For fun in a family room or childs room add one or more brightly colored shags made of olefin. These rugs are inexpensive stain and fade resistant. Children would love to have some of the bright colors such as fresh nectarine purple berry or lime green added to their room. Alternating two electrifying colors in a block pattern adds even more spark to the room. A brightly colored striped shag instantly invites fun into the room. Shag rugs made from cotton tee shirt strips can also be a unique and colorful addition to a room with casual decor.
Shag rugs are best in the rooms in your home where you crave a little bit of extra comfort and relaxation like the bedroom. You know how horrible it is to get up in the morning and place your feet on a stone-cold floor? Put your shag pile rug right by the bed so that the first thing you feel when your feet hit the floor is its rich cosy texture. Another great spot for these rugs is in front of your living room couch so that after a hard day at work you can throw off your business shoes and treat your tired feet to the plush comfort of your favourite piece of home decor. Even better than a foot massage!
A genuine shag is made with long pile strands or with a mixture of long medium and short pile attached to backing. These variable-length strands give shag its distinctive cloudlike look and feel. Such a three-dimensional character brings texture and interest to smooth surfaces like hardwood and tile floors in an instant.
Lets face it shag rugs brought about a cultural and design revolution. No longer are they considered the revolting rugs that you couldnt wait to throw out at the end of the year and no longer do they fall apart quite as easily. With better machine and handmade piling techniques an assortment of colors and patterns shag rugs are making a comeback!
The shag rug really is popular right now and that is probably because of its diversity. A rug that can be used in just about any room to add style and texture is great! While shag carpeting will likely not be seen as it was in the past shag rugs are very popular for the time being.
Shag rugs come in a multitude of colors and the pile range depth is from one inch to about two and a half inch giving that luxurious softness and lush style. Usually rugs are tufted or woven in loops and then sheared to get the short fibers but shag rugs are left without shearing the length and that gives them that deep piled lush soft feel. If you are looking for an extra soft warm shag rug go in for rugs that have a high pile of over 2 inches. The shorter pile gives less warmth and softness.
