Family Friendly Friday–Rugs

Here are my top 3 picks for rugs that make the cut for Family –Friendly Interiors

For a More Modern Look – Flor Tile

They are easy to use, replacing one tile if stains are bad is a lot easier than replacing your whole rug.


If you want a more Relaxed Look – Indoor/Outdoor Rugs

Having a rug that keeps up with high traffic areas is a definite must. An indoor-outdoor rug is the best choice…

For a more Traditional and Upscale Look – Binding a Carpet

One of my favorites is to use carpet and bind it. There are a lot of great choices out there and cleaning is so much easier than with most standard rugs. Pattern and  medium and darker colors are best, they don’t show dirt and minor stains as much.

Where do you have carpet binded?  Some rugs stores and carpet companies should have a reference or may do it themselves.

This is one of my favorite go-to’s Stanton Carpet

Happy Decorating!

Imagine walking into your living room to find your toddler covered in marker along with your furniture! My daughter's "Marker Art" was a defining moment. It was then that I reinvented my business to find the very best family-friendly furnishings and solutions for my client's homes.

My blog shares the very best of what I have learned about family-friendly design these past 18 years.
