Try floor rugs to improve your insulation.
If your home has tiled or timber flooring, throwing some cosy rugs down acts as energy-saving thermal insulation. Thanks to the pile fibres trapping warm air, the insulation value of rugs and carpet be up to 10 times higher than that of hard floor covering.
In addition, since they act as a barrier between the cold floor and your feet, rugs will reduce heat loss through the floor while being toasty on your toes. Furthermore, rugs or carpet can help to absorb sound and reduce noise levels in your home, making it a quieter and more comfortable living space; plus, they add plenty of personality to your home.
