Last fall, we finished our front room (like 90% done) and have basically been living with it as is ever since, but we’ve run into a problem. While we LOVED the thick grey rugs, they had too big of an appetite for our vacuums to keep up with!!
Literally our vacuum shuts down trying to vacuum this mop of carpet. I mean we have lost legos, whole pretzels, popcorn, beads, rocks, you name it, if it falls into the rug, it gets swallowed. The only time it is every coming out is if you step directly on it, don’t move an inch, to find it and then can coax it out… So sadly we decided we needed something a LOT more family friendly!
Enter our fun partnership with Shaw Floors, that we talked about here. We love Shaw!
Backstory for our rug: Our living room is rather big and we actually used two 7′ x 10′ rugs placed side by side to fill the whole space. While for the most part it worked, I would have rather have had a large solid, one piece rug.
So I was excited when I learned about Tuftex’s custom rug program with Shaw Floors… Basically the program is this- you can take a Tuftex carpet you like and have it cut and the edges bound to the size you need customized exactly for your room!
The cool part about the cut a rug program is you can take Shaw’s amazing carpet and have it cut to the size you need and bound and shipped to your door. AMAZING! I just have to remind you of some of the amazing featured of Shaw’s carpets in this video we made… This is not a commercial, this literally was one of the most amazing things my little cell phone has ever recorded!
I will admit I didn’t pick a treated carpet because I just picked my favorite carpet pattern and I LOVE the herringbone! Best of all, we are loving how much cleaner our floor is every day I can tell you that.
Rug Style Info:
I got mine cut at 15′ x 11′ which is huge!
The pattern is JD707 Soft Breeze in the color 00558 Chateau
I had it bound with 2″ fabric binding using the Granite color.
It is just that simple to totally refresh our living room, we didn’t change anything else! And it feels SO great!
Just a few more pictures because I love it!
At night it is still nice and bright!!
What do you think?
*I’d like to thank Shaw for partnering with me on this post!
