Best Flooring for Cold Winters Ahead

Heating your home has never been at a more high-cost level than it is in 2022, and many people have been dreading the winter coming in with the high prices on heating costs against the cost of living crisis. It should not be so expensive to heat your home and keep you and your family cosy. The good news is that there are options that can be implemented to keep your home insulated and warm without shelling out a fortune. The best flooring options to keep this reality low in cost is luxury vinyl flooring.

Why is Vinyl the Best Solution?

As we have covered in many blogs previously, luxury vinyl flooring brands – such as Karndean Click vinyl flooring and Invictus – are a cost-effective alternative to real hardwoods, carpets and laminate flooring choices.

They look great, they feel great, and they install easily – it is the perfect product for homes looking for style over expense. As well as being fully protected against water, stains, scratches and rising temperatures, vinyl flooring can fit in absolutely any room you would want without complication.

The real big benefit that comes with vinyl flooring is that it acts as a great insulator – making it able to withstand large amounts of heat generated and a perfect layer for the current craze in homes.

Underfloor Heating Systems

Underfloor heating systems have become a necessary feature in many homes throughout the UK, working to reduce carbon emissions from boilers whilst battling high energy prices and freezing temperatures.

Unfortunately not every floor is perfectly suited for covering an underfloor heating system and getting the full benefit. Luxury vinyl flooring however is a solution that not only can withstand the rising daily temperatures of such a system, it even perfectly insulates the heat within the home.

Not only that, it makes underfloor heating possible within any room of the house – including the bathroom!

Bathroom Heating?

As luxury vinyl flooring is 100% waterproof in its design, it perfectly protects your subfloor from any form of moisture that could ruin your floor. If your subfloor can be fully protected against water risk, your underfloor heating potential is fully maximised also.

Imagine stepping out of a hot shower and being greeted with a warm tile instead of a cold floor. Not only does that provide a great feeling, but it can provide a great look also – with vinyl tiles able to perfectly replicate porcelain or stone and not provide the coldness they come with.

If you are planning on underfloor heating for your home, check out the best flooring options of luxury vinyl flooring from Floorbay to gain the benefit of warmth for your home for less.
