How to choose a rug for the nursery. When furnishing the nursery, remember that furniture should first of all be safe, stable, and should encourage the child to play, and later on learning.
The first step toward finding the perfect kids rug is choosing the type that will best fit your needs. Kids rugs vary in type from regular rugs, in that they are more interactive and involved than the type of rug a typical adult is searching for to enhance his/her home. Kids rugs are designed to inspire entertainment, learning, exploration and much more.
This is the most common type of rug coming in many shapes and sizes from round to rectangular, square to oval. It can be used in many rooms from the house or school from a bedroom to a classroom. This is good for the person who is either just looking for a way to cover a bare floor, or someone who would really like to add some fun to their childs life.
These are, as the name describes, rugs that are meant for the classroom. They can be educational, game-oriented, created with the image of a map on them or are one of many other variations. There are classroom rugs of all types, from musical to mathematical to alphabetical and beyond. They range in size, color and theme, but will always act as a tool to help to promote an inspirational learning environment.
Carpet Tiles, which are not to be confused by carpet squares, are an offering from Joy Carpets, Inc. that allow you to plan out the carpet to whatever specification and design you like. Carpet tiles are smaller sized square carpets that are placed alongside other tiles to form a carpet, and a unique design.
Coming in sets, carpet squares are the perfect idea for a fun and uniquely educational learning experience. Carpet Squares are squares of carpet that represent something specific, whether it be a number, animal, letter, etc. The squares can then be used in a variety of ways, from games to learning exercises.

With the type and style already chosen, you are just a couple of steps away from getting a wonderful kids rug. Now you simply need to figure out the specifications and features of the desired rug, and you are all set! Here you will decide the size of the rug, the color of the rug and the construction of the rug, while figuring out whether the rug needs a rug pad or any other finishing touch!
Size: Choosing a rug size is a crucial part of your purchasing decision. While the rugs we offer often come in a multitude of sizes, you will need to do some work on your own to determine the size of the area that will feature the desired rug. Smaller rugs typically serve as accent pieces that can be moved around frequently, while larger sizes are typically chosen to remain in one place because of their desired function. Though determining size is critical to completing your purchase, it is certainly easy enough! All that youll need is a simple tape measure, and an idea of the general area that will ultimately house your rug!
Color: Choosing color is a little bit easier to figure out as it is very much your personal preference. Just remember that the primary color is the back, or most prominent color in the rug, not the pattern color if there is a pattern featured. Naturally, it is sensible to try to match this color with the existing décor of the room.
Rug Pads: Purchasing a rug pad goes hand-in-hand with the purchase of a rug. Though they are not necessary, they are certainly recommended. Rug pads are a functionally sound idea if you are concerned about the upkeep of your home or schools floor, while also protecting the rug itself. Rug pads are designed to be placed in between the rug and the floor and serve not only as an added cushion on the feet, but as an extra protectorate to the room. Most importantly, rug pads help to reduce slipping and sliding, and thus reinforce the safety of any active child.
Construction: Construction is a crucial part to consider when shopping for a rug. Most kids rugs have similar constructions, in that they are designed to be easily maintained. They are usually designed with polypropylene, latex or some other form of protector/preserver to aid with the longevity of the rug, and to handle the constant use and activity on the rug.
