Extra Thick Rugs

Extra thick rugs have higher pile height than the rugs in our thick category, starting at 20mm and ranging up to 50mm. They are superior to thinner rugs in many ways, mostly related to practicality as well as style. Thickness refers to the pile height and density, except in traditional rugs, where it refers to density alone due to the way they are made. Most rugs in this category are shaggy, so the pile height is long and loose rather than dense.

Extra thick rugs are better than thinner ones, as they provide more warmth and comfort underfoot, helping save on energy bills, add texture and character to a room, and create a homely and relaxing feel. Whether you are just getting out of bed, or coming home after a long day, an extra thick rug will make you feel safe and at home. They are also comfier to sit on if you have children or just like to relax on the floor, however they will wear down if they are the shaggy variety, so we would recommend modern thick rugs if you will be getting more use out of the rug. Non-shaggy extra thick rugs have high pile height that can absorb wear and tear, making them last longer than thinner ones, and maintain their appearance for longer. Shaggy extra thick rugs are mostly a stylistic feature that are nice to gently place your feet on whilst on a couch for example rather than for heavy use - this will ensure they last as long as possible.

The thicker the pile, the more warm, luxurious and longer lasting a rug will be. Although they are more expensive than thinner varieties, they are excellent value for money, as they also protect the flooring underneath, and if you have just purchased your brand new floor from us, this will be a relief! They will be less damage from footfall, sunlight and impact, as well as tying a room together well and reducing hardness of the floor. It is important however to ensure you rotate these rugs often if they are underneath furniture, as you will reduce leg markings this way and retain the rugs beauty for longer.
