If when you think of Shag rugs, you think of those straggly, loosely woven style statements of the 70s, you haven’t looked at shag rugs recently. Shag carpeting is making a comeback, and there are some very good reasons why it is now one of the most popular styles of carpet for home decoration today.
Today’s shag rugs are softer and more luxurious than those of yesteryear, with a more refined styling that’s designed to complement any decor. In fact, there’s nothing “shaggy” about today’s shag carpeting. There are variety construction and material used in today’s shag rug including a tighter weave and a higher pile density which make these rugs look lush and inviting while making them firmer and longer-lasting.
The appeal of shag rugs can be summed up in one word – comfort. Everything about a shag just makes you feel good. A shag rug is like heaven underfoot and with the range of colors and patterns available, you can infuse that comfort into any room in your house.
Shag rugs add that touch of lush when other elements of your room are more minimalist. Placed in the center of your living area, it softens the look. Use a shag rug with a leather sofa and glass-topped tables and you will see how the rich, plush softness of the rug adds warmth to the decor.
Shag rugs are perfect for bedrooms, too. They provide a deep layer of comfort that softens those first few morning steps. Shag rugs work well over hardwood floors, either as an accent rug or as a centerpiece to a living room ensemble.
Shag rugs are great for apartment living, because they do a great job of absorbing sound and cushioning footsteps – important if you have children. Today’s shag rugs are easy to care for and keep clean, making them an excellent choice for a child’s bedroom. And teens just love shag rugs in vibrant colors paired with animal-print pillows and bed linens.
