Many homes in areas with colder climates look to carpeting as their choice of flooring but as lovely as plush carpets can be, they are not very hypoallergenic. Carpets inevitably get old and if not cared for correctly can harbor mold, mildew, and other allergens. So, what are some other great options that can keep you warm through the cold? We have some great flooring options that can not only retain warmth but will also give your home a stylish and modern flair.
Granite/Slate – The material is great conductors of heat and not fragile to cold temperatures and climates. Granite and slate are typically used on the outdoors but are even more durable indoors. Even better when installed with an underfloor heating system.
Hardwood – Look greats and is affordable. While wood doesn't store heat, it also doesn't get as cold as other flooring materials.
Natural Stone – Durable, looks great, easy to keep clean, and with proper heating techniques, can be great in colder weather.
Laminate – Laminate flooring can stay warm when indoors and without an underfloor heating system. Lower cost and durability make this option an excellent choice for cold weather.
Porcelain– Available in many different style and textures. Great for outdoor use in colder and frost-prone climates due to less moisture absorption and is both chip and scratch resistant.
