Sometimes being mum can be hard work, and it can seem there is just one job after another. However, we can help you with one of your jobs: finding the right rug for your child’s bedroom. If you take account of the considerations below then you are much more likely to make the right choice!
Firstly, it may be a good idea to let your little one have a part in the decision making process. They may want a rug that represents their favorite cartoon character, or a scene from their most-watched movie. The may even want a rug that can double up as a games board, or that can be used as a puzzle. The key is that your child will want something that expresses their personality, and your choice just may not be the right one. After all, trends move so fast, even when it comes to what kids like.
As well as this, there are a bunch of practical considerations that you should take into account when you are buying a rug, and some of them are listed below.
- Is it cleanable? Rugs that are wool or polypropylene tend to clean more easily.
- Will the rug show up stains? We suggest a darker color that won’t sow up a multitude of sins!
- Will the rug be kind to your kids skin? Again, natural fibers such as wool are probably better for this, and they are much less likely to set off allergies.
- Is it soft and luxurious enough to be comfortable? This is perhaps most important for very young children who may have just begun crawling.
As you can see, there are a number of things to take into account when choosing a rug for your child’s room. However, take heart, as we are always here to help you make the right choice!
