When considering a make over for a child’s bedroom, you probably focus on things like wall coverings, colours and furniture. Flooring is often way down the list, but simply adding a soft, colourful rug to a bedroom is an easy and affordable way to instantly give the entire space a lift. It also adds a comfortable, padded area where kids can sit and play.
Different Types of Rug
When deciding what type of rug is best for your space, there are several factors to consider. What is the existing flooring like? If the room already has a soft, deep carpet, a rug probably isn’t necessary and wouldn’t sit nicely on the floor. If the room is carpeted with a thinner, hardwearing carpet, a rug is a great way to add softness and a comfortable play area for your child. If you have a wooden or laminate floor, you’ll find most rugs should be a great match and will have a lot of freedom when it comes to styles, patterns, colours and piles as everything goes with wood.
If your kids tend to spend a lot of time playing in their room, and there’s the constant risk of knocked over drinks or muddy feet slipping past you and up the stairs, you probably won’t want to invest in a luxurious hand-finished rug. Machine-made rugs may well be your best bet as they are generally more affordable and will be able to withstand the foot traffic of a much-used play area. Machine-made rugs are also available in just about every colour and style under the sun, so you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect complement to the bedroom decor.
