Rhode Island is a typical northeastern state in that the weather is highly varied. Most of the state enjoys four distinct seasons with moderate and cold winters. Because of the varied climate homeowners are free to choose from many flooring products including tile, stone, hardwood and carpet. If you are concerned about winter weather and moisture being tracked into your home invest in a sturdy tile or natural stone floor that will not only withstand a lot of moisture but will also be easy to clean. Another good option for cold climates is cork because it absorbs heat and stays warm underfoot. Cork is made of tiny air filled molecules that absorb heat, making it a natural insulator.
There are plenty of different styles of homes throughout Rhode Island, but perhaps one of the most notable are the coastal homes. Located on the eastern half of the state, coastal homes are located along the water and typically feature tile floors because they can withstand the moisture brought in from the water. Beyond the beautiful and stylish architecture lie some of the oldest homes in the country including Quaker meeting houses and churches from the earliest settlers filled with brick and natural hardwood.
