Since buying a house last year I have spent a lot of time making it my own. In fact, we just finished installing laminate flooring in one of the rooms (that’s another blog post altogether!). Changing the floor is a very easy way to update a room without breaking the bank – if you do it room-by-room. There are a TON of great looks from Mohawk when it comes to laminate flooring, rugs, tile, and hardwood.

I wanted to change my dining area. It was just so… blah… We had painted it a gorgeous Tiffany Blue and have some black accents, but it just needed more.


beforeSee? blah.

Luckily Mohawk has some beautiful – and affordable – rugs!


I am LOVING the look of this rug – called Everyday Life: Black Pebble. It’s a HUGE 8×10 that really creates warmth and texture to my otherwise dull dining room. Since it’s getting colder out, my feet appreciate stepping on warm carpet over cold floor when I get up early every morning.

Now I just need to get a new BIG dining room table to make my lovely room even more inviting.

The tufted fibers are low enough to sweep if I need to. Because my dining room leads out to the backyard I am often having to clean up tracked-in dirt, so to have a rug that is easy to clean is a HUGE plus!
