When decorating your child’s bedroom or playroom, it is important not only to match your taste, but match their taste and to make the décor fun and engaging too. But how can you achieve all three? Our friends at Rug Mountain have written a handy blog post for us to inspire you with three popular ideas that will be loved by all! If you like what you read, check out the children’s rugs section on their website for those listed and more.
Bright colors are known for bringing a positive feel to a room, and a happy and creative energy. This means your child’s mood will be improved and they will be inspired to play more – perfect for those more difficult little ones! Parents will be pleased to know that bright rugs can suit both dark and light décor, but it is important to accent colors where possible. For example, if there are secondary green elements, these should be matched with furniture or wallpaper. This will make the rug fit in and help the whole room look attractive and professionally designed. Overall, bright colors are fun for everyone, and make everyone in a room feel much more positive and more at home. Try yellow for a classic, or pink or blue as gendered options.
Every child loves animals, which is why rugs with animal designs are perfect for evoking imagination when your little ones are playing. They are fun and can improve a child’s mood instantly, whilst giving them characters to include in their games or stories. Of course, this is pleasing to parents who want the best for their child, but it is also convenient in encouraging them to play in that one area! This means you can get on with housework and other jobs knowing they will be entertained for hours. Animal rugs often have multiple colors and patterns, meaning it is easy to accent them with other colors in the room so the rug fits in much more – but be careful of using too many patterns elsewhere in the room if there is a strong pattern on the rug. Of course, there are many different animal designs, from owls, to tigers to fish, meaning there is something for every child.
Round rugs are perfect for creating a specific area for playing in, by creating a warm and soft area that can evoke the imagination of your child. There is less slip risk due to the lack of corners, as well as a longer lasting rug, so everybody wins! If you establish the rug as a play area, there will be less mess elsewhere in the room, making cleaning up much easier for you too. The many available colors of round rugs help you match the piece with the rest of the room, meaning that this rug will fit in well and enhance the effect of the décor and colors it accompanies. Try to use matching colors or contrasting colors based on a color wheel for best results. You can make the rug more appealing to your child by choosing one with designs that – similar to animal rugs – can evoke imagination and create characters to be used in stories and games.
As you can see, rugs can help make a child’s room more fun and engaging, as well as making the room look more attractive for everyone! Improve your home by buying a rug today.
