As you may have noticed, shag rugs are increasingly popular in the last years. They are considered great addition for certain rooms such as the nursery, the kids’ room or playroom because they’re soft and have a very nice texture that kids love. But shag rugs are also used throughout the house in rooms that usually have elegant decors. They’re a nice counterbalance when the décor is either too simple or when it needs a friendly touch.
A shag is either a rug or a carpet that has a deep pile. This gives it a shaggy appearance, hence the name. As any other type of rug, these come with both advantages and disadvantages. They are great because they are wonderful at touch and they make a very suitable choice for the bedroom. It’s so nice to wake up in the morning and to walk bear feet on a shag rug.
But there’s also the issue with cleanliness. Shag rugs, because of their deep pile, tend to absorb dirt and to easily make small things disappear inside them. But carpet rakes help remove dirt and they also restore the rug’s uniform appearance.
There are lots of ways in which you can include a shag rug into your home’s interior décor. For example, a shag rug or carpet would be a wonderful choice in a space that needs to feel cozy. It would be perfect if the space also had wood-paneled walls. You can also use a shag rug in a contemporary space with concrete floors, a space that usually feels cold. The bedroom is, of course, probably the best place where you can put a shag rug or carpet.
