Alphabet Rugs

ABCs for underfoot

When I started looking at alphabet rugs to go with an alphabet themed kids bedroom, I was surprised how many of the options looked like something you’d put down on a preschool classroom floor. Nothing wrong with that. If you have a lot of kids, a lot of traffic or a lot of space to cover, that might be a great option for you.

But a little unique style, colors that aren’t always bright primaries and soft pile sometimes are what you are after. So here are options for you to consider that work with a variety of color schemes and even with non-alphabet bedroom themes while still bringing letters to the floor.

Hand carving makes the animals and letters stand out
Brightly colored animals and objects help your child associate letters with words. The carved letters create a two-dimensional look and feel that stands out. Warm background means dirt won’t show as much either!

The one might be a play carpet (already breaking my own guidelines) but the bright colors and clever design give it a leg up on most. It’s made from nylon, so it won’t be that soft, but it is non-toxic, non-allergenic and stain resistant. Good qualities in a kids rug!

Wow – that’s a very different color scheme!
With its extra high pile and hand carved design, this rug offers a quality option. And the color scheme here is awesome. I would pair it with more subtle colors in the room with bright splashes rather than a brightly colored room.
