Before you buy a new rug for your child’s bedroom or playroom it is very important that you check the back for a non-slip surface. This is something that is very important; as if you just buy a regular rug there is a very high chance that it will spend a lot of time sliding around the bedroom. The kids may find this fun but it could be potentially hazardous, so make sure you buy a dedicated playroom rug with a high quality non-slip grip.



It is also important to make sure that the rug you are about to purchase for your kid’s bedroom or playroom is a low-pile. This means it will appear more clipped that a luxury deep pile carpet and will also be much easier to clean. As anyone with young children knows accidents are bound to happen so it is vital that a child’s rug is low-pile and very easy to clean.
