Because rugs take up a large portion of the visual real estate in a room, the one you choose can set the tone for the look you’re going for.

That’s why when you find a rug that’s a perfect fit with your nursery theme, adds the right punch of color to the playroom or creates a super-soft landing spot, it feels like a major win. (Here are tips on how to choose the right-size rug for your room.)

To quickly hunt down the just-right one for you, check out these great rug shops.

Best Washable Nursery Rugs

There will be absolutely no crying over spilt milk when you have a Lorena Canals rug. Just throw the all-cotton, flexible rug in your washing machine anytime you need to clean it. The rugs come in a wide range of designs from Moroccan and Aztec-inspired to ABCs to textured neutrals. One thing: You need a pad under these for cushioning and to keep the rug in place.
