Give me that warm feeling

I've been really getting into looking at different flooring options for the new house, wondering what we'll be able to afford with the flooring allowance we budgeted for the new house.

Ideally, we will do some sort of tile and hardwood combination for the main floor and leave it carpeted upstairs. However, I haven't been feeling to great about the idea of cold floors in the winter and have been reasearching ideas to warm it up, since I can't really afford to do in-floor heating options.

One thing that I came across in my travels in LEATHER FLOORING!!! I love the idea of this!! I still get the smooth surface that's easier to clean than carpet, but I am thinking that the hide would be amazing underfoot!!! My only concern is how well it would hold up in a high-traffic area.

Anyone have any experience with this??

I don't have any experience with it, but it does look lovely. I wonder how it would stand up to moisture though?

That was one of my concerns... I would think this would not be ideal for a front entrance, especially here in Canada....
