How a Kids Washable Rug Can Highlight your Room Decor
Kids washable rugs are as creative and beautiful as kids are. Whether you’re decorating a nursery or you’re looking to give your preteen’s room some style, you can find a machine washable kids rug perfect for you.
Decorating with a Kids Washable Rug
Your kids washable rug can be as subtle or as bold as you want it to be. Some rugs come in distressed and faded styles that work well in more homey designs, while others have bright and bold colors that youth tend to gravitate towards. Your rug can either compliment an existing color scheme or serve as the basis for a color scheme you create.
Choosing which Kids Washable Rug is Right for You
When you’re shopping for a kids washable rug, there are a few areas you can think through to help you narrow down your search.
Position: How you position the rug can vary from space to space, and it can vary depending on your kid’s age and what they enjoy doing in their room. Here are some guidelines.
Nursery/Toddler’s Room: In rooms for young kids, you can always center the rug in the middle of the room. If you have a larger, open area in your nursery, it’s natural to place the rug right in the center so that it serves as the focal point and from a practical standpoint, it’s an area where your kid can play and explore their room.
Preteen/Teenage Room: You can still center the rug in the middle of the room, especially if the bed is off to the side. However, you can also use a layout you see in many adult rooms and guest rooms where the rug is either centered completely beneath the bed or under the bottom ? of the rug.
Size: The size of the kids washable rug is obviously dependent on the overall size of the room, but the position of the rug also plays into the size. For example, you may want a larger rug if it’s all the way under the bed versus if it’s only under the bottom ? or elsewhere in the room.
Shape: Most kids washable rugs are rectangular or round, but you can also find shaped rugs like a flower or semi-circle. The key thing to consider is that the shape of the rug can affect the overall tone of the room. Round rugs tend to be softer because of the rounded edges, while rectangular rugs can feel more sophisticated. Of course the design on the rug itself plays a big part in the style of the rug, but don’t underestimate the shape of the rug and its impact on the tone.
Pattern: The pattern of your machine washable kids rug can be anything from classy teen to jovial youth. Bold, defined patterns can fit well with outgoing and excitable kids, while distressed patterns can be more soothing and relaxing if your kid is easy-going and informal.
Colors: Finally, the colors of the kids washable rug is a huge part of the rug’s style and tone. Some rugs will show off bright and vibant hues, while others are muted and subdued. And then there are plenty of different color combinations depending on whether you’re looking to fit into a particular color scheme or not. Whatever look you’re creating for your kids’ room, you can find a rug that suits your needs and fits your style.
