Best Pirate Theme Rug Selections for Kids

Add some adventure to your kid's room with a pirate theme rug. Pirate rugs come in all shapes and sizes both big and small that will fit the shape of your bedroom or nursery and take a plain floor from one that's boring to a surface that teams with possibilities for story time and adventure.

A pirate rug will add an interesting dimension to wall to wall carpet as well as keep it covered until your children get a little older and the likelihood of purple grape juice stains and orange baby food spills is somewhat diminished.

As we know factory applied stain protection on most carpet is not foolproof. Sometimes an ugly spot is left behind even after the spill is wiped up to the best of our abilities. This is one reason that I think that kids rugs are the best thing to keep baby’s bedroom looking fresh and new. They are so cheap and easy to replace plus they camouflage the inevitable multi-colored accidents that are bound to happen. Do you really want to have to police your child and constantly interrupt their play dates dabbing at dots that might or might not leave a mark?



Once you have the basic layout for the nursery and a set of pirate baby bedding in mind, it's time to dress the floors and make them seaworthy and ship shape. The best pirate rug for your floor may not have pictures of Blackbeard the Pirate or in the shape of a pirate ship.

Of course if you are designing a bedroom in honor of your favorite football or baseball team that happens to be named "THE PIRATES", then that's an altogether different decorating concept and a rug in the ball team's colors might be the best we can do.

Of course you have to pick an area rug in a color that won’t clash or fight with the fabrics in the comforter or crib set. Even if you find great colors, take care that the patterns, pirate motifs and prints are compatible as well.

Here are some ideas for pirate rugs for your kids’ pirate theme rooms:

  • PARROT AREA RUGS - What pirate ship or pirate worth is salt would be caught dead without an exotic parrot?
  • ANCHOR RUG - A round rug with an anchor motif in the center or a rug in an anchor shape
  • TREASURE CHEST – How lucky would you be to find a pirate theme rug in the shape of a treasure chest full of gold coins, precious jewels and other booty?
  • ANTIQUE MAP RUG - A rug in a map design. An antique map rug whether it’s a treasure map or an old map of the world, what could be better so long as the colors are neutral and complimentary to your room’s color scheme

Most young parent’s budget is stretched very thin. So if your budget is tight here are some ideas and instructions on how to make your own cheap pirate theme rug or treasure map rug that you can customize to match your pirate theme baby bedding perfectly.

Go to a carpet store or your home decorating store and buy a cheap carpet remnant or bound discount area rug in the right size and color for your kids bedroom and stencil your pirate motifs and designs on it using fabric paint. Some sharks, dolphins, palm trees or a compass would be cool on a pirate theme rug. You can make your own stencil designs or you can go to the stencil department of your local discount store and buy some stencils.

You can stencil your own antique treasure map directions on it with an image of a treasure map at the end of the dashes and landmarks or turn the plain piece of carpet into a floor sized Jolly Roger pirate flag.
