As the holiday season peeks around the corner, your hardwood floors deserve to shine amidst the shimmering lights and décor. At Cochran’s Lumber, we’re here to level up your holiday decor inspiration, spotlighting ways to showcase your hardwood flooring.

Infusing Tradition with Elegance

Hardwood floors, with their inherent timeless appeal, provide a rich canvas upon which your holiday decor can unfold:

  • Highlight with Lights: Strategically place lights to cast a gentle glow on your hardwood, accentuating the wood’s natural grains and textures.
  • Rugs that Respect: Select area rugs that complement your hardwood’s tone without completely concealing its beauty, creating cozy spots that invite conversation and connection.

Harmonizing Colors: Celebrating Cochran’s Palette

Our diverse, exclusive collections, from the dark, rich hues of our Western Waves series to the gentle, embracing tones of the Ascetic collection, cater to a spectrum of aesthetic and stylistic preferences:

  • Contrast and Complement: Integrate decorations that contrast yet complement your floor’s color, allowing the unique shades and textures of your Cochran’s hardwood floor to pop through.
  • Unified Themes: Choose a color theme for your decorations that harmoniously binds with your flooring, offering a seamless visual experience across your spaces.

The Art of Subtle Showcasing: Letting the Wood Speak

Your hardwood floors carry within them a story, each plank showcasing years past uses, stories, and craftsmanship. Let them speak amidst your holiday decor:

  • Minimalist Magic: Adopt a minimalist decor approach, allowing the authentic beauty of your hardwood to take center stage amidst subtle, refined decorations.
  • Natural Elements: Infuse your decor with elements that echo the natural, authentic essence of your hardwood, such as pine cones, greenery, and wood-centric decorations.

Respecting the Character of Antique and Reclaimed Wood

For homes adorned with antique or reclaimed wood from Cochran’s, the history embedded within every plank offers a unique narrative to your holiday decor:

  • Vintage Vibes: Opt for decorations that resonate with a vintage charm, paying homage to the historical essence of your antique hardwood.
  • Nostalgic Nuances: Select ornaments and decor that reflect a bygone era, letting your floors and decorations together narrate a timeless holiday tale.
