Lorraina Quere Shag Rugs March 27, 2018 22:32:18
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.
The color and texture of the rugs you select for a room play a large role in setting the mood in the room. There are an amazing number of rug sizes patterns and textures to choose from. In fact the choices may seem overwhelming. The selection process can be somewhat simplified by narrowing your search to one specific rug type. A shag rug is an excellent texture of rug to choose from. You can find a shag style that will enhance the appearance of every room in your home.
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.
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 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.
A bedroom is a wonderful location for a luxurious hand-woven fluffy rug. Stepping onto a soft fuzzy rug first thing in the morning is a good way to start the day. Hand-woven wool rugs look elegant in a bedroom. However they have specific care and cleaning requirements. An alternative choice would be a thick sensuous shag made of hand woven polyester yarn. The two inch pile of softness this rug offers can help create a relaxing and romantic mood in the room.
