Its important to find out that most people are not choosing to put in wall-to-wall shag carpeting. Shag rugs are used very sparingly but they are very effective in creating texture depth and warmth in a room. As popular as stone and wood floors have become in the main living areas rugs now need to have some more depth to them.
Choosing the best shag rug for your home can be a lot of fun. Shag rugs are making a comeback and there are so many different styles sizes colors and materials to choose from so whether your home is contemporary traditional modern or retro with a little bit of legwork you are bound to find the perfect rug to complement your home decor. When shopping for a rug of your own there are a few key factors that you should consider and they include:
Its official - shag rugs are back! These rugs were a big part of the 1970s design culture along with patterned wallpaper and lava lamps. And although Im not advocating for a complete retro rewind this is one 70s style whose return Im happy to celebrate. Heres why!
Size. Size will be a large factor when choosing the right shag rug and will be dependent upon where you plan on putting it. Will it be used as a runner for a long hallway or will it need to be large enough to cover the hardwood flooring underneath a dining room set? Would you like it to be round square or rectangle? Is it going to confined to a particular room or would you prefer a more versatile size that will allow you to move it to different spaces? Whatever your criteria may be finding an optimally sized should not be an issue since most styles of rugs come in various shapes and sizes.
Like all other rugs shaggy rugs are made in a variety of colours and patterns. However solid colours are very popular with this style and are widely available on the market. The advantage of a rug in a solid colour is that you can go for bold colours like lime green without worrying that your choice will overwhelm the room. You can also find rainbow shag rugs available where different coloured yarns are blended evenly together to further emphasize the shaggy texture of the rug. Black and white combinations are especially trendy at the moment.
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.
