There are many reasons to add a nursery rug to the baby's room. The perfect nursery rug can help ground the space, add texture and provide a soft place to land. Also, use a nursery rug to introduce pattern and color to the nursery design. And by the way, you can use a nursery rug to add warmth and character to the baby's room.
However, finding the perfect nursery rug can feel a bit overwhelming at times. Your options are truly endless when choosing a nursery rug—there are so many styles and sizes. Below are a few tips to guide your search.
First, always go with the biggest rug that will fit in the nursery. One of the most common design mistakes we see is when a rug that's too small is brought in and gets lost in the design. The perfect nursery rug should at least touch the front legs of each piece of nursery furniture.
Second, when choosing a rug for the nursery, consider the weave and the material of the rug. Look for materials such as wool, which makes clean-up easier because you'll likely get it stained at some point.
Finally, while a rug is a great way to introduce a pattern to the design, pay attention to the scale of the rug pattern. You want to consider the scale of the rug pattern to the size of the nursery and not overwhelm the space.
Ahead, we’ve assembled a collection of the best nursery rugs of 2022 that’ll inspire and help you choose the rug of your dreams for the baby's room.
