With temperatures regularly sinking below freezing, it can be difficult to stay warm in the middle of a Minnesota winter. At Floor Coverings International Dakota County we know that the wrong flooring can make your home feel frigid. We want to make prepping for the winter easy. Here are the top flooring styles to keep your St. Paul home cozy.


If you are looking for a simple way to keep your home warm and comfortable year-round, look no farther than carpet flooring. Its insulating quality is one of many reasons why we think carpet is great for any St. Paul home. Our design experts can help you pick out the best carpet for each area of your home. In high-traffic areas, consider installing a durable style, like frieze or Berber. In low-traffic areas, consider installing a plush style, like saxony or wool.

Are you worried that you will be sacrificing style for comfort when you install carpet? Our experts can help you use carpet as a design tool. In the middle of a chilly St. Paul winter, you will be grateful for the cozy comfort of carpet.

Area Rugs

If you are looking for a simple way to add warmth to your current flooring style, then consider installing an area rug. They work well with any floor, from hardwood to luxury vinyl tile. Besides helping to keep your home warm, an area rug will help define space in your home. It will frame seating in your living room and add detail to your bedroom.

We love area rugs because they can bring a complete new element of design to your home. A sisal rug can bring in a rustic style, while a plush carpet can bring in a layer of comfort. We stock a wide variety of area rugs and can help you pick out the perfect one any room of your St. Paul home.
