Type of the room – While buying rug you should take in to consideration the type of room it is for. If it is for a kid who is still in the cradle, then you should remember that there is time for your kid to grow up but before that there is crawling, learning to walk and a lot of falling so choose a rug that is thick and can protect your kid from getting hurt and also gives them the comfort. But if your kid has grown up take their choice in account as it is their room and they would prefer it as per their choice. Girls generally go for gentle colours where as boys like bold colours but never forget that your kids room is also a part of the house it should not stand out completely from the rest of the house.
Material of the rug – While shopping for rugs make sure you look into the material you will choose as you cannot spend on rugs every now and then so, the durability is very important. The most common fibers used in rugs are nylon, wool, and olefin. Nylon is actually the best option for a kid’s bedroom as it is not only durable but also resists soil, stain, and fading. Wool definitely has an elegant and luxurious look and feel but it is appropriate for older kids’ rooms or for baby nurseries. It holds up to foot traffic pretty well but has a moderate soil and stain resistance. If you want to make the room look more luxurious and rich, you might prefer opting for shaggy rugs as it will give the space a special, gorgeous vibe.
When you are choosing area rugs for your kids’ room make sure to opt for colorful options as it will bring your kids’ space to life and give your kids the reason to have fun and enjoy the time they spend in their rooms.
