DIY: Fall Warm Up For Your Floors

Ilove hardwood, stone and tile floors. But, in the winter, they aren’t exactly warm and cozy for your feet. I always love stripes, so when I saw all these rugs with various combinations of stripes, I fell in love! The bottom rug is from the Martha Stewart line. If it is good enough for Martha, well, you know it is a good thing!

I love how you can customize the look. You can keep it neutral or liven things up with fun colors and patterns. Creating one of these area rugs would be a relatively easy decorating project to warm up a room for your feet this fall! These rugs are eco-friendly too. All good things.

  1. I love those FLOR tiles! I get their catalog and have a few ideas for them, very cool product :)

  5. We have used FLOR carpet tiles in several of our rooms. SO practical. esp with kids and a dog. A tile gets dirty, just pull it up and wash it in the laundry room sink! Rumor has it that you can run the tiles through the dishwasher, but I am afraid to try! Great post.

  6. How novel!! I love them!!!

  7. I love this idea! And how easy to replace a tile if kids spill or dogs have accidents! Love your blog!

  8. Melissa, I also love the second photo of the staircase. I have the ubiquitous oak staircase/rails in my home, and I’ve been wanting to paint it ebony and white for five years! I was also talking to a carpenter this week about adding wainscoting (or some other interesting trim) to treat the staircase wall. So this picture serves as great inspiration!

    My wall color is “Chesapeake Sunset”, a warm yellow, and I think that (if I ever gather the courage to paint the staircase), a natural sisal (or sisal-look) runner would be pretty with the ebony, white, and yellow. Wonder if those floor tiles come in the proper length/width for a stair tread?!

  9. What a great idea. I’ve been looking for a hall runner for my downstairs hall and can’t seem to find a long runner, 16ft, with a full-length stripe unless I get something custom made, and even then the 16ft length is an issue as carpet rolls are generally not that wide. Maybe I can make my own using these tiles. Thanks for the tip!!

    Hope you are well. We just got back from Paris and I am still jet-lagged I think. Keeping waking up at 4am! I am taking today off for the Thanksgiving long weekend.

  10. I have seen those FLOR tiles before…what pretty colors…and fun patterns! LOVE it! I just recently ripped all the carpet out of our living room and replaced it with faux wood flooring, so I have been thinking about something to keep our tootsies warm during the winter. Great ideas!

  11. Great ideas!

  12. Oh now those are some interesting floors! A quick and easy facelift. :) Love the idea!

  13. I also love FLOR tiles, especially when used in very traditional settings like your first two pictures. Plus, they’re recyclable! It’s all good.

  14. What a great idea! I have been searching for just the right rug for awhile and haven’t found it. Maybe I will make my own! I love your blog!

  15. I had heard about them, but never really saw them in action- they would be perfect to use in a home that has bad floors- and you couldn’t afford to put in all new floors- great idea!

  16. This is definately a fantastic idea! My feet are always freezing :)

  20. Los pisos de piedra o madera son fantásticos pero no son tan acogedores y cálidos como el toque que dan las alfombras y sobre todo para nuestros pies en el invierno.
    Podrás personalizar la apariencia de todos los ambientes, con estos cuadrados o baldosas de alfombra. Los hay en una gran variedad de colores y texturas donde lograrás un visual contemporáneo. Su textura es suave e incluso soporta mucho tráfico. Son fáciles de colocar estas alfombras y además una buena cosa, son ecológicas! Ellas se pueden adaptar a cualquier tamaño de espacio. Es verdaderamente una combinación de practicidad y estilo!

  21. Melissa,
    Thanks for the link to this website. I had to go and order the catalog right away!

  22. While I loved the idea of the FLOR tiles in concept they didn’t work out so well for our home. With two cats – one of which is long haired, ie the worst shedder ever! – they never really looked clean. We ended up getting a Dyson vacuum and even then we couldn’t get all the hair up (the vacuum would, however, try to pull the tiles up from the floor so it’s not like it was because of the lack of suction). The tiles were also really scratchy to walk on.

  23. I am visiting after ages…, but your blog always is so welcoming and the fall colours are so inspiring:-) Though we don’t have fall in Bangalore…would love to use some of the ideas:-)

    I love the tea light candle in the teacup…how delightful:-)

  25. I love those carpet tiles. I especially love the colors in the second to last one. I will check these out for the new house.

    The best part about using area rugs is that if you decide you want to change up the decor of the room, they are easy to change. I love those patterns!
