Shopping for our children can often be a minefield of possible headaches and more than the odd argument, but it needn’t be that way. As long as you do some forward planning and use a little common sense, the whole experience can be rather uplifting. When it comes to choosing a rug for your kid’s bedroom, we can easily cut out a lot of the fuss and tears by following some basic rules. Please check out the rest of this article if you’d prefer smiles to tantrums!
Just look at the size of the room you are dealing with and the ideal rug size should come to mind pretty swiftly. Use a tape measure to mark out the space you want to fill and you’ll be getting there pretty soon. You can also mark out a size up and a size down just in case the store can’t match your original requirements.
Most of us will automatically go for a rectangular shape, but the room may have other ideas. A square rug may suit the floor a little better and you could even consider a novelty shape instead.
If your kid’s room has wooden floors, it may be cool to go for a softer Shaggy rug, as these add a lot of warmth and the contrast creates a nice visual feature. You could use the rug to define a play area in the bedroom, in this instance you should think of a smaller sized option. If your child has a lot of friends coming over to play, choose a more resistant material to deal with the potential traffic.
This is where the fun should really begin, and quite often you can forget about the previous sections altogether. Your child will really want to have some input with regards the design and theme of the rug choice. Just remember that they will be the ones who have to look at the rug each and every day, so let them have some artistic freedom here! It is always better to let them decide, but also be aware that they may get bored of this year’s Toy Story or Ice Age favourite pretty quickly.
It’s always best to check your online options before making a final choice. Rug Zone can offer a myriad of fun and practical solutions so why not give their website a good look before hitting the high street?
