Renovating your flooring to match seasons that change from extreme cold to extreme heat can get expensive. With the changes of temperatures in Edmonton throughout the day, let alone the year, homeowners are now looking for flooring materials that keep the house warm during winter and provide a cooling touch during the summer. Many flooring options are durable and functional throughout the seasons and maintain the style of your home’s aesthetic. Read on to discover flooring options that suit all weather.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Extreme weather conditions can cause the flooring to expand or contract, which causes homeowners to renovate their flooring every few years. Luxury vinyl tile or vinyl plank is not affected by extreme cold or hot weather changes. It also warms up quickly throughout the winter and does not trap heat during the summer breeze.

Laminate Flooring

With a layer of insulated cork or foam, laminate flooring is also an excellent option for cold weather. The insulating layer underneath the flooring will allow your floors to warm up in no time. During the warm summer months, laminate flooring does not trap dust and pollen, eliminating the oppressive feeling in the already warm room.

Engineered Hardwood

If you’re looking for flooring that mimics the natural look of hardwood floors, then engineered hardwood is the best choice for you. Not only does it keep your home warm and cozy during the winter, but it also provides a cool touch to the feet during the warmer months.

How To Decide On What Flooring To Choose?

The most crucial factor that helps you determine what type of flooring to choose is your space. If the area you’re going to refurbish is going to be exposed to snow, dirt, grime or even moisture, then you should consider luxury vinyl tiles, planks or laminate flooring. If you’re looking to add sophistication and design to your living room, for example, then hardwood flooring would be perfect for you. For those looking for that sophistication but on a tighter budget, then laminate flooring or engineered hardwood would give the same effect at a more affordable price.
