Decorating Your Child’s Room With Area Rugs

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

It is so nice to decorate a child’s room and make it suitable for the kid’s age. Transforming a rather plain room into a bright, happy area for your child will mark his special place in the house. A wonderful alternative to expensive children’s decors are colorful area rugs.

With most children, a favorite character, star, or pastime is constantly changing. While it is difficult to change a wallpaper border or mural at the drop of a hat, a new themed area rug can let your child show what some of their favorite things are. Simply roll up the old one and lay down the new.

Some floorings that you will find for children’s rooms feature imaginative playtime designs, including bridges, highways, letters, maps and numbers. This can be a great learning tool for your child and they can have fun at the same time. You will also find many themed rugs for sports, which are always a popular choice for a little one’s room.

Using multiple area rugs for one room is acceptable. In fact, decorating with several colorful, multi-design ones are pretty to look at. In addition, there are more things to add happiness and fun to the room. You can even have matching curtains or comforters for a more coordinated look.

For children’s area rugs, it is better to choose those that have the advantage of practicality. Instead of having thick rugs, go for a low pile feature so that your child can play with his rolling toys trouble-free. Low pile is also easier to vacuum. Ideally, select area rugs with less than a third inch. No worries though. This kind is very sturdy and will survive the hyper-activities of kids these days.

The best materials for children’s rugs are nylon and polypropylene. You need not worry about harmful fabrics, as most children’s rugs are made of non-toxic materials safe for children’s use.

Girls will surely love area rugs with Barbie designs while boys will cheer with delight with rugs designed with sports or action figures. These are just two examples of the many themed area rugs for children. Their rooms will never be the same again. And it will always be exciting with each new area rug to decorate their place.

For the cost of an area rug, you can turn your child’s room into a great place to play or learn. Most are rather inexpensive and are very durable. Consider this alternative to decorating for your child’s bedroom or playroom.
