Fall is coming, and winter will be right on its heels. Instead of getting stuck with cold floors and chilly rooms, let the experts at Floor Coverings International® of Waukesha warm your home both physically and mentally with some fall flooring upgrades. Here are some considerations to help you prepare for the colder months ahead.a cozy neutral tone bedroom with carpet floors and area rug


Carpet pile traps air and insulates your home from cold, and if it’s on the upper floor, can help keep heat in bottom floor rooms. It’s comfortable enough to sprawl out on, so family game night will be comfy and pleasant for all. Plus, carpet is soft and plush underfoot- a relief at the end of a long day. We have many carpet options to suit any home.

Hardwood in Dark Colors

Hardwood flooring is a timeless addition to any home. Hardwood floors are a durable, flexible option for homeowners looking to warm up a room. Whether in a bedroom, hallway, or common area, hardwood floors imply warmth. Choose a red or brown hardwood to create coziness and depth.

Throw Rugs and Area Rugs

In addition to tying a room together, area rugs add a layer of insulation to your home. Super plush and shag throw rugs act like blankets for the room and feel great under cold toes in the morning and tired treads at night. Area rugs can also be used to cover up cool tile or unfinished basement floors and protect your feet from the chill.

Cork Flooring

Cork flooring is an eco-friendly natural flooring option that sometimes doesn’t get enough attention. Although many associate cork with bottles or bulletin boards, it’s also a durable flooring option for your home. Soft and dense, cork is a natural insulator against both sound and temperature. Keep your home warm and quiet with this comfortable hardwood alternative.

Create Cozy Chambers

Sometimes, the atmosphere of the room can have a greater effect on our perception than the experience of the room. Austere white spaces have their place in the home, but they often create a sterile, chilly effect. Utilizing oversized furniture, plush rugs and blankets, and warm colors in the décor can simulate warmth in an otherwise cold room.
