How soft colour carpets help younger children

by Guy Hudson on July 24, 2021

Some teachers may prefer solid carpet over patterned or activity rugs. Here are a few reasons why you might want to have a small rug in your classroom, even if it's not an "activity rug.

Reduce noise in the classroom

Background noise can impede learning. If your school district is in the process of adopting classroom acoustic standards, there's a good chance that you're already well-acquainted with carpets and their ability to keep down sound levels while also meeting other needs like soft surfaces for children who may be more sensitive or prone to injury - but did you know just how much better they are at reducing ambient sounds than even hardwood? Carpets help us meet these new classroom acoustics regulations so we have less worry about those early education years being derailed by distractions from outside sources.


Safety elements 

Floors can be dangerous, so it's important to make sure that your students are as safe and comfortable as possible. Carpets not only provide a softer surface for them to land on in the event of an unfortunate fall - they actually reduce slippery spaces by breaking up hard floors!

Keep children feeling safe & happy 

Rugs are often overlooked when it comes to adding warmth or a softer feel in the classroom. They're not just for decoration, they actually provide thermal resistance between students and flooring materials like tile. In an independent study that compared carpet with other flooring options on their ability to regulate temperature, carpets had better results than wood floors or linoleum tiles thanks to increased air circulation around your feet!

A set area to get kids out of their desks 

This is the perfect time of day to enjoy an area carpet. A soft, solid surface that's great for independent reading and mindful activities like drawing or coloring while listening to a story - sounds pretty relaxing!
