It's a Rug's Life

Rugs are on our agenda today and we have been on the search for a few to add some pizazz and style to some of our rooms.  Rugs can also add a feel of softness and comfort to a cold or stark room as well.  We have not only been on a hunt for rugs, we've been on a hunt for affordable rugs that we love.  We don't want to settle on something just because it's cheap, we want to like it too.  So after much searching and scouring we have found just what we were looking for.  

First off, our main bathroom rug.  I'll be honest, I debated like crazy about this rug - not because I didn't love it but because I thought I might be able to find something less expensive.  After going around and around my mom finally helped me realize I was debating over $3 and to just get the one I wanted.  And I'm glad I did.  I love the added softness, texture and style this rug brings to our bathroom.  This is seriously the softest rug we've ever stepped on.

For our kitchen we wanted to find a neutral rug in a a more rectangular shape.  Silas and Chatham both love this rug.  It's given Silas a little favorite place to play in the kitchen and Chatham a favorite place to sleep.

Finally we're stylin' up our bedroom with an area rug that ties in our curtains that we just added.  We love how it just pulls everything together.

We have been working on a lot more things in our bedroom so we will be sharing those with you next week!  We might even get to finishing our bathroom.  There is still time to enter to win two products from Etsy shop SweetsNThings, you can enter our giveaway here, we will announce the winner on Monday!  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!


  1. I really like the bedroom rug. Good choice.

  2. rugs are so pricey!! did you get a good deal? and where? because i need a few for my house! and we're on a budget, you know?

  3. Yes, I know all about being on a budget! We were able to get some great deals on these rugs. We bought bedroom and kitchen rugs at Ikea. The bedroom rug cost $20 and the kitchen rug was $17! Our bathroom rug I found at Homegoods, it was $20 as well. Those two stores are great places to find affordable rugs. In our previous house we found a large area rug we loved at Lowe's for $40 (which really was a great price). I think Overstock often times has great rug prices, and they have cheap shipping. I think rug deals are out there, it took us a lot of looking to find what we wanted but the price was definitely worth it!

  4. Love the grey and white Ikea rug...have the same one in my living room!

  5. Just found you on a blog hop and am following now. You have some of the coolest ideas! Hope you will take the time to check out my blog too and perhaps follow also. Be well.

  6. Thanks for the recommendations! I never thought of Lowes!
