Playmat sizing for a bedroom

When choosing what sized playmat is best for your child’s bedroom you need to consider space available, layout and functionality. Measure out the available space in your desired room and have a think about how much of that space you want to dedicate to a play area. 


Small room (less than 3m x 3m): In smaller bedrooms, a smaller round or rectangle playmats would be a better choice to avoid overcrowding. 


If the room is very small then the small playmat could easily go flat against the wall or even tuck under the bed to be brought out for playtime. 

Average room (approx 3m x 3m): You could go for any of the three options with an average sized room, if you wanted to make them a statement piece then place them in the center of the room, if not then the smaller round and rectangle mats will go nicely in the corner by a bookshelf. The large playmat is great for allowing the child to have lots of room to move, though might not work functionally in an average sized room if there is a lot of furniture already.


Large room (greater than 3m x 3m): For a spacious room, the large rectangular playmat, would fit easily and allow for plenty of space to play. The small rectangle or round play mats would be great for a play corner if the room is already filled with larger furnishings.

When selecting the right sized playmat for your living room, make sure that it comfortably fits within the available floor space, ensuring easy access to seating areas and avoiding any sense of overcrowding. Keep it away from any furniture with edges to avoid any accidents from kids learning to walk. 


Round playmat: Great for any sized living room as it is smaller in size. Its round shape is unique and will provide 


Small rectangle playmat: A compact rectangular playmat is equally well-suited to various living spaces. 


Its straight-edged design lends it versatility, allowing for placement next to a couch, at the center of the room, or in a dedicated play corner, neatly surrounded by toys boxes and furnishings. 


Large playmat: A spacious playmat is an excellent choice for an average to large living room, given its need for ample space. In an average-sized living room with a coffee table, it's advisable to position the playmat against a wall to optimize room flow. 


However, in the absence of a coffee table, the playmat can take center stage as a striking centerpiece, maximizing its utility and aesthetic impact in the space.

Thinking of getting two mats?

If you’re planning on getting two for side by side we actually recommend just getting one and placing it over a rug or jute mat.

It looks nicer in a styled space (not that we are trying to talk ourselves out of a sale but you’re better off popping a second mat in another area).
