How good is the quality of KidCarpet.com carpet and rugs?
Some “big box” retailers offer “rugs” with children’s designs that are really just very thin, cheap mats. Our kid’s carpets and classroom rugs are much higher quality.
Our nylon carpets/rugs are similar in thickness and feel to the carpet most people have in their home (cut pile carpet), except that they are strong enough to be used in a commercial setting (such as movie theaters, hotels or airports). These are the most durable and stain resistant children's carpets and area rugs in the industry.
Our mill has the newest and most advanced printing machine in the industry. Other carpet mills that supply the educational/kids market print their rugs at 256 dpi (dots per inch). Our printer prints at 625 dpi. This means that we can print images much more clearly and that we can design our rugs with many more elements that have small details.
Please click on the "specifications" tab located on every product's page in order to get more specific details about the specifications and quality. Also, we offer sample swatches so that you can get a better look at the characteristics of the carpet.
A note about the colors we use: You may notice that we do not use as much yellow or other light colors as the other suppliers of kids’ rugs. This is because we know from experience that yellow will begin to look dirty far more quickly than darker colors (no matter who makes the rug or how it is dyed).
What type of guarantee does KidCarpet.com offer?
We are committed to standing behind every one of our kids’ carpet and rugs. We offer a 100% guarantee against manufacturing defects. If there is a defect, we will ship you a replacement for free.
What type of warranty does KidCarpet.com offer?
Lifetime Abrasive Wear Warranty:
KidCarpet.com is the industry leader in high quality carpet and rugs for children. We guarantee that your rug will not wear more than 10% by abrasion throughout its lifetime. If it were to wear more than 10%, KidCarpet.com agrees to replace the rug subject to a usage schedule. If the same rug is not available at the time of replacement, you may choose another rug design from our web site.
Damage caused by tears, spills, pets, cuts, piling, matting, crushing, burns and improper maintenance are not manufacturing defects and are excluded. We require the original invoice or sales receipt as proof that you were the original purchaser of the rug. This warranty is nontransferable.
Serging is the thread that is sewn around the edges of our rugs to give them a decorative finish (as opposed to loose carpet ends). The serged edges of our rugs are made to withstand the rigors of children’s environments. Unfortunately, however, it can still be damaged. Damage can result from many things, such as: cutting it with a sharp edge during opening, some types of abrasive cleaning equipment, children picking at it, etc. Therefore, our warranty on the serging is as follows: Customers can ship the rug to us at their expense (usually about $20 to $70, depending on the size). We will then repair the serging for free. We will then ship the rug back to you for free. Care must be taken not to vacuum over the serging. If you prefer, it is suggested that repairs be made using a hot glue gun at the first sign of fraying. This will prevent the serging from fraying further. Please refer to the "What You Need to Know Before You Buy" page for more details about the serging warranty.
*Free return shipping is only valid in the continental USA.
Lifetime Anti-Microbial Protection Warranty
Note: If your KidCarpet is soaked in water, the colors may run. This is not covered by warranty.

It's been a year since I received the rug, and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know what a wonderful addition your carpet has been to my classroom. It has gone through the trenches of a Michigan muddy fall and spring and I was pretty concerned that my kids had soiled it beyond cleaning, but when I walked in this morning, it was like I had a brand new carpet again. The janitor staff told me it cleaned up so easy. It was the highlight of my morning. Not only did you give me a great carpet for my kids to use, but it is durable and cleans up GREAT. I'm delighted.

I cannot thank you enough for your assistance in getting my football field rug shipped in time for my after state testing Super Bowl party for my students. Mike Johnson from the Atlanta Falcons came for the celebration and the rug was a perfect meeting place for our MVP awards ceremony Your customer service team went out of their way (even giving me their personal cell phone numbers) and were extremely kind and professional. We LOVE the rug and it will be enjoyed by 5th grade MVPs for years to come! Please see the attached picture.

Sandra, I got my carpet yesterday and I looooooooooooooooooooooove it! I'm designing a nursery in my home in anticipation of my first grandchild due on June 20th and it's perfect! The colors really make the room pop and provides a great focal point for the room. Thank you for giving me such great service when I needed to change the size of the carpet after ordering it and thanks to your company for filling the order so quickly.

Hello, We just purchased the 6x8 Outer Space Rug and I wanted to comment on our experience with your company.
First and most importantly, I spoke with the same woman twice, once last week and once this morning (Feb. 13). She was extremely helpful, articulate and polite: Everything that is desired but uncommon in today's world of robots, outsourcing and elevator music waiting lines. Since your market is competitive she deserves much of the credit for your sale and your highest accolades.
Second, your willingness to ship out samples was key in our decision to buy. Reading descriptions or seeing pictures or even feeling samples hung on a rack do not do the product justice. I'd never have believed the rug could be comfortable, but, laying it on the wood floor I am easily able to kneel without discomfort. I wanted a flat rug that would be cozy, comfy, attractive and importantly PLAYABLE for the boys. I had them build puzzles on it, drive cars on it, make block towers on it, etc... I was even taking notes on a single sheet of paper using a ball point pen this morning while I talked with your exemplary customer service woman.
Top marks all around.

To Jim, who handled my order, and to anyone else involved. Thank you for your excellent and personal service. The star rug was at my door yesterday afternoon. I purchased the rug as a surprise gift for my daughter's new first grade classroom. Today was her first day as a new teacher. I was so pleased to be able to give it to her and have it in her room for the students today. It was the perfect accent to complete the classroom. I understand that we all have "jobs" to do and try to do it well but wanted you to know that all of your efforts and the time you took to do this had a great and positive effect. This wasn't just "a rug". It was an important thing for me for my daughter and I wanted to let you all know. Thanks everybody!
Hi, I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our rug. We purchased the rug 5 years ago, when our first daughter was born. It has moved houses 4 times, but as soon as it is put down, our children feel at home. What has most impressed us, is how well the rug wears. It looks as good now as it did when we bought it, as it has had LOTS of heavy use. We bought it because we liked it's look, we love it more everyday because it still looks so good!

PS We recommend your company to everyone who sees the rug.
Our family just made our first carpet purchase with your company and we want to write and let you know that we decided to purchase from "kidcarpet.com" because of the fabulous customer service provided by Lindsay, on your team. She even went so far as to research how the carpet was going to be cut if we went with a 12X9 instead of a 12X6 carpet and she called us back with the explanation. No one at any other company was as knowledgeable, thorough, professional AND friendly as Lindsay. You have a tremendous asset on your team and when we find ourselves needing carpet again, we will call your company first and ask for her!
By the way, the carpet arrived today and it is EXACTLY as Lindsay described. The whole family is thrilled with how it looks in our basement and the kids immediately started playing hopscotch and tic-tac-toe. (When I picked them up tonight, they asked me if they could go out and play when we got home. I told them it was raining so they couldn't play outside but I had a surprise for them. I wish you could have seen the looks on their faces when they saw the new carpet. It's worth every penny. Their reaction "now we can have fun playing hopscotch INSIDE even when it's raining. This is GREAT!)
Thanks so much!

You are one impressive company. Your website it fantastic. I searched long and hard for just the right rug and then appreciated your BBB record, your security features and the ease of use of your site.
To receive a reply to my question so quickly... on a Sunday morning no less, is amazing.
I love the rug. The colors are brilliant just as pictured on your site. I can't wait for the kids to see it on Monday morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

We ordered a Kid Carpet for our 5-year-old son, Sam. It's the baseball diamond carpet, which we put in his room. He loved it from the moment he saw it. To our surprise, he used the carpet to play make-believe baseball games with his toys and dolls. His teddy bears sat on his bed "watching" the game from the "bleachers." Because Sam's room is on the small side, we moved the carpet downstairs to his playroom. Now he has room to play all the time, as much as he can. We will soon be ordering a new Kid Carpet for his room again.
In the picture (taken in our home in Arlington, Virginia), Sam is hitting a home run and ready to run the bases himself. He loves his Kid Carpet. We love it, too. Thank you!
I purchased a KidCarpet for my twin boys’ nursery. I was very impressed by how vibrant and cheerful it made the room. I wanted a Noah’s Ark theme, and your carpet was the perfect carpet to make that impact as soon as anyone walks into the room. The animal pictures will be great for teaching to them names of animals, especially as they are just crawling now. I love the carpet.
