Fireplace Rug Types
Fireplace rugs are important in tht they actually help protect your home from flying embers, ash, or rolling logs. These rugs are specially designed to be fire resistant and are placed on the floor in front of the fireplace or woodstove. In addition to the safety and protection issue, fireplace rugs also add a sense of charm to the room.

Rather than using just any throw rug in front of your fireplace or woodstove, you want to choose rugs that are made for this purpose. The following are some of the more popular choices that you will find on the market. Keep in mind that you can find these rugs at your local fireplace or home improvement stores.

The border is designed in two-tone blue checks with the center design of vibrant blue, gold, and mauve flowers surrounded by green leaves. This rug and others like it can be purchased for around $100.
