My husband and I are somewhat obsessed with projects in our home, especially when we can make small changes that make a big difference. We are getting ready to put our home on the market and relocate to a different part of Ohio so we have been tackling little projects to increase the value of our home and one room that we decided to update was our den. It had old almost maroon colored carpet and the walls were painted red. The trim was in rough shape and the registers for the heat/air were terribly outdated. We set a budget of $1,000 to completely refinish the room and we are so excited with how it turned out.
First we pulled up the ugly carpet and laid engineered wood flooring in it's place. We used paint and primer to take the red on the walls to a neutral gray color. We also purchased new vents and painted all of the trim a fresh coat of white paint. Some of the trim was looking pretty bad so we replaced those pieces.
It's really amazing what you can actually do on your own. I am extremely fortunate that my husband is so handy because he saved us thousands of dollars that would be been spent on labor so we had funds to do other things like update the lighting. We took the blinds down and added new curtains and created a nice seating area that the family could enjoy but the big WOW that totally changed the room was the awesome rug that was sent to us by Mohawk. I love all of their flooring options but I have been a huge fan of their area rugs for a really long time (we have Mohawk rugs in almost every room of our home) so we were so excited about getting this rug for our new room. This rug is the Mohawk Home Strata Jerada Printed Rug and it's simply spectacular. It's such a high quality rug which is super important as this is a heavy traffic area in our home and the print adds color to the room and creates a warmer overall feel to the room. We absolutely love the finished product and so do our little's as you can see below.
This project took about a week to complete but we are just absolutely in love with it. It turned out so good and I can't wait to tackle our next project which will be the kitchen/dining room. We will definitely be looking for another Mohawk rug to finish that room as well. They have so many prints for just about any style and the quality can't be beat. Maybe that's because they are still made in USA!
Be sure and leave us a comment below and let us know what you think. Do you like the new look?
