Holiday Gift Guide Day 18 - Mohawk Home Rugs Review and Giveaway

Holiday Gift Guide Day 18 - Mohawk Home Rugs Review

Since it is the week of Thanksgiving, this week I wanted to talk about things I am thankful for.

My husband and I have been married 8 years this January. In the first 5 years of our marriage, we lived in a lot of different apartments. We moved 5 different times because of school, bad apartments, and bad neighbors. Then 2 and a half years ago we finally saved enough money to buy our own home. After moving so many times I am very grateful that I have my own home and don't have to move anymore. I am also very grateful that I can decorate my home and do whatever I want with it.

When we bought our home everything was very plain. All of the floors were tan and the walls were very white. We've painted a few walls and added color where we could, but it still needs quite a bit of help.

One of the few rooms we painted was our family room. We spend so much time in there that I had to have color. Even though our walls looked better, our floor and furniture were still very tan.

The blue walls and orange pictures made a huge difference, but it was still lacking. So I started looking for a great rug to tie in both colors.

I found some great options at Mohawk Home.

Mohawk Home has a huge collection of rugs for every room in the house. Besides accent rugs, they carry kitchen rugs, bathroom rugs, outdoor rugs, and even doormats. They have modern, classic, and everything in between.

After much searching and deliberation I settled on the Mohawk Home Select Strata Aqua Fusion 5 ft. x 8 ft. Area Rug. 

It was a bit  more modern than my usual style, but I thought that the colors would look great in the room.

When I unrolled the rug I was excited to find that the not only did the colors work, but I really loved it.  Here it is in all it's glory.

The rug adds so much to the room.  The orange and blue that we already had in the room was really enhanced by the color in the rug.  And I love the random pattern.  My girls are a bit messy, and the rug makes their mess blend in more.    The rug is soft and doesn't catch on my feet, and it never curls up.

To Buy - Mohawk Home Rugs are available online and at a wide number of retailers.  The selection and price varies by store.  If you want to change the look and feel  of a room with very little effort, I would definitely recommend checking out Mohawk Home Rugs!
