Of course many rugs will be chosen to stop dirt from entering the main parts of the house. The foyer back door garage entry and side porch doors are some of the examples of these entry points. Rugs for these areas should be fairly flat absorbent and easy to clean. Rug pads that are a non-skid type are a necessity for these areas for obvious reasons.

If youre thinking that because shag rugs have their roots in the 70s that means they limit your home design options think again. Purchasing a shag rug for your house doesnt automatically mean you have to find other retro furniture pieces that match your new rug. In fact I encourage you to do just the opposite! Shag area rugs are a wonderful addition to a room that features a contemporary style. Contemporary design often relies on sleek lines and smooth furniture and the texture of a shaggy rug provides the perfect contrast. This allows your rooms decor to achieve balance. The crispness of contemporary style can sometimes feel impersonal but a shag rug is a warm and welcoming piece that counteracts this impression.

The sophisticated appearance of a leather shag rug makes it an ideal choice for a modern style room. These rugs are durable and stain resistant. They are a good choice for an area rug or an accent rug. Because they hold up well in high traffic areas they also make a good choice for a hallway or entry way runner. The color and texture of leather shags also makes them a good choice for any room with earth tone colors and a nature themed decor.

Now as the title may suggest there are in fact different kinds of shag rug. To start off well have a brief look at the Flokati - a rug that used to be worn as clothing by both warriors and travelers in ancient Greece. Today this popular rug made from 100% pure wool is sought after by rug connoisseurs who prefer something almost as soft as a cloud beneath their feet.

Cleaning a shag area rug is simple just shake them well to remove the excess dirt or simply fluff the pile on a regular basis but occasionally you can use an vacuum cleaner with beater bar attachment but never use the combs or teeth as the shag rug pile will get entangled. They can also be dry cleaned for deep cleaning of the pile. Wool yarn and blends repel dust naturally so cleaning and maintenance is easy.

One thing we have as yet neglected to mention is that Flokati rugs are made with the wool from sheep that call either New Zealand or Greece their home. Our next rug we will be looking at is the Aros rug which like the Flokati is made from the wool of sheep in New Zealand. As such its texture is as soft as the Flokati but has its own unique appearance and manufacturing technique.

And last in the list of quality shag rugs is one thats also known as the "Shaggy" rug due to its appearance. Its more formally known as the Cotton Jersey shag rug and is made from short thick strands which means that its appearance comes across as much more dense. Not only are these rugs comfortable to walk on or sit on but its one everyone just enjoys being around perhaps due to its coziness. As such this makes the ideal rug for both young and old as well as the rebellious at heart.

Shag rugs work really well in living rooms because they can anchor the sofa and a coffee table and such that is on wood or stone floors. A lot of the time furniture can look like it is floating in a room if there is not something with depth to hold it down or give it some definition and a shag rug is great at that. Many of the shag rugs that are used in living rooms are quite neutral in color but simply tie the room together and make it look more comfortable even if the flooring is very hard and even cold looking.
