This rug is a lot thinner than I thought it would be. You can likely get the same quality rug at Home Depot et. al. for around the same price, and have the benefit of seeing it before buying. I likely wouldn't have bought this if I knew it would be this thin. However, colors (black) are nice, and looks as if it will hold up with 3 kids and 2 dogs. Also, the rug's width is 7' 7.5", not 7' 9" as indicated - not a big deal for me, but could be for someone who is counting on exact measurements.
