Tying any nursery décor theme together, rugs are a special way to add a touch of warm to any room. Whether it’s incorporating neutral colors for added softness under baby’s soon-to-be-exploring and crawling knees, or adding pops of highlighting to neutral flooring, rugs are the perfect accompaniment to nurseries.
Strategically placing a soft rug near a rocking chair will give parents’ tootsies much needed cushioning during long, sleepless nights of feedings. Additionally, studies show that children are drawn to bright, primary colors so adding unique designs, including colorful stripes, dotted patterns, argyle, forest scenes, trees, constellation charts or simply animal-style cutout rugs are sure to be of interest to any curious child.
For homes with hardwood floors in nurseries, adding rugs can provide much needed cushioning beneath the feet, especially when rocking an infant to sleep. With the myriad of floor coverings and rug patterns available for today’s nurseries, the only dilemma parents will face is selecting one rug … and really, there’s nothing wrong with adding a few for extra comfort, accent and dimension. Today’s rugs also coordinate with a variety of nursery themes, including popular safari themes, princess designs, western-styles or pirate themes.
