Rugs are incredibly practical for a number of reasons. Of course, they perform a very important function in making the house look more stylish and they generally help to make your interiors feel warmer, but there’s more to them than that.
Take, for instance, the impact they have in children’s bedrooms. Rugs can be used as important insulation to make sure that kids’ bedrooms are cosy enough for them to feel comfortable. They also add colour and provide the kind of visual stimulation that is so important for toddlers. Since children’s rooms are also about play and learning, it’s great that rugs provide cushioning and noise insulation for when things get rowdy.
We’ve picked five of our favourite kids’ rugs that are ideal for toddlers’ bedrooms. We’ve tried to keep things gender-neutral so all of the following rug choices are perfect for boys’ rooms, girls’ rooms and shared bedrooms.
Wonderland rugs have something special about them. They’re the kind of rugs that look great in children’s bedrooms right from when they are babies to when they become young adults.

Not all rugs that look great and feel great in toddlers’ rooms have themes, designs and all the rest. Some are just incredibly soft and luxurious to the touch for tactile children who want very comfortable surroundings.
