Best Winter Flooring Options

The temperature is getting cooler, and the winter season is approaching. That means the holidays are coming, and you will have more people in your home. For this reason, it’s the perfect time to take a look at your home’s flooring and how you would like it to look for guests. If that maroon carpet from 1978 is still in your basement, it may be time to trash it. In this article, we’ll discuss the best winter flooring options. Whether you’re looking for warmth, durability, or style, we have the widest selection.

Add an Area Rug

If you’re looking for a floor that brings warmth into your space, there are a few options. If you already have existing hardwood or vinyl, you can warm up floors and tie together a space with area rugs. Area rugs are a great addition because they bring a pop of color and keep your feet warm. We have different size options for every room, and you can even use multiple to create interesting design. This is a great way to make your home a bit more luxurious for the holiday season as well.


When you’re looking to replace your flooring, carpet or hardwood flooring is your best option. While carpet is the natural choice as it is made of soft, warm material, hardwood flooring can also be a great winter option. Carpet provides a plush surface for cold feet, but hardwood floors provide a surface that can be covered with an area rug as well for added warmth. While boards do expand and contract as the seasons change, they are unlikely to cause any damage.


During the holidays, many people visit your home. If you’re looking for a more durable option that withstands kids and spills, try laminate or luxury vinyl. These two options are easy to care for, and they won’t hurt your wallet as much as actual hardwood or tile flooring. At Vonderheide’s, our luxury vinyl flooring has technologically improved from what you may think of as vinyl flooring. With our embossing process, we can make any luxury vinyl look like a natural stone, ceramic, or wood floor, with knots and whorls. Plus, you’ll save money with this option as it is cheaper, more durable, and still looks great. If you need durable flooring, vinyl or laminate should be at the top of your list.

When you need a stylish, new option to update your home, check out the Vonderheide Floor Coverings carpet outlet. We have one of downstate’s largest flooring showrooms, and we are happy to work with you to find the best carpet options for your home. Not only will a new carpet flooring option give your home an updated look, but it will add warmth and value to the home.

An updated floor covering, especially in homes that you plan to sell soon, can add great value. Think personal style, but also think resale. Remember, neutrals are best if you are selling a home soon. However, there are always options to jazz it up for gatherings. Try an area rug, furniture that pops with color, or an accent wall that brings the room together. New carpet flooring can really bring your home back to life, and it’s fun to show off to friends and relatives you only see once a year.
