We are considering this kids rugs for our daughter. What should we take into account when buying? How do you choose a rug?

Make sure you are aware of the space you have for the rug - I think that goes without saying, but kids rugs are a tough one. You want something that's easily kept clean - at least that is what I would want. Therefore, light colours such as white and cream would be a no go as they would quickly end up looking brown or grey.

I'd also be thinking about the design, and for how long it would be age appropriate. I think it also depends on how much you are willing to spend and/or how much time you want to have before you have to go out and buy another.

The light in this image is all wrong, but I quite like the idea.

Attractiveness and ease of cleaning. Also, after bad experiences in my old house with a carpet moth infestation I couldn't get rid of I prefer artificial fibres in rugs because bugs won't eat them.
Price would ne at the top of my list and then getting something I think will match the room. I would prefer a rug where the pattern patyern is woven through rather than printed.
Size 1st.

Then colour & design (most important).

No use loving a rug, and they don't make it in the size you need.

Then price....If it is expensive, you can save for it.

I absolutely adore the rug in my pic.
