As the cold weather months quickly approach, it’s time to amp up the coziness in your home. Though there are a lot of fun ways to do this, especially during the festive season, we’ve found that the simple addition of a red rug can really make all the difference.
Not only do red rugs pair well with holiday decorations, like ornaments, Christmas trees, and candy canes, they also provide a lovely warmth perfect for any time of the year.
From red kitchen rugs to red rugs for your living room, keep scrolling to see all the ways you can use a red rug in any room of your home this holiday season — and beyond!
1. Red Rug on the Front Porch / Patio: Winter Tartan Red Doormat and Outdoor Gingham Plaid Black and White Rug
The perfect seasonal nook — outside! Turn your front porch or patio into a mini holiday escape featuring festive plants, seasonally appropriate pillows, and a rug combo to pull it all together. But instead of just throwing down your typical front mat, why not try rug layering to spice it up? After all, there’s nothing like a black and white plaid rug to make a red tartan Christmas doormat pop!
2. Red Rug in the Entry: Linear Striped Candy Cane Rug
Have you ever seen such a welcoming entryway? The grand staircase with its garland and the giant snow-dusted tree with its red ornaments seamlessly blend with this festive red runner rug. To top it all off are the big lanterns on the stairwell, adding to the charming holiday spirit.
3. Red Rug in the Dining Room: Kaden Amber Red Rug
What an absolutely grand space to dine. We can’t tell what’s more fabulous: the gold and crystal chandelier, the large grandfather clock in the corner, or the red Persian rug underneath the table. Just as the room mixes classical style with modern accents, this rug impressively balances traditional with modern, resulting in a unique design that you can’t help but admire.
4. Red Rug in the Kitchen: Dress Stewart Tartan Red Rug
As festive as this green and red tartan rug is, the beloved pattern can add a homey appeal to just about any room, any time of the year. Of course, it looks especially great with the little bits of garland and the mini evergreen tree with gold ornaments. But even without these holiday touches, the red rug would still work with the dark wood accents and red tapered candles to add a little warmth and rustic charm to such a bright kitchen year-round.
5. Red Rug in the Reading Nook: Alessia Royal Red Rug
This nook makes us want to snuggle up with cup of tea and a good book. Between the antique gallery wall, wood paneling, and the slightly distressed round red Persian rug, this space is all kinds of goals for readers and day-dreamers, alike.
6. Red Rug in the Living Room: Hudson Stripe Red Rug
Giving us candy cane vibes, this red and white striped rug makes for the perfect accent against a Christmas tree and festive ornaments. But once those decorations come down, the simple design pairs beautifully with just about any living room decor. As pictured here, we favor the combo of red, cream, and black, and natural wood for a cozy finish.
7. Red Rug in the Bathroom: Vintage Heriz Ruby Rug
Red rugs are a great way to add warmth to an otherwise cool space, and this modern bathroom is a prime example. The red Persian rug not only balances out the grey walls and white cabinets, but it also elevates the space thanks to its sophisticated pattern.
