Tis the season for bright lights, Christmas trees and sparkling decorations that fill our homes with warmth and holiday cheer. We will be digging out that box marked “X-mas stuff” out of hiding and bringing out stockings, garlands, nutcracker candleholders and table pieces.
However, we forget that sometimes less is more and that all we really need is one, eye catching piece to make the room feel warmer, brighter or both! Most of us probably have never thought of a rug as much of a holiday decoration, however with their growing popularity, this can be just the thing to make your home holiday ready.
Generally, the room that gets most of the attention during this time of year is the family room, as this is also usually the room in which our Christmas tree stands. Instead of getting a generic tree skirts, why not choose a bright and colorful area rug. It does not necessarily have to display a Christmas theme (although a tasteful, festive rug can be fun for the kids). This can be placed as a centerpiece of the room or near the tree where presents will be placed.
Because bold colors and patterns are in, it is easy to find something that is both Holiday appropriate and every day savvy. If you are looking for something that is easy to change up during the Holidays, try smaller, rectangular rugs that can work near your door, in your kitchen or even under the breakfast table. These are easy to store and can be changed up every season.
Rugs can also make for the perfect Christmas gift this season, especially for kids rooms. Fun animal print rugs can add a little extra for both boys and girls as well as for young adults who are looking to snaz things up.
Rugs are also great gifts for young couples on a budget. A nice rug can make any small space light up this season and this may be just the thing they need to add a little bit of Christmas cheer.
