Let's look at how to choose a rug for the nursery!
Whether I am decorating my own home or a nursery for a client, I absolutely love using rugs to anchor the space. I believe that a rug sets the tone for the entire room and helps create a well layered space.
Picking a rug though, can be an overwhelming design decision. And, if you are choosing a rug for the nursery, it's even harder considering all the other factors involved.
So here's what you really need to know when choosing a rug for the nursery.
HOW TO CHOOSE A RUG FOR THE NURSERY
A shag rug can be extremely comfortable and exudes luxury but will need to be regularly cleaned and maintained.
A shorter pile rug tends to last longer than a longer pile rug and is much easier to care for since they can be vacuumed regularly.
The nursery rug should be big enough to anchor the main furniture pieces in the nursery. Ideally, at least the front legs of the crib, nursing chair, etc should be on the rug.
A smaller rug can be used to highlight a specific piece of furniture.
If you are looking for a durable rug go with with an organic fiber rug like cotton, sisal or even a wool rug.
A bold rug in an otherwise neutral space makes a big statement and helps anchor the room.
Muted tones are definitely timeless and complements other furniture or accents in the nursery.
A great rug can transform a nursery. So use a rug in your baby's nursery decorating to keep the room feeling cozy and refreshed – no matter its size or style.
