Shag rugs are known for being comfortable, luxurious and stylish, so it's no wonder so many people want to add one to their home! But shag rugs aren't suitable for all spaces so it's important to consider where one would work best in your home before you pick one.
Areas with less foot traffic are the best choice for shag rugs. Some spots you might find them include in front of the fireplace, home libraries, and nurseries. The deep fibres are lovely to sink your feet into, but they're also more challenging to clean, which is one reason you won't want one in a high traffic area. The fibres can also get damaged from heavy foot traffic, so it's best to keep them in quieter areas of the room.
Choosing a shag rug in a single solid colour is a great choice, so the rug's pattern doesn't get compromised from movement. Polypropylene shag rugs are a good choice if you're concerned with stains and wear and tear. In fact, many polypropylene rugs are stain-resistant. On the other hand, a shag wool rug is also one of the softest, most comfortable rugs you could imagine, while also proving to be more durable than most synthetic rugs.
