My house has lots of shaggy rugs, as they really make the place look rugs, as they really make the place look comfortable and save my laminate flooring from the wear and tear of shoes and boots, especially those with high heels. They can be used to update a room and modernise otherwise tired looking furnishings and they come in so many bright and vivid colours now that they are a quick and easy way to refresh your interior design. So, can you have too many? Or is one in a room not enough?
In my living room I have a fireside shaggy rug which is red, but with another shade of red swirling through it. I find this perfect for sitting by the fire on a cold winter's night. Underneath my window I have a matching rug and I have another underneath my coffee table, which makes three shaggy rugs in all in my living room. Because these three shaggy rugs are all matching they give a co-ordinated and warming look to my living room, and enhance my laminated flooring which is in pine. Any more rugs would cover too much of the floor , so I feel that these three are the perfect number for my living room, though a larger room would look good with more, and of course a smaller room might look too cluttered with this amount.
In my dining room I only have one shaggy rug, but it is an extra large one. In twinkling shades of blue it adds a touch of glamour to my dining room, which has a minimalistic look. My dining table stands on top of this shaggy rug which is nearly ten foot long by seven foot wide and covers the whole of the central part of the dining area. This single rug is a talking point when my guests are ushered into the dining room as with its large size and scintillating colour scheme it really enhances the room. In this case, one spectacular rug is enough.
As I have a small bathroom, one shaggy rug perfectly placed to step on as I get out of the bath is enough. However in our bedroom I have two shaggy rugs, one at each side of the bed and matching, and another one at the bottom of the bed. These rugs are quite small and don't overpower the room. The spare bedrooms also have a couple of shaggy rugs each.
When I was counting up the number of shaggy rugs in the house, I nearly missed one or two as they are so integral to the comfort of my home that it is easy to take them for granted. I have two on the upstairs landing which are really useful to help keep the top floor quiet, and two in the kitchen in neutral beige. There are another two small shaggy rugs by each of the doors. Counting up, I have a total of seventeen shaggy rugs. I am beginning to think I have room for a few more!
