Over the years, I’ve shared a few pictures of the braided rugs we have throughout our home — but since I get SOOOOO many questions (and compliments) about them, I thought it was time for a full-length blog post just about our rugs!
NOTE: this post is not sponsored!
I’m honestly not sure if braided rugs are in-style, trendy, or even remotely popular right now, but I really like the look of them in my home! They fit my semi-primitive-country-farmhouse style and they add a nice pop of color to my otherwise very white spaces!
I like how sturdy and durable these rugs are, I like that they LAY FLAT and don’t bunch up or curl up on the ends, I like the old-fashioned vibe they bring to my decór, and I like that I can easily shake them out, vacuum them, or even just sweep the crumbs off the top with a broom!
The one downside of braided rugs is that they are NOT machine washable.
My rugs are darker in color, so they truly do “hide” a lot of dirt and stains! However, I have successfully spot treated stains with carpet cleaner, and we’ve had our rugs cleaned professionally a couple of times when our carpet guy cleans the rest of our carpets. But I can’t just throw them in the wash like I can with our smaller bathroom rugs.
We purchased all our braided rugs from RugsUSA.
The exact rug style/color we have are the Azalea Braided Green World Rugs from the Homespice Collection.
We purchased 3 of the 2’5″ x 6′ Oval Runners and 3 of the 2’3″ x 3’9″ Ovals.
We did NOT purchase a pad, but we do have this pad under most of our rugs to make them less slippery. I buy a bigger pad and cut it up to fit under our various rugs (you don’t need the pad under the entire rug, just a small section of the rug so it doesn’t slip)

We currently use these rugs in our mudroom, our kitchen, by our front door, and by the back door in our office.
We’ve had the same rugs for over 7 years now and we are not “gentle” on them. They are in high-traffic areas and they have held up really well.
The “thread” of our first mudroom rug did start to unravel about a year ago, so the whole rug basically came apart. I contacted their customer service, but since the rug was already several years old, they basically just said I needed to buy a new rug, which I did.
Overall, I am TRILLED with these rugs.
I LOVE the colors, the pattern, the design, etc. etc. They look so great in our home and we get compliments on them ALL the time!
How to get a Great Deal!
Usually, Rugs USA offers very good discounts (sometimes up to 60% off) every Memorial Day and every Labor Day — which is why I’m sharing this post now!
If you are interested in buying a new rug for any space in your house, now is the time to start looking! I have a feeling they will start offering discounts later this week and into next week.
We’ve purchased a few other (non braided) rugs from RugsUSA as well — including the one for Clara’s nursery which is SOOOOO soft!
Like I mentioned above, this post is not sponsored in anyway — I just wanted to answer some of the questions I get about our rugs, and share why I personally like my braided rugs so much!
Do you have braided rugs in your house? If not, what are your most favorite rugs?
