Soft, Plush, Family Friendly Rugs....

We’ve got hardwood throughout the first floor of our home. Its great original hardwood and it could use some sprucing up, but until I’m ready to go rent one of those big sander things, and get to re-staining it myself, area rugs will have to do. Besides, it’s much better on my bare feet anyways.

Looking for area rugs, especially of a significant size is not the most pleasant shopping experience, at least for me and my hubby, and then when you throw kids into the mix, it can become a downright nightmare. That’s why I love the ease of, an online shopping experience that makes shopping for your next rug so much easier and relaxing.

In the comfort of your own home, on your own computer you can shop for hundreds of different rugs, of different sizes and style at your own pace and in your own time. is a very user friendly website that gets you around easily and without frustration. I just had a ball looking at all the different styles of rugs and picturing them in my home, in our dining area where our next rug would be needed. Another plus, FREE SHIPPING!! Rugs are heavy, especially if it’s of a significant size, and I couldn’t imagine the shipping price of the size of rug we would need.

Looking around and choosing a rug that is just right isn’t an easy task, but with kids around the house, seeing the words FAMILY FRIENDLY AREA RUGS was not only a savior but a blessing! We currently have a tiled area rug in our living room, which I thought was great at first, I was told it was stain resistant, which honestly, meant absolutely nothing! The girls got to it in no time, and the pink and red stains on the tiles are out of hand now, after trying to get them out numerous times, I’ve just given up. has a great selection of Family Friendly Area Rugs for your home, in some great styles that would fit anyone’s décor.

So what could I expect from a Family Friendly rug? Rugs To My Door teamed up with Sphinx by Oriental Weavers, and have provided their customers with a 10 year warranty against staining, too good to be true? That’s what I thought too, until we got our Gibson Generations Area Rug in our home. This is a great rug with a color palette that includes many different soft and deep tones. Just from the picture alone, it did this rug no justice. It’s just beautiful and would fit a traditional décor just as well as it fits our more contemporary and modern décor that we love.

Not only does it look great, but it feels great too, it’s so plush and soft on your feet. As you can see, it made my girls just want to lay down on it. The Gibson Generations Area Rug has the Family Friendly guarantee, and I was sure it would just be a matter of time before I put that guarantee to the test.

It was only a matter of days before my 3 year old decided it was a great idea to bust her lip open on the stairway (how, I don’t even know). Lucky for me, I had no ice in the freezer for her, so a frozen strawberry would have to do. Being a busy mom, I had forgotten all about the strawberry once her lip looked well and healed. I assumed she had eaten it up. I was wrong. Later that night I saw a nice puddle of red mush on my brand new rug, and we know the nice stain and mess a nice bright juicy red strawberry can make on our rugs, I was not impressed! But, this was my opportunity to test out that Family Friendly Guarantee, so I went to work. I was told that if I had a really tough stain on the rug that if I used a solution of 75% water and 25% household bleach it would make things easier (just making sure that the rug is washed off with as much pure water as possible to eliminate any residue or smell). I decided just to try some water and soap first. I was so worried that this stain would be the last of my beautiful new rug, luck would only have it that way, plus any other ‘claims’ about stains on my other rug made me doubt anything. With just a sponge and some soap and water and a little bit of scrubbing, to my surprise that ugly red stain came right out, with not a lot of effort on my part.

This has sold me right then and there on the Family Friendly Area Rugs that provides. We’re already searching for the next addition to our household to replace the ugly old rug tiles where the stains just sit and taunt us daily!

Check out visit the beautiful rugs, and bask in the glory of the Family Friendly additions and protect your floors with some plush, soft, virtually stain proof rugs that you and your entire family can enjoy without the wonder and worry of the next stain to pop up and be a permanent house guest. not only provides FREE SHIPPING on their area rugs, but they’ve provided my readers with a great discount.

You have written a good post...for area rugs...but when you’re looking for the best rugs area choose a cotton and wool blend fabric that are more durable than cotton, but still less expensive.
