Shag rugs are more than a chic addition to any room. Thanks to its high-pile makeup, pillow-like softness, and furry texture, shag rugs provide a soft, warm landing for your bare feet.
While it’s hard to resist the softness and tactile appeal of shag rugs, most people don’t enjoy the level of commitment required to keep them nice and pristine. Because of the long fibers that collect more dust and dirt—and vacuuming frequently isn’t always enough—keeping your shag rugs clean can be tough. It doesn’t help if you have pets and kids at home.
If you’ve been putting off your shag rug dreams for this exact reason, you’d be happy to know that Ruggable now offers a washable shag rug option that gives you all the trappings of a soft, plush rug—without the typical upkeep challenges you’d expect from owning one. Here are just a few reasons why you’ll love Ruggable’s new Shag Rug Covers!
1. Ruggable shag rugs are easy to clean and machine washable.
Remember that warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you first sink your bare feet into that luxurious, shaggy pile? How about that bloodcurdling moment when you accidentally spilled red wine on your newly installed shag? Yup, we feel you. Such is the polarity of owning something beautiful.
But don’t you worry. Just like our non-shag Rug Covers, our Shag is made of lightweight and durable textile fibers that are able to withstand machine washing without losing its quality and colors. This ability to wash your rug is a godsend, especially if you have pets and/or kids at home or are particularly susceptible to dust, dander, and other allergens.
When it’s time for a wash, simply remove the Rug Cover from the Rug Pad, toss the Cover into the washer and dryer, and voila—good as new; no professional cleaning required!
2. They are stain- and water-resistant, too.
For some people, red wine spills usually mark the end of a rug’s life. For others, it’s that one pet accident after the other. No matter what your rug threshold is, our rugs are designed with a textile blend that’s naturally stain-resistant, and with a water-resistant layer that helps keep spills from leaking through the Rug Cover. This means all our rugs, including our shag rugs, will hold up exceptionally well to spills, stains, and even pet accidents.
3. They’re just as soft as wool, without the itchy feel.
Our shag rugs are made of soft synthetic fibers that feel smooth to the touch—never scratchy or itchy! So you’ll enjoy the same level of luxury, warmth, and softness you’d expect from wool shag rugs without that wool sweater-y feel. Plus, our fibers are inherently moth- and mildew-resistant, hypoallergenic, and flame-resistant.
4. They complement every design aesthetic.
Our white and grey shag rugs offer an eye-catching accent to your bedroom or living room.
For that winter wonderland look, Polar White Shag Rug offers a bright backdrop that ties all your decor pieces together. And because our white shag rug is machine washable, you’ll never have to worry about tracking dirt, spills, and stains again.
For a more pared-down look, opt for our Stormy Grey Shag Rug, which tastefully complements any room theme, from minimalistic to classic to eclectic.
5. They’re interchangeable.
If you’re already a fan of Ruggable and you already have one of our Rug Systems, you’d love the fact that you can use any same-size Rug Pad with our Shag Rug Covers. That’s the beauty of Ruggable rugs! So feel free to switch up your lower-pile Rug Covers for a shag one during winter, and see how that one simple tweak can change the overall look and mood of your room.
