Decorating with blue shag rugs can be so thrilling since the color is not like other neutral colors like cream, beige, or white, with which you can easily match with any color of your furniture or wall paint.

Blue is an exciting color that revitalizes one’s energy. It is a cool color that you often pick should you want to refresh your view or calm your mind and find peace. Seeing soft blue shag rugs in your living room would seem like looking out of a window into the clear blue sky.
Why choose a shag rug? Shag rugs are basically created from piles that are ideally at least 2 inches long. Because of this construction, a shag rug seems to have by itself an intricate design. An added benefit in using shag rugs is that the fluffy wool material provides a soft and warm feeling on the soles of your feet. This makes it perfect to be placed beside the fireplace should you plan to spend some warm cozy time during a cold winter day.
Another plus factor for shag rugs is that unlike carpets that largely occupy almost the entire room to cover all floor area, shag rugs do not overwhelm the room interior design when they have prints on them. They are also simple to keep and store, so you can easily change them with seasons. Finally, they do not collect allergens the way carpets do. So if you are having children around, they are wiser options. Shag rugs are also a perfect complement to both wooden and concrete floors for their shaggy appearance complement the cold look of hard floors.
Judging by the way it looks, a shag rug seems difficult to clean because the piles will absolutely trap even the smallest dirt particle from your feet. For a rug then, it serves its purpose extremely well. To clean it, you need to vacuum it and be extra careful that the teeth will not damage the piles. Like any other thing, preventive maintenance is always better than repair, so you should do cleaning on a regular basis.
The problem perhaps with choosing blue shag rugs is that the color blue is not easy to pair with other items in your room. If you already have a red colored sofa, or an orange colored wall, it would be difficult to find an excellent color match. Otherwise, you can have an eclectic motif for an excuse.
With all these in mind, you might be thinking now that keeping blue rugs is more complicated than just having a simple area rug for an added décor or accent to a room. Yes this may be the case, but take note that when you have accomplished creative and functional interior design by using colorful shaggy rugs, the end justifies the means. Neutral colored rugs may be simple to decorate with but they could end up boring and dull.
