9 Great Alphabet Rugs for A Child's Room

Updated on August 17, 2014

ABCs for underfoot

When I started looking at alphabet rugs to go with an alphabet themed kids bedroom, I was surprised how many of the options looked like something you'd put down on a preschool classroom floor. Nothing wrong with that. If you have a lot of kids, a lot of traffic or a lot of space to cover, that might be a great option for you.

But a little unique style, colors that aren't always bright primaries and soft pile sometimes are what you are after. So here are 9 options for you to consider that work with a variety of color schemes and even with non-alphabet bedroom themes while still bringing letters to the floor.

Kids' Bedroom Decor

Colorful Alphabet Rug

$229 for 4'x6' size at Land of Nod

Also available in 5'x8' size

Handwoven wool blend

This rug has just the right mixture of funky and classy. And the neutral background makes it able to mix with bold or subdued color palettes equally well.

Learning Carpets Alpha Walkabout Play Carpet

Free shipping from Amazon

3'x6'8" size

The one might be a play carpet (already breaking my own guidelines) but the bright colors and clever design give it a leg up on most. It's made from nylon, so it won't be that soft, but it is non-toxic, non-allergenic and stain resistant. Good qualities in a kids rug!

Fun Rugs Supreme Numbers & Alphabet Rug

$85 at Wayfair

With its extra high pile and hand carved design, this rug offers a quality option. And the color scheme here is awesome. I would pair it with more subtle colors in the room with bright splashes rather than a brightly colored room.

Shadowed Alphabet Rug

Two sizes at Modern Rugs

Hand-tufted rug with a beautiful hand-carved pattern. Consider using the letter colors in the rest of the room with just little touches of black to bring it all together.

Fun Rugs Fun Time Letters and Names Rug

$114.99 at Kohl's

Online exclusive

3'3'' x 4'10''

Combination of letters and animals help your child begin learning, just like in school.

Animal Alphabet Area Rug

Available at Amazon

Brightly colored animals and objects help your child associate letters with words. The carved letters create a two-dimensional look and feel that stands out. Warm background means dirt won't show as much either!

An alphabet rug with a variety of colors gives you lots of options.

      @jjpowers: I assume you mean the orange room? That was a shot from The Land of Nod, so the furniture can be found there. If they still carry it.

      It's like Phonics in rugs form! In all seriousness these rugs may shorten the learning curve for those little ones that don't know their ABCs... think about it!
