We've been scouring the interwebs for designer styles that we can help the general public achieve, and what we've noticed most of late is the vast number of spaces using shag style carpets. Shag carpets can be the shabby chic touch you need, or provide the clean base for your space. Let's explore some of the fun spaces we've found on instagram, and see what we can offer that will get you that designer look.

They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but I'm beginning to think it's the shag carpet's best friend. Wonky diamonds seem to win the shagtastic style vote, as they are literally everywhere we look these days.

Here's a look at some of our own designs that will get your space on its way to being just as fantastic as the designer looks above:

Solid shag rugs have a knack for making a room look clean and serene, a great base for an airy space.

And now, for some of our own rugs in designer spaces:

So, if you're ready to get shagtastic, give a hollar, and we'll get you on your way to stylin' on em.

Of course we love on any kind of woven art - weaving is kind of our thing. So finding these shag art carpets by Kahove was pretty exciting. Taking classic art pieces, like the Mona Lisa and Starry Night, and turning them into shag carpets Kahove breathes new and exciting life into them. What do you think, would you put one in your home?

Choosing the right rug for your space always starts with measuring the room it will live in. While this seems like an obvious first step, you'd be surprised how many people glance at a space and take guesses.

The problem with taking guesses is that you may end up with a carpet who's scale doesn't match the space it's in - wether that is too large, or too small, the fit and feel just isn't right and now you're forced to live with it or invest in another carpet.

If you're going for the wall to wall look, then measuring the room accurately is highly important. If it's just an inch or two off in any direction, the end result you're going for will not be achieved.

Sometimes it may not be the room in particular that needs measuring, but the specific space within the room. Maybe you want to delineate separate living areas with floor coverings. One way of deciding what size rug is the best for that space would be to use painters tape to measure out your ideal rug dimensions.

If you're purchasing a new pre-made rug, it's good to keep in mind the standard room sizes available when laying your tape lines. If you're ready to invest in something that's custom made just for you and your space, simply lay the tape exactly where you want the rug to sit. If you're going for an antique rug, the best thing to do is to layout two different tape lines - one for the smallest size you're willing to use, and one for the largest size - and then try all the workable options you find in the space before committing. Even if you're using tape to decide on a rug size, it's still good to double check yourself before heading out to shop.

Better safe than sorry, right?
