Favorite Rugs for Kids Bedrooms and Nurseries under $250

Genevieve and Georgia turn three in less than two months! (And are already acting like three-nagers eek!) I am brainstorming ideas for their updated shared “big girl” room and one of my first decor items I’m looking at is a new rug. Rugs are a great way to add change to a space with minimal effort but with major impact! I’m sharing my favorite affordable rugs for kids bedrooms, playrooms, and nurseries all under $250! 

Check out some of my favorite rugs in my home in my A Beautiful Tropical Romantic Master Bedroom Makeover post and Modern Coastal Glam Kitchen Makeover post!

Favorite neutral rugs for kid rooms and nurseries

I've rounded up my favorite rugs for kid rooms, playrooms and nurseries. These gender neutral rug options are affordable and versatile for shared boy and girl bedrooms, playrooms or gender neutral nurseries

1.Ivory Shag Rug 2. Multi Color Shag with Fringe 3. Black and White Chevron Woven Rug

4. Jute Hand Woven Rug 5. Black and White Zig Zag Shag Rug 6. Ivory Medallion Rug with Fringe

7. Diamond Trellis Tassel Ivory Rug 8. Tufted Pom and Fringe Rug 9. Connected Stripe Rag Rug

10. Modern Tribal Shag  Rug 11. Hand-woven Ivory Rag Rug 12. Multi Triangles Shag Rug

Rugs are one of my favorite affordable ways to add change and refresh a room! And I can’t wait to start updating Genevieve and Georgia’s room from nursery to big girl room. They have already decided that they can’t stay in their cribs any longer (they climb out almost every night – and we usually find both of them in the same crib giggling and singing together!)  

Their walls are a lavender purple color and I will likely leave them the same color. I’m eyeing several of the ivory + black rug options (#5, #7, and #11) to add to their big girl room for some visual interest and depth. Adding touches of black to a room always helps ground the space, especially if all the other colors used are light and airy!

Favorite purple rugs for girls rooms and girl nurseries

I've rounded up my favorite purple rugs under $250. Perfect for little girl nurseries, girl rooms and tween rooms, guest rooms and laundry rooms!

1.Wool Lavender Ivory Rug 2. Vintage Medallion Lavender Rug 3. Lavender Modern Vintage Rug

4.Geometric Lavender Wool Rug  5.Lilac Polka Dots Shag Rug 6. Abstract Purple Area Rug

7.Moroccan Lavender Wool Rug 8.Ikat Distressed Multi Rug 9.Moroccan Cambridge Lavender Rug

10. Dorfman Purple Rug 11. Chevron Purple Shag Rug 12.Dewalt Blue/Purple Rug

I love touches of purple and lavender in little girls rooms, especially in shades of soft lilac and lavender. With the girls’ room painted lavender, I will probably shy away from adding a purple rug to the space. Although, the #11 modern chevron purple rug  could work with the minimal amount of purple!

Favorite pink rugs for girls rooms and girl nurseries

I've rounded up my favorite pink rugs under $250. Perfect for little girl nurseries, little girl rooms, tween rooms, playrooms, guest rooms and laundry rooms! werethejoneses.com

7.Calisa Block Printed Rug 8. Vintage Boho Chic Fuchsia Rug 9. Rose Marble Tufted Rug

10.Medallion Leola Pink Rug 11. Ivory/Baby Pink Area Rug 12.Pink Shag Trellis Rug

It was hard to narrow it down to just 12 favorite pink rugs, as I’m a big pink decor lover! The great thing about designing with pinks is there are so many variations from blush to peachy pink to dark fushia pink. All of these options are great for little girls rooms and nurseries to add a fun and fresh splash of feminine color. I actually have #10 in my dining room and it’s one of my favorite rugs in my home!

Do yall have any rooms or spaces in your home you’re transitioning right now? Any advice on moving toddlers from cribs to twin beds? Leave me your rooms in progress or toddler room advice in the comments!

Happy rug shopping and room decorating!

    1. One of mine loves pink and the other loves purple – I might have to go with a neutral so one doesn’t get mad, lol!

    1. it really does make such a huge difference! And there’s so many inexpensive options these days it won’t break the bank if you want to change it out down the road.
