How to Create the Perfect Space for Kids

A child’s bedroom, or playroom, is one of the most well-used areas of the home so it’s important to create a warm and cosy feel that cushions bumps and falls as well as cutting down on noise made from the patter (or stomping) of tiny feet!

Colour, texture and detail all play a key factor in designing a child-friendly space. The right environment needs to be inspiring, creative, relaxing and comforting for little ones so it’s important to consider the flooring when creating this perfect room.

The advantage of having carpet in a child’s bedroom or playroom is that it provides comfort and warmth, cushions noise and is often budget friendly! 



Choosing a carpet doesn’t need to be difficult either. There are important things to consider – such as type, colour and price - but for a child’s space you should ideally be looking for a carpet that will stand up to all the knocks, accidents, spills, sticky fingers and general rough and tumble of family life. Shop for ranges that have been designed with ‘family life’ in mind - carpets that offer great practicality without compromising on style, and within an affordable budget.

New generation super soft carpets such as Cormar’s Primo Plus or Apollo Elite make the perfect pick. Both are made from polypropylene, a great family friendly fibre, that is easy to live with and simple to clean.  Dirt and stain resistant and bleach cleanable, they retail from around £17 per sqm.
