Are you counting down the days until summer is over? Are you impatiently waiting for the season to take a cooler bend? Beat the heat with a smart flooring remodel! Floor Coverings International® of Farmingdale has compiled our top choices for floors that will keep your Dix Hills home cool.
Marble Tile Flooring
Marble is a beautiful, elegant flooring option that will keep the temperature in your home down. Though it’s one of the more expensive options, marble brings an unbeatable sense of luxury and will add resale value to your home. Marble also has excellent thermal conductivity, which is why it feels cooler to the touch than hardwood. All natural stone tile has some degree of thermal conductivity, but few perform better than marble. Even in direct sunlight, this flooring will stay cool. For added luxury, marble is also an excellent flooring to install a radiant heating system underneath, for cold winter days.
Ceramic and Porcelain Tile Flooring
Ceramic and porcelain are durable, versatile, and visually appealing. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, ceramic and porcelain will stay cool in the summer. These tiles can be crafted to mimic the appearance of expensive marble at a far lower cost.
Hardwood flooring is a classic, sought-after flooring option for your home. The natural beauty of hardwood is hard to beat. Hardwood will also help keep you cool in the summer. This durable flooring option will stay significantly cooler than carpet. For an extra edge of temperature control, go with a light shade of hardwood flooring. Lighter flooring will absorb less heat than a darker option. A blonde hardwood could be a stunning option for your home.
Laminate flooring is a budget-friendly alternative to hardwood. Able to mimic the look of various hardwood species, laminate is also capable of keeping your home cool. This durable flooring won’t absorb heat. Laminate requires no special care or maintenance, which also makes it a low-maintenance option for your home.
