UK winters can be harsh on our homes, especially for roofing, pipework and flooring. When it comes to floors it’s important to install a durable material that can withstand extreme cold and temperatures that will likely fluctuate.
At Frank’s, we have the best range of flooring to guarantee warm winters in your home. Whether you experience mild or harsh winters where you live, we’re sure to have suitable materials to create some cosy surfaces in your property.
So what are the best options to keep your house feeling toasty and warm when the cold temperatures hit? Let’s take a look!
If you are able to stretch your budget a little higher to make a real investment in winter flooring, we recommend LVT for the job.
When combined with high quality underlay, LVT is probably the best option to keep your house snuggly. With thick underlay, vinyl plank floors are well-insulated and offer a warm feeling underfoot.
It is also suitable to install in combination with underfloor heating, should you want to add this modern feature to your home to keep your property well-heated.
What’s more, LVT is water resistant so you needn’t worry about wet feet traipsing through the house and causing damage to your floors. It is also resistant to stains and fading and is low maintenance compared to other types of flooring.
Laminate is another fantastic winter flooring option, especially for homes that are exposed to extreme winter weather conditions.
This flooring type is available with an attached pad for extra warmth but can also be installed with underlay for further thickness and insulation.
As well as being warm underfoot, laminate flooring is easy to install, budget friendly and extremely durable in a high traffic home. At Frank’s, laminate is available in various designs, colours and thicknesses to suit your home and personal taste.
A classic choice for a toasty underfoot feeling when you step out of bed in the morning, carpet is a firm favourite for many households up and down the UK.
Available in a huge variety of fibres as well as pile types and thicknesses, pop down to your local Frank’s today and pick out your perfect winter carpet.
Engineered hardwood flooring
One of the toastiest winter flooring options on the market is engineered hardwood.
In comparison to solid hardwood, engineered hardwood is more stable in high and low humidity environments. Unlike solid hardwood, it won’t shrink or expand and cause structural issues over time such as buckling and warping.
Instead, hardwood that is engineered is manufactured with several layers of bonded wood that can withstand extremely cold climates and low temperatures.
Pop down to your local Frank’s and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect warm winter flooring for your home.
