If there’s one room in your home that deserves to be warm and cozy, it’s your baby’s! Like the love you feel for him, she must exude tenderness and security. The hugs he needs to thrive are reflected in the decoration and in the furnishings.
We give you 5 reasons to put a rug in the baby’s room, to transform it into a cozy and reassuring nest, calm and full of tenderness, where he feels good.
A PROTECTIVE AND SOFT ATMOSPHERE
In order to provide a pleasant and suitable place for your baby, you have chosen pastel tones and soft materials, you have avoided unnecessary angles and roughness. The lights are indirect or subdued, the noises are attenuated. Attractive cushions adorn the furniture, everything is planned for a delicate and cozy space.
What about the ground? Tile, floor or vinyl, it makes maintenance easier, but isn’t it a bit cold? Its appearance can contrast with the comfortable surroundings of the bedroom. In this case, a handmade area rug immediately warms the atmosphere. Even on a carpet, it gives a softening effect which increases the feeling of comfort, without duplication.
IT CONTRIBUTES TO YOUR COMFORT AT NIGHT
You may need to get up at night to take care of your baby. Check that he is sleeping well, cover him up, or sometimes respond to his crying. You will appreciate walking on a soft and warm material, especially if you haven’t taken the time to put on your shoes, to come to your aid faster, and without the slightest noise.
You will linger more easily at his bedside, to contemplate him or to hold the handcuff. It is easier to massage his stomach if he needs it until he falls asleep again.
Your armchair installed near its cradle, in a real cocooning corner, will welcome you for nighttime feedings.
What a pleasure than to stretch your feet on the wooly fibers of Tribal rugs, rather than on a sober or even Spartan covering! You will be able to prolong this privileged moment, in soft drowsiness, by sharing the beatitude and the tenderness.
AN EFFICIENT AND CHEAP INSULATION
Babies are very active, they move around a lot. One of their great pleasures is banging on anything they see, they love toys that they can bang together as loudly as possible.
When they start to walk, they stomp on the ground tirelessly, fall and rock relentlessly. Shouting is also a fun activity, in which they exercise their lungs with great joy. When they cry, it is with all their might, to express their pain or their discontent.
Your neighbors will be grateful that all these noises are deadened and muffled. The baby mat is a very effective means of soundproofing, against airborne noise and against shocks. You too will appreciate that they do not resonate and amplify, but are absorbed and softened.
In this age of energy savings, it should be noted that it is also a good thermal insulator. If you also choose natural materials such as wool, this effect becomes an important contribution to your approach as a responsible and informed consumer. This is all for the benefit of your ecological conscience and your well-being.
A MAT FOR SAFETY AND LEARNING
You can put your child on the mat, while you are making his bed or have your hands taken. If you forgot something you need in another room, you can go and get it, without worrying about leaving it for a moment.
If it tips over and rolls on the floor, your baby won’t hurt herself by bumping. And since it fidgets a lot, the children’s mat acts as a protective cushion to absorb shocks.
As a child, you set him up under a playhouse where he can have fun. You will have the great pleasure to join him on the ground to play with him and put yourself at his height. He falls asleep in it with confidence, the Bokhara handmade rug playing the role of a giant blanket for him.
Over the months, he learns to roll over, sit up and crawl, and of course, you don’t want him to do that on bare ground. This is where he can discover his first toys, experiment, and develop his intelligence and coordination.
The patterns of the carpet, geometric or figurative, play an educational role as well as a playful one. The colors solicit the baby’s attention (why not a multicolored carpet), the designs invite him to recognize shapes.
Textures are part of early childhood learning, engaging their sense of touch. Then he crawls on all fours and the adventure continues, without wounds or bumps. His first steps do not cause painful falls, antics, and somersaults are carefree.
It is prudent to fix the handmade Pakistani rug on the floor with double-sided tape, or to choose it with a non-slip lining, to prevent slipping.
As you get older, your child keeps the habit of rolling around and doing all kinds of ground activities, while relaxing. The children’s mat is a reminder, and even a substitute, of the softness of the arms of his parents, where the baby finds this security.
