to keep you and your loved ones comfortable and warm while you wait for warmer temperatures.
