Nylon Frieze is one of the most durable types of rugs and is an excellent choice for a living room with kids. It can withstand children, pets, and even heavy foot traffic while still looking fresh and is comfortable to sit and walk on without leaving traces. Wool or nylon Berber is another great type of Berber that is also highly durable. Cotton rugs are also a great option for children's living rooms as they can be easily washed to reduce allergens.
To determine the best type of rug for the children's room, it is important to consider a combination of carpet characteristics. When designing a children's bedroom, it is important to invest in a high-quality rug with antimicrobial and sound-insulating properties, as well as machine-washable rugs to further protect the carpet. Nylon rugs are very resistant due to their synthetic fibers which hold their shape well, especially compared to other materials such as loop-shaped Berber carpets which can be easily attached. When choosing a rug for children's rooms, it is advisable to invest in a carpet fiber that offers excellent stain resistance and that lives up to the price range.
A more discreet option such as a rug with loop-shaped fur and a multi-level rug will offer greater durability, stain resistance and wear resistance, as well as being easier to maintain when cleaning dirt, mud and spills. The Scotchgard spray used for furniture can have environmental hazards, but the Scotchgard applied to the carpet during manufacturing surrounds each individual fiber to protect the entire carpet from stains and dirt. Dark brown and black rugs usually make dogs' hair and crumbs appear more easily than medium-shade rugs. Triexta rugs rival nylon rugs in terms of strength and abrasion resistance but with better resistance to natural stains and a softer feel.
For the children's bedroom rug, it is best to choose something fun and whimsical as parents often re-arrange the carpet in children's rooms once they are older or have completely moved out. The more expensive and luxurious fiber carpets should be reserved for the master bedroom and living room.
