A New Rug for the Sun Room

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

I was recently contacted by a representative from Rugs USA about reviewing an area rug.  There were so many great rugs to choose from that my decision was not easy.  As a matter of fact, I changed my mind several times.  Just ask the nice representative who helped me ;)

I finally decided on this one and am so happy I did. 


The rug is a 5 x 7 which is the perfect size for our little sun room.  The colors are exactly what I was looking for.  Our sun room doubles as a mud room and as much as I wanted to go with a whiter ground, the more natural ground made more sense.  The rug itself feels so great under bare feet.  It is made of polypropylene and not having any experience with this fiber, I was concerned that it might appear shiny and synthetic.  I am happy to report that the overall appearance and quality makes me one happy girl.  My sun room is a little closer to being finished now.

 For your viewing pleasure, here are a few more of my favorites...



Rugs USA is currently offering 20% and 30% off on select rugs - very tempting if you ask me.

  10. Thanks for the resource! I keep thinking about an outdoor rug for under our dining room table. Not sure I'm ready to part with the $$ but this is an excellent resource for future reference.

    Picking out rugs is so hard. I always end up leaning towards really generic colors and patterns. Because even a couple hundred dollars is enough of an investment to me that I don't want to get tired of it and I don't want to have to replace it until it's worn out. I'd love to hear your tips on how to choose a rug that will accent a room but not look dated in a year (or five).

  15. Oh, lucky you! I really like what you chose. I am all over that striped one. CHecking to see if it's synthetic too -- I need something new for the kitchen.

  16. Very nice, Rene! And I'm happy to hear the synthetic feels and looks good to you. The trellis rug is great--wonder if it comes in other colors?

  17. I concur with everyone else above me here in the Comments ... nice choice.

    The greatest thing about polypropylene is that the rug is WASHABLE. Years ago I got an imitation oriental rug for free on Craig's List. It was filthy, but it was also big and FREE, so I took it ... much to my poor husband's disappointment. When we got home, I unrolled it in the driveway, vacuumed it, then scrubbed it down with soapy water, a brush, and the hose. (Our two-year-old-at-the-time grandson had a wonderful time helping.) This cleaning method is not something I'd recommend doing with a wool rug ... but it's perfectly okay with a synthetic.
