Why Your Carpet Choice Matters
Keeping your kids safe is a big deal. Kid-friendly carpets are made with materials that provide extra cushioning, which means fewer boo-boos when they play.
Tough and Durable
Kids can be hard on carpets, with spills, stains, and lots of running around. A durable carpet can handle all that action and save you money in the long run.
Easy to Clean
Let's be real, kids can be messy. You need a carpet that can take a beating and clean up easily. Choosing an easy-to-clean carpet means your home can still look good, even after a kid-made disaster.
Different Types of Carpets
Picking the Right Style
When it comes to carpets, you've got options. Plush carpets like cut piles and shag are super soft and cozy, perfect for kids. They also hide footprints and vacuum cleaner tracks. Loop carpets like Berber have more texture or patterns and keep looking good for a long time.
Choosing the Perfect Look
Colors and Patterns
The way your playroom looks is important too! You can choose from all sorts of colors and patterns to make a fun and exciting space. Talk to one of our Design Services experts or use our visualization tool to see how different colors and patterns would work in your room.
