Rugs that bring style to your space from the ground up.

Shag Rugs

Shag Rugs for Bedrooms, Media Rooms and More

Super-soft comfort and fun style come standard with shag rugs, which are perfect for bedrooms, media rooms and teen-centric spaces. Available in a huge range of styles, colors, shapes and sizes, fluffy rugs can transform an ordinary room into an extraordinary one - and they can pull together a mishmash of decor to create a well-rounded, cozy look.

How to Choose a Shag Rug

When you're picking out the perfect shag rug, the main things to worry about are:

  • Size
  • Style
  • Color

Each of these factors will help you zero in on the right area rug for your space.

What Size of Shag Rug Do You Need?

Before you can pick out the style, shade and shape of any rug - not just a shag rug - you need to follow a few sizing rules. Usually, the following measurements work best.

  • 5 x 7 rooms; 3 x 5 rugs
  • 7 x 10 rooms: 5 x 8 rugs
  • 10 x 12 rooms: 8 x 10 rugs
  • 11 x 14 rooms: 9 x 12 rugs
  • 14 x 17 rooms: 12 x 15 rugs

Rectangle, Square, Round or Quirky: Which Style Shag Rug Style is Right for Your Space?

Shag rugs are available in a huge range of shapes and styles. A rectangular rug is a great choice if you're putting it under furniture or using it to bridge the gap between a bed and a desk or a sofa and your entertainment console, but a square rug can create an oasis in the middle of your space. If you want to use your rug to pack a powerful style punch, pick something you don't see every day - like a sheepskin rug with a quirky shape or a circular rug that you can use as an accent piece.

Picking the Perfect Shade for Your Shag Rug

Decorative shag rugs give you a lot of leeway when it comes to colors. Because they're visually interesting - and super-soft and comfortable - you can choose a shade that complements your existing decor without matching. Choose a bright teal rug to add a fabulous splash of color in a neutral-colored room or pick something subdued and natural to pull together already-vibrant decor. You can also choose a shag rug that matches your curtains and drapes to create balance.

Shag Rug Placement Tips

  • Large rugs can make a room look bigger, but only if they're placed properly. Try to keep at least 18 inches of floor space exposed on each side of the rug if that's your goal.
  • Place rugs under the edges of furnishings to pull them all together. For example, if you want a desk and a reading chair to group well with the bed, make sure that at least the base of each furniture item overlaps the edge of the rug by 6 inches.
  • Set up your rug vertically under the bed if your main concern is a warm place to put your feet in the morning. If your priority is a polished, grouped style, go horizontal near the bottom third of the bed.

When you choose a shag rug for your bedroom, media room, living room or any other space, you're adding a practical, fun piece that can help you pull the entire space's design together. Whether you choose a funky pattern, a simple design or a solid color, it'll be functional and cozy - and it can help you create a professionally-designed style that you'll love looking at.
