Isn't it funny how sometimes it's the things in your home you can't see that actually make such a huge difference? (I've been telling my husband this frequently during the past week as we've gone through a major overhaul in our bathroom tub.)
I absolutely love having a rug in our living room. It's one of those purchases I wonder how I did without for so long. But what I didn't love is how much the rug slipped around. I had bought an inexpensive rug pad in the beginning, which began to disintegrate on the floor, and I promptly removed it and went without.
There he is... the major rug moving culprit. He and the girls would go running through the dining room into the living room, over the rug, which would then end up pushed all over the floor. I really don't even want to think about how many times I had to position it back in place and the furniture that slid with it.
It was definitely time to try something else. This rug pad came from Rug Pad USA and I was very curious to see how it would work in comparison and how it would look and feel after a little time had passed. Well, now I'm wondering how I ever went without this rug pad as it has made the biggest difference. Not only does the rug not slip, even when Huck thinks he's a little kid that has to run after the girls, but it has so much more cushion and is a great place to relax. I've always loved sitting on the floor with the girls, whether it's reading or watching them play or working on a project of my own. This has definitely become our favorite place... just as a living room should be.
The rug pad is the Eco-Cushion, which is eco-friendly, safe for all floors, and will stay soft without breaking down.
You may have noticed we have a new coffee table in the living room. I've been working on a few updates in the room and the coffee table is my favorite new addition (built courtesy of my handy husband)... I'll be sure to share all the details soon!
