Real Rugs for Real Families


You know, we spend a lot of time on this blog talking about rug designs and decorating tips. And that’s definitely an important part of choosing a new area rug for your home. But there’s another consideration to keep in mind when searching for the right area rug, too – how well that area rug will stand up to real use in a real household full of real kids and pets.

It’s one thing to discuss which area rugs are suited for high-traffic vs. low-traffic areas, or how to remove stains from different types of area rugs. But moms know it’s quite another to figure out which rugs will stand up to hours of tricycle races and wrestling matches, or spilled grape juice and ground-in crayons, and still come out looking like new.

That’s one of the things we here at Rugs USA pride ourselves on – we offer a wide selection of durable rugs that are made to last, and that just happen to be gorgeous and luxuriously comfortable, as well.

Jennie of The Diary of a Real Housewife agrees. As the mom of a 2-year-old boy, an infant, and a beautiful chocolate lab, she intimately understands the kind of abuse a family rug needs to be able to withstand. And Rugs USA was happy to be able to provide her with exactly what she needed!

This is how she put it: “I have been searching for a rug for our living room, well, since we moved in 3 years ago. It’s a big decision, and I wanted to pick one that I knew would hold up to two wild kids, a dog, and that I would really like for a long time. After searching and searching I am pretty excited to announce I found the one and got it at Rugs USA. Once the rug was on the way I obsessively checked UPS’s site of course! When Tuesday rolled around we had a huge snow storm, and I worried all day it wouldn’t arrive. When it came right on time I was so excited! It was packaged up perfectly and looked great! I set it up right away.”

Jennie chose our Rugs USA Homespun Moroccan Trellis Blue Grey Rug, and it looks absolutely perfect in her living room, if we do say so ourselves.

So what did this busy mom think of her new rug once she had put it in place? Here’s her review: “I can’t believe how one thing could change the feel of a room so much! And I couldn’t love it more. Eli is already enjoying being able to roll around on it. Daisy loves taking her naps on it. And I’ve only had it a week and Max already puked on it, life of a mama. Life happens and I needed something to stand up to all that, the good news is the rug held up great!”

We’re so glad that Jennie is happy with her new rug – and that her little ones feel the same way! Making rugs that last is Rugs USA’s commitment to real families. Because we understand.
