How to Use Area Rugs for Your Holiday Decor
The holidays are upon us, which means shopping for gifts, digging out cherished recipes and of course, decking your halls. However, sometimes our everyday home aesthetic doesn’t mesh quite as well with our favorite holiday decorations, making it hard to achieve the look you crave during the season. There are a number of ways that you can easily transform your home for the holidays with a few simple tweaks, but the biggest impact can be made by simply switching out your area rug. Check out these beautiful 8x10 holiday rugs for inspired home décor that’s sure to bring joy.
Switch Out for Seasonal Colors
You love your pastel-hued floral area rugs, but when it comes time to decorate for the holidays, those springtime prints don’t always blend well. Solve that problem when the seasons roll around by switching out your area rugs for ones with colors and prints with more seasonally appropriate motifs. The best part of all? These rugs don’t have to be used only for the holidays! Roll one out in your office, spare bedroom or wherever you please all year round, then simply swap them during season’s greetings for holiday and home décor that does double-duty.
Accent A Decorated Tree
For many homeowners, the big statement-making centerpiece of their holiday décor is their Christmas tree. One way to make this beloved seasonal piece shine is by highlighting it with a round area rug. Round area rugs are more popular than ever, and are best used to draw attention to circular furniture and décor pieces, like the round base of a Christmas tree. Pick a round area rug in a bold red hue or in a timeless, traditional print for a sophisticated way to make your holiday shine.
Make Your Entryway Magical
One of the first places your visitors will see during the holidays and all year long is the entryway to your home. If you’re looking for one area to focus on and really spruce up this season, besides around your Christmas tree, focus on the area around your front door for the biggest impact. A polypropylene area rug in a bold holiday hue offers a great way to welcome visitors and make your home look holiday-ready.
Create a Wintery Walkway
Do you enjoy setting up your own Christmas village each year? Roll out a festive colored runner at the foot of your display for the perfect way to draw visitors near. Runners are also great at the foot of buffet tables, leading down hallways, or to fill out tight, narrow spaces, and help to signal to your visitors which way to go.
Don’t Forget the Kitchen
Holiday-themed rugs in the kitchen? Yes! If there’s one place that people spend the most time in during the holidays, it’s definitely by the sink and the stove. Baking cookies, preparing holiday treats and entertaining family and friends almost always ends up happening in the kitchen, so be sure to add a touch of seasonal sparkle to this are of your home as well. Round area rugs are a great choice under the breakfast table, and runners in holiday hues will help give your kitchen décor that special seasonal feel.
If you’ve been looking for a way to create a truly spirited feel in your home this season and make a big visual impact, look no further than holiday-inspired area rugs. They’re a great décor investment that can be used in multiple ways all year long to help warm up the look of your home and create a designer holiday style.
