I am so excited to be teaming up with Lorena Canals rugs today to bring you revolution for your children’s playroom or bedroom! Before we had one of their rugs, food was a big no-no in the playroom not to mention drinks! The kids looked at me side eyed when I told them they could watch a movie and eat popcorn in their playroom the other day but happily went along with my idea. With kids, it’s just expected that a mess will happen and you learn to prepare for it verses letting it ruin your day. Now that they have this Lorena Canals rug in their playroom, I’m not afraid of them eating a snack in there! Reason being is because these rugs are WASHABLE! Yes, I said that right! This company keeps in mind children and how they generally function. Making washable rugs is SUCH a brilliant idea and I am so glad that I found them and they are now a part of our home. Now that the kids have this rug in their playroom, they have had watercolor painting sessions, played with play-dough, eaten snacks and drinks, and crafted with glue, ON THE RUG! Once they make a spill, I just take the rug and fit it into my washing machine, add detergent and wash on a regular cycle. During their movie, Harper, spilled her drink (go figure) and it wasn’t an issue because of the ease of clean up!
I also love the Lorena Canals brand because they use quality materials when making their products. Their website talks about their process; “Our rugs are made in northern India using the Hand-tufting technique. This process allows the production of strong, high quality rugs made of natural materials such as New Zealand wool and 100% natural cotton. Hand-tufting offers many options in terms of color and design.” When Nolan was little I remember having a rug in his playroom that wasn’t made of good materials and it shed everywhere… so much so that it ended up finding a new home in the trash. The fact that this company uses natural materials makes me so much more comfortable having the kids constantly on it because it’s anti-allergen, free of toxic dyes and throwing it in the washing machine without fear of messing it up. Keeping toxic chemicals out of my family’s lives is a BIG deal for me so finding eco friendly products is always a score in my book!
I picked out the Topos grey rug with white polka dots. The kid’s playroom is neutral and I like that it works perfectly with the décor they have in there. I layered it with a shaggy rug for a cozier feel. Head over to the Lorena Canals website and see what rug works with your lifestyle!
