The 20 Best Nursery Rugs

A lot of thought goes into designing nurseries. After all, there’s the visual, decorative components and then there are the practical aspects like furniture and storage. However, there’s one facet that branches over into being both decorative and practical: the rug. Choosing the right rug for your nursery comes down to what style you want your rug to convey and how it connects to the room’s overarching theme and style. Beyond that, it’s important to consider how durable the rug is and how it can meet all of your practical needs. If you’re not sure where to start your search for the best nursery rugs, don’t worry--we’ve compiled some of our top nursery rugs for you.
