One thing that we can all agree upon is that rugs tie a room together.
Rugs are the room's best friend. They feel nicer to walk on, play on, or sometimes even take a nap on. Also, they feel soft under your feet and are very comfortable.
Rugs also play a significant role in uplifting the design of the room. It anchors and beautifies the space, making the room look complete.

Rugs feel easier on feet. They provide a warmer feeling and improve the indoor climate of the room. We can ourselves feel the difference while walking in a room with or without a rug.

Carpeted Flooring Vs Wooden Flooring
Are you trying to choose between a carpeted flooring or regular flooring with an area rug on top?
Well, if you want a carpeted flooring, choose a single color and break the monotonous color scheme by adding shag rugs (furry rugs). They add a beautiful look to the room and are multi-functional. You can also put a colorful patterned rug and place it in a way anchoring the furniture.
And if you are considering a regular flooring, you can always place an area rug according to the setting and theme of the same.
Hence, you can go for either or both.
Tips to remember when styling a rug in a playroom
These tips would help you to create an ideal play-space for your child.
Tip 1: Oversized Rugs
The playroom for kids is usually not a very big area. You can use an oversized rug to make the playroom look spacious and larger (you can use this tip for any other space too).
Stripes also give an illusion of making the room look bigger.
Tip 2: Layering Rugs
I love the concept of layering. It is super-chic and tasteful, and a lot of people seem to enjoy this idea. Layering rugs helps you to add color, mix patterns, and whatnot? This concept is very relevant for the playroom (kid's room) as the element of color is the beauty of a playroom. You can play with various patterns and sizes while layering.
Tip 3: Dark-Colored Rugs
Usually, rugs in darker shades and intricate patterns provide a nice illusion for stains. I recommend going for such rugs for spaces like kid's room, playroom and kitchen. It also takes time for them to get visibly dirty.
Therefore, if you have a light-colored carpeted flooring, you can choose a darker shade rug (to place on top of it) for the most used area in the room. Like, maybe, near the sitting area or couch.
The Bottom Line
Rugs are comfort and luxury at the same time. They protect the flooring and enhance the outlook of the space. Every room in the house needs carpets, whether it is a nursery, a playroom, or a bedroom. When choosing a rug for playroom, make sure it has a warm and fun element in it since it's the place where the child spends a fair amount of time.
Keep in mind the size of your room, which rug would best complement the furniture, the budget, and the material you like (choose a child-friendly material). Avoid using jute or sisal rugs since they're not as smooth.
I hope with the help of these suggestions and tips, you can decide on the best rug for the playroom.
