The softest carpets for your nursery
Make your nursery a warm nest for your baby. A nursery area rug should either be big enough to anchor your major furniture pieces or small enough to sit independently of them. If you’re working with hardwood floors, it’s always best to choose a larger rug, ensuring that the front legs of your crib and other large furniture pieces overlap the carpet’s edge by at least a few inches.
Dressing an existing carpet? Choose a rug that fills the empty space in your little one’s room, leaving a few inches between the edges of the rug and the furniture.
Consider your priorities. If durability is high on your list, opt for a strong, washable synthetic. Worried about toxic residue? Choose an organic fiber like cotton or sisal. If you can’t decide, a wool rug is always a good bet. Organic wool is hardy and easy to clean.
Tip: Fabric density is a good indicator of quality and durability. Before you buy, try this quick test: Dig into the rug with your fingertips. The harder it is to reach the bottom of the mat, the better the quality of the rug.
