How to Design a Children’s Nursery with Cozy Carpets
Being a new parent is exciting! But, it also comes with many responsibilities, like building a nursery for the new family member. Designing your child’s room can seem like a daunting task, however, it can also be a really fun experience for you and your partner. Once you have decided on the color and theme of your baby’s room, you will want to choose the correct flooring solution. Area rugs and carpets are good options, as they protect your kids from scrapes and bruises while offering great aesthetic appeal. You can choose from several cheerful designs and colors that stimulate your child, and create a warm, relaxing environment for them to play in.
Choosing the Perfect Rug for Your Rugrat
Babies and toddlers spend a good deal of time on their backs and knees. So, you want a flooring solution that can provide ample cushioning and protect them as they learn to crawl and walk. Carpets made of natural fibers are safer for nurseries, so opt for cotton or jute. Wool and sisal are also great nontoxic, hypoallergenic choices. When choosing wall-to-wall carpeting, go for dense cut pile or loop pile carpets as they are easier to clean. Considering an area rug? Thicker, low-height loop or cut piles are the way to go.
How to Clean my Carpet
Before you decide on the type of carpet for your child’s room, consult an expert on nontoxic agents and safe cleaning methods. Carpets are a wonderful addition to any child’s room, but your child’s safety should always come first. Preventative measures should be observed wherever possible. Luckily, there are some kid-friendly, nontoxic cleaning alternatives like blotting paper, club soda, cornstarch, cornmeal, vinegar, and baking soda. Talk to a professional about less harmful cleaning agents before choosing your carpet.
Natural, tufted options work great as rugs and area carpets for new nurseries. If you have gone with a neutral color scheme, why not choose a bright carpet to add a pop of color to your nursery? Or if patterns are more appealing, go with a nature-inspired print that will delight your new baby as they learn to crawl. With the right flooring solution, you will be that much closer to designing a space where your little bundle of joy can feel happy, relaxed, and inspired.
