Back-to-School Rugs!

It’s the start of a brand new school year and that only means one thing: It’s time to recreate your classroom with a splash of bright and vibrant colors! Although there are many things you can do to redesign your classroom, the addition of a new rug can be a centerpiece that can change the overall appearance. Looking into designs from Mohawk Home’s selection of kid-friendly styles is one of the first ways you can begin your search to a new look! Because it’s all about making sure your students are comfortable, it’s important to look for a few of these characteristics when searching for a brand-new rug:

  • Is it bright and colorful? Appearance matters and there is no room for dull colors when it comes to a learning environment!
  • Is it soft? Kids should be comfortable when sitting on it. Soft material will help their bottoms stay cozy. (Tip: Look for nylon or protected fiber – many of the rugs from Mohawk Home are made with some type of soft fiber!)
  •  Is it durable? We try to create the most high-quality innovative rugs to meet your needs, so you can be stress-free!
  • Size? We have different sizes to meet every classrooms needs. Just make sure to pick the correct one!
