With winter on the way in the Pittsburgh, Wexford, Cranberry area, it’s time to think about creating a cozy haven inside your home. At Floor Coverings International Pittsburgh, we know a great place to start is with your flooring. You might be surprised how much of a difference a warm flooring material can make in a space. You should also know that we’re not just talking about carpet (although that’s always a good option). Check out our favorite warm flooring options below:


Cork Flooring


Cork is made from the bark of a cork oak tree. This eco-friendly flooring has become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to its durability and softness. Another great thing about cork is that its cellular composition allows heat to be held inside it. This makes it a very warm flooring option that helps keep heat inside your home.


Luxury Vinyl Tile


If you love the look of natural stone tile but want something that stays a bit warmer on cold nights, luxury vinyl tile might be perfect for your Pittsburgh home. This durable flooring comes in a wide range of designs. You can choose one that almost perfectly imitates ceramic tile, stone tile or even solid hardwood. The vinyl that makes up the largest part of each tile holds in heat much more than natural stone.



Ok, we had to say it. Everyone loves carpet for its insulating abilities. It’s soft underfoot and provides insulation that both keeps heat in and deadens sound. If you want something that’s especially cozy we recommend plush, cut pile carpet. These carpets are more susceptible to crushing and show marks from footsteps, but they are extremely soft, and will definitely feel great on your feet when you step out of bed on a cold winter morning.
