I bought a white 2.5" pile polyester shaggy rug 18 months ago for the living room. In heinsight it was a mistake to get such a high pile rug in such a busy area and the costs to get it cleaned now are half the price of the actual rug as it's really badly oil stained.
We are now going to replace it with something around .5 - 1". There's a real lack of rug shops where I am so I'm going to buy it online but the problem is they all look the same in the online pictures. In store I was able to compare a 2.5" polyester to 2.5" polypropylene and the polyster was much nicer - denser and had a more luxurious feel.
With it being a lower pile though, anyone know if there is much difference between the 2? I'm just assuming it's more noticeable when the pile is larger which could be why the pictures look the same. Or will the polyester still look denser? Anyone know?
