New mothers love pink area rugs with patterns of bunnies, flowers and/or bows for a baby girl's nursery and baby blue nursery area rugs with puppies, horses,airplanes or other masculine designs for their baby boy's room.

Compare a hard, bare floor to one covered with a soft nursery area rug and you will quickly see the decorative impact that the right rug can have on both the looks and on the comfort level of the baby's room. The floor as well as the walls are an excellent opportunity to design and decorate that should not be overlooked.

Nursery area rugs are more stylish than ever before not only because they provide baby with a soft place to play, but because make such a contribution to the design of the space.

If you have chosen a theme or a color scheme, you're ready to shop for an area rug. You will find them in most of the top baby themes and colors reflected in new crib sets seen in the stores at any given time. Many styles are unisex or gender neutral such as the ABC rugs, jungle rugs, dogs or cartoon characters that will work for both baby boys and girls if you would rather avoid baby blue or pink rugs that are very gender specific.

For baby girls, pink nursery rugs continue to rule but we also see area rugs used in other colors ranging from bright yellow to royal purple. The same goes for baby boy rooms, blue nursery rugs continue to dominate the scene but we see an increase in the use of area rugs with abstract designs as well as earthy shades of brown used in combination with turquoise blue and green. SHAPE AND SIZE
Size and shape is just as important as the color and style of nursery rugs as you will have to pick what will work with your baby nursery decorating ideas, nursery themes and decor. You have the standard options of round, square but your childrens' room might call for something in an octagonal shape or even a narrow carpet runner. Whether you will be using your nursery rugs as decorative accents in front of the rocker or at the bedside, when the rug will be used in a nursery there are concerns that might not come into play when decorating an adult's bedroom. Kids rugs should:
  • have non-slip rubber backing
  • Be flame retardent
  • be washable
  • be sturdy enough for a child's play mat
Shag rugs or braided area rugs are lovely but difficult to clean so they may not be the best option for a kid's bedroom. If your baby suffers with allergies, wool area rugs (unless your baby is also allergic to wool), manufactured without irritating chemicals or dyes might be an option. Check to see if the rug has had stain protection or mothproofing applied. Wool is naturally flame retardant so there would be no need to apply a flame retardant to the fibers. If you are concerned with air quality in your home, but enjoy the comfort of carpet a wool rug may be for you. The only drawback with non-allergenic wool area rugs would be that they are not very colorful. Nylon area rugs are another option for the nursery as well as the kitchen because they are strong and stain resistant. However, keep the pile low because a shaggy round area rug might be cute the first day or so, but after that the maintenance that it takes to keep it looking fresh might outweigh the fashionable look.
