WHY YOU SHOULD MAKE YOUR DECOR SHAGGY
There are numerous compelling reasons to embrace a shaggy decor aesthetic, and here are the key highlights:
Visual Interest: Shag area rugs can introduce visual interest and contrast in a room. Their unique texture can break up the monotony of a space with hard surfaces and clean lines, adding a touch of playfulness and personality.
Warmth and Softness: Whether you're walking barefoot or sitting on the rug, you'll instantly feel the difference in comfort compared to other types of rugs. It is the long, plush fibers that create a cushioned surface that feels luxurious and cozy. This can be especially welcoming in colder months or in spaces where you want to create warm vibes.
Texture and Depth: Shag area rugs are known for their long, plush fibers that create a luxurious and cozy texture. If you want to add depth and dimension to your space and make it feel more inviting and comfortable, they are the best choice.
Sound Absorption: Another advantage of shag area rugs is their ability to reduce noise levels in a room. The dense fibers of shag rugs can help absorb sound, reducing echoes and noise in a room. In rooms with hard floors that tend to amplify sound, shag rugs offer perfect noise isolation.
Child-Friendly: Shag area rugs are generally comfortable and safe for children to play on. The soft surface can provide a cushioned area for kids to sit, crawl, or play, reducing the risk of bumps and bruises. Give your decor a chance to embrace your loved ones!
FINDING THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOUR SPACE
One of the first things to consider when choosing a shag area rug is the size that will best fit your space. The size of the rug will depend on the dimensions of the room and the layout of your furniture. Here are some tips to help you determine the right size:
1. Room size: Measure the dimensions of the room to determine the maximum size of the rug. Ideally, the rug should leave a border of flooring visible around the edges of the room. This border creates a frame for the rug and helps to define the space.
2. Furniture placement: Consider the layout of your furniture and how the rug will fit within the arrangement. In a living room, for example, the rug should be large enough to accommodate the front legs of the sofa and chairs. This helps to anchor the furniture and create a cohesive look.
3. Room purpose: Think about the purpose of the room and how the rug will be used. In a dining room, for instance, the rug should be large (8’x10’, 9’x12’, and larger sizes available) enough, to accommodate the dining table and chairs even when they are pulled out. In a bedroom, the rug should extend beyond the sides of the bed to create a soft landing area when getting out of bed.
Some additional tips for positioning shag area rugs:
- Choose a rug that is the right size for the space. The rug should be at least as wide as the furniture that it is under, and it should extend out at least 12 inches on all sides.
- Avoid placing a shag area rug under furniture with sharp edges or legs. This could damage the rug.
- Vacuum the rug regularly to remove dirt and debris. This will help to keep the rug looking its best.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING TIPS FOR SHAG AREA RUGS
Contrary to the misconception that cleaning shag rugs is very difficult or even impossible, by applying the following maintenance and cleaning methods, you will actually see that taking care of and cleaning shag rugs is not challenging at all.
1. Regular vacuuming: Shag area rugs tend to attract dust, dirt, and debris. Regular vacuuming is essential to prevent these particles from settling deep into the fibers.
- Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment or a vacuum specifically designed for shag rugs.
- Avoid using a vacuum with a beater bar, as it can damage the fibers.
2. Spot cleaning: Accidents happen, and it's important to address spills and stains promptly.
- Blot the affected area with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb as much liquid as possible.
- Avoid rubbing the stain, as this can push it deeper into the fibers.
- Use a mild detergent and warm water to gently clean the spot.
- Test the cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous area of the rug before applying it to the stain.
3. Professional cleaning: In addition to regular maintenance, shag area rugs may benefit from professional cleaning once or twice a year. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for any specific cleaning recommendations.
By following these maintenance and cleaning tips, you can ensure that your shag area rug remains clean, fresh, and in good condition for years to come.
