Area rugs are a great place to start. Some types of rugs are incredibly plush and luxurious and this can help your family and guests feel warmer during the Michigan winter season. We have a great blog post about choosing the best area rug HERE.
Aside from adding a layer to your flooring, we also suggest adding a layer to your window treatments. Sometimes, a heavier fabric can help block out those cold drafts that can make your wood floors feel like ice. Some of our clients also invest in the draft-stoppers that lay at the base of their entry doors and sliders.
If you find that you spend a lot of time in one area and it seems to always be chilly, you might want to look into a high-quality space heater. Always make sure space heaters are at least 3 feet from anything that can burn. They’re a great little addition to a cozy reading nook or a home office. Pair that with a great set of slippers and your wood floors will feel warm and welcoming in no time.
We hope these suggestions help you find ways to make your home feel warmer during the chilly Michigan winter season. If you have any questions or need help picking the best rug for your family room, contact a local interior designer.
