Carpeting certainly makes a lot of sense if you are trying to decide on a flooring option for a child or baby's room. It's provides warmth and padding for falls and can be a comfortable place to sit, crawl or lie down. Unless you have a child that suffers from allergens that can become caught in the carpet fibers, it's really a great idea.
There are, however, something things you will want to keep in mind in deciding to carpet a childs room.
Choose a fiber and style that will be easy to clean. All parents know that spills are a part of life for children and toddlers and unless you have a rule that no snacks or drinks are allowed in their room, there will be spills.
Consider safety issues. Wool is naturally resistant to fire, but it is also one of the most expensive carpet types. You can also find carpet that is less likely to carry allergens, are stain resistant and the options go on and on. Make a list of what your major concerns are before you begin shopping.
- Pick a color, design or style that will grow with your child. You may not mind changing the carpeting in a couple of years if you have the money to do so, but not everyone want to undergo that type of job so soon. Choosing a carpet that will be appropriate for years to come will rectify that problem. Remember that you can put out throw rugs, play rugs and so forth, that can be moved around and washed.
Aside from these tips, remember that regular maintenance such as vacuuming and cleaning up spills immediately can help prolong the life of your carpeting.
