Useful Tips About Baby Rugs

by Guy Dinay on Apr 1, 2014

There are thousands of reasons why you should place a rug in a nursery room. For one, if you have a new carpet, without a doubt, you'd want to protect that against baby messes and spills; and a rug would be of great help. Likewise, it could also hide old or undesirable flooring or carpeting in a rental, making it look more presentable throughout. A lot of baby rugs are washable, and you'll rest assured that it has lesser toxins and allergens compared to a traditional carpet. They offer a safe place for a baby when it comes to walking and crawling-- since it'll cover the traditional slippery floors like hardwoods and bamboo. Moreover, they eradicate the noise of loud footsteps, allowing your little angel to sleep peacefully without any forms of disturbance.

Rugs Enhance The Room's Design

From a decorative standpoint, baby rugs make a huge difference, and there are several reasons behind that. A rug could make a room blend perfectly by just simply adding a dab of color. It could also add a hint of worldliness, or neutralize a room that appears a little sodden. There are a lot of colors, themes, and textures to choose from. The options are endless, especially if you'll look at an online store.

Before Picking A Rug, Consider Possible Allergies

When choosing a rug, the design isn't the only thing that you should consider. Hence, you should think about what it's made of. There are several choices available for consumers, such as wool and other organic fibers. They're more expensive, but they also give off fewer toxins. Also, they last longer, appear more elegant, and an environment-friendly choice for your humble abode. Nonetheless, synthetic rugs provide more designs, less expensive, hold more vibrant colors, and are more washable. If you're planning to buy a new rug and worried about it giving off VOCs (volatile organic compound), you should open it up and let it sit in the basement or garage for a couple of weeks. This will allow the rug to put out the toxins naturally.

Place Rug in a Safe Area

Even though shag carpets appear soft and comfy, that doesn't imply that they create a smooth surface for babies to play on. Thus, there's still a possible risk that the fibers would come loose and go into a baby's mouth. When buying rugs, it's advisable to make sure that it's made of continuous fibers. The reason behind this is, spin fibers have more tendencies to break off and could cause a choking hazard for infants. Furthermore, woven rugs are either Berber or cut. This could be an ideal choice, but it costs more and parents would usually have second thoughts before making this purchase.

Another attractive option for a baby's nursery is braided rugs. Even though they don't offer the same durability, they're easier to wash; and are usually made from affordable organic products. Keep in mind though, rugs are known to attract and hold on to allergens like dust mites.

Lastly, choosing a washable rug and rinsing it regularly-- usually every two weeks or so, is the best precaution you can do to prevent the accumulation of allergens. Aside from that, take note that large plush rugs hold on to more allergens compared to rugs with a lower pile. Likewise, most rugs that are made from organic materials are usually thinner. Therefore, they're healthier since they only hold onto fewer allergens. To properly care for your rug, it's important to vacuum it at least once a week. As a responsible adult, never put your rug in a place where it could serve as a tripping hazard for toddlers.
