Choose a rug that can grow with your child.

As your baby grows, your nursery rug will transform from a decorative piece to a floor space for playtime. That's why choosing a rug with durable yarn and non-slip backing is important.

Make cleaning easier with an area rug.

Wall-to-wall carpet can be tricky to maintain and clean. FLOR's modular area rug solution makes cleaning stains or replacing a damaged tile easy.

Go with a low pile height.

As charming as a soft, fluffy rug may look in a nursery, a low-pile rug may be easier to clean and maintain.

What Size Rug Is Best for a Nursery?

  • For hardwood floors, choose a larger nursery rug big enough to anchor the furniture in the bedroom with the front legs of the crib and dresser or changing table placed on the rug.
  • Choosing a modern nursery rug with design in mind? Pick an area rug small enough to open up the room, allowing for a few inches of space between any furniture and the rug.
  • Still unsure about the size you want? Use painter’s tape to visually mark the size of the rug to help you decide.

Three Stylish Nursery Rug Ideas

Whether you’re dreaming of a modern nursery rug or a timeless style, let the theme and tone of the nursery space guide you.

Soft and Sweet

If your nursery features soft tones and patterns, pick a neutral rug or a pastel color to match. For more visual interest, choose a textured style.

Nice and Neutral

If your nursery is simple and neutral in style, choose something bold that will bring a pop or two of color into an otherwise bland space.
