Laminate Flooring: How to Combat the Cold


Your laminate flooring does not have to feel cold this winter. Read on for some tips on how to beat the chill.


Laminate flooring is popular with parents because it is so easy to keep clean, but many people do question how to keep it from feeling chilly, especially if they have small ones walking and crawling around.

Even if you do not have children, you do not want your feet to freeze every time you wander around your home this winter. The good news is that there are plenty of things you can do to combat the cold and keep your floors looking and feeling great throughout the colder months.

Underfloor Heating
Laminate flooring is compatible with underfloor heating, and this is the most effective way of completely banishing cold feet this winter. It can be installed in living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms or bathrooms — or throughout your home for complete cosiness.

Think about whether you want to invest in underfloor heating before having your floor installed, as it will be a more expensive and complicated operation after it has already been laid. Also consider the cost of running your heating system at a time when energy prices are booming. If your bank manager says yes, it is the perfect solution for combating the cold.

Keep the Thermostat On
If you have not got underfloor heating, try to maintain a constant temperature in your property. Your whole home will feel consistently warmer if you keep your heating on a little over a long period of time rather than waiting until it is freezing and then turning your thermostat and gas fire up to high.

Rugs laid over your flooring will immediately make your rooms feel warmer and will offer added comfort underfoot. You can use large area rugs for bigger living spaces and runners in hallways and on landings. If you do have children to think about, consider rugs that can be washed in your machine, and always make sure to minimise the slipping and tripping risk. It is a good idea to use rug grips to secure rugs to your laminate flooring, making moving floor covers a thing of the past.

Now you know how easy it is to keep laminate flooring from feeling cold, you may be considering having more installed throughout your home or replacing worn-out carpets or vinyl. If so, browse the extensive Flooring Village online range for a host of great ideas.
