Best Rug Size For Nursery

| Team Tumble

The task of decorating a nursery can be daunting, especially for new parents, as you strive to create a comfortable and safe, yet beautiful, space for your child. A focal point of decor in every room, including nurseries, is the rug, which not only adds a decorative touch but also provides a soft and comfortable surface for your little one to play on. But, with this comes the debate of which is the best rug size for nursery rooms and why are Tumble’s machine washable rug designs the best choice?

Tumble’s Spillproof and Machine Washable Rug Technology

Our machine washable rug designs are great for every room in the house, but especially for your nursery. The unique spillproof material of each of our machine washable rugs makes them perfect for combatting the accidental spills and messes that come with having little ones roaming around while the machine washable rug structure makes cleaning up after playtime a breeze for parents! 

Tumble Offers Non Toxic Nursery Rugs

When it comes to your baby’s first bedroom, we know how crucial it is to ensure the environment is safe. That’s why non toxic nursery rugs are a must-have in your home. When designing our spillproof and machine washable rug technology, we made sure to test the spillproof technology in accordance with United States Safety Standards and California’s Proposition 65 which requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. This means that our non toxic nursery rugs have been tested for harmful chemicals which are commonly found in waterproof coatings. 

Our non toxic nursery rugs and non slip rug pads have been tested to meet or exceed the US safety standards for the following chemicals: PFCs (including PFOA and PFOS, which are found in waterproof coatings), VOCs, BPAs, common heavy metals such as Lead & Cadmium, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Formamide, and Dichloromethane (found in other washable rugs).

Tumble’s Non Toxic Nursery Rugs Use Non Slip Rug Pads

As your little one crawls around exploring their new world, it’s important to ensure the non toxic nursery rugs in the room won’t slip around underneath them. That’s why all Tumble rugs come with non slip rug pads! With its unique puzzle piece, ¼” foam, non toxic and non slip rug pads, every Tumble machine washable rug is both functional and cushioned under bare feet. The corners of your rug fit around the corners of the non slip rug pads, ensuring there is no lifting or curling at the edges. So, you’re left with an ultra-sleek area rug that feels as great as it looks!

Best Rug Size for Nursery Rooms

Using non toxic nursery rugs to cover the entirety of the floor space

Covering the floor space with non toxic nursery rugs will allow your little one to have a cushiony space to explore as they learn to crawl and eventually walk. When following this design style, the best rug size for nursery rooms depends on the size of the room itself. A good rule of thumb is that you should be able to place your rug underneath the front legs of each piece of furniture (crib, rocking chair, changing table, etc.), leaving about one foot of space between the edges of the rug and the wall. Ensuring there is one foot of space between the wall and the rug will help avoid making the room look cluttered and overcrowded. 

Using a machine washable rug as a layering piece

Layering a smaller machine washable rug under the furniture in your nursery is a great way to add a dynamic design element when choosing the best rug size for nursery rooms. This is most commonly done by layering a rug underneath the crib. Doing this will allow the rug to extend beyond the furniture, allowing the design of the machine washable rug to remain exposed on the floor without committing to covering the entirety of the floor space. 

Using a runner rug size for nursery rooms

A runner rug is great if you’re looking for a rug to cover just a small portion of the nursery. For example, a runner rug is a great size for placing directly in front of your nursery’s changing table. Not only will a runner rug provide just a subtle pop of design for the room, but it will also allow you to have an extra cushioned surface area to stand on as you get your little one ready throughout the day.
