This article covers choosing rugs for children to suit their tastes and style. It covers matching colours to existing decor in order to cheaply update a room and ways to use rugs in shared rooms to give each child a bit of individuality.
Children have very varied and fast changing tastes, so keeping up with their tastes and the latest trends can be difficult as well as expensive and if you have children sharing rooms it may be difficult to keep them all happy. Rugs can be a quick and easy way to update rooms and add a more grown up style as your children grow up and become young adults
Match Their Tastes
Young children often have favorite cartoon characters that change on an almost daily basis; if your children have a favorite that lasts a little longer than that then you can choose children’s rugs to go in their bedroom that will theme the room without costing a lot. Match the rug with a duvet cover set and maybe some pyjamas and slippers and you have a happy child without too much expense or redecorating and when that particular character goes out of style, a change to the new fashion is quick and simple. Little girls often like princess themes and pink; there are plenty of pink fluffy rugs with matching pillows that will make any little girl happy. For boys, there are rugs with roads on them so that their whole floor can be turned into a racetrack; of course there is no reason why boys can’t have the princess rugs and many little girls will prefer the racetrack.
Let Them Mark Their Territory
As your children get older you can let them get involved in the choices for decorating their rooms; this lets them feel more in control and as long as you keep an eye on them the damage shouldn’t be too bad. Give them a budget and help them decide the best way to spend it; if you charge for your time redecorating you can generally persuade them that a paint job isn’t necessary and a few new soft furnishings or wall hangings will make a big difference. Children’s rugs tend to be inexpensive as the suppliers know that they are generally a temporary thing and so the focus is on price and if the quality isn’t great then it doesn’t really matter for a quick change of style. If you have two children sharing a room that can’t agree, just let them split it down the middle and decorate each side in the style of their choice, making them feel that they each have a say.
Childrens rugs can make updating a child’s roomquick and cheap and allow for the constantly changing taste that most children have. You can theme the new rugs to your child’s favorite characters, or just add a splash of color.
