When it comes to material, you want some durable but also soft. The best option is a high pile because it provides comfort and fluffiness to a room. If you're on a budget, cotton rugs are a great option that will provide lots of comfort. Wool rugs are highly durable while also being soft. A great stain-resistant choice is a polyester rug, which won't fade in colour. Loop rugs are great for adding texture with no shedding. Shag and woven rugs are other excellent options for texture with comfort. If you want to go for a natural fibre, you can go with cotton, wool, or jute.
A bed centred in a room does well if the rug is placed underneath the bottom of the bed. A twin-sized bed does well with a 165x115cm area rug, with the bottom of the bed sitting on 12-24 inches of the rug. A double-size bed works well with a 220x150cm area rug and will leave 9 inches of rug on each side of the bed. If you have the bed set in a corner, you can opt to put the rug on the side of the bed paired with a nightstand or get creative and place it diagonally under the outermost corner of the bed. The size of the rug depends on the room size and what area you are looking to cover. Measure the open space you want to fill and then go from there.
Talk with your child about their favourite colours or work with existing colours when deciding on a rug. The most important thing is that they love the rug, making them feel good. You can choose a rug that either complements or contrasts what is already within the space. Consider the colour scheme of the room when selecting a rug. A solid rug is an excellent option to calm the area if the room is already filled with different colours and patterns. If the decor is neutral, consider a colourful design to add cheerfulness to the room. Keep in mind that bold prints and dark colours can be great for covering up any stains.
It's essential to place a non-slip rug pad underneath the rug to prevent bunching. If a rug bunches, it can quickly become a hazard for your child.
