Choosing Area Rugs for the Holidays

So you’ve decorated your Christmas tree, you’ve adorned your facade with colorful lights, and perhaps you have even wound some shimmering garland around your staircase. Yes, your home is just about ready for the holidays, but something’s missing. Ah, yes. The area rugs. While your simple-patterned rugs may do the trick for the majority of the year, they don’t exactly burst with holiday festivity. So what can we do about this? It’s time to unveil some seasonal rugs.

Tips for Choosing the Right Rugs

  • First, we’ll need to pay a bit of mind to the general rules, specifically as they pertain to size. For dining rooms, your rugs should be large enough to cover the dining room table and chairs (even as people back up their chairs to leave the table). For living rooms, there are no strict rules of area rug etiquette, but traditionally, you would want to consider 5’x8’, 8’x10’ or 9’x12’.
  • Go with bold patterns and colors. The holidays are a time for ostentatious displays and unapologetic frivolity, so don’t be afraid to replace your simple symmetrical patterns with boisterous designs. After all, the goal here is to be festive and celebratory. So consider kicking it up a notch, and don’t be afraid to break the general rules of style in favor of something a bit more .
  • Consider your colors. Red and green are traditional for Christmas, while blue and white are suitable for Hanukkah. If you’re going for a general winter theme, you’ll want plenty of white to invoke images of snow. Failing that, consider the color scheme of your other holiday décor, and choose your holiday area rugs accordingly.
  • Choose extremely durable fibers. If you’re hosting the Christmas or Hanukkah festivities, your rugs are going to see a tremendous amount of foot traffic, and they might even see their fair share of debris from all of the chips, dips and other snacks that your guests carelessly drop. With that in mind, you’ll want to choose an extremely durable rug that’s capable of standing up to the worst abuse. Consider going with Sisal area rugs, Seagrass area rugs or wool area rugs.
