Every morning Big C likes to eat his breakfast in the family room with little c by his side (so sweet, I know-right!?). We are trying to be disciplined about eating in the family room but sometimes it is just more fun to have a picnic there. As you can see our carpet is super light and I was getting frustrated when things would spill or the dog would track in dirt. And I wanted an area rug that I could throw in the wash after it caught those spills.
I found this fun black and white area rug at Cost Plus World Market and it has already been through the wash twice! I am trying it out in both the kitchen and family room. And I am super excited about these new Rug Pads from Rug Pad Corner for both rooms! My new black and white rug was a bit flimsy for both tile and carpet, but add some padding and…Walla! #Instagrip!
Isn't this orchid arrangement that my sister-in-law, Tara, created stunning? I love decorating with air plants!
Thinking back when my husband and I were first married, I will never forget our first apartment. The sun shined brightly into the kitchen (which I loved) and straight onto our floor mat by the sink. When it was time to move the adhesive padding had melted into the linoleum flooring… in which we had to pay to replace the floor!
Rug Pad Corner's rug pads have no off-gas as they are made of natural recycled felt or natural untreated rubber, never any chemicals, glues or adhesives. They will custom cut rug pads based on actual rug size at no additional cost, and they donate a portion of every order to one of 3 charitable organizations!
When I ordered my size, I sized it the same size as the rug. But after washing my rug twice it shrunk. Simple solution- the padding can be cut to size! So I trimmed the edge and now it fits great!
After questioning what to do with my adorable rugs sliding around, I am now happy and a huge fan of these rug pads especially since their is no off gas smell or discoloration to the floor. And I LOVE that the products are non-toxic since I have a 2 month old and 3 year old rolling all over the floors!
