Winter is here, Wisconsin, and baby, it’s cold outside! At Quest Interiors, we know that it takes a lot to prevent the cold from coming inside, too. That’s why we’re recommending you think about flooring that will keep you and your loved ones warm all winter long. Check out our top choices for Wisconsin winter flooring, and let us know your favorite.

How to Pick the Best Flooring for Wisconsin Winters


Like Forrest Gump once said, carpet flooring and winter go together like peas and carrots. At least, that’s what we think he should have said. Carpet flooring is a must for winter because it serves as the perfect barrier between cold floors and your feet. If you’re worried about having to clean snow and dirt off your carpet floors, you can always compromise with a combination of carpet and harder flooring, like tile or vinyl, that will keep the moisture away from your plush floors.


We know, tile flooring seems counterintuitive when you think about winter, but there’s a solution that will change your mind: heated floors. Tile flooring comes in a variety of shapes and styles, and it can be paired with a heating system under the tiles that are perfect for chilly bathroom floors. Tile floors are admittedly much easier to clean than carpet, making it an excellent contender for easy snow cleanup during our Wisconsin winters.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring combines the softness of carpet with the durability of tile. On the one hand, vinyl flooring warms up much faster than hardwood or tile floors and it doesn’t expand or contract in extreme temperatures. It’s also possible to pair vinyl flooring with radiant heating so you can still experience the warmth of heated floors all winter long.


If environmental friendliness is at the top of your list this winter, try some cork flooring. A natural insulator, cork reduces the static shock that so often accompanies carpet and is mold and mildew resistant, making it an excellent choice for families with allergies.


Do you want the look and feel of natural wood without the staggering price points? Try laminate flooring this winter instead. Laminate and vinyl flooring share a number of insulation properties, so you can trust that your feet will be comfortable all winter long. Like vinyl floors, you can also put down a layer of cork or foam under your floors to help with insulation and keep everything warm through the winter.
