Mohawk Flooring~ Rug Review and a Giveaway Too!

We’ve lived in our home for almost 5 years and are STILL trying to “move in”. We are a military family that is constantly on the run so, we add to our home little by little. We are SO slow that it took us 4 years of living in this house before we bought a couch!

Even with a couch (and a nice wall mounted flat screen television) I rarely spent time in our living room because it always seemed so “cave-like” and cold. The only time I’d ever willingly spend time there was to hang out with my husband. Even our dogs didn’t enjoy being in that room! If they did go, it was only to be with us and as hard as we tried, they refused to be anywhere but on the couch. They even passed up lying down in the most comfortable leather and Sherpa lined dog bed! Then Mohawk rugs changed our lives!

I received the most BEAUTIFUL rug from Mohawk! I have to admit, I was a little worried about having a rug since our house is a strange mix of brown floors, tan walls, and black baseboards but I couldn’t believe how this rug pulled the entire room together while changing the entire mood of the room! First off, it instantly lightened up the area. For the first time ever, the room didn’t feel like a cave!

I’m completely embarrassed to show what my room looked like before the Mohawk rug but you have to see the difference for yourself…

Look at this after shot!

Even my couches look nicer!

Pretty amazing difference huh?

The rug actually made the small living area look bigger!

It doesn’t even look like the same place when you compare it to that first picture!

The added bonus was that the room literally warmed up! I could actually sit in the room with my feet snug on the floor instead of buried under a blanket! My dogs seemed to notice too because they finally got off the couch!! See?

This rug is unbelievably soft! Everyone wound up on the floor within a matter of 15 minutes of putting the rug in place.

I was so happy with this beautiful rug that I became a bit neurotic and watched it like a hawk (no pun intended). Three days later my fears were realized. I hear “Babe? Um, I think I messed up”. Instantly I freaked because he was sitting on the couch already and I knew he did something to the carpet. Then I hear the dreaded “I forgot to take my boots off”. NOOOOO! Mind you, we are farmers and boots that don’t come off means that cow stuff and mud get tracked in right along with the farmer. So I ran over and saw a trail of mud droppings all over the carpet! I grabbed my vacuum as fast as I could and expected to be on my knees brushing out the stains for the next few hours but after a quick vacuum over the carpet, there wasn’t a speck of mud left! The rug came clean in a matter of seconds! I was sold at that very second! I can honestly say I will NEVER own another brand of rug!

So, if you are ever in the market for a rug that is TOTALLY worth the money, be sure that it’s a Mohawk. You will NOT be disappointed! Visit Mohawk Flooring to check out their awesome selections of tile, vinyl, carpet, and area rugs!

    I would totally use it in my den when I get my new wood floors.

  2. I would put it in my bedroom. I have hard wood floors in my bedroom, which is on the second story, my room gets sooo cold in the winter. I think a rug would not only help it look better, but my feet wouldn’t be so cold. 🙂

  3. I’m buying my first home and could really use help with furniture. This rug would absolutely spruce up a small empty living room.

  4. Maria Haddon says:

    My living room looks like your before picture. Couch on hardwood floors. Would love a rug to brighten the room and add warmth.

  5. Nicole Camara says:

    My bedroom looks a lot like your before picture. It needs a nice rug to warm and cozy it up!

  15. rachael streeter says:

    I would love this in my family room to sit on while we play games.

  16. I would use it in our living room. We have the tan, apartment grade, wall-to-wall carpet that is so boring! Budget wise (and little kid wise) we need to wait to upgrade to hardwood so this would be a great way to cover and add color while we wait.

  17. I would use it to spruce up my living room.

  18. We are going to put hardwoodflooring in the kitchen and living room, so I would put the rug in my living room.

  19. I would use the beautiful mohawk rug to spruce up my fiance’s bachelor pad! These nice earth tones would put the perfect touch without being feminine!

  20. i would put it in my living room! it would match my couches!

  21. Mai Youa Lo says:

    I would definitely put it in my living room. I have a U shape sofa sitting on plain hardwood floors. With the cold weather we wake up to freezing cold room and floors. I would love to win the rug to give my living room a nice warm but yet contemporary look.

  22. Jennifer S. says:

    I have been wanting a rug for my living room floor for the same reason you love yours. We have ceramic tile and a rug would look great. I just haven’t found one I really loved.

  23. I would love to use it in my living room!

  24. I would use it in my kids room. Finally we are making that space theirs and they are getting new built in bunk beds and a rug would look perfect in front of their new beds.

  26. New flooring will keep me from buying a new house lol!

  27. Cheryl Fisher says:

    I just took out the white carpeting in the living room and hallway. Whoa! After ten years, white carpeting isn’t so white any more. There was beautiful oak flooring under the padding. The couch and chairs look nice on the floor as a goup but, it looks a bit cold even with the bright sunlight coming through the front windows. It needs the POP of color and warmth with the presence a Mohawk rug! What great timing for a giveaway!! Thanks for the opportunity.

  28. Would love a beautiful sturdy rug for the living room on top of our hardwood.

  36. It would so go in my den. We have tile in there now along with a patio door = brrr. This would help our tootsies.

  37. Our house use to be a store about 20 yrs ago. So below our living room is a LOWER basement. Not the basement but, a LOWER BASEMENT all concrete and our living room is so cold. We get drafts from all over the place we tried caulking, and insulating. but, we are still freezing in the winter time maybe this would keep some of the cold air downstairs. It would be so nice not to have to watch tv with our winter clothes and blankets on.

  38. Our entire house is hardwood floors. It’s beautiful, but cold, especially now that it is getting to winter (our first winter in this house). I’d love one for our living room to help warm our house up 🙂


  39. My house really needs a rug like this. We have wood flooring in most of the home. One of the rooms is my sons. This rug would help keep his little feet warm when running around and playing!

  40. One of these rugs would really perk up my office space. It is very blah… we have a very neutral color scheme… a little style and life is needed!

  41. I would use it in our living area. Our daughter has to play on bare wood right now so she would LOVE a warm rug:)

  42. I love your before and after picture! I feel the rug would do the same to our living space. We installed laminate floors a year ago and while I do not miss the dingy carpet I do miss the warmth a rug/carpet adds to a room not to mention the warmth under our feet!

  46. We have no carpets in most of the room in our house, only subflooring…. so it would go into the little girls bedroom….

  50. I would love a new rug…especially one that will withstand my kids!!

  60. It would be in my living room! Warm, cozy and tie everything together? That’s what I need!

  61. I would put it in our living room. We have a carpet remnant in there now, and a nice rug would definitely look better 🙂 Good luck to everyone!

  66. I would use it in our bedroom which needs to have “warmer” floors!

  67. I need one large enough to satisfy four cats…and get them off my furniture!!

  74. I need a good rug to bring some color to the living room.

  75. Robin Cooper says:

    It would look lovely in my family room as I play with my 6 grandchildren. The 7 month old is crawling everywhere-how nice to crawl and play on this beautiful rug!

  76. I would definitely use it to brighten up my shabby looking living room space. A bit of a face lift is needed (or floor lift).

  77. I have no carpet in my house. This would be perfect for my baby to learn to crawl on. If she’s anything like my first, there will be a face plant or two before she gets the hang of it. 🙂

  84. Hi!! This is a beautiful rug!! I am 23 years old and am getting married on December 29th, 2012 ( 41 one days away lol but who’s counting) Anyways I would put this in our very first apartment. I live in spartanburg SC, but I am moving to Knoxville TN because my fiancé is in grad school there. We will have a small place with lots of hand me down furniture. This rug would really make our place feel like a home. The plates we registered for have that same blue and red color scheme going on, so it wouldn’t make our place feel so miss matched. Anyways, please pick us…this rug would be used for years and years and we’d be forever grateful.

  85. Teresa Moody says:

    That rug would go great in our living room and completely match our couch.

  88. Holly McCormick says:
