Shag area rugs bring a visual appeal that low-pile rugs cannot match. Home decorators keen on softening the hard complexion of hardwood, stone, and vinyl floorings should consider these plush rugs. However, when considering the purchase of a shag rug to furnish your home, remember that these carpets tend to be more difficult to clean than other rugs. Homeowners who have family or friends with allergies may choose to opt for a different style rug because the jungle of fibers traps dust, dander, and hair. Interior designers ready for the additional maintenance will be able to evoke sumptuous luxury that’ll instantly invite your guests to relax, unwind, and enjoy present company.
