- 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.
For baby girls, the trendy colors range from bright, funky yellows to royal purple. For a baby boy's nursery, contemporary abstract designs are considered stylish in shades of brown combined with turquoise blue and green.
