How to Choose a Rug for Your Kid’s Room

You may think that choosing a rug for your kid’s room is an easy task, but things aren’t so simple as they seem, as there are different aspects to consider when trying to find the perfect one. The easiest thing to do would be letting your kids choose the rug they like. If you do that, be sure that the rug will probably be to their liking, but will serve no other purpose. In order to find a rug that will be both beautiful and functional to the space, here are several tips on what to look.picture 1 of rug

Size and Type

The first thing to consider when purchasing a rug is its size. This solely depends on how much space is actually available in your kid’s room. Another thing to consider is whether you want a low-pile or high-pile rug. The former are a better option if your kids have a habit of running all over the room, so place it just in the center of the room to cover the biggest empty space. On the other hand, if your children spend most of their time on the floor playing with toys, reading and similar, a much better choice is choosing a high-pile option, as it will provide more comfort and cushioning under the feet.

In a recent chat with a highly-rated retailer of kids rugs, it was brought to my attention that children mostly enjoy non-conventional shapes, such as flowers, animals and cars. There is also a variety of rugs that come in classic geometric shapes (circles, rectangles, squares and triangles). Just make sure that the shape you choose will be compatible to shape of the room.

Color and Pattern

Fortunately there is a never-ending assortment of rugs of different colors, patterns and images. Perhaps the best idea is to let your children choose this element by themselves. Children are very visual so incorporating a rug that will simulate their imagination and creativity is a very important part of choosing the right rug. You can find different motives such as flowers, animals, sports, cars etc. all depending on what your children love. There is also an option of purchasing a rug with their favorite cartoon character that they will absolutely love. There are also interactive and educational rugs that allow your children learn numbers and letters while playing on them.11162762524_502a573118_z
