Mohawk Home Rugs Review & Giveaway

We recently moved into a new apartment a few months ago, and are finally going to stay put where we are for quite a few years. With that said, I am all into decorating and making this house a home, since we will be here for a while. I am always looking for home decorating products and other useful home products to make our house feel more like home, and be warm and welcoming to us and guests. I came across Mohawk Home just in time!



"Mohawk Industries is one of the foremost manufacturers and distributors of residential and commercial flooring in the world. We enjoy leading market positions across multiple flooring categories, including carpet, ceramic tile, stone, wood and rugs in the United States and laminate in the U.S. and Europe. Mohawk dates its roots to the 1800's when it became one of the first American carpet manufacturers. Today the company is headquartered in Calhoun, Georgia with operations on three continents."

I was SO excited to receive a new area rug for our new apartment! We have this unattractive, thin green rug in our living room, which is the first room everyone sees as they enter our home:



I wanted the biggest rug I could find to cover up this ugly green thing referred to as "carpet"....if you can even really call it that! I also wanted something to kind of match our couch color, and I loooove polka dot designs. (As if you couldn't tell by my blog design!) After much searching, I finally chose the Mohawk Home 5'3" by 7'10" Multicolor Select Kaleidoscope Area Rug.


The measurements seemed big enough for what I wanted, to cover the majority of my living room floor, and the pattern grabbed my attention right away. The colors also drew me in, as they matched our living room couch. However, I was still skeptical while waiting for the rug to arrive. I wasn't sure how it would look in our home, and if it would look "out of place" with the rest of the apartment or how much of the original rug you would be able to see after this one was laid down. I just didn't want it to look silly or strange.


I received the rug very quickly (excellent customer service and shipping!) and hubs got to measuring right away, and got the rug laid down as soon as possible so we could check it out.



I was in LOVE when we finally got it down and everything situated and organized around it. Connor and Merasia wasted no time in testing it out themselves...


I absolutely, positively LOOOOVE this rug!! It definitely exceeded my expectations, and we are all sooo happy with it! It's nice and fluffy, so it's great to walk on and it really brightens up our home. It's clean and bright, so it's warm and welcoming, and with Mason always out in the living room playing and crawling around, it makes for a nice, thick surface for him to play on and if he falls down and bumps his head, there's some added cushion in the thickness of this rug, as opposed to the thin, scratchy original rug.


We have gotten many compliments on this rug since getting it, and since we live in an apartment and can't make permanent changes to anything, this is a great alternative since it's not nailed or staples down to the flooring at all, it can easily be removed to a different room or whenever the time comes for us to move out, it can just be rolled up and taken with us.


Overall, I am very, very happy with this choice, and will definitely be recommending and turning to Mohawk Home for my and my friends and families future needs.
