What better way to create an air of fun, whimsical coziness than with a kids shag rug? These beautiful, luxurious centerpieces can completely transform a room.
Why A Kids Shag Rug?
Everyone loves the power a kids shag rug can have in a room. Shag rugs are already associated with fun and warm energies, and when you add fun children's designs, you have a match made in heaven.
When you use a kids shag area rug, the design doesn't need to be outrageous (though it certainly can be), because the texture is already perfect. A child will love their room more for how comfortable it is to play in than for its interior design...ask any parent who's been down this road.
The following are some of many ways you might use a kids shag area rug in a home:
A shaggy kids rug with jungle animals to bring a playroom to life and stimulate the imagination of little ones.
A fluffy rug for kids room decor, with a soft material that's fun to roll around and play on for children of all ages.
A shag rug for kids room decor with a fun geometric design to accommodate changing tastes as the child grows up.
Using a more reserved design on a shag rug is perfect for kids who have grown out of their current, more youthful decor. The shag keeps it playful, and the design will make them feel more mature.

Room: 7' x 10' "? Rug: 5' x 8'
Room: 10' x 12' "? Rug: 8' x 10'
Room: 11' x 14' "? Rug: 9' x 12'
Room: 14' x 17' "? Rug: 12' x 15'
