Some teachers opt for solid color carpets instead of patterned or activity rugs. There are a few good reasons to have a carpet in your classroom even if you don’t want an activity rug.
An Area for Non-Desk Activities
When a student’s activity isn’t well-suited for a desk, a soft solid carpet is a great alternative. An area carpet creates a nice space for activities like independent reading.
Background noise can impede learning. Some school districts are adopting classroom acoustic standards to create optimal learning spaces. Carpets help to meet these standards because they are ten times more efficient at reducing noise than other flooring options.
Floors can be slick. Breaking up hard floors with area carpets reduces slippery spaces in your classroom. Carpets also cushion the fall when toddlers stumble.
Warmth and Comfort
Rugs don’t just make a classroom “feel” warmer, they actually provide thermal resistance between students and the floor. In an independent study, carpet compared to other flooring materials, creates a warmer building.
It’s important to remember that you shouldn’t sacrifice the quality offered by competent rug manufacturers when you’re purchasing a solid color rug. Choose with care and it’ll continue to be a comfortable space in your classroom for years to come.
