What size should one opt for and what are the alternate ways in which a rug or rugs can be placed into a child's room?

The size of the carpet you’ll need for your nursery depends on the size of the nursery and the set up. A nursery area rug should either be big enough to anchor your major furniture pieces like the cot ,rocking chair or a study or it should be small enough to sit independently under them. One can also use a smaller rug to highlight a specific item or area, such as the crib or create a cozy reading corner.

If you have a bigger space , then two or more coordinated rugs can be clubbed to accentuate different items or areas in a room.

Its always good to choose a larger rug, ensuring that the front legs of your crib and other large furniture pieces overlap the carpet’s edge by at least a few inches. In that case the infant will be always safe as carpets have a shock absorber property and will take the impact if a child happens to fall by chance.

How should one coordinate the rug with an existing room decor or a set up ?

Before choosing a rug for your room, step back and ask yourself what’s missing from your room design. Have you used enough colour or patterned elements? Can you point to a variety of texture? Once you’ve identified what’s lacking, try to fill in the gaps. If you’re working with a largely neutral palette, opt for bright coloured rug for an accent.

 

If the room already has a bright coloured story with bold coloured furniture and accessories , opt for a neutral base rug to balance the setting.
