As Christmas approaches, many love to add some extra holiday flare by adding Christmas area rugs and carpet runners. In this article, I’ve gathered some of my favorite holiday rugs for Christmas. These include holiday rugs for living rooms, entry ways, kitchens, stairs and bathrooms.
You’ll be happy to know that many are inexpensive and can be used for many years, every time another Christmas approaches. You’ll also be happy to learn that many of these will also help you protect your hardwood floors and make clean up a bit easier.
I’ve included a wide variety of Christmas rugs. Some include Merry Christmas, Santa, Christmas Trees. Others are more subtle using Christmas colors, especially red and white for a festive holiday look, and these can be used throughout the winter season or beyond.
