If you are hosting a holiday party this year, you may be stressed about properly preparing your Brookfield home for the festivities. Updating your flooring can completely transform your home, making it easy to feel prepped for the holidays. At Floor Coverings International Waukesha we want you to enjoy the season. Here are our top flooring picks for hosting during the holidays.


With its beautiful and classic style, hardwood flooring is the perfect option for your Brookfield home. Hardwood flooring is incredibly long lasting, meaning that it will look as stunning at this year’s Thanksgiving dinner as it will 20 years down the line. We love hardwood flooring and we know you will, too.

If you’re worried about scuffs and scratches, we can help you pick a hardwood floor with a high Janka rating. Hardwood is low-maintenance and easy to clean. Instead of worrying about flooring upkeep this holiday season, you can spend your time relaxing with family.

Advancements in technology have made laminate flooring a great alternative to hardwood floors. The layers of laminate make it durable and low-maintenance. If you’re hosting during the holidays, you won’t need to worry about your laminate floor getting damaged. Instead, you can spend your time topping off drinks and socializing.

Laminate has some clear advantages over hardwood floors. No matter what the design, all laminate floors are resistant to dings and scratches. Plus, they are more budget-friendly than hardwood. If you’re looking for a beautiful, affordable flooring option during this holiday season, laminate is the right choice for you.

Brookfield homeowners love the layers of warmth and comfort that carpet can add to a home. During the colder months, it’s easy to see why carpet is considered a flooring staple. If you’re hosting during the holidays, you may worry that your new carpet will be stained before New Years. While you should avoid installing carpet in areas where food is made, it can still be a great option for your living room.

At Floor Coverings International Waukesha, we stock many varieties of stain-resistant carpet. We can help you pick out a low-maintenance style, like frieze, which will hide any stray traces of dirt. You can host during the holidays and still enjoy the comfort of carpet.
