We’re just weeks away from the start of the coldest months of the season, and every little thing that you can do on your part to keep your home warm (without going overboard on the heating bill!) will be a huge help. One thing to consider is the kind of flooring in your home- while the aesthetics come down to a matter of personal taste, you can’t ignore the practical benefits of certain types of flooring, particularly when it comes to energy efficiency. So what type of flooring will be the best for winter warmth? Read on to find out!
If you live in a cold area, or simply want to makeover your home for optimum winter warmth, consider having carpeting installed. Carpeting, unlike certain kinds of tile flooring, is very effective at absorbing heat in the fibers and keeping your home insulated. This means that you do not have to run the heat 24/7 for every day of winter in order to keep your house at a comfortable temperature!
Tricks for Warmth Without Carpeting
If you have your heart set on hardwood or tile flooring as opposed to carpeting, you can still keep your home warm without breaking the bank. Consider using a few area rugs to help add to the insulation during the winter months; these smaller pieces of carpeting can still have a warming effect without requiring the full-on commitment of a flooring remodel. Area rugs also give you the opportunity to give your home a mini-makeover! A custom area rug from Jim Boyd’s Flooring America can really switch up the look of a room, if only until the sun comes out again!
