Is it just us, or does the excitement that comes with holiday decorating seem to set in earlier and earlier every year?! From fresh garlands and wreaths, to string lights and stockings, changing the look of your home to match the season is a great way to get the whole family in the holiday spirit. And while rugs might not be one of the first elements of holiday decorating that come to mind, they should be! Where else is Santa going to leave all the presents for the family? When decking the halls this year, consider a bold Christmas-themed rug or read below to find a wide variety of rugs to tastefully set the tone and tie your festive spaces together!
We love decking the halls (and every other room in the house) with lights, tinsel, ornaments, and all sorts of other knickknacks. But one fact that is surely on Santa’s Good List is that the Christmas rugs you pick can be as individual as you are. Your Christmas rug can be as red as Rudolph’s nose or Santa’s hat. It can depict the whole cast of Frosty the Snowman. Or it can be a subtle, tasteful silver, gold, or white. How you celebrate your holiday is up to you, but you should always celebrate it in style!
Here are just a few ideas to get the holiday vibes humming:
- Plaid rugs can be reminiscent of wrapping paper, winter scarves, and holiday fashions.
- Gold rugs bring a blaze of festive color to rooms and set the season aglow.
- Red rugs say “bring on the eggnog” and make that evergreen Christmas tree truly pop.
Christmas rugs can be used for your front porch, your hallway, under the Christmas tree, and in front of the fireplace. They can also be a festive way to shield your kitchen floor from flour dropped from all your baking experiments, or even as Christmas gifts to others!
Traditional Christmas Rugs: The Ghost of Christmas Past
Cycling fashions and fads come and go, but there is nothing like a classic style in a holiday rug to make you remember all your favorite holidays from the past. College students coming home and family members coming to visit will love seeing timeless, traditional rugs unfurled in the hallway and under the tree as you all hang ornaments collected over the years.
If you’re selecting a Christmas rug that will last a lifetime of memories, search for a rug with memorable texture and designs. How often do you plan on updating your home’s style or the design in your living room? You want a classic rug that will fit with any style or color scheme over the years to come. This doesn’t mean that you have to settle for a boring color! Rather, pick a Christmas rug that will integrate well into any style.
This Crimson Red Bountiful Area Rug, found at Rugs USA, takes all the traditional colors of Christmas and turns them into a beautiful design for under your Christmas tree, or in front of the fireplace where stockings hang.
If you want a more versatile rug that could also be used at any other time of the year, this White Super Soft Luxury Shag with Carved Trellis Area Rug isn’t necessarily a Christmas rug, but it will match any holiday design you want to put in your room. Its soft, fluffy texture can even evoke the idea of snow, so that even if you live in Miami, you can have a white Christmas!
Whimsical Christmas Rugs: The Ghost of Christmas Present
Christmas and the New Year are all about pairing the old with the new. This can also apply to how you decorate your home for the season. You don’t have to adhere to uber-traditional decor like silver and gold, or snowflakes and reindeer, to create your ideal holiday atmosphere. Seasonal decorations can and should reflect your personality and the personalities in your family. Don’t fear to step outside the box when it comes to Christmas rugs.

With a dedicated play area on a Christmas rug like this Red Santa and Friends Area Rug, little ones will be able to rip open their presents and build their new train tracks and dollhouses while they stay at your house or enjoy their vacation from school.

The wonderful thing about seasonal Christmas rugs is that you can change them every single year and collect a different Christmas style for your scrapbook of memories.
