I received this product compliments of Lorena Canals Rugs in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Part of my Sanity Plan is to buy products that can be easily cleaned. With four kids running around, stuff gets dirty and I don’t have the time or the patience to clean things that are difficult.
I try to avoid anything with special washing instructions:
- Hang to dry
- Reshape and lay flat to dry
- Dryclean only
- Spot clean
Sometimes I forget to check and I am extremely disappointed when I discover I’ve bought something with one of these instructions. My rule even extends to baby gear… I always check to make sure seat covers can be removed and washed (usually needs to be hung to dry). Same goes for decorative pillow covers and throws. Can’t be cleaned with ease… it’s a no-go. Of course, I realize not everything can be, but I do my best to find products that can.
One of the things I’ve found very difficult to clean is rugs… rugs often need to be hand washed, with chemical cleaners, and the spots never seem quite the same after washing.
So, I was very excited to learn about the award-winning Lorena Canals Rugs. These rugs are practically designed with me in mind!
They are completely washable and dryable and even their larger rugs fit easily inside my washer and dryer. Clean up is so easy, which means one less thing I need to worry about the kids staining.
And this washable quality does not detract from anything else that you would expect from a rug. It is still thick and soft and plush. And the color is great! Since I added this rug to my daughter’s room, I still go in and squish my toes in the fabric because it feels so soft. I tried my best to capture it with my photos, but they just do not do it justice.
It was such a nice addition when we updated my daughter’s room décor. She is going to be 5 tomorrow and we wanted a more grown up style for her now that she’s not a baby any more. (sniff)
She loves all things ocean so that ended up being my inspiration for her room. And a rug was a necessity because we have never liked the salmon colored carpeting in her room. We decided not to replace the it because it seemed like a frivolous expense since it was in decent condition. So this rug, in it’s soft blue with waves to mimic the ocean, really draws your attention away from the underlying rug color.
If you have kids, you know that they often spend a lot of time on the floor, and my daughter is no exception. I love that this rug is so plush that she often grabs a book and lays on it to read.
Besides the easy clean up, these handmade rugs go another step beyond traditional rugs. They are eco-friendly, made with all natural dyes, and contain no VOCs. This makes me so much more comfortable with having it in my daughter’s bedroom… a place where she spends a good majority of her time.
Added bonus: I don’t have to think twice about laying the baby down on it while we read or play because I know that there are no harmful products in it.
I can already tell that this high quality rug will stand the test of time. Since she is the oldest of my three, it will likely get passed down to the boys at some point.
And when I was picking out this particular rug to go with her room, I fell in love with at least 6 other designs that were available. I love her whimsical designs with stars and clouds. If only I had more rooms to decorate. You can check out her other products here.
All in all, I was very impressed by this brand, and can see why it’s been popular with celebrities and high end baby shops, and featured in magazines like Elle and Vogue.
