Start with the shape and size of the space in which you’re working. For a kids’ bedroom, you may opt for a rectangular rug next to their bed or dresser. For a larger playroom, an oval or round rug can cover more space.
Many of our kids’ area rugs come in fun educational patterns that blend learning into playtime. Choose a colorful rugs that incorporates the alphabet or the names of the 50 states to place on a playroom floor. These rugs help young children learn and recognize letters and symbols from an early age. We also carry rugs designed with sports scenes,joyful phrases, play towns and more!
Other options for pattern on a kids’ or nursery rug are solid colors or abstract patterns to match other design elements in the room. If you’re using vibrant, patterned fabrics on beds, windows and walls, opt for a solid color. If your design is simpler, a patterned rug can add some visual fun.
Finally, be sure to select a rug made with soft, comfortable, durable materials. This will create a more forgiving surface for playtime. Many of our kids’ area rugs are made from soft EverStrand fibers and come with non-skid backing. Additionally, you may want to opt for a washable rug that will be better able to handle messes and accidental spills.
