    "Laminate flooring is an excellent choice for flooring in cold climates, especially if you want a product that looks like natural wood. It also has similar insulation properties to vinyl flooring, so you can have a comfortable place for your feet to walk without being too cold. Applying an insulating layer of foam or cork underneath your floors will help them stay even warmer."

    "Hi, to gain this benefit you would need an insulating material, the best for this would be a thick dense carpet. However, this would not be suitable for the kitchen. Therefore something like a laminate or LVT might be best suited to your needs as they are insulating and spill-resistant."

    "Most Hard Flooring is affected by room temperature or even the ground temperature from underneath, so does fluctuate quite a lot.

    I would say carpet is the least likely to change temperatures in any room. If you have a good quality underlay this can help keep the warmth in and cold out also."
