As Autumn sets in, with the colors changing and leaves falling, coziness in the home becomes a crucial aspect of your life! One of the most comfortable and warm feelings can be a beautiful home in the fall. There are countless ways to help decorate your home for autumn surrounding your hardwood floors. Hardwood often adds unmeasurable depth and warmth to your home; let’s see how effective decorating techniques amplify this!
1. Rugs, rugs, rugs!
The timeless, cozy addition of rugs to your hardwood floors is truly timeless. Nothing quite adds such a depth of hominess as the classic combo! As the weather starts to cool, we recommend adding a rug to living spaces with hardwood floors. The plushness and softness of area rugs allow an open space to feel more cohesive and inviting. This helps the whole family and visitors feel at peace and warm as they relax in the home. A rug in an open space is a simple way to incorporate autumnal themes into your house!
2. Add elements of nature
Adding small bits of nature helps amplify your beautiful hardwood floors. A few examples include:
- A fall wreath
- Some miniature pumpkins
- Logs for the fireplace
- Autumn centerpieces
- Festive, warm-toned flowers
Each decoration is simple and inexpensive yet ties in a wonderful aspect of the changing weather outside. Bringing in these pieces will help your home feel endlessly cozy and don’t distract from the charm of your hardwood; instead, they highlight the floors!
3. Keep plenty of blankets around the house
With the cooling weather, blankets are an autumn staple! Keep plenty of options around that can complement your floors well; the fall is a fantastic time for incorporating warm colors such as red, yellow, and orange, which often work well with hardwood. With added warmth and comfort from the blankets, other aspects of your home will also begin to feel cozier! Autumn is the perfect time to nuzzle up with a warm blanket and relax with the family.
4. Focus on ambient and natural lighting
If you’re like me, fall is one of your favorite seasons! There is something so unique that makes you feel so safe and welcome with autumn, one of those aspects being the wonderful sunlight! As the days begin to shorten, take advantage of as much sunlight as possible. Open windows allow for the perfect, cozy fall feeling letting the warm, natural lighting flow into your home. When natural lighting isn’t practical, focus on ambient lighting from lamps, twinkle lights, etc. Fall is a perfect time to allow warm, soft lighting to take over and add a natural glow to your whole house.
5. Freshen up your floors
Your floors play a significant role in the overall feeling of your home. When your hardwood feels dull and lifeless, so does the rest of your house. No one wants a bland fall season!
