Classroom Rugs and Alternatives

Classroom Rugs for elementary classrooms are both functional for floor seating as well as aesthetically pleasing. There are also subject matter rugs that have valuable content printed, that is colorful and attractive for students to want to read them. Generally, rugs make a classroom seem warmer and more inviting, more ‘homey’. They also give you a focal point that you can integrate your classroom theme or colors with.

This are beautiful classroom rugs below as well as some cheaper alternatives at the very end of this blog post. I love to find awesome classroom decor ideas. As an Amazon affiliate, I may earn a commission for purchases using my links. Learn more.

Classroom Seating Carpets





Use foam tiles as a classroom rug or for flexible seating. The soft foam protects floors from scratches and it is the right thickness to cushion a fall.

Did you know that there are seating foam tile sets that work just like seating rugs. Each tile is 2′ x 2′, wide enough for seating children. Available in circle seats or square seats.

Round stackable floor cushion circles are another option.



Individual seating carpets and mats are wonderful for helping students with respecting personal space.
