Mohawk Rugs {Sponsored Review}

Mohawk Area Rug Review ~

Who doesn’t love rugs? They bring such life into your home while also making your home warm and comfy. Rugs also help to protect your hardwood and laminate flooring. Recently I was given the opportunity to review Mohawk Rugs.

Watch this video to learn more about Mohawk and their company’s philosophy.

Here is what my floor looked like before I received my beautiful rug from Mohawk. Although I like our tile, it could definitely use some spicing up. I love neutral and earth tones, but it is nice to have some color, too.

The rug I chose is the Mohawk Home 5×8 Multicolor Select Strata Area Rug. I love that this rug is a large size that takes up a good part of the floor in my kitchen, where we decided to use it. We were going to put it under our table and chairs at first, but after seeing the rug, we decided that it was much too pretty to cover up with our table and chairs.

This rug is 5’x8′ and made in the USA. The majority of area rugs that I have seen come with either flowers patterns, geometric designs or Middle Eastern patterns. Though all of these patterns are beautiful, they do not really fit with the theme of our home. Our home has a beach motif, and this rug brings in a lot of the colors of the ocean, the sand, etc. It makes me feel beachy!

That is one of the things that I really love about Mohawk. They have all types of rugs to suit every taste. Their rugs come in vibrant, rich colors. And these rugs are super durable, to stay beautiful for years to come.

Mohawk also offers lots of sustainable products.  They offer EcoCotton bath rugs that use wool that would otherwise end up wasted in a landfill. Their Karastan wool woven rugs are made of natural fibers that are fully biodegradable. Mohawk also makes use of recycled fibers and rubber in many of their products. I love a company with a conscience. How about you?

      • Wendi Scharrer says:

        We are (very) recent empty nesters and plan on down sizing in the next year. I have been putting items away for the occassion, all earth tones. 🙂 My Husband is the same way! We are lucky gals!

        • Amen to that {about the hubbies}! My daughter is 15 so I will be an empty nester in a few short years myself. I dread it and look forward to it at the same time – it is very conflicting! Lol!
