Mohawk Carpet Area Rug Review and Giveaway!!!

 

99.8 percent of my house is laminate, when we first moved in we were greeted by a sea of Rust Orange shag carpet that could have very well been older then I am. Before we moved everything in my loving husband got rid of all but one piece of carpet, that is because the one piece that was left was off white and in decent shape still.  For the first couple of years we had 2 kids and no animals and with time going by that quickly changed to 3 kids and 6 animals. With the years also came parties, kids playing, animals tracking in mud and just life in general. With the little carpet left being near the sliding screen door the off white carpet quickly gained a menagerie of new stains and new colors.  The carpet being in the bigger of the 2 rooms we have for general living space we moved the couches and TV into the smaller room, so the room with the carpet became the kids playroom.  As the years went by my  awareness of  how bad the carpet was really beginning to look set in, And it wasn’t long before I wanted some sort of change.

Take a look at how drab and dull it looked before, not to mention the stains that we are always trying to get out of certain areas. We were going to just rip it all out entirely and put laminate down, But I like the cushy feel that the carpet gave and liked that when Kenna would trip and fall the blow to her little butt wouldn’t be so hard.

Recently I was sent a saving grace, an answer to my designing dreams ( because we are trying to redo the whole house slowly) , I was sent a Mohawk Carpeting Area rug!!  When I first spoke with Mohawk I was honored that they were going to let my blog do a review of one of their beautiful area rugs, and when I was sent the list of retailers sites to choose one for my room it was one of the hardest choices I’ve ever had to make. With so many beautiful designs and colors where would I begin?? Would I choose bold colors or more muted? Floral designs or modern sleek line?? They possibilities were endless, and the fact that hubby and I had to agree on one made things even more difficult.  We narrowed it down to 4, then to 3, and then hubby said I could just pick one from those because he liked them all ( Secretly I think he had enough) .  What I chose was The Clarisse in a size  8 x 10  the design was just perfect and from the way the colors looked on the site it would match our newly painted play room.  When Fed Ex arrived with area rug I was amazed with the size ( not knowing how big it really was going to be) and the fact that it was packaged so well with heavy duty plastic in case for some reason it was raining and I was not home ( and all rugs are made in the USA). I made my oldest son help me bring it in and propped it up against the wall.

The next day I decided to surprise the hubby by putting down the new rug. I cleared the room out, moved the furniture that needed to be moved and got ready to set everything up the way I wanted it. The first thing that I noticed as I peeled away the heavy duty plastic wrap was the plush feeling that the carpet had and how beautiful the colors turned out to be.  It’s not as easy as it looks placing a high quality area rug in a room, there were a lot of new and interesting words that were spoken as the carpet got laid out ( Mostly because I couldn’t get it just the way I wanted it).  But when I was finished and I had it just right the look, feel and over all appeal of the new rug was astounding.  The colors matched better then I could have hoped, the carpet was superior quality and was so soft you would want to take off your socks and run your toes through it.  Kenna instantly ran onto it, and decided she had to lay down and roll around on the new rug  running her hands back and forth like she was petting an animal.

                                                                                                                          ( The ripples in the rug are from it being unrolled)

It still amazes me what a difference the area rug made in that one room, that something so simple could transform a room completely,and make it seem like a new place entirely!! We have had the rug for a little over a month, and it has most certainly gotten its share of abuse from the elements in my household.  Yet it still looks as new as it did when we first got it, any would be stains come up with ease and vacuuming it is no hassle at all!!  I am so impressed with this rug and so happy with the way that it has completed what was a drab and boring room.
