The carpet is an essential element of the decoration of a baby's room or a child's room; a covering which will come to dress the space and bring comfort to the room of your little one.
Rêves et Merveilles has selected a large number of rugs with different universes to match all styles of decoration. Our favorite is the sublime carpets of the French brand VARANASSI which are unique pieces woven by hand in India.
There are a multitude of rugs available to decorate your baby's or child's room. Certain characteristics come into play in the choice of a carpet, such as the material it is made of or whether it is machine washable or not. Choose the material of your carpet according to the style you wish to adopt in your child's bedroom but also according to the type of need.
The wool carpet is ideal for giving a warm and cosy effect to your child's space. The wool carpet is a healthy and biodegradable option. A good way to combine fabric quality and visual aesthetics.
Cotton rugs are very popular with children and parents alike. Cotton offers a very pleasant external sensation due to its softness to the touch. The particularity of a cotton carpet is that it is generally a washable carpet which guarantees a longer life and an optimal ease of maintenance by being machine washable.
The bedroom carpet can also be made of acrylic. Made from a weave that is said to be mechanical, acrylic offers you a children's bedroom carpet that is easy to maintain, comfortable and above all soft for your children's little feet.
Children's rugs made from polypropylene are characterised by a number of qualities that are highly appreciated in children's bedrooms. Children's carpets with resistant capacities that give a non-tear, odourless and non-toxic carpet, it is ideal for your children. These children's rugs are recyclable due to their multiple functions. They can also be made to look different: smooth, shiny or flexible.
Usually mixed with polypropylene, these two materials combine perfectly to give a carpet that is easy to clean. Suitable for children who often tend to stain what they have around them.
Be careful with the material of the child's rug. It will affect the comfort of your carpet in the baby's room and the atmosphere in your child's room. Also choose a material that is not conducive to storing all the dust and thus avoid risks of allergies for your children.
- The size of your children's rug should be taken into consideration. You will determine the desired dimensions according to the size of your child's room and the space you are willing to devote to it. The layout of the furniture and the design of the room will also affect the size of the rug.
According to some studies, the size of the rug should fill at least a quarter of the chosen space. This will enhance both the room and the rug.
Choose the largest size for a large space. A large playroom or bedroom is ideal for this type of rug. However, if you choose a rug that is too large for your child's room, it will overload the space and clutter it up.
- The colours
Be strategic in the colour of the rug and its design. Choose a rug that matches the rest of the room and will enhance the space.
If your toddler's room is small enough, opt for light colours with a white or ivory rug. These tones will give the room a sense of grandeur. On the other hand, a dark rug will blend in perfectly with a large children's room. It will enhance the space and harmonise the different elements.
If your child's room is based on neutral tones, you can play on more originality in the decoration. You can opt for colourful and lively rugs that will energise your space and bring relief and style to your child's room.
If your child's room already has strong elements, we advise you to choose a more neutral carpet.
- The shape
Various shapes exist to meet different needs and aesthetic choices for your child's bedroom: you can find in our selection of rugs rectangular, round, square or with more original shapes with animals such as a leopard or a bear. Also a racetrack rug, perfect to entertain your child for hours, this rug will be as playful as decorative.
The rectangular or square children's rug is ideal for the centre of your child's room. It will fill the space if it is large. More original shapes exist like the BONTON rugs selected by Rêves et Merveilles which have zebra shapes that will go very well in an exotic decoration, under your child's desk.
Little advice: under your child's bed, install a round carpet which will warm up his feet when he gets out of his bed. In order to make your mat non-slip, it is sometimes useful to put an underlay under it to prevent your child from slipping out of bed.
A children's rug can be used to cover the floor of your child's room. It will warm up the room and your kids' feet.
It can also be used as a fun play mat in the playroom or as a play mat in your baby's bedroom. Some original mats can be used as a play mat, such as a circuit mat. As a play mat, this covering will absorb the shocks and falls of your children's toys.
