What are the pile height options available within Area Rugs?
Area rug pile height refers to how high or low the fibers are on the rug. Within Area Rugs, pile height options include Medium Pile, High Pile, Low Pile, Plush and Flat Pile. Plush pile area rugs have longer fibers and the construction is usually woven. High pile area rugs are fluffy and compact. Medium pile area rugs are the most popular option, typically long enough to be soft and short enough for everyday traffic. Low pile area rugs are generally not plush and are used for high traffic areas and spaces with exposure to moisture. Flat pile rugs have little to no thickness or fiber exposure. Flat pile rugs include hide rugs. Check out our most reviewed product, the Caryatid Chunky Woolen Cable Off-White 9 ft. x 12 ft. Area Rug.
