Choosing a carpet or rug for your classroom is not a daunting task. There are many variables and selections to choose from. There are several things you may want to consider when choosing a rug. A few highlights come to mind when considering a rug for classrooms and they are, classroom size, how many children will be in the classroom, what are the colors I would like to compliment, and does my classroom have a theme? These are all questions that are easily addressed. Once you have these questions answered the task of choosing a rug becomes easier.
Classroom Size- One important variable to consider is classroom size. Is the rug going to be small enough or large enough to fit inside my classroom? Is there enough space to accommodate a nice new rug for children to play and sit? We recommend using a tape measure to provide a reference for yourself to obtain a better idea of the right size needed for your classroom.
How Many Children- Another important variable to consider is how many children are assigned to the classroom? A classroom with 30 children will need a larger rug than a classroom of 20 or less kids. With a larger rug the kids are not bunched in too tight during story time and instances when the entire classroom is grouped onto the rug.
What colors to choose- There are many colors of rugs to choose from. Its best to make an attempt to compliment the colors that are already in the classroom. Often times a solid color rug may be an appropriate selection.
Classroom Theme- Many classrooms have themes. It is very nice to compliment a classroom theme with a rug that further exhibits that theme.
