Floors To Keep You Warm This Winter

With the temperatures falling into the single digits, thick socks and extra blankets aren’t always enough to keep your family comfortable. Luckily there are several flooring options that do double duty when it comes to keeping you warm without sacrificing style. 

Check out these recommended flooring options for colder temperatures:

Carpet

Perhaps the most common choice to combat the winter chill — carpet is one of the warmest flooring types with its comfortable cushion and natural insulation. Yet as hardwood has become an increasingly popular choice among homeowners, many are opting for area rugs as an alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting. 

Cork

For those craving the sleekness of a hard surface but want the comfort of carpet — cork provides a natural insulation that can not only reduce your heating bills, but also help to redirect heat back into the room. Additionally, it is warm to the touch and soft underfoot. 

Hardwood

Hardwood is a classic and elegant upgrade to your home. And while it isn’t as warm as cork, it is indeed warmer than stone, ceramic and other hard surfaces. Just remember — with the possibility of snow and slush, it is always important to avoid tracking wet shoes or boots onto your hardwoods. This could lead to scratches or accidental moisture damage. 

Vinyl

Vinyl flooring is another reasonably warm option that is friendly on the budget yet tough against snow boots. This moisture resistant and durable surface comes in a variety of styles that will be easy to care for, and easy on the eyes for many winters to come

Be sure to speak to one of our Experts to ensure you choose the right flooring for your needs.

Making The Most Of Your Home Office 

These days, many of us have a hard time separating work from home, and often spend more hours in our home office than our bedrooms. This is why a comfortable and inspiring home office space has become an integral part of the modern home. 

Of course an ideal office space will prioritize functionality and productivity, but another important factor is the personalization of the space. A successful office will reflect your personality — whether it is playful and exciting, or serious and professional. 

Regardless if your work hours are spent in a spacious home office, or a corner nook in the hallway — as an entrepreneur, homework helper, freelancer, or telecommuter, your office needs to work for you. But where to begin?

 

Plan ahead

As with any room design, it’s important to have a plan to keep things organized. This will give the project a sense of direction and provide you with the end-result you desire. Consider the type of work you’ll be doing, whom you’ll be doing it with, and identify what is needed to make operations run smoothly. 

 

Look down

Lawyer? Painter? Personal Trainer? Different jobs call for different flooring requirements, so it’s an important decision when reimagining your space. Think about your daily activities, along with your budget and maintenance needs. A Rite Rug Flooring Expert will be happy to discuss these considerations with you in order to select the best design option for your office. 

 

Finesse your furnishings

The pièce de résistance of any space is in the furnishings. It’s imperative that you equip your office with proper furniture, supplies, and technology to simplify your daily workload. Never underestimate the benefits of strong lumbar support, good lighting, and a lush plant. 

Think about ergonomics, and remember that a comfortable space will boost your productivity and heighten your overall performance for years to come.
