Obsessed with rugs like me? This post is for you! There’s something about rugs that really make a space feel finished. A nice sized area rug can help anchor the furniture in a room which creates a cozy, comfortable space. If it were up to me, I would have a rug in every single room of the house! (Mike hasn’t totally got on board with that idea yet, but we’re working on it… 😉 )
Today I am sharing all about my my newest addition, the Safavieh Casual Natural Jute rug from Overstock.com. I am so happy to finally be a part of the jute rug club! Woop woop!
I recently partnered with Overstock to make my jute dreams come true and I couldn’t be happier with my new rug! I have always loved the look of natural fiber rugs but was worried the texture/material wouldn’t be as great in real life as it looked on Pinterest. I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical on how a jute rug would hold up in our home (especially with a 75lb pup running around!).
But I am happy to report that this jute beauty is now my absolute favorite rug in the house.
In case you are on the fence, like I was, here are my favorite qualities about jute rugs and why this won’t be the last one I own:
1. Low Maintenance
Jute rugs are perfect for high traffic areas because they are great at absorbing dirt and crumbs without it showing. Meaning, they always look clean… even when they aren’t. With a dog (and let’s be honest, a husband), this has been a total lifesaver! I can’t speak for kiddos, but I bet it is a great option for their little messes too! 🙂
To clean, I just run the vacuum over it and it looks good as new! It’s a no-fuss way to keep floors looking cleaner longer. I use our Dyson vacuum with the brushes turned off and vacuum over it the same way I do the carpets. For harder to reach areas, the attachment with the brush end works great!
As far as spills and stains, so far everything cleans up really easily. I just follow the instructions in this tutorial here.
2. Cozy Neutral Texture
Those three words pretty much sum up my entire decor style. I love the texture that this rug has brought to our dining room while making it feel cozy at the same time. If you have a space that feels stark and empty, jute rugs make a great addition. Plus, their neutral look is a classic and practical option, making it easy to switch up your decor as much as you want. If you have an addiction to woven baskets (yep, me too!) jute rugs are like having that basket look spread out over your floor.
Natural fiber rugs, like jute, are an affordable choice when it comes to adding a rug to your space. The fact that it is a neutral option, as I mentioned earlier, makes it an inexpensive way to add big impact to a room. Overstock has a ton of options and their prices are very affordable. I always check their website first when shopping for rugs because their cost-effective prices allow me to get larger sizes for less! Plus, they offer free shipping on orders over $50 (and free shipping is ALWAYS a good thing, am I right?!).
This was the category I was most concerned about before my jute rug arrived. I was afraid the material would be scratchy and uncomfortable under my feet. But it’s actually the exact opposite! The woven texture isn’t scratchy at all and, in my opinion, it actually feels really good to walk on! The soft/firm texture almost feels like a gentle foot massage with those nubby knots. Don’t get me wrong, its not a texture I would want to curl up on to take a nap but it is definitely a comforting feeling under tired feet.
There you have it! I would 100% recommend jute rugs for your space. They are a great way to bring the outdoors in, and so far ours has proved that it can take a bit of a beating but still look good as new! Oh, and did I mention that Sage approves too? 😉
