Tree skirts are designed to dress up the area under your tree, while also protecting your floor from potential damage that could occur over the course of the holiday season—or however long you leave your tree up (if pushing January is more your style, go for it!). Ultimately, though, these accessories are floor-savers: Issues like falling ornaments, dropped pine needles, and spilled water can all wreak havoc on your hardwood or tile flooring, causing long-term damage that lasts far longer than the most cheerful time of year.
A good tree skirts should also pull double duty and protect your ornaments from crashing down on said flooring, resulting in ruined adornments and a safety hazard for family members.
