If you want to make your kid’s bedroom or play space more engaging and fun, you can’t go wrong with a kids animal rug!
Kids love animals, which is why interior decorators and parents alike enjoy using them in children's rooms. Kids animal rugs are one of the easiest ways to bring some furry, feathered, or scaled friends into your little one's space. The best part? They're easy to replace if or when your kid(s) grow out of them!
Animal shaped rugs for kids are fun, particularly when you're decorating play areas, but you can also use animal prints and animal artwork.
The following ideas shed light on how a professional decorator might use kids animal rugs in a home:
Consider using different animal shaped rugs for kids room décor. This way, you can change them out seasonally and provide stimulation for your little one.
Use baby animal rugs in nursery décor or rooms for toddlers. These create a classic aesthetic and playful, soft energy.
If you want the décor in your kid's room to match the rest of the house more, you can use faux animal shaped rugs or animal print rugs.
A Closer Look At Kids Animal Rugs
When you're buying kids animal rugs, your options are endless. From playful animal shaped rugs for kids and infants to more mature animal print rugs that go with a home’s décor, this is your chance to have fun.
Animal rugs go well with similar décor accents around the room. For example, if you buy a pastel rug with animal art, you might consider a pastel wall trim with similar artwork.
The best things to pair a kids animal rug with are stuffed animals. These cozy friends can serve as pillows, tea party guests, wild animals roaming the floor, and excellent décor accents at the same time.
Is A Kids Animal Rug Right For Me?
If your little one would enjoy a kids animal rug, you'll find one that works for everyone. Older kids might enjoy a mature print instead of an animal shape, and younger kids usually love having fun on playful, artistic rugs with exciting shapes and colors.
Once you’re sure that an animal rug is what you want for your little one’s space, use a color picker tool to find a few options that will go well with existing colors.
Next, measure the room to figure out how big your rug should be. If you want the rug to pad the entire space, subtract two feet from both the width and the length to find the right dimensions for your rug. If you want it to define a space without existing walls, measure it accordingly to figure out the dimensions that would best serve your purpose.
Choosing The Perfect Kids Animal Rug
Enter your size and color preferences in the filters to narrow your search and start comparing rugs you like. Then, choose a rug your little one will love! If they're old enough, you can present the options you want to your kids and let them pick which one you buy.
Remember to buy a rug pad to add an extra layer of cushioning while keeping your rug in place.
