We’ve lived in our house for almost 8 years now. During that time our garage (previously converted to a family room by the previous owners) has seen a lot of life. It’s been a game room for my husband, a family room, and more recently an office/homeschooling room. When Evie came along, we added playroom to the mix. You see, 8 years ago this house was perfect for us but as with most things, we’re beginning to outgrow it. We keep going back and forth on whether we should just add on to this house or move into something bigger. I put off updating the room for the last 8 years because lately we just weren’t sure. We’re still not, but a few weeks ago I just couldn’t deal with the hideous paint any longer. I never had any motivation or inspiration in the room and it needed to change. After all, I spend a good part of our day in here. I started by painting the room a light gray. Then a funny thing happened I actually liked the room again. I found a rug I loved and added a rug pad from RugPadUSA and it’s actually coming together into a room I want to be in.

After 8 years of a love/hate relationship with this room, I couldn’t stop. I cleaned out the toys that the kids are no longer playing with. I cleaned out my desk area and set my son to work on his area and pretty soon, I started finding my inspiration. Now I want to spend time in there, instead of looking for reasons to work in the living room or the kitchen.
This is actually the only room in my house that has hardwood flooring and since it gets a lot of traffic, kids playing, I want to make sure I’m protecting these floors as best I can. Back when it was a “sports” room, we had a nice Dodgers rug for my husband but it constantly slipped and moved around especially when the kids ran through the room so I knew I needed a rug pad for this new one.
Once I settled on the rug, I had to decide on a rug pad. I wanted something that was going to protect my floors and my new rug and I wanted quality so I turned RugPadUSA.com.
They took the guesswork out of finding the perfect rug pad for my floors. The buying guide right on their site helped me narrow down the choices and pick the perfect rug pad custom cut for my new rug.
Rug pads from Rug Pad USA are eco-friendly and do not contain Phthalates and other toxic things that can negatively affect indoor air quality. Since we spend a great deal of time in this room, this was important for me. I don’t want us breathing in toxins throughout the day.
The rug pads are made in the USA and are made to stay plush year after year so you don’t have to worry about them going flat. Don’t worry about them damaging the surface of your hardwood floors either, The rug pads won’t star or strip any floor or finish, a common issue with low-quality rug pads.
I went with the Contour Lock since it offered a strong grip with cushion with bulking. You don’t even know a rug pad is under there until you step on it and feel the cushion.
Since my toddler’s toys are in this room, she spends a lot of time out here and loves the new rug and rug pad. It’s so cushiony soft, she even fell asleep on it.
It’s funny to think that something as simple as a new rug pad started me on loving this room again.
