When we bought an older home, one of the things we fell in love with were the hardwood floors that cover most of the house. The flooring is original from when our house was built back in 1924, and they're beautiful. There's nothing like the look of old wood. It's so charming!
But with hardwood floors comes maintenance. Lots and lots of maintenance! Between polishing, steam cleaning, and sweeping, it's a LOT of work! Not to mention the fact that furniture can actually scratch and damage the wood over time.
That's why we decided we would cover the floors in most of our higher traffic areas with area rugs. And naturally, the first name that came to mind was Mohawk Home. If you haven't heard of Mohawk, you've either been abducted by aliens or hiding under a rock somewhere. You see, this company is a leader in the flooring industry, and their name is synonymous with quality. When I think of Mohawk Home, three words come to mind: Durability, Elegance, and Style.

I reached out to the wonderful folks at Mohawk Home and told them about our new home and our plans for decor and renovation. They were more than happy to send me a rug for my dining room, and I was so excited!
Here is my dining room before:
Pretty bare,huh? I chose the Select Canvas Bangkok for my review. I knew it would match my home perfectly, since it has rich colors like reds, blues and greens that fit into our decor seamlessly. Our dining room has a beautiful green glass chandelier, and we're painting our adjoining living room red. This gorgeous rug will definitely help my home's look "flow" from one room to the next.
I also love the fact that this rug features an elegant, traditional design but has a more modern feel due to the creative color-blocking. All I can say is that the design team at Mohawk Home is pure genius. Look how beautiful it is!
Good looks aside, this rug is unsurpassed in quality. It is 100% nylon and is quite thick. This earns some major brownie points since I hate flimsy rugs that bunch up. With Mohawk Home rugs, this is never an issue. The rug is also very plush and soft under our feet. It has a very luxurious feel to it that I appreciate very much.
Overall, I couldn't me more thrilled with my area rug from Mohawk Home. It is so soft under our feet, stunning to look at, and fits our decorating tastes to a tee. Of course Mohawk offers hundreds of styles to choose from. So whether you live in a trendy New York flat and love contemporary, geometric design or prefer something more simple, I guarantee you, Mohawk Home is sure to have a design (or 10!) that will make you drool. And the prices are surprisingly affordable, too! Hey, who said luxury had to be expensive?
This rug completely transformed the feel of my dining room. I love this company so much, we're actually considering using some of their other products to redo the floors in our kitchen and bathroom. I have my eye on their Cemento Warm Green. It's breathtaking! I will keep you all updated and if we end up choosing this flooring, I will certainly show you all photos. I would absolutely recommend Mohawk Home products for anyone who wants to bring a tired old room to life.
