When it comes to making home spaces warmer and cosier, few pieces of furniture can compete with a custom-made long pile rug. This type of carpet has an elegant appearance and offers unique advantages that go beyond functionality.

What advantages does a custom shag rug offer?

A custom shag rug can be perfectly adapted to the needs of the space. By being able to define the size, dimensions and shape of the piece, it is possible to create a piece that fits perfectly into the room, whatever the furnishing objective. This flexibility makes the best use of available space, eliminating waste and achieving a result that is always visually pleasing.

The real strength of a custom shag rug is its unique and customised design. The possibilities of choice in this respect are many: by being able to act on colours, patterns and textures, a carpet can be obtained that blends in perfectly with the style and aesthetics of the surrounding environment.

Added to these advantages are those typical of long pile carpets. These are in fact products that are both soft and thick, which are able to provide excellent protection for the floor and give warmth to the space in which they are placed. Long pile carpets are also able to insulate rooms well, both acoustically and thermally, making the atmosphere of the room in which they are placed even more comfortable.

Choosing a custom shag rug is therefore a good idea, both when you want to turn a specific artefact into the focal point of a room, be it a living room or lounge, and when you want to add a touch of luxury to a bedroom.

How to furnish a room with a custom shag rug?

How you can use custom shag rug  depends very much on the type of space you want to furnish. In this sense, the living room is one of the spaces that lends itself best to the use of this type of artefact.

Given the typical characteristics and use of the living room, the best solution is to opt for a large format long pile carpet. Placed in the centre of the room, a textile of this size can become the absolute star of the decor, making the space more luxurious and comfortable at the same time.

This is certainly not the end of the story. A custom-made long-pile carpet can also be used in bedrooms. In these areas of the home, such a choice makes the room more cosy and warmer, and allows the softness typical of long pile carpets to be appreciated to the full. Depending on how the room is structured and on one’s aesthetic tastes, one can opt for a single large rug, which covers the entire bed area, or for a set of smaller rugs, which are placed at the sides of the bed or in the middle of the room.

Versatility is another strong point of these custom-made carpets , which can be used to decorate every kind of space in the home, from the entrance hall to the hallways. Although there is a great deal of freedom in this respect, when deciding where to place the different pieces one should still avoid the busiest spaces, as the continuous passage of people could wear the surface of the artefacts.

How to choose how to make a custom shag rug?

Long pile carpets  are traditionally hand-knotted, with the fibres being fastened at the base or knotted together. While in classic short-pile carpets the fibres are shaved and have a reduced thickness, in long-pile carpets the surface is made up of long, soft threads of fabric, which make the carpet soft and cosy.

Another important observation. To customise a long pile carpet, three key elements must be defined: its shape, size and design.

The carpet can have a geometric shape, such as rectangular or round, or an abstract shape. The choice between these two options depends on personal preference and the design of the surroundings.

When it comes to size, however, it is important to check not only that the custom shag rug fits the available space, but also that it respects the proportions of the room.

It is, however, the design of the product where the real customisation comes into play. Choosing a custom-made carpet requires defining the desired colours, patterns and textures. If you want an original result, you can, for example, opt for a bold, modern design with bright colours and geometric patterns. On the other hand, if you want a simpler, more basic design, you can opt for a more traditional and sophisticated design with neutral tones and floral patterns.
