Pretend to fly the friendly skies on your kid’s airplane rug without ever having to leave the nursery or buy an expensive round trip ticket. While these stylish airplane shaped rugs are not exactly the same magic carpets made famous in the classic tale, One Thousand and One Nights, they can have a very magical effect in your kids’ bedroom decor.
RUGS FOR PILOTS For airline pilots, the interest in an airplane style of decor is professional. Who wouldn’t be proud to earn their living operating the controls in the cockpit of a plane? Many new parents who work for major airlines have shown a preference for nursery designs that focus on airplanes.
The first step in the decorative process is to buy bedding and window treatments with airplane print fabrics and cover the floors of the nursery with a colorful kids' airplane rug. For this couple, a large rug with pictures of airplanes flying on a field of blue sky with a decorative border will be perfect.
VINTAGE AIRPLANE ROOM RUGS Modern rugs covered in jumbo jets will not work in a room devoted to planes from years past. Airplane shaped rugs in designs taken from the famous WWII Flying Aces will be more to the taste of historians with an interest in vintage planes. Airplane rugs with muted colors are best to showcase a collection of leather flying helmets and flight goggles.
BEST AIRPLANE RUG FOR the BABY'S NURSERY If fighter jets and corporate airline logos fail to tickle your fancy for floor covering in the baby’s room, why not take a page right out of classic comic strips? Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron will lighten the mood and fall right in line with a kids’ airplane theme bedroom. You can your baby Snoopy rug with or without decorating the crib in a similar design as the neutral colors and design of the black and white beagle and his dog house will blend with many popular bedding sets currently on the market for boys. So long as you stay in keeping with the look and feel of the cartoon characters, you can have your airplane rug without hanging model airplanes all over the room.
SHAPES and SIZES Airplane rugs come as cut outs in the shape of an airplane or in standard shapes and sizes. If you have a large area to cover, a round or rectangle rug may be more attractive and visually appealing than a small airplane shaped rug. On the other hand, if your nursery is small a small play mat or rug in the area where the rocking chair or crib is located may be all that’s needed.
