Purchase good-value short-pile rugs online
The short-pile rug is a classic among rugs. The short pile means that these rugs are particularly easy to care for, making them the ideal option for any part of your home. They bring a special touch of warmth and comfort to any room, be it in an open-plan living area, for marking out the dining area or for framing the bed in a bedroom. Short-pile rugs come in a whole host of variations and are made from materials such as polypropylene, polyester, wool and acrylic, which makes them particularly hard-wearing. At Rug24, our priority is to ensure that the materials we use are handled with the utmost care during both automated and hand-finished processes.
Rugs are also an ideal accessory for children's rooms. Young children can play safely on our rugs, which come with OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certification that guarantees the rugs are free from harmful substances. Please contact our Customer Service team if you have any questions about the certification or about anything else.
What makes a short-pile rug special?
The first thing you notice when you look at a short-pile rug is the very thing that gives it its name — the short pile. It measures a maximum of 1.5 cm, and this opens up a host of customisation options for this type of rug.
The short pile sits on a robust cotton backing, creating a durable, easy-care surface. The special high-low structure makes it possible to incorporate unique 3D-effect designs into the short pile.
We also sell short-pile rugs that are produced using a heatset process. This involves thermal fixation of the yarn so that its ends remain sealed and do not open up over time. This helps to guarantee the durability of the rug.

The benefits of a short-pile rug
- The pile in a rug helps to trap dust, preventing it from circulating in the air. This means that short-pile rugs are the ideal solution for households that include allergy sufferers (e.g. people who have dust mite allergies). In non-carpeted areas, dust accumulates on the hard flooring, so it is important to damp-clean the flooring regularly. As any dust on your rug will be trapped there, all you need to do to is vacuum the rug regularly to remove it.
- Whether you own your own home or live in rented accommodation, one annoying issue we all have to deal with is the everyday noise created in a home. Our short-pile rugs can help with this, as they have sound-insulating properties. Just like furniture, lamps and other furnishings, rugs have an insulating effect; this is particularly useful in large rooms that contain little in the way of furnishings. And in addition to absorbing sound, they also provide thermal insulation, helping to create a cosy feel.
- Our four-legged friends are only too happy to make themselves at home on a nice warm rug. Some pet owners are keen to discourage this, as it is all too easy for the claws of their faithful companions to get caught in the fibres of the rug, or for cleaning the rug to become a never-ending task as a result. With a short-pile rug, however, it is not so easy for claws to get snagged while pets are playing or stretching because the pile is not so long. Short-pile rugs are therefore ideal for all your four-legged friends. What's more, it is also very easy to remove dirt and stains from a robust, easy-care short-pile rug.
- These rugs also have another practical feature that reinforces their status as robust, easy-care solutions: The short, densely woven pile makes it hard for liquids to penetrate deep into the fibres. If you act quickly, you can simply wipe away many types of spill. The structure of short-pile rugs makes them particularly tough and hard-wearing. Read on for more information about how to care for the rugs.

Which rooms work well with short-pile rugs?

What do I need to know about caring for my rug?
Regular vacuuming is generally sufficient to keep your rug in good condition for a long time to come. This could be weekly, or simply as required. If the rug seems to have lost some of its plush feel, try vacuuming without the brush attachment, i.e. using only the tube of the vacuum cleaner. Use generous sweeping motions over the rug. This restores the pile and the rug will once again have that fluffy look.
