KID AREA RUGS
When choosing a kid area rug for a childís room, there are many factors to consider: the decorating theme, the area to cover, the colors needed, price, and age and special needs of the child.
The theme chosen for the childís room will determine the components needed to carry off the look. A kidís area rug can contain or complement this theme. The kids area rug can be floral, plaid, or full of fish, hero characters, or animals. Kids area rugs are a terrific patterned alternative to expensive wallpapers and custom paint techniques. Even with the plain white walls that are often necessary in rented homes and apartments, these kids area rug designs can instantly spark up the look of a child's room.
Since kids area rugs come in many shapes and sizes, they are a great way to
define a space for the child to play, read, or just hang out on the floor. Kids area rugs can be square, round, oval, or rectangular. Use them to fill in an area left open in the room by furniture placement to make it cozier.
The color variety of kids area rugs make them a great decorating tool. Pick a kids area rug that is vibrant and colorful then use these colors throughout the room as the color scheme. This would look good with white walls, or white and one accent wall in a color pulled from the rug. Another option is to choose a kids area rug that is more muted. The wall paint could be chosen from the rug colors to make a more monotone scheme.
Price is also an important factor for a kids area rug. The kids area rug must fit into the decorating budget. Consider the most sought after luxury in homes around the world. Wool rugs are considered the best possible choice money can buy and make perfect sense for a childís room also. They are long lasting (most antique rugs are made from wool), durable, and have a beauty no synthetic can match. And with a kids area rug being a smaller size rug, the cost of wool and quality is reasonable. But if the budget just does not allow for a kids area rug in wool, there are many synthetic ones available.
The age and special needs of the child must be considered when choosing a kids area rug. For younger children, play rugs are a good option. These kids can change their minds about what is their "favorite" thing. Whereas you might think twice about removing themed wallpaper or painting over a custom mural, it's a pretty easy decision to just roll up a themed area rug and put down a new one as your child's interests mature. Play rugs are a good option, too, for kids who change their minds about what is their "favorite" thing. Whereas you might think twice about removing themed wallpaper or painting over a custom mural, it's a pretty easy decision to just roll up a themed kid area rug and put down a new one as your child's interests mature. These kid area rugs lend themselves wonderfully to fanciful playtime, with designs that include roads, highways, bridges, and planets, as well as colors, letters, numbers, maps, and more.
For older children, a more traditional pattern kids area rug would make sense. Choose one that could go into the teenage years with just a few changes in paint colors and bedding.
