Best Winter Flooring Options

The temperature is getting cooler, and the winter season is approaching. That also means that the holidays are upcoming, and you will likely have more people than usual in your home. For this reason, it’s the perfect time to take a good look at your home’s flooring and consider how you would like it to look for guests. If that maroon shag carpet from 1978 is still in your home’s basement, it may be time to consider giving yourself a little gift. In this article, we’ll discuss the best winter flooring options. Whether you’re looking for warmth, durability, or style, Vonderheide Floor Coverings has the widest selection to choose from.

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, and you don’t wish to replace it, you can warm up floors and tie together a space by utilizing area rugs. Area rugs are a great addition to most rooms because they can bring a pop of color and keep your feet warm on cold winter days. We have different size options for every room, and you can even use multiple to create interesting texture and color. 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 for a warmer option, 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. While carpet provides a plush surface for cold feet during the winter season, hardwood floors provide a relatively unchanging 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 to your flooring.


During the holidays, many people visit your home. If you’re looking for a more durable option this year that will withstand kids and spills, laminate or luxury vinyl may be the best option for you. These two options are very easy to care for, and they won’t hurt your wallet as much as actual hardwood or tile flooring will. 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.
