Hardwood floors are stylish and can be quite expensive, so proper maintenance is essential if you want to keep scratches and wear down to a minimum. If possible, you should
avoid wearing shoes on hardwood flooring, especially high heels, which function like tiny hammers to cause dents in the floor. Plus, hardwood floors are also not the coziest. Especially in the colder months, you might crave the warmth of a pair of slippers. That’s why you need a pair (or two) of the best house slippers for hardwood floors to keep your feet comfortable and your floors looking great for years to come.
When deciding on a pair, opt for soft soles or rubber-based slippers. These cause the least amount of wear on wood and provide just the right amount of grip to prevent sliding since hardwood floors are also slipperier than carpet.
Those with higher arches and foot soreness will likely prefer models with insoles that contour to provide support to your aching feet. If you just like that spongy, walking on a cloud feeling, memory foam is a great option, too. You might also prefer a warmer material like soft faux fur, suede, or fleece lining during the cooler months.
