About Hearth Rugs

Hearth rugs add a traditional touch to your fireplace and create a dignified ambiance for any room. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colors to suit any design. These fireplace rugs meet the DOC FFI-70 standard for surface flammability of carpets and rugs. Fireplace hearth rugs keep your carpet and floors safe from flying sparks.

What Kind of Rug Can You Put in Front of a Fireplace?

The most popular natural fiber rugs for the hearth are made of wool, sisal, jute, seagrass, and hemp or combinations of these materials. Be sure to select a rug that is specifically designed for use near a fireplace since these are required to meet specific requirements that reduce their surface flammability. Some rugs are coated in fire retardant chemicals to increase their fire resistance.

Should You Use a Hearth Rug?

A hearth rug protects your carpet or hardwood floors from the danger of flying sparks, scratches from logs, etc. A rug is much easier to replace than more permanent flooring. A hearth rug adds not only protection, but style to your space. These beautiful rugs can be the visual center of the space as well as being functional.
