Top picks for a child’s room

  • Rugs with your child’s favourite cartoon or a personality on them. As your kids grow, they will want their own room and their own rug, to stimulate their senses and express their personality. So, a rug that shows your child’s favourite TV character or has vibrant colours will be perfect for their bedroom.
  • Educational rugs: you can buy rugs with games boards, puzzles, or other learning activities on them.
  • Rugs that can withstand the rough and tumble of a child’s life: they should be cleanable, anti-allergy and resilient. Children can be messy. Therefore, it is best to buy a rug that is resilient and will stand up to everything that your little one throws at it.
  • Colourful and vibrant rugs. Will the colour of the rug show dirt?
