So i did buy this as a cheap bedroom replacement carpet. My home carpets are 20 years old and now getting destroyed by new young pets. My room is 9.5×12.75. So this large 10×13 was enough to lay on the bare floor and i put some anchor staples in the corner and then just smoothed it out stretched it by hand and stapled it to the tack strips the carpet was installed with and cut the excess with a carpet knife and then hammer and chisel the edges under the baseboards. I didnt get new padding and didnt need it, its decently plush already. Feels great on bare feet. For 130 bucks for the dark tan/coffee color and the size, i was really impressed for once. Might get another for the living room but keep it as a rug like it should be. It may not last for many years but i put enough effort into the install that it should last long enough until we save to get the whole house recarpeted

Perfect rug for hardwood & tile flooring
I received my Mainstays Manchester Shag Rug yesterday and LOVE it! Since it came rolled it took about 12 hours with a couple heavy items on the corners but it straightened out very quickly. I had been looking for the perfect rug to put in the living room since moving in 2 months ago and this is a winner! My living room has hardwood floors that are on the dark side and the rug is a sand color. It looks GREAT against the darker colored floor! There is a photo attached and you can see how great it goes together. At first I was a little concerned because there was a LOT of loose fibers that fell off. However after a good vacuuming I have not seen but a couple since. So if you decide to purchase one don't be alarmed by the loose fibers and I would recommend vacuuming it right away to remove the loose fibers. The carpet seems to be made well and is very soft under the feet. My son likes to sit on the floor to watch TV and he just loves the new rug and how soft it is. Also if you need a runner for your hall or entry way Wal-Mart carries the matching Mainstays Manchester Shag Runner Rug for under $20 which I plan to order for my hallway.
Very good rug for the price
The 5x7 Mainstays Manchester Shag Rug is impressive. I wasn't sure what to expect since I hadn't seen it in a store first but it is very nice. It did come rolled up so it took a little time to flatten out on the floor and it only had a very slight odor as most new carpets do, but it didn't last more than an hour. The shag fibers were flattened out from being rolled up but I spent a little time running my fingers through it as if I were rubbing the tummy of a big shaggy dog and it came out looking just beautiful. It is a much thicker shag than expected. Of course there are a few loose fibers but nothing unusual and I didn't find very many. The backing is firm and I although I am currently using it over a patterned Berber carpet it lays flat and doesn't seem to move. I believe it will do just as well on a wood floor or over tile. The bound edges on all four sides are very nicely done and the color is light and neutral enough to blend well in many situations. See photo with the corner of the rug turned up. I'm looking forward to ordering the matching runner soon!
Looks Great on Park Avenue or Main Street USA!
When I received my near Mainstays Manchester Shag Rug, I was so impressed that I immediately re arranged my living room, so I could show off my new 5ft X 7 ft area rug. I like natural, neutral shades in my home so this off white or cream colored area rug went perfect with my decorating taste. I like the modern look of the shag. It is a short shag, and thick pile...not skimpy at all. It has a strong backing and does not skid or slip easily. The edging is firm and tight which I feel will keep the carpet looking good for a long period of time. The quality of the area rug is far superior to the quoted price. You will not be disappointed in this product. I am under the impression that it comes in various colors but I would could not think of a better, neutral color than this one to add a strong decorative look to my living room. If you are looking for a quick change in the look of your living room (or any room as far as that goes), this is your decorating choice. I am very impressed with the overall quality, color and durability. I would definitely by this brand again if I am looking to add something new at an affordable price. I love it!
The Mainstays Manchester Shag Runner Rug is fluffy, yet understated; soft and cozy. It is made of stain- and fade-resistant olefin yarn. As I mentioned before, this rug is very soft. It measures 24 inches by 72 inches. Its latex back makes it skid and roll-resistant. It is machine washable. However, the best thing about it -- it is made in the USA. That, alone, makes it worth the purchase! I placed it at my front door, but it was too long to lay lengthwise, so I turned it around. That did not provide adequate coverage without looking "uneven." (The backing allowed it to stay in place on my laminate wood floor.) So I placed it in my family room in front of the sofa that everyone sits on. That was much better, because it ran the length of the sofa, and it is so soft, it feels very good underfoot! (It did not roll up on top of my carpet.) This rug is lightweight, but it does not feel thin or cheap. It is definitely a quality runner. I like the look of this "olefin" yarn. It gives a nod to the Shags from the 70s, but it is chic and modern. When I do wash this, I think I will hang dry.
Different colors don't have the same quality
Nice rug for the price I paid, I took 1 star because I ordered this rug in grey for my kids room and i was so happy when it arrived, it was very fluffy and I decided to ordered another in Maverick brown but this one doesn't looks like same quality, I felt disappointed because it was for my bedroom and I can clearly feel the difference while walking on them or vacuuming them.
I like it
I really like it actually! I didnt give it 5 stars bc its pretty thin but turns out I actually kinda like that were not tripping over it all the time. The color, I got beige, is a really nice color, and its a lighter shade of beige almost a sand, FYI. Sorry not a better pic Im not home right now.
Satisfied with my choice!
The rug is a perfect size and perfect color, light grey, its a silvery grey, very pretty. I love shags and freize' in bedrooms. I felt a bit over priced for what it is, but it fit, (7' X 10') what I needed. Might end up putting a pad under it, but I do like it.
THIS 5'X 7' MAINSTAYS MANCHESTER SHAG RUG IS A REPLACEMENT FOR ONE I GOT AT AN ESTATE SALE THAT MY DOG IS ALWAYS DIGGING AT. I LIVE IN A CAMPER AND HAD A SHAG CARPET INSTALLED 2 YEARS AGO. THIS MATCHES PERFECTLY. IT'S 100% TUFTED OLEFIN. I LOVE MY COFFEE SO I AM GLAD IT IS STAIN AND FADE RESISTANT. IT IS SOFT AND FLUFFED UP GOOD AFTER SHIPPING. IT CAME ROLLED UP TIGHTLY AND CAME THROUGH SHIPPING FINE ALTHOUGH YOU CAN ORDER ONLINE AND PICK IT UP AT THE STORE. IT IS SOLD BY WALMART AND QUALIFIES FOR FREE SHIPPING ON THE 5X7 SIZE. THE SOLID COLORS AVAILABLE MAKE IT PERFECT FOR ANY ROOM. IT IS HARDBACK AND IS SPOT CLEAN ONLY. YOU CAN ALSO GET IN RUNNER SIZE (30"X 46") THAT HAS A SKID RESISTANT LATEX BACKING AND IS MACHINE WASHABLE. IT IS MADE IN THE USA. I HAVE ALL KINDS OF ALLERGIES AND IT HASN'T BOTHERED THEM. I FIGURED WHEN I UNROLLED IT THERE WOULD BE A STRONG ODOR AND I WAS A LITTLE LEERY SINCE I AM GETTING OVER AN ALLERGY ATTACK. I AM PLEASANTLY SURPRISED THAT IT DIDN'T. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MANY MANY YEARS OF USAGE.
Attractive rug that adds to room decor!
Received my Mainstays Manchester Shag Rug, Size 5ft x 7ft, today. It was rolled up tight and at first I thought maybe it would not fluff out. I vacuumed it it real good and it did indeed fluff up nicely. It has a shag type look and texture and is very attractive. It only weighed about 15 pounds, so not real heavy. It is easy to handle. There was a little shedding at first, but now I am not seeing that. It is not as plush as I would like. The backing is pretty thin. I wish the pad/backing were thicker. Feels like you are walking on the floor. If you are just looking for a cover rug this one is great. And it does look very nice. I have the beige color. This is a solid color rug which makes it a perfect rug for any room in the home. It's available in a variety of sizes and colors, allowing you to pick the one that is right for your room and decor. I believe the rug is machine-tufted of stain- and fade-resistant olefin yarn. I have the area rug that measures five-foot by seven-foot ..they are hardback and spot clean only. I placed it in my sunroom where it will get lots of wear. It truly adds to the décor. Nice rug and really looks nice. I just wish the padding was thicker.
