We recently moved into a new home and are finally settled in and unpacked. Part of moving always involves finding spaces for your stuff or figuring out that you need some stuff for your space. At our old house the kids playroom was carpeted. Our new place has wood floors throughout much of the house, including the playroom. My kids started complaining that the floor was cold and uncomfortable and I realized that we needed to put a rug in there in there for their comfort but also so the room wouldn’t look so bland. Here is a picture of playroom before we got a rug:
I was thrilled to receive a Mohawk Home Rug for use in our playroom. Mohawk creates a variety of flooring solutions, whether you are looking for carpet, tile, hardwood, area rugs or other options. You can find their area rugs at Target, Kohl’s, Home Depot and other retailers. They offer area rugs in many sizes and styles so no matter your decor you will find something to fit your lifestyle. For our room, a 5×8 rug worked best. We had a hard time choosing a design since there were so many patterns we liked. We went with the Mohawk Home Annapolis Lines Multi 5 ft. x 8 ft. AreaRug which is sold at Home Depot. I love the colors and the pattern seemed like it would be fun in a playroom.
I really think the rug brightens up the space don’t you? It automatically gives the room a pulled together look.
But what would the kids think? That was the real test for me. My kids were so excited when they walked in the playroom and saw the rug. They started rolling around on it and doing somersaults, something they never did on the hardwood floors.
We soon realized that the lines on the rug made a perfect track for our trains. All aboard!
