Kids Area Rugs

Buying a rug for your child’s room involves more than just finding a beautiful pattern and stylish design. Kids’ bedrooms and playrooms are high-traffic areas, and your rugs need to be ultra-durable while creating a fun, vibrant place your kids can enjoy. 

When choosing a kids’ area rug, you need to consider your child’s age, lifestyle, and how easy it is for you to clean the rug.

At Rug Goddess, you can choose from various ultra-soft and long-lasting kids’ rugs. They are available in multiple styles that add color and personality to a room.

How to Choose the Best Rugs for Kids

When you have children, you want to choose durable and user-friendly rugs that can withstand wear and tear from constant foot traffic and playtime. Adding a rug pad under a rug is a great way to keep your children safe from slips and falls. But children can be messy and spill things on their rugs, so the rugs need to be stain resistant.

Here are some other factors to remember when selecting an area rug for your children.

Rug Material Quality

High-quality material ensures that your children’s rug will last. Polypropylene material, also known as olefin, is a synthetic material known for its sturdiness and stain resistance due to its non-absorbent fibers. Rugs made with polypropylene can withstand heavy foot traffic and are easy to clean with a vacuum or a damp cloth for spills.

You should also consider polyester rugs since the material can also resist fading and soiling and are machine washable. These rugs can handle rough play, spills, and stains, making them ideal for high-traffic areas like living rooms and kids’ rooms.

Always buy a high-quality area rug pad when purchasing your kids’ area rug. Although non-slip backings are effective, a pad adds an additional level of security so that the rug stays in place on the floor.

Size and Shape of the Rug

When shopping for kids’ area rugs, choose models based on their size and how they will fit into the room where your children will be sleeping. For a kids’ bedroom, the rug should be wide and long enough to accommodate the bottom ⅔ of the bed and extend 6” to 8” on either side.

For a playroom, you need a larger area rug if your kids play on the floor often because it will provide more room for them to play on with their toys, and the soft pile and rug pad can provide shock absorption for rough-and-tumble games.

Colors and Patterns

The rug pattern is another essential consideration when buying children’s area rugs. It can complement their room’s existing color scheme and design to create a cohesive room theme. You can also look for a rug with contrasting features like bold colors and patterns to add some excitement to their room.

Rug Texture

The rug’s texture should also be comfortable for your child. Keep in mind that the rug not only serves as a floor covering for your child's room, but it will also provide warm and soft cushioning to their feet and body.

Flatweave rugs are ideal since they do not retain dirt, dust, or food crumbs. However, a soft shag rug can provide a soft landing in the event of a trip or fall.

Best Ideas for Area Rugs for Kids

Area rugs for kids can be a great way to add a playful tone to the room and add comfort. Here are a variety of ideas to decorate your kids’ rooms with area rugs.

Embrace Pattern Play

Rug patterns, shapes, and other features may keep the child entertained and stimulated while they play. For instance, if your child has a blue-and-white bedroom, you could buy a rug with blue, white, and green geometric shapes.

You might want to think about buying a playful and floral patterned area rug for your child's room if it has similar floral patterns and bright colors on its bedding. This type of rug helps create continuity throughout the room.

Go Bold and Bright with Colorful Playroom Rugs

Multicolored rugs may overwhelm a room as colors may clash with their furniture, wall art, and other decorative accents. The key is to choose a rug color that coordinates rather than contrasts the other colors in the room. Try rugs with analogous colors or shades in the same warm or cool tones as the main color in the room.

Colorful rugs can encourage children to use their imagination and creativity when playing with toys on the floor. It can also embellish and illuminate a child’s room with neutral walls. A multicolored rug with stripes will allow your children to explore and expand their creativity through drawing, coloring, and storytelling.

Add Nursery Rugs

With the crib, changing table, and nursing chair in the nursery, an area rug can tie the design together and provide a coherent aesthetic. You can choose a neutral color such as gray or brown if you want your kid's room to blend in with the rest of your home. A neutral area rug can make it easier to match other furnishings in your home as your child grows.

You can also choose bright colors like pink or blue for nurseries with colorful walls and drapes. These types of rugs are great for adding splashes of color to add more personality and visual interest.

If you want a modern twist on classic nursery color patterns, you can choose rugs with tribal designs. Playing on these rugs would be a wonderful tactile experience for a baby due to their shapes and textures.

Get Comfortable with Shag Rugs

Shag rugs are made with a combination of polyester fibers to create a fluffy texture that is soft underneath. They come in different styles and colors to match any décor.

The rug’s surface is usually plush enough to cushion falls, especially if you have babies or toddlers gaining the ability to walk.

Create Learning and Fun with Area Rugs

Choosing rugs with letters and numbers in your kids’ playroom will help them learn while having fun. Children will love the colorful and fun designs of these rugs that feature their favorite shapes and animals. These rugs will make your child feel special and help them create memories in their playroom or bedroom.

Area rugs that feature shapes like circles, squares, and stars can teach kids about shapes. If your child loves animals or is interested in marine life, consider a rug depicting their sea creatures. Rugs showing letters or numbers can help your young children learn the alphabet and how to count.
