Being a mom of 3 young kids, and 4 fur babies, you can bet this house sees it’s fair share of dust & dirt. I’m sure I must vaccuum at least twice a week, but even so, the area rug in our front room never seemed clean.

Between the dirt the kids drag in, the dust & hair from our pets, and the ware and tear of daily life, it was looking grimy within a couple of weeks of purchasing.

Not only that, but no matter how hard I tried to flatten them, the edges kept curling up and it just looked bad. I knew we needed to try something different.

The kids have a Ruggable rug in their room and we love it so much! Ruggable rugs are machine washable, water resistant, and so easy to clean. After a year with our traditional rug in the living room, and knowing that something needed to change, we decided to make the switch to a Ruggable rug!

We chose the Cambria Sapphire 8×10 rug for our living room. The size is perfect to separate our living area from the rest of the space in the room, and tucks nicely under our sectional couch.

With the help of my husband, we had the old rug rolled up and the new one in place in about 20 minutes.

Watch this video to see how easy Ruggable rugs are to install!

Ruggable rugs are a two part system. They include the nonslip rug pad, which makes them perfect for smooth surfaces like tile or wood flooring, and the rug design cover itself.

The rug covers are low pile, stain resistant, waterproof, and can be thrown right into your washer and dryer for easy cleaning. Yep- even the 8×10 size! I’m telling you it’s a dream come true! You can learn more about the Ruggable care instructions here.

I am so pleased with how easy yet impactful this simple change was for our living room, and just in time for all of the holiday entertaining we will be doing! Now is the perfect time to make the switch or add a brand new Ruggable rug to your home- whether it’s a 3×5, a runner, or an area rug like ours.

Update: It’s been over a year since we got our ruggable and I still love it! I do have one corner that curls in a high traffic area but have found that using a garment steamer I can flatten it back down with ease!

I have a deep love and appreciation for nature and the arts (Yep, I'm one of those crazy plant ladies). I believe strongly in kindness, compassion, creativity & gratitude: these are some basic pillars I want to instill in my kids. When I'm not working, chances are I'm researching my latest obsession (I'm a perpetual learner), cooking up something equal parts tasty and healthy, or still in my pj's crafting &/or having dance parties with my kids in our living room ;) . I was born and raised in Northern California where I worked as a barista for 5 years, and a commercial artist & letterer for 8. Now I am working from home doing product photography & imaging, and also running my illustrative design business where I specialize in handlettering, chalk art and custom design work.
